The PSP Also Gets a Price Drop In Europe

The PSP-3000 has been sitting at a shiny new low price point in the US since February, but Europeans (only those who live in places that use euro), those most dedicated of PSP buyers, have been stuck at the old, not-shiny price. But that all changes today!

Sony has announced that the PSP-300 is finally getting a price drop in that region as well — it’ll go from 170 euro down to 129 euro, sorta like in the US except for the fact that the euro is worth like 40% re than the US dollar right now, and that 129 euro translates to about $185, which is more than the PSP-3000 cost here before the price drop. I’m only laughing on the inside, Europe. We may not have a working government in my country, but we do have a cheaper PSP.

The whole standard of living over here is more expensive though, but it’s made up for by higher wages. It’s why you’ll see more Euro tourists in the US at the moment than Americans in the E.U., it’s cheaper for us to visit you!

OT: The price drop is too little too late. Everyone who wants a PSP already has one, this little drop is probably not going to sway anyone on the benches…
