Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter has told IndustryGamers that he “sincerely regrets” saying Sony is “ripping off” punters with PSP Go’s pricing.

“I sincerely regret the choice of words in my response to Geoff Keighley’s question in last week’s Bonus Round, where I said that Sony is ‘ripping off’ the consumer by pricing the PSP Go at $249.99,” he said.

“I made a poor choice of words, and I do NOT think that Sony is doing anything nefarious in choosing their pricing strategy.”

The full statement’s through there. PSP Go launches on October 1.
