PSP go drops to $150 in the US following PSP-3000 cut

Thursday, 3rd March 2011 17:39 GMT By Patrick Garratt

A week after cutting PSP-3000 models to $129.99 in the US, Sony has dropped PSP Go by $50 to $149.99 in the region.

SCEA’s site has updated its official PSP site to read, “Now you can enjoy the sleek, totally-digital PSP Go system for $149.99 MSRP and the unsurpassed PSP-3000 system for $129.99 MSRP,” as noticed by Gama.

Sony released PSP Go in October 2009 for $249, cutting it to $199 a year later.

Sony’s price-cutting of PSP is a lead-in to the release of NGP later this year.

Since PSP released in 2004, the machine has sold 67.8 million units worldwide, 23 million of which were sold in North America.

    Its worth $150 serious just for being a PS1 on the go and MP3 and MP4 player with web and skype capabilities its worth that. Also carrying digital comics and pics around easily. They need to release multiple colors now like pink,blue,that MGS mint green.

    I got a PSPgo when I got ahold of COD:BlackOps early and someone was willing to trade me a brand new PSPgo for it. At the time, it was like ummm let me see……$65 trade for a $200-$250 product…….HEEEELLZZZZ YEAH.

    So since then I’ve been a fan of the PSPgo and have a 16GB M2 card in addition to the built in 16GB. I put all my PS1 classics on there and all my digital PSP games, plus a bunch of movies that my son watches on long rides to my parents.

    I like it. But i wouldn’t have bought it for $200 or higher. This price drop is nice – and good to see they’re getting ready for PSP2 pricing.
