PSP-3000 will sell alongside PSP Go because there’s still an opportunity to sell disc-based portables, SCEE president Andrew House told GI at E3.

“The decision to push [PSP Go] alongside PSP 3000 is absolutely the right one because there’s still a very large, untapped market there for a traditional, package media-based portable gaming,” said the exec.

“This allows us to extend into other areas. The beauty is that we can respond to consumer’s tastes and balance the two platforms against each other.

“There’s a price point difference between them and we’ll monitor that as we go along.”

PSP Go was announced at a splendid $250/€250 launch price at E3.

There’s a fill interview through there.
