PSP Go devices will now sell for just under $200, Sony announced this week.
PSP Go, the latest iteration of Sony's popular portable gaming platform, is getting a price cut. According to Reuters, the PSP Go will soon sell for $199, down fifty bucks from the original price tag of $249. Plenty of online stores – including Amazon.com – are already listing the PSP Go at the reduced price point.
"Like Nintendo's done with the DSi, Sony is extending (and, it hopes, revitalizing) a portable platform that's sold tens of millions of units worldwide," CNET noted at the time. "Considering that this is an evolutionary product – the only real appeal is the smaller form factor – the high price is certainly going to be a barrier for those who already own and enjoy the existing PSP."
