It has been a while since we last heard any details on the upcoming Sony NGP in terms of a price point, but now we have some rumors for you. These rumors are somewhat more appealing that the average speculation though, as it has surfaced from game developers Ubisoft.
It turns out that a research firm called Toluna are running a survey on the NGP or PSP2, and this survey is in fact officially sponsored by Ubisoft. The question asked though was the most interesting part, as you can see below, as reported from Kotaku:

“The retail price of the Sony NGP is expected to be around $350. Would you purchase the Sony NGP now that you know this retail price?”
The thing is, we don’t actually know this retail price, as Sony hasn’t announced it yet, unless of course Ubisoft know something we don’t. You should be aware that this $350 price relates to the 3G version of the model, while the standard version of the NGP is meant to be set at $250 according to the survey.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you be happy paying $350 for the 3G version? Either way, $250 is a very good price for the standard edition if it turns out to be correct. Don’t forget that Sony has already stated that pricing for the NGP would be ‘affordable’, so $250 sounds about right to us.
