You may have heard yesterday that Sony quietly announced a global price cut for their flop PSP Go, but how will a $50 price cut really change things for the company particularly when the PSP 2 is already on the horizon.
If you case you missed it, Sony announced that the PSP Go is now available for $199, down from the original price of $249. The cut is also effective in Europe and Japan with the new price set at £159.99, discounted from £199.99 and ¥16,800 for the Japanese market ($200/£132).
While hardware price cuts are always welcome, we doubt there will be many of you rushing to stores straight away to buy a PSP Go at the new price point, as $199 may still seem too much in some gamer’s eyes.
The new price cut may appeal to consumers who have never owned a PSP system in the past, but to everyone else who still has a standard PSP, it still isn’t worth it.
Let us know your thoughts on this.
