It looks like Sony isn't following the ever-popular "give U.K. products the same numerical price as U.S. products and pretend the value of their monetary denominations are equal" strategy for the PSP Go
. Instead, Sony's attached a £224.99 price tag
to the slide-screened handheld -- which is still considerably more expensive than £179.99, the very first PSP's U.K. price point.
Still, it's a well-known fact the good people of the United Kingdom possess an unnatural, caveman-esque fear of Universal Media Discs -- we're sure they won't mind shilling out the extra poundage.
