Sony's official PSP website
has been updated to reflect an apparent PSP Go price drop. "Now you can enjoy the sleek, totally-digital PSP Go system for $149.99 MSRP," reads the product description, "and the unsurpassed PSP-3000 system for $129.99 MSRP." The 3000 price cut was made official
last week, but the would-be PSP Go discount is news to us.
Apparently, it would be
news to retailers too! As of publishing, outlets including Amazon
, Best Buy
all have the hardware listed at $200 (the price put into effect
last October). Given the phasing out of UMD (disc-based PSP games won't be backwards compatible with NGP
), people might consider using the all-digital Go at a stepping stone at the new, reduced price. That is, if Sony ever decides to make the price cut happen.
