PSP’s Price Drops To $130
According to the official Playstation blog, the PSP will be dropping to $130 dollars.
Since launching in 2005, the PSP platform has had a profound impact on the way we play games while on-the-go, pushing the boundaries for cross-media entertainment and setting the benchmark for quality for portable games – not to mention selling 23 million* units to date in North America and more than 67 million worldwide. Today we’re very excited to announce that the PSP-3000 system will be available for a new low price of $129.99 (MSRP) starting February 27, 2011, offering its greatest value to date. In addition, going forward PSP Entertainment Packs will be available for $159.99 (MSRP); bringing you everything you need to experience the PSP system and an even better value.
I may actually finally jump on board with the platform. I think there are a lot of great games on the system and being that it is nearing the end of the console’s life cycle, you may be able to find some deals in the future on stores clearing out stock. The PSP is one of the most misunderstood platforms out there. It seems like it cost too much (to lure people away from Nintendo) or played to the wrong market (tried to play into the Ipod crowd). But nevertheless, I have always heard great things about it.
