PSP Go Gets Green Light for Price Cut



Well, Sony has finally decided to cut the price of the PSP Go from the original $249 to $199.

Ahh yes, the PSP Go; Sony's hand-crampingly sad attempt at anti-piracy for their one and only portable gaming system. The PSP Go used an on board flash memory combined with Playstation Network downloads for games, rather than the UMD disks of the original PSP. The hope was to stop pirates from acquiring and playing free games via custom firmware, but instead it only stopped sales. Not only was the design a complete failure, the PSP3000 was far cheaper, and the price tag of the Go was nearly matching PS3 and Xbox360.

This may not be ground-breaking news, but the hope is Sony has realized how shitty their most recent handheld revision is. We can only pray they have learned from this for the sake of the PSP2's future (yes the PSP2 is coming).

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I've been working crazy shifts. Hopefully more content will be put out this week!

I lost all interest in Sony products after they cut OtherOS functionality from the PS3. A jerk move for sure.
