PSPgo price to be slashed

Written by David Stellmack
sony

Friday to see price go down $50
Sources are confirming to us that Sony will officially announce that they will be slashing the price of the PSPgo in North America by $50. This will bring the price of the unit down to $199.

The move is an attempt to get inventory sold, as the device has taken massive flack since release for its high price tag in conjunction with being a download-only unit. The price cut of $50 is said to be only for the North American market and will come Friday, October 15th. It is unknown if Sony will move to slash the price in other markets, as well.

Sony has tried a number of other moves in an effort to gain some traction for the PSPgo; but despite the promotions that it has run, it has been unable to really get sales going on the unit. At least for the time being, Sony apparently has no plans to discontinue the unit, but if sales don’t pick up our sources tell us that the discontinuance of the PSPgo is a very real possibility.

PSPgo was a Failure because they though that people wanted In memory games instead of normal Cds just because the homebrew community was very strong, PSPgo would sell as hot pancakes if they made it open to homebrew again, people doesnt want to buy all games online and expend money on Memorycards, they want to play with emulators, and ports, thats what made the old PSPs good, the ability to have a Custom Firmware installed on them.

If Sony wasn't so gready asking more than the rrp on the slaystation store then peeople might have considered buying them.

Also would have been a good idea to sell codes at vendors like game, gamestation and other high street stores. Still I hope that they continue to support the people who have bought 1.

it was a nice idea, just the cost made it really unattractive imo.and in terms of preference, i actually preferred the design of the slim/light and 3000 series

Ebay slash it months before. It kinda hurt selling my Go with over $150 worth of games for less than 2 bills. Brand spanking new condition :(

[insert moan]
