PSP Go Price Goes Back to $200 After 3 Days

Late last month, Sony announced a price drop for the PSP-3000, bringing it down to $129.99. That left a few wondering what would happen to the PSP Go, which at the time kept its same price. Then, last Thursday, the price of the PSP Go dropped down to $149.99.

However, it seems this new $150 price tag was not meant to be. The price is now back to $199.99 just three days later. Sony has not given a reason for the yo-yo pricing of the PSP Go. However, it's possible someone pushed the button too early on this one, as the $150 price seems to have only appeared on the company's own site; the new, discounted price never made it to the websites of third-party retailers.

Were you one of the people considering a $149.99 PSP Go but have now decided to back out or wait and see if it drops back down again? Let us know in the comments below!

    Oddly enough, I was considering getting one because I don't have a car and wanted to keep myself entertained on my bus rides to work. Oh well maybe I'll get the psp phone

    Wow!

    Sounds like a cheap marketing strategy.

    Look at all the free advertising they got on countless electronic news websites.

    That could be why they did it ;).

    Down with Sony.

  • After the way Sony has been acting over all the PS3 jailbreaking and hacking, I dont think I'll be buying a product from them again. Someone will hack the NGP and it will be like the PS3 all over again. The PS1 was hacked to play pirated games along with the PS2. Where were you then Sony? You didnt seem to care much back then. Now all of a sudden its a big deal? Its just a bunch of Bull.
