Sony Drops PSP Go Down to $150

Late last month, Sony announced a price drop for the PSP-3000 moving 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. Now, however, we find out that the PSP Go has dropped down to $149.99.

It's official now on the U.S. PlayStation site here, so the price should be in effect everywhere.

Budgets aside, with the Nintendo 3DS just around the corner and the NGP/PSP2 already a sure thing, these older systems seem more like older, quick fixes for portable gaming.

We would still lean towards the $129.99 PSP-3000, thanks to its UMD slot that opens up the door for many more games at budget prices.

    Even then you've been robbed.

    Bring on the NGP already, we all know it's going to be a box of concentrated win, just kill off this generation and be done with it.

    Same here... if it's $99, I'm all over it. Subsidize the PSP so we can buy games which is the most expensive part. For $149... I'll try to pocket a used Wii. Just kidding. But I'd definitely by it for $99.

    It's a good purchase, as the NGP won't be backwards compatible with PSP games.
    So if you want to access the PSP's game library, now's a great time.

    A: No, it is still a PSP Go. Buy a PSP 3000 instead, they're cheaper. Or just get a 3DS or NGP when they come out. I really wish they just called it PSP2. I might just start calling it that anyway.
