It’s taken less than a week, but UK online gadget purveyors have already slashed the cost of the PSPgo, dropping the slick new slider from £225 to £199. Now that sub 200 nicker tag has woken you up, read on and we’ll tell you where you can furnish yourself with one.
Amazon, Play, HMV and GAME have all abandoned Sony’s somewhat hefty RRP for the PSPgo. The move comes 7 days after the new fangled version of Sony’s handheld hub hit the streets.
In the wake of E3, punters had been told the PSPgo would start at £249, mirroring the dollar price for our tech loving pals across the pond. So such a significant drop at this stage is a surprise.
The question remains, why have these big players decided now is the time for a price cut? Is the PSPgo really doing that badly? We won’t know until official figures emerge in the next few months, but with UMD gone and the lack of a capacious hard drive, don’t be surprised if things haven’t gone as swimmingly as planned for Sony.
