Sony admits the PSPGo is priced wrong, will try educate consumers about it

1 min read


Sony’s Rob Dyer has been chatting to industry gamers about all things PSP and has specifically mentioned that price point of the PSPGo.. you know the one I am talking about? The idiotically high price for something that accomplishes less than a standard PSP and doesn’t have Blu-Ray as a trumpcard.

Well it seems that Sony has realised the errors of it’s way by stating

“Yeah, I think the higher price point didn’t help matters any either”

But then he goes onto say

“So we’re going back and re-communicating, and I’m sitting here looking at multiple decks on what we’re going to do this year. You’ll see a lot of things coming out from us to better educate and inform the consumer”

Um, we don’t want to be educated about why it costs so much, we want a massive price cut and a UMD-PSPGo transformer. I realise it defeats the point of the PSPGo as people will then just transform their pirated copies but us legit gamers don’t really want to throw out our UMD Collections.

      He’ll probably say with the UMD removed it prolongs battery life and has a built in 16GB internal… not to mention a new sleek look… And the best of all… And the best of all… is um… It is exactly the same ass all the previous PSP versions

    Give me a way to get the games I have on UMD onto the device, be it at a small “service fee” or whatever and I’ll consider getting one.
