I ran across a story on Games Industry today about how Sony are confident that the high price of the PSPGo won’t be a barrier to success.
Which got me interested as Sony said something very similar when they released the PS3 originally so I wanted to see if they had learned from their previous mistakes and apparently they haven’t.
The PSPGo is priced at GBP224 or EUR249, a mere EUR50 less than the PS3 itself and about 10000% less powerful.
Thankfully Sony hasn’t told us to go get a second job to buy this one but they do mention that since they now offer European PSN vouchers we can turn to our children and say
â€œYou’ve got your own money, you choose what you want to buy on the network so go buy a voucherâ€
So honestly do you really think that this is a fair price for the drive-less PSPGo even if it does give us the ability to shirk our parenting responsibilities?
Let’s also not forget that we will be getting a coupon to download GT PSP on release as well which sweetens the deal somewhatâ€¦
