Sony drops PSPgo price to $199

Sony has announced today that they are dropping the price of the PSPgo handheld in the United States and Japan. Just in time for the holiday season, you’ll be able to pick up the digital download-supported device for $199 (or 16,800 yen).

With Sony’s track record of releasing new iterations of the PSP, coupled with the lackluster support that they’ve shown the PSPgo after its launch, this is still too much for me to pay. It’s a cool piece of kit but I still see no reason whatsoever for its existence alongside the standard PSP system.

Knocking fifty bucks off the asking price isn’t enough for me. Does it sway you?
