PSPGo Price Drop Spotted, Imminent

The PSPgo is an interesting piece of tech. It is an ultraportable gaming console, and is download-only. But with no UMD drive and a hefty price tag of $250, it has always been a bit tough of a sell. However, a recent sighting may indicate that a price drop is on the way.

If a recently-spotted posting by an Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) employee is to be believed, then the PSPgo is going to see a price drop of $50 on October 15th (this Friday) in America. The system will likely still come with vouchers for downloads of SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3, LittleBigPlanet, and Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters. Whether or not this price drop is going to go in effect at other retailers remains to be seen, and Sony has not given any statement regarding the matter. With recent rumors of a PSP2 in development, will this spur sales of the PSPgo? Stay connected with PlayStation LifeStyle for more on this as it develops.
