It’s probably not the best time to purchase a PSP, since work on Sony's next handheld is well underway, but if you're on the hunt, you'll probably be happy to know that the price is about to drop on the PSP-3000. According to a recent PS blog post, starting this February 27, the cost for will shoot down to a more agreeable $129.99 price point. Also, those “entertainment packs” will receive a cut, too. You’ll be looking at $159.99 on those.
But, wait, that’s not all--Sony is also opening up its PSP Greatest Hits library to more games. Soon, the following will be available with special packaging at $19.99:
- Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines
- Dissidia Final Fantasy
- Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker
- Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
- Resistance: Retribution
- Toy Story 3: The Video Game
And the following will receive a “Favorites” listing, which takes the price down to $9.99:
- Crisis Core
- Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
- Killzone: Liberation
- SOCOM US Navy SEALS: Fire Team Bravo
- Tomb Raider Anniversary
As you’ve probably noticed via omission thus far, the PSPgo will continue to be sold at $199.99, but I’ll note that some online retailers, including GameStop, are out of stock at the moment. Think Sony's going to keep restocking those, or is the PSPgo slowly getting discontinued?
