The always-in-demand Sony’s only portable gaming console PSP (PlayStation Portable) gets a price drop for Indian customers. To date Sony PSP priced Rs. 9,450/-, has been reduced by 15% to Rs. 7,990/-.
This price drop is for the PSP3000 series (PSP 3004) Forever, and not for the new PSP GO series. Sony PSP GO will still be available at the same price of Rs. 12,990/-.
This price drop occurred due to the announcement of the next gen PSP console, Sony PlayStation Portable 2 which is appearing this year end, probably in December 2011.
It was also announced that, Indian PSP users will get three new Indian games to play soon, after the company releases them. These will be Cart Kings, Chandragupta Warriors and Battle Royal after the DesiAdda bundle.
PSP prices were always high, this was why according to us many gamers or portable gamers shifted towards the Apple iPod Touch or Nintendo DSi. PSP price drop should have happened a long time ago, but then better late than never! The new prices are close to the PS2 console which is better in all aspects.
If anyone is deciding on buying it, the price is good, however we would suggest that buyers wait for the next generation release which has awesome specs and will be a faster device.
