Rumor: major PSP Go price drop this Friday in North America There is a new rumor doing the rounds about an alleged price drop the PSP Go starting this Friday. This hasn’t been confirmed yet but all signs point towards this being highly likely.

One of the biggest criticisms regarding the PSP Go is its high price tag. It looks like Sony is willing to escalate a price drop earlier than usual due to low demand.

According to reports via Joystiq, someone from the retail side of things sent a snapshot of a memo indicating a $50 price drop to the device. According to the memo the final retail price starting this Friday will be $199.

CEO of Enterbrain recently predicted that this will be PSP’s most successful year with the number of high profile titles out. He highlighted Monster Hunter Freedom as a dream come true with over five million units sold.

Other upcoming titles:

  • The 3rd Birthday – 2010
  • Resident Evil Portable – 2010 (TBD)
  • God of War: Ghost of Sparta – 2010
  • Patapon 3 – 2010
  • Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Predator – 2010
  • White Knight Chronicles: Dogma Wars – Q1 2011
  • Lord of Arcana – Q1 2011
  • Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3 – Q1 2011
  • God Eater Burst – Q1 2011

    GT5 Delayed once again.

    “We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game’s release will be coming this holiday season.

    We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.

    We’ll have more information for you in the near future.”

    LOL Fuck Sony can’t get anything straight. I knew it. They are pushing Move and are getting the Hard core games out of the way.
    Bastards.

  7. Roca.:

    “Presumably, Kaz wanted to add just one more feature to the game”

    what else is there to be put in the game? Jet Ski? Flying cars? still coming in November though

  8. Roca.:

    Kev should be here any minute now….

  9. phranctoast:

    or his alter ego. Happy.

  10. SW:

    Hes adding the ‘throw the ball in the hole’ Kentucky Derby!

    For those of you who’ve never been on a 1980/90′s English sea side vacation, you line up with 5-6 other people and try to throw a ball in a hole, get the ball in the hole, your horse moves on the track a few inches!

    Kaz, you are a genius!

  11. ncaissie:

    LOL oh, thats worth the delay.
