When Sony announced you’d get a free download code for Gran Turismo PSP when you purchased the PSPgo, they forgot one tiny detail: the price of the handheld itself. Seems my speculation earlier today was bang on the money.
Sony has confirmed the PSPgo will launch in Australia on October 1 and retail for $449.95. That’s in line with the European price points, but considerably more expensive than the US.
It’s also—remarkably—just $50 shy of the price of the new PS3 Slim. Quite how the vastly different technology in the two boxes adds up to such similar figures is surely baffling to all those outside the Sony bean counters.
Who’s getting a PSPgo?
