US PSP Gets An Official Price Cut

GamesIndustry.biz is currently reporting that Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has confirmed that the price of the Core PSP has been cut in the US. It has been revealed that $30 has been officially knocked up the price of a Core pack over in the states and it now retails at £169.99 instead of £199.99. A similar price cut for the PSP has not been confirmed for Europe with Sony saying “we have no announcements to make about the PSP in the European market at this time.”

With the price of the Core Pack in America now at $169.99 a direct conversion into GBP results in a possible price of £85 for the unit but heading into any store in the UK will show you that the Core pack still has a RRP of £150 over here which really does seem a little but unfair.
