Price cut heading for PSPgo

Even before release day, the PSPgo suffered from bad publicity mainly due the early announcement of allowing the gamer to only being able to download content with Sony doing away with the UMD drive altogether.

Then there was the pricing of the unit… At $250 brand-spanking new, the PSPgo wasn’t going to do itself any favours.

Well it now looks like Sony’s poorly-received handheld will be receiving a price cut of around $50. News comes via Joystiq, as an online retailer is said to be price-cutting the console in a couple of days.

In trying to tempt new customers to purchase one of these, offers of free games (10 in fact) have been rife but we think this just wasn’t enough and just didn’t cut it to make the console worthy of our hard-earned cash.

At the moment, nothing has been said as to whether or not the PSPgo in the UK will be receiving such a slashed down price but it does seem inevitable, especially if Sony are really wanting to dish out a few more of these handheld to satisfy and make up for their losses.

Now that it seems the PSPgo will be getting a $50 price cut, is this enough? We don’t think so. Let us know what you think. Has this changed your mind about buying one??
