PSPgo set for price cut?

US gamers getting cheaper console, will we be next?

$50 drop shows Sony still desperate to shift poorly-received handheld.

The PSPgo is being lined up for yet another price drop, as Sony desperately looks to shift the downloads-only console which has failed to catch on since its debut this time last year.

One US retailer is said to be slashing the price of the console by $50, down to just $200 (£126). That’s according to Joystiq, which says the cut-price console could be available Stateside from this Friday.

There’s no word on whether the current UK RRP of £224.99 will get the same treatment, but it wouldn’t be a surprise. Ever since its arrival the PSPgo has been the centre of generous offers in a bid to make it compete with the Nintendo DS. You can currently land one with 10 free games.

Will a price drop be enough to convince you the PSPgo is the way forward? Or is it too little, too late for the beleaguered gadget? Tell us on Facebook and Twitter now.
