PSP3000′s price goes down to $129.99

Starting today, the official price of the PSP 3000 went down to 129.99$ in the US, which is a nice price cut if you still don’t have one. And you might want to install a Homebrew Enabler or a Light Custom Firmware on it, while you’re at it.

Sony also mentioned in the press release that the PSP now has almost 600 titles to play with, including some major hits such as Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines, LittleBigPlanet, or Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for 19.99$. (Note: as I type this, these 3 games are actually available for less than 15$ on Amazon)



This is probably a way for Sony to get rid of the last stocks of PSP before they start massive promotion of the upcoming NGP, but given the good game library of the PSP and the price, it sounds like a good deal to me (that, and the fact that most PSPs are hackable nowadays, there’s no fear of getting one that wouldn’t run homebrews)

Unlike the PSP Go, the PSP 3000 supports UMD games, which can be found for relatively cheap on the second-hand market. Despite being less portable than the PSPGo, the PSP3000 has many good points compared to its sister :)

    i know in Australia, they are like $189, so if the price drop comes over here it would be a nice little sum you save yourself… maybe a few titles there talking about(if you didnt just buy it to run homebrew’s)…

    Nice, hope other countries adopt the new price, but is unlikely. My sister bought her PSP 2000 in 2008 for around $350 and I bought mine, a second-hand PSP 300, a year later for $175. Now, a new PSP 3000 is around that price but on retail stores, they still charge you around $300 but it comes with three games: Rachet and Clank, Daxter and some other I don’t remember. It’s even cheaper than a DSi but most kids here in Peru have that, not PSPs.
