Sony slashes price of PSP to $130 Sony has announced today that it is slashing the price of the PSP handheld to $130, a full $40 discount.
Additionally, PSP Entertainment Packs will sell for $160.

The price cut comes as PSP sales have continued to collapse, and on the heels of Sony's announcement of the next-generation NGP handheld, which will launch by the end of the year.

Sony's updated pricing goes into effect on February 27th.

The NGP adds dual micro-analog sticks, giving gamers a feature they begged for on the original PSP.

The device has a massive 5-inch multi-touch OLED screen with 960544 resolution, a multi-touch panel on the back and will run on a quad-core ARM cortex processor.

Sony has added tilt-sensitive SIXAXIS controls, standard and front-side cameras, GPS, an electric compass, Wi-Fi and 3G support, and access to Android gaming.

If they were hackable they might sell them but since the new ones can't be hacked it's just dead last gen technology that nobody wants.

Either way they should be brought down to $100 not $130. There's hardly a spark of life left in them, and frankly they need to be removed from much needed shelf space.
