U.S. Sony PSP release date set Sony Computer Entertainment America has finally confirmed a date for the American release of its PSP (Playstation Portable) console. The console will be released on March 24th 2005 and will include a 32MB Memory Stick Duo, Headphones, Soft case, sample disc and screen cleaning cloth in the value pack, which is the same as the Japanese release. The value pack will cost $249.99 US. Also, the first one million Value packs will include the feature film Spiderman 2 in UMD format. There has been no official game release line-up unveiled just yet however but it is expected very soon.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe still has not set any official date for the European release of the PSP console. However, the U.S. retail price of $249.99 has some gamers worried about the price of the console in Europe. The rumoured price to expect in the UK will be 180. With the console being launched so late in March it is very unlikely that the European release date will be set for March also.

The console itself (not the vale pack) will only cost $199 right? Or $150?

I don't think you are gonna have the option of buying the psp console alone. When it gets released you are gonnna have to buy the "value" pack. I checked on eb games, they are taking pre-orders for the psp at $399. THat's for the value pack, plus 3 games at $39.99, plus one accessory at $29.99. They won't take pre-orders just for the console itself, neither for the value pack alone. THat's crazy. They should make a "super mega combo" and add the new slim ps2 and sell it for $550. Yeah, like money grows on trees.
