“We will shoot for an affordable price” for PSP2- Sony
That's the rear of the system, just in case you were wondering.
With all the crazy new specs having been revealed for the PSP2 (NGP), we must all be wondering how many thousand dollars it’ll cost. We need not worry, Sony says they’ll price it reasonably, so that it’s “affordable in the handheld hardware space.” Hmm, so that means just a few thousand dollars.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Andrew House did tell EuroGamer: “I can’t put a ballpark on it in terms of figures, but what I would say is that we will shoot for an affordable price that’s appropriate for the handheld gaming space.”
He also said they’ll look to make profit on the sales from Day 1. “Ideally we would want to have our hardware be profitable, in addition to our software,” he said. “We’ve experienced both sides and we know which one we like to be on!” Does that mean a high price tag? I hope not. Because I’ve experienced both sides of price tags, and I know which one I want to be on.
