The Sony PSP certainly has its merits, but so does the Nintendo DS – and that’s considerably cheaper and arguably offers a better range of gaming titles. Well, the company has decided to redress that balance in some way.
You can soon pick up Sony’s handheld for £129.99 after a £50 price cut was announced. It will be applicable from Friday 4th May. That still doesn’t make it comparable to the better-selling Nintendo DS, it’s still £30 more expensive – but Sony would doubtless argue you’re getting more console for your cash.
The company also launched a new batch of lower-priced Platinum titles for the PSP, retailing for £14.99. Those titles are Ridge Racer 2, Tekken, Killzone, Loco Roco, and Moto GP.
