« on: March 16, 2006, 02:04:56 pm »
March 15, 2006 - Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America announced a new hardware package for the PSP. Beginning March 22nd, the new package will only feature the PSP system, AC adaptor and battery for a new suggested retail price of $199.99. According to Jack Tretton, executive vice president and co-COO of SCEA, "The PSP is the first portable device to deliver upon the promise of console quality game play, and together with the ever evolving multimedia capabilities, provides consumers with functionality never seen before in a portable device." He followed this statement by saying, "This new price point demonstrates our ongoing commitment to provide the best entertainment experiences, at affordable prices."

SCEA also announced that a new USB Camera will be coming for the system in honor of its first anniversary in the spring. Additionally, it plans on releasing additional accessories and functionality for the portable system at a later date.

I knew they'd make a camera for the PSP eventually.  I just didn't know when.  There also making an e-mail thing for it.  I want to get those.  And a 2 gig memory stick.  I wish I could afford that stuff.  :(

I'm glad the price dropped, as every price eventually does. 0-0. PSP2? I may as well wait for that.

As in the PSP thread, I said, I'll just sell my PSP to get a PSP2. I'll sell it for $200 and use maybe like $50 or whatnot to finish the cost.

i dont even invest in taht. First, it is not money-saving. You see the price of those memory sticks, it adds up. Plus, if i wanted all that stuff, ill jsut pull out a laptop and use a ps2 modulator some i dont have to buy my favorite games all over again just to have them on mini discs that you cant use for anything else. You cant even burn your own UMD's, so if you want your favorite movie or something, you have to pay for it twice! I find it very rediculous.

The PSP2 hasn't even been confirmed yet. I've yet to see any reliable sources post about it.

I might consider buying this now. Wait a minute, is this only in the US, or in Canada to?

Oh, and the PSP2 hasnt even been confirmed yet, so there probably isnt going to be one for a long time. PS2 has been around for about 5 years now, the PSP will probably share the same life-cycle.
