$5 is hardly a "slash," but still, weird.
5 bucks....5 BUCKS! Ud thk Amazon would make it like $229.99 or somethg. I want this really bad for the Skype and the looks, but its just too expensive. My friend already has one and its the most attractive device ive ever seen next to the iphone..maybe better actually. I heard a rumor that Sony ill launch an 8gb version for 200 bucks. This makes alot of sense.
who approved this story? NEXT!
it is hardly a slash... but it's not weird. Amazon is constantly knocking a few bucks off items. Any little thing to push consumers to buy and save a few bucks. And depending on stock you can see any product change a few bucks up or down any given day...
Please, amazon pretty much does that with every video game before it's even released. Lackluster sales? I think not.
"In what might be a response to lackluster sales, Amoco gas stations slashed there gas prices from $2.80 to $2.79. This surely spells doom and glower for all Amoco employees, relatives, and well-wishers." Honestly people will grab at anything to try to tear Sony down, get a life you trash journalist.
How is $5 "slashed"? I was expecting $25 or $50 but $5 is more like a chip.
they always do this $5 or $3 off on most things
oh boy oh boy oh boy! a $5 price SLASH. This so totally makes it worth it
Will $5 be the difference between 'Hell no!' and 'OMG, ordering now!'? Answer: no.... P.S. Still getting AC White PSP3000 in November, personally.
Time for the bargain bin. That was fast.
Wow, doesn't this website realize that amazon usually sells everything cheaper.
Fastest price drop ever?
that record belongs to ODST
that PSPgo sales were phenomenal!
the $5 is out of Amazon's pocket not SONY's. Take a look at the 'also bought list'...those are pure profit makers and if Amazon can take a $5 hit to sell a few more cradles and pouches they're making more than they would otherwise. It is also more profitable (at least in the short term) for them to sell a go than a 3000.
Good comment. And this article is pure bullsh!t. I'm really tired of these biased f*ing articles all over the internet that are just negative OPINIONS trying to be passed off as facts. To the author of the article: the PSP Go has a point: PORTABILITY. That's why there's no UMD drive and why it relies on digital distribution. And the fact that you can't transfer your UMDs is not a negative thing IF YOU DON'T OWN UMDs to begin with. Any retard would realize that. One last thing: where the hell is the author getting his sales numbers from? His ass, most likely, because as far as I know the sales of the Go have not been "lackluster".
Wow. Now theres only a $75 difference betweeen the 3000 and the Go. Makes it all the more tempting. I'll stick with my DS and get an Ipod touch thank u very much.
DS= kids device ipod or iphone= crap games. Thank you very much.
Grown up people with a DS, and no kids around, look really really bad. DS + iPod touch much more expensive than PSP Go.
My PSP 2000 is one of the best gadgets I've ever bought at a neat price (£130). Awesome graphics that still blow me away today. UMD movies as good as dvd on a small screen. Brilliant games that are FUN - Loco, GOW, Resistance, Daxter, etc. with some amazing games to come (GT, Motorstorm, LBP, Assassins, MGS..). And bought 8GB card for £10 on Amazon. All that for £140! When all this is so good and cheap - Why Sony, why bring out a very similar but so expensive upgrade that has smaller screen, no UMD, no USB for charging-PS3 connection-camera-GPS for £230? SOLUTION: 32GB & in-built camera (5mega-pixel, not 1.3) and charge £180 in time for xmas and I would buy one. But for now I'll stick with my small miracle of technological innovation aka PSP 2000!!
yo momma foo!!!
Well since you say it sucks that must mean you own one or you would really have no clue whether it sucks or not. In that case i would gladly take it off your hands. After playing my PSPgo my wife really wants one of her own.
LOL at sensationalist title.
Dammit...$45 more and I would've bought one
is that there is a LOT more profit margin in the PSPgo than the PSP at current prices. SONY has given this 'extra' profit to retailers to incentivise the sale of the go since there are no retail game sales to follow. If a retailer chooses to take a smaller cut and make it up in volume (which is what Amazon is positioned to do) it is good for the consumer, makes NO difference to SONY's bottom line and good for Amazon if they can push the volumes of sales up. But please...keep on slamming the go it make for nice hits on websites.
psp go is way to expensive ..we know that it needs a 30-50 dollar price cut
I think if sony was smart theyd sale the psp go at $99 id spend a whole lot on digital content for games i dont have and play my umds on current psp. For $99 i can justify it as seeing all future games as digital downloads but anything above that no!
LMFAO!!!!!!! You sir are one cheap bastard!!!!!!!
$5!? Wow that makes such a huge difference! I'm sure PSPgo sales will skyrocket on Amazon now! /Sarcasm
why do you and everybody around you seem to think that people are unable to detect sarcasm, therefore you need to blatantly state it?
"why do you and everybody around you seem to think that people are unable to detect sarcasm, therefore you need to blatantly state it?" You'd be surprised on how many comments people take seriously. So a lot of the times people still need to put the /sarcasm tag. I went the other route and just went with a sarcasm name altogether.
That takes way to long to do this... /sarcasm
What the heck is with all the adjectives today? First, there was an "INSANE!" deal on Brutal Legend...which was $5 off. Now we have Amazon "SLASHING!" the price of PSP Go by $5. I really wish these website-hit whores would just go away.
Amazon pretty much cuts $5 off of everything. Almost every game is $56.99 and other things are just barely below MSRP...
tempting, but I'll wait
Next thing you know a new game with a reduced price will be labeled as a "desperate" move by either MS or Sony just cause some game is cheaper for a week than msrp... pathetic article
Author has a point when he mentioned that the PSPGo was only $50 less than a PS3 slim. That is a huge turn off for people. Again Sony prices a product out the ballpark and hopes fans will support it. If they announced it at $199.99, people would fly all over it because they have to understand that every game is a download. Nothing is transferable and you'll be starting from scratch. Why not make a better PSP with analog sticks?
Just wait till black friday if you want a deal cuz i am.
