CVG: Sony's this morning revealed the hugely impressive PSP2 - or Next Generation Portable - spewing forth a tidal wave of eyebrow-raising details. However, it left one big question mark still hanging in the air: the console's price.
300$ is my limit.
350$ with or without a game bundled.
250 English Pounds and not a penny more!
I would pay around £250, which is 397.95 U.S. dollars.
You can preorder a 3ds for around £200, so £250 would be about right.
300€ add 50€ with must have games and software.
$300-ish or less would be nice.
Yesterday if I was asked this question I would have said no more than £250. Today I would be willing to pay anything, top get my mitts on it!
...particularly since I have so many downloadable games now for my PS3 that I haven't played thanks to PS+ and I expect to be able to use those games on the PSP2. I don't feel I'd need a game bundled with it since I already have games to play.
+ my soul. And an arm. Okay. Okay. Fine. Over 9000.
Yea...with all that stuff I'd pay about 350 for it too.
300 to 350 for me.
$349.99 hopefully it doesn't go over that amount because i just need this masterpiece :-)
Earlier I was quoted as saying $400. That answer still stands, however I wouldn't mind if it was $300. If its much more than that I will need to save a little bit more. If Sony didn't take a loss per unit there is no doubt it would be much much more. Considering high end cell phones cost $500 to $700 its amazing PSP2 will have all the specs listed by launch, will cost much less, and go without cell phone carrier subsidizing.
I will agree with you, still its not a phone but its 3G caps will probably suspend it in the range of the Super Phones.
Shanks has my agreement. Even tho I feel its going to hit 350. Also I am going to sadly wait. Its exiting and even I want this over Nintendos 3DS, I dont really see the 3D as that much of a innovator. But the problem is all the stream videos are grainy and we really haven't see that much. I am waiting till the launch is full of titles to range from and the future looks bright. BUT first I have to see gameplay from a hands on. Because the Stream one is BAD.
£300 with a game would be my maximum.. i think thats around $350 or so. But i think $300/£250 would be the perfect price. they did say they would make a loss with this to begin with apparently, so in a way thats kind of comforting.
Same here, hopefully £300 with a game and carry case.
If Sony is smart, and has learned from the high price mistake with the PS3, then I hope it's at least between $250 and $300 so it'll be around the same price as the 3DS. This thing is not as powerful as a PS3 and shouldn't cost more than one. I also hope they release a wifi only version.
...I'd loose my mind! This thing would be sold out for ages. That would be an incredibly sweet price point.
250 to 300$, I think is the perfect price range to compete with 3DS. make it happen... please make it happen Sony..
^^^ Don't expect it to be 300$ when your essentually getting A PS3 portable with touch screen, ODLE and 3G, 300 euros seems about right
What ever it costs.
I kid, i kid. I hoping for 350$ or less. Please don't dissapoint Sony !
Depends. If it gets even better then this, $350 max.
Seeing as how the most powerful mobile phones are $500 new and this is even more powerful (albeit with no cellular capabilities), I see it costing $300-$400
Thats exactly what i was thinking ;-)
I hope you guys are wrong. :(
@ ElementX The PSP2/NGP has 3G data capabilities. I'm not sure if it will have 3G voice though. There is always Skype. I agree though that $300-$400 seems fair considering high end mobile phones are much more expensive. The Verizon iPhone 4 coming out has an unsubsidized price of $650 for the 16 GB and $750 for the 32 GB. It makes me wonder how much memory Sony is going to bundle with the PSP2. Hopefully more rather than less.
Apple always overprices their products, not to mention Phones in general tend to be a lot smaller and slimmer than NGP even aims to be, making the components cost even more or suffer in performance. NGP seems to be the same size as original psp making it almost double the size of iPhone , thats a lot more room. http://kotaku.com/5744563/l...
350 for me
I really think 350.00.
when psp first came out in uk it was 300£,id be willing to pay 300-400£. lets face it,this thing is more powerful than any current smart phone and those things unlockt are around 350-450£
Difference is. They are Phones! to be used for all sorts of things an maknig calls an texting. This device Cannot make calls or do txts. So stop with the dumb comparison. Who wants to pay £400 for just a handheld gaming device? lol A smartphone does more than JUST games.
If you think it's Sony I think it'll cost for sure higher than 400 usd.
300! 250 would be great tho.
$475 no more
Very impressive, but it needs to be a phone as well. It needs this to take up my pocket real estate. Otherwise I will just game at home with my PS3. If they make this into a phone, I will pay $199 USD with a 2 year contract.
$400 is my budget, but hell if the damn thing can run MGS 4. I'll pay whatever.
I think the sweet spot would be £250, then it would seriously be competing with the 3DS for value. Unfortunately, knowing Sony more recently, they'll probably sell it for over £300...about £320-330 I think. Then they'll hold onto that price as long as they possibly can before dropping it to the sub-£300 mark. I just hope they have learned from the PS3, that it will only start selling properly if the price is right, and not way too much, as was with the PS3. I think it would be a much clever marketing strategy to sell it at £250 or so and lose money on it to begin with, and then recoup it later when millions have been sold and they have an extensive audience.
300-375$ if there good games not quick game for the launch
$350, if its anymore id prolly wait till it got a price drop which i wouldnt mind because then it would have a lot more games out by then.
The most I'll pay is $350 and that's with a bundle. Maybe if it does come out at the $350 range by it's self then I might as well get it, but after seeing what it can do there's no reason for me to get the 3DS now. I was going to get the 3DS on launch but now I'm going to save it for the PSP2.
I'm willing to go up to 400$! but I hope it's around 300$ - 350$
$300 is the perfect price.... and then all they need is a good selection of release games and great game selection in the coming months. And they will sell like free hotcakes.
Not more than $300,since I'm also gonna buy the 3DS around the same time frame of PSP2's launch.
Im predicting 299€ since its rumored that sony will take a loss with each console sold.
My money is on they will release it at this price point.
$200! that's all!! I guess no day1 4 me!! that's gpu upgrade money sorry..
$599 US Dollars! I mean we can always just go get second jobs right? Seriously though probably not more then $199.
if it hits 299 US, that will sell like hotcakes
$300 maybe $350 i am a sucker for SONY products!!!! LOL
smh I love new tech nd I will pay anything nd I mean anything to get it even if it means selling my car if I have to lol gotta love sony :)
It really should be $250 just to make sure it stands a chance against the DS. Make up the loss of revenue in software sales.
£250 with a game though.
$300 is reasonable
Never been a handheld guy - but the videos of the games on this system look AMAZING. 300 would be the sweet spot to hit the affordable tag. However, I believe it will sell well up to 400 and I expect this to be 350 on release.
$199 is my sweet spot to buying a handheld gaming device. Also whenever I buy games for platforms like that I put them in the $10-$20 price range. My iPhone serves me well at mentioning just what I said above. I won't be buying either the 3DS/PSP2 until they reach the $199 price point which probably won't happen until next year probably later in the year like X-Mas time or something.
this answers it all! http://www.youtube.com/watc... I wonder what hill happen to current psps? I still use my slim.
