for me if it falls under this price range

FinalSpartan2394d ago

£180-220

is excellent price range buying day one! But i got a feeling going to more expensive then PS3.....

AGamerOfConsoles2394d ago

I don't think it will be more expensive than PS3. If I had to pull a guess? £250 - £300. This might seem steep but considering the tech here and games, it is quite a bargain imo.

But don't take my word for it. It is a guess.

Chaos692394d ago

I'll wait till it's in the $150-$200 range.

I do think it'll be more expensive than a PS3, the PSP was more expensive than a PS2 when it launched. Remember the PS3 has been about for 5 years now.
I personally think it'll be worth it as long as it gets plenty of support from the devs.

@ Venatus-Deus

LOL I meant when it originally released. The release price. That was over £400 0_o

Venatus-Deus2394d ago

Yeah I kind of guessed thats what you meant, but you did put a smile on my face.

If this thing is as powerful as the PS3 and as easy to develop for as the 360 then I'm being quite serious when I say, it may well just shit all over both the PS3 and 360 if Sony market it properly!
Personally I think it'll be pretty pricey but when you look at the tech and think of the possibilities, it'll be very much worth it.
Day one for me, I'm starting saving now!

SnakeMustDie2394d ago

299-325 is probably the sweet spot.

prongs1232394d ago

yeah, if it's sold at $299 than it'll be a knockout punch to everyone else.

Neckbear2394d ago

Yeah, if it costs the same as a home console surely many people will buy it.

Needless to say, I'm being sarcastic.

Venatus-Deus2394d ago (Edited 2394d ago )

If it has similar performace to a home console (and it seems to) then you don't need to be sarcastic.

At these prices count me in and I haven't owned a handheld since a GameGear

stevenhiggster2394d ago

Pretty much what Venatus said, I don't see any reason why if its as good as if not better than home consoles that it should be cheaper.
I personally expect that it'll be more expensive than home consoles, but I also expect that with the correct support from Sony and 3rd parties that it could be better than both home consoles and therefore worth costing more.

awiseman2394d ago

more like sour spot... Who the hell will pay $300 for a handheld? 200 or less and it will fly of shelves anything more and it will stutter and smoke along like the first psp. I have the psp 2000 btw

young juice2394d ago

same kind of people who pay $300 for ipods, phones, gps, clothes, laptops and more.

i dont care what ya got. owning a psp doesnt mean you are the heart of the consumer.

visualb2394d ago

I may sound stingy but, not buying this if its anything over 249

I KNOW its awesome and 249 is insanely cheap but if its that good, in 6 months it'll drop down to that range for sure

Highlife2394d ago

Cell phones cost more than that most don't know that because the carriers subsidize the cost.

So to have the NPG at 299 would be a steal.

my entire morning's happiness with PSP2 just wiped out with that predicted $399.

sinncross2394d ago

Well lets be honest... from what Sony showed, PSP2 is not exactly going to be low-end price wise.

I don't mind... PSP2 has the potential to be my core system of choice.

stevenhiggster2394d ago

Totally agree with you Sinn, if its as good as I'm thinking it could be then once this baby comes out I can see a few home consoles gathering dust.
If its easy to develop for and as powerful as current gen home consoles then why not!

supersonicsaga2394d ago

If it has some kind of hdmi-out and get's exclusive(not PS3 titles), you could make it your console.

golsilva2394d ago

299-350 is the right spot. sony said they will sell the psp2 at a loss initially so they could release it at 300. does anyone have any idea what the total cost is to make the psp2 per unit?

cyborg2394d ago

atleast that's what EG's saying right now

Eurogamer has been told by a source that Sony will "make a loss" on the NGP, but House insisted the hardware manufacturer is gunning for profitability.

"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!"

House was unable to confirm when Sony will reveal the NGP price. It's due out this Christmas.

NYC_Gamer2394d ago (Edited 2394d ago )

$300 would be the sweet spot for me.
