GI: When I brought up the initial shock at the PlayStation 3 launch price, he [Shuhei Yoshida] laughed and assured me, "It's not going to be $599."
if sony puts the price berween 249 and 299.99 the consumer sweet spot for hand held devices i will buy it in a heartbeat. If it gets 399.99 or above thats a danger zone for consumer to have an hand held gaming device.
for me is 250-300 is a buy if its more then ill wait till it goes down or buy it use
If it's $349 or below, I'm buying one, but I'd prefer $299 or below.
lol. 599. We're so past that. Try 598. Seriously though I think it will be 299.
Right on, mate. $249 - $299.99 is the sweet spot right there. And for that price, You are getting the most cutting edge handheld to date. Pretty much a PlayStation 3 in the palm of your hands, all Thanks to Sony :)
well we know its not 599 at least lol. i think a $400 model is too high so a $300 wifi and $350 3g model would be possible. i dont think its going to cost $250 that seems a little unrealistic.
^ yes and these are the MAX retail prices...
Here it is the OFFICIAL video of the PSP2 pricing: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
The funny thing about it all is, it was worth it! I paid that at the beginning of the PS3 life cycle and I've been very happy with it. It's just the cheap skates who can't see value in the long run.
ya that's what I was saying...get a job and stop complaining cuz 599 is like a half week pay geez
you have way too many bubbles edit:unfortunately doing so wont be enough to get rid of your pointless rants and crap you spew
Feel free to take them.
wow that jokes
Gotta admit- made me laugh a little.
Not 599!? Awesome 400 is probably the cut off for me, but after seeing how it is and depending on the games I'd be willing to have a little bit of leeway. Also...
You know what... Make it $299/£189 & you've got yourself a deal, Sony :)
We'll be lucky if the price is closer to the £200 mark than £300.
£189 sounds too good, I expect it to be more like £250.
Not really too promising, when they start talking about "value" you need to really read between the lines. It might be low but i dont know...
Not 599? Helps my PS4 savings money.
My guess is $349 for the Wifi one and $400 for the one with 3G. When you consider the PSPGO was $250 and that had nothing this thing has..ya. Also I'm wondering what the games are going to cost. I wouldn't be surprised if there $50-$60 like standard Xbox 360 and PS3 games. Too rich for my blood.
not 599 because its going to be 699 next gen price for the ultimate next gen handheld :P
probably between 300-350
Is Next Generation Portable Gaming, obviously is not gonna be $200 or $250 (I would be surprised). Just looking at the Hardware, at least $300, 350.
Don't be shocked if the PSP2 cost $400 for it's top end model. Sony is probably losing money selling at this price. The iphone4 and other smartphones alike cost $599 and it's not as powerful.
That's what I was thinking 400~450 seems like the price range that they would well not necessarily need but would like to go for. We could be shocked though. So far I'd guess from 379~499 perhaps?
Yeah, but the IPhone looks hot. Try slipping the PSP2 into your pocket...just fits. Great, now plug in your head phones and try slip it into your pocket again. Yeah, I know you an use bluetooth headphones with the PSP2 but not many people use them yet.
In NZ at the estimated prices it may sit around the $600-$700 mark. However, add on a 3G plan and you could easily add another $30-$40 month - we get shafted in NZ over 3G plans. However, big question remains as to who will even provide 3G coverage for the PSP2. Took Apple ages to get a provider. Hope they make it so you can interchange the sim cards so you can pick your own provider.
I will pay £300 for it MAX. If higher i will wait till it drops slightly. BTW abit of topic, nintendos reaction when Sony announced NGP: http://www.youtube.com/watc... LOL
LOL I doubt Nintendo is worried... The 3DS is going to sell like crazy... I predict this will be between $300-400... we will know at E3...
£250-£350 in the UK. £299.99 being the sweet spot. Sony will sell this at a loss no doubt...but how much of a loss? This piece of kit is a powerhouse, make no mistake. So it begs the question as to how much Sony can sell it for, while staying competitive with 3DS AND iPhone,iPad etc etc.
399 US DOLLARS is probably my limit and that is including 3G.
I predict $349 and $399(3G version). Will be surprising if it's lower than that.
Hmm.., I wonder. That device has more features than my phone (HTC HD 2) and when that came out, I paid £499 offline for it.....hell, with 3g you may be able to use it as a phone lol Put Skype on it and you have! So, since the media loves comparing the games of the psp franchise to games of t he IPhone, my question is: How much was the IPhone 4 when bought offline when it came out?
it wont be that high at call considering that Sony will work something out for the 3g model. the thing is If it's the Wifi model it'll prolly come right in at $250-$299 with the 3g model coming in at $350 and subsidized by carriers. The Phones which are less powerfull and stand alone cost anywhere between $400-$700 unsubsidized by phone carriers and that without an upgrade so i'm pretty sure what will happen at launch is that every carrier in the US will Sell this on a data plan 3g enabled for $350 and the wifi model will be at local video game vendors for prolly 100 bucks less or 50 bucks less.. for me. the thought of playing KZ multiplayer over 3g mobile broad band is more enticing than say Wifi. for those that are gonna whine the wifi modle will be yuour best bid.
watch lets say it is 499 .. it will get slammed for the price .. yet other handheld devices that were that price ( such as iphone ) it's fine
NGP intial launch pricing. Please vote. A. $599 B. $499 C. $449 D. $399 E. $349 Because it is a new technology with all the bells and whistle. And it is portable gadget. My guess will be $499. Then after 1 year to 1 year and half it will go down to $399. In 2 to 3 yrs it will be either $349 or $299.
I am predicting 299€ if they want to compete with the 3DS
For just five hundred and ninety nine us dollars and get a free enemy crab, attack its weak spot for massive damage
Hehe indeed it wont be 600 bucks, at that rate no one would purchase a handheld console at this price, with 600 i can get a PS3 Slim 250GB and a couple of games and an accessory or two.
