Gamestop Now Taking Sony NGP Pre-Orders for $299 with $50 Deposit

RipTen: "A source at Gamestop has confirmed that they are now taking pre-orders for the Sony NGP (PSP 2) with a $50 deposit. However, what is more interesting is the price."

The story is too old to be commented.

gamesR4fun2396d ago

SpitFireAce852396d ago

Its like saying i wish Bobby Kotick cared
about gamers...not going to happen..

HolyOrangeCows2396d ago!

I'd go for it at $300.

HappyGaming2395d ago

5 inch OLED
2 cameras
2 touch pads
six axis
quad core CPU?

If it was a phone or a tablet it would cost at list $500 with those specs.

They will probably sell at a loss again and make their money back from software sales.

I'm pretty sure EB Games is the Gamespot branch in Australia.

Kewl_Kat2396d ago

it's also called eb games here in canada. but when you look it up online, it would direct you to gamestop

socomnick2396d ago

300 is quite reasonable I'd pick one up for 300 once it was jailbroken.

300 - wifi version
350 - 3g version

that seems about right.

then again it could be way more expensive.

silvacrest2396d ago

$50 more just for 3G??

heres to hoping your wrong

norman292396d ago

socomnick your an absolute dick my friend

Rainstorm812396d ago

At $300 its a first day buy, if that is the true price its gonna sell out, better get your pre-orders in

plb2396d ago

Likely wont come out till early next year in US. First place will be Japan holiday 2011. still some time.

WhiteNoise2396d ago

we do, it's called EB games.

EB games is gamestop, it is owned and run by them, it's just a sub company, they also have EB games in America too though.

Anyone with half a brain knows you don't shop there anyway because they charge way too much for games and generally suck scrotum.

Go to JB hifi or my own fav.

It's a small site but their games are waaaaaaaay cheaper than everywhere else.

Dead SPace 2 on PC at EB= $88

Dead Space 2 from incl free shipping= $55...

Pedobear Rocks2396d ago

You say they charge too much for games but suck scrotum...sounds like good customer service too me.

Drjft2396d ago

I get all my games free through what I do for work anyway so yeah, more wish we had GameSpot because of their prices.

EB Games charged $110 for Halo: Reach (Standard Edition) whilst Gamestop was charging $50 USD when the AUS/USD was at 100% parity...


Normally, what are the prices of games in Australia?

Hairy Chewie2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

AU$110 for console games generally. I did manage to pick up GT5 for $98 at EB day 1 though. Thought that was an improvement.

WhiteNoise2396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

@Hairy Chewie

You should shop at if you insist on buying them at top dollar.

Game the retail store is usually no cheaper than EB games ( eb games online store has the same prices as their retail store ) but game's online store has all their games for $10 cheaper than their retail stores.

Only suckers pay extra to deal with the morons at the counter.

if you reeeeeally want to get dangerous, shop with the little guys and try

GT5 is $67

i challenge you to find a cheaper price

Here is little big planet 2 for $70, that's $30 cheaper than just about everywhere else.

They are hit or miss though with pricing, a lot of the time it's cheap but sometimes it's the same as other places BUT the prices drop at really fast.

You can check back every week and it will literally have dropped $5 a week every week or thereabouts.

NnT32912396d ago (Edited 2396d ago )

Normally $89-99 for new release 360/ps3 games, a bit cheaper for PC games.

if this thing is 299 watch out any console handheld or not

now i can not wait for E3 or when is GDC sony needs to show uncharted and confirm is for launch i was listening to invisibles walls on GT and everyone of them said uncharted will be a killer app for psp2

also make sure 3rd party is 100$% behind this and keep the piracy away from this

arika2396d ago

its also up for preorder at SEARS. check it out.

Nathaniel_Drake2396d ago

That's only a place holder price right?

kwicksandz2396d ago

Soooo... they won't be coming in purple then? D:

Invadersims2396d ago

I might preorder this actually.

Kreyg2396d ago

Wow, only $299? That seems a lot more reasonable than the $999.99 that the interwebs blew out of proportion the other day. I think I might go make a deposit tomorrow and put down $20 every 2 weeks until I'm paid off

CrzyFooL2396d ago

They list everything at $999 til it has an actual price people are dumb
