Cool NGP elements set aside to remain on price target

Some cool elements of the NGP have had to be set aside in order to keep the device on a pre-determined price target, Shuhei Yoshida, president, SCE worldwide studios, has told Edge magazine.

Sounds like they bit off more then they can chew, going on about all those great features and stuff in order to spoil the 3DS spotlight and it probably would of cost $350-$400...

We'll probably just see a really basic NGP to get as close as they can to 3DS price, then a fully loaded one but a much higher price.

Did you read what he said? It was during development they set the price goal and had to cut features then to keep cost down. What they unveiled was what they finalized on, they are not cutting anything from what was revealed.

I have a strong feeling that originally, the PSP2 was gonna have a 3D screen, but it got set aside for more important features, and for price reasons.

Hmm so NGP will be priced aggressively.

I'd like to see it at $250-350.

I think they'll go somewhere between $279-$329. They Wouldn't want to go to far over the PS3 price of 299.
