When the PlayStation 3 released the price of Sony’s console was highly criticized for being heavily over-priced. The same question was imminently posed towards Sony’s next console, Next Generation Portable – the PSP2 in all but name.
I would wait until it's at $300 maybe it's worth more but $300 is around my budget, I really want one though.
Would I Pay Over $300 For NGP? Yes.
I will too. I May pay $400 but that will depend on the final hardware and spec.
Only if it will toss my salad...hee, hee...umm..shee, shee :D
as much as i love the NGP i wouldn't pay over $300 for it even though it's worth much more than that. i think $300 is the perfect price point for it. i wish it wasn't as bulky and was more "portable". maybe i'll wait for the redesign.
I would pay $300, but any more would pushing it.
I would pay $300. I would not pay more. I'm not much of a travelling gamer anyway.
I'd say $350 is my limit. Considering I'm a person who dropped $570 on a graphics card, that doesn't mean I'll fork over $400 for a handheld.
I really hope it's below thta though but if the games are good and the 3G is good, I'll pick it up even if it's $400! I spent more on my launch PS3 anyway
TBH, I'd drop up to 6 bills for this.
Il go only as much as 350
Yes, BUT I am hoping for $249.
No More Than 200 Pounds
How do you manage to play on all those platforms if you wont spend more than £200?
I Meant To Say The Non 3G Version
even the 3DS is GBP250! I guess, you won't be buying both early then
I would pay more, its really awesome
if it is 3g model it is justified
3G + internal storage. So far it looks like there is no internal storage in this out of the box...sux!
Nope. $250 is pushing it for me with the 3DS $300+ is a no go at launch and I will wait for a price drop or Holiday sales.
and a NGP slim version... Me too, no day-1 purchase
$300 is he ideal price for the NGP, anything higher than that Sony will have a hard time selling it.
I'll buy it for $300
No more than $250. Given how expensive PSP and NDS games were....
Would I pay for it? Yes. But at the moment they haven't showed me much about it for me to want one.
yes up to 350
if i was rich i would. ngp looks like a crazy powerful handheld with some really cool features yet the problem is that its just a handheld. i spend hours and hours playing ds and psp but its never the bulk of my core gaming. im gonna have to wait till it price drops. wish i could pick it up sooner but i just cant.
If I was rich I would by five. I'd also have multiple playstations a huge house every game Ive ever wanted, every classic game I have tried to find but have failed, a huge 3d TV, and a ton of other stuff. But since that isnt the case Ill see what games come out. When a KH gets officialy announced on it I willl buy it just like i did the last gen of portables.
hahaha yah im sure i would have more than just the ngp if i was rich. but yah ill probably wait till the library builds up and then get it at a cheaper price.
Hell no. They seem to be marketing it as a handheld console, I'm sorry but I have a 60 inch screen and a Ps3, Xbox 360 and Wii for all that. Honestly I couldn't think of a time when I'd get to use it, aside from at home, I drive to work and home, drive myself everywhere. So I'll pass.
Have to actually agree here. I REALLY don't want a PS3 in my pocket, at least not yet, maybe by the time the next gen hits.
I dont understand u people. I laugh when I hear people say I dont want a PS3 in my pocket. Then what the hell do you want in your pocket? If your not interested in handheld then say that instead. As for handheld customer they want the best. If its a PS3 in your pocket then tha will be awesome.
I have a PS3 already so I dont exactly need one in my pocket now do I? I think the NGP is great (Except that back tracker, just dont like it) and people will definitely be enjoying it. but for ME I just dont want a PS3 in my pocket till next gen systems hit.
@joni-ice well of course people would want it if it was cheaper. i mean its kind of a tough sell for some people like myself, seeing as how i paid 300 for my ps3 and now the ngp will probably be the same price. it almost feels like i would be rebuying a ps3 so it does turn me away a little bit.
$300 would be perfect but i'd be willing to over it.
YES!!! Up to $350!!
If it has a proper video out for games and movies than upto 350 seems fair...basically a portable console to take on vacations/cottage/hotels etc. (Assuming I can use DS3 to control it as that is a go feature already)
$350 would be the highest I go.
I will buy it. But if its over $300 it will be a hard sell for Sony to the masses and not just game enthusiasts.
No, I would only pay up too $299.00.
If the ngp is a "digital download only" hand-held I am definitely not going to get the ngp. If on the other hand the ngp supports the physical media fomat for their games I think that I will wait until it is about $200 before getting it.
They've already said that games will be available on memory cards (similar to DS games)
i'll wait until they get the kinks out before i considered PSP2 period.
I'd actually wait to see what the line up of games that are released before I buy it. If it has a decent line up of games I might buy it
I won't pay anything until it has a decent game library honestly.
Yes I would. Already got 1K for this sucker. Waiting for this b to come out.
NO IM SORRY I don't really care how cool its or not 300 and up is too high for a hand held, all fanboyism aside I much rather buy a $200 PS3 than a $300 handheld version.
350 is all i would pay and nothing more
So some of you guys would pay 300 bucks for a Sony handheld, but won't buy a 360/Wii so we can stop all this fanboyism? You guys must own that new Sony Bible that came out and follow the Sony Ten Commandments to a T.
already own the 360 only thing i'm missing is wii
I'll pay whatever they ask for. But likely they will be reasonable and under 500
Get an ipod 4 instead.
No for me. I'm getting a 3DS for my daughter. So the PS3 and 360 could be mine
I WOULD PAY $450
they said its between 250-280 for the non 3g model soooo yeah no worries there
I spent over £600 day on on the PS3 launch and never regretted it, so yeah I would.
$249.99 plus taxes seems like fair price launch price but $299.99 plus taxes your out of your mind sony how the hell do you expect me to come up with that when the PS3 is already burning holes in my pockets cut me some slack!
