Sources are confirming to us that Sony will officially announce that they will be slashing the price of the PSPgo in North America by $50. This will bring the price of the unit down to $199.
The move is an attempt to get inventory sold, as the device has taken massive flack since release for its high price tag in conjunction with being a download-only unit. The price cut of $50 is said to be only for the North American market and will come Friday, October 15th. It is unknown if Sony will move to slash the price in other markets, as well.
