Sony has made it official that they have dropped the retail price of the PlayStation Portable (PSP) video-game player in Europe to €129.99, from the $187.29 earlier. That makes it a price cut 24%. Sony addicts in Europe, doesn’t that make you go for it without wasting even a moment.
Sony’s revelation of the price cut on their website follows a similar price snip made some time back in February. The company then had announced plans to drop the price of its gaming system to $129.99 in the United States. The same move has been adopted in its European zone too.
The slashing of the price by the company seems to have been done with the objective to increase the adoption of the player in Europe. The company competes with Microsoft Corp, maker of the immensely popular Xbox, and Nintendo Co in the gaming market. The price drop move may also be viewed as connected to the launch of the Nintendo 3DS.
The company has also made it clear that the users of the PSP will be able to access an unlimited cloud-based music service known as Music Unlimited.
The service powered by Qriocity will be active from the 14th of this month. This facility will enable the customers to listen to customized music channels or sync up with tunes stored on their PlayStation 3, PC, or other Sony devices.
