    As a games machine the PSP is well not bad, there are some really good games I have to admit but the real reason to own it is because its a fine media player and has some excellent homebrew support. Well good news for those who wanted one but thought it was pricey the core pack has now dropped to $169! The entertainment pack will still retail at $250.

    No drop for anywhere other the US at this moment.

    Nice. Hopefully that means the average price of a used PSP will drop at least $20 as well, as I'll buy one from craigslist if I decide to get a PSP again.

    I may be wrong, but I think the US already had one. I wouldn't expect another anytime soon [​IMG]

    I don't think the DS will be dropping for £99.99 anytime soon, as they are still selling really well. I've always said the PSP was too expensive even though its a really good machine. If they can get the price right on the PSP and stop making the PS2 ports and make original games, it might do a lot better.

    thank god for the first price drop. I didn't think I would ever be able to afford one. now let's hope for a hardware revision.
    a price drop hopefully means sony's not losing money on these anymore and has gotten production costs down. maybe they'll lighten up on homebrew a bit too.

    as far as DS, in europe--*DAMN*, that's almost double the US value. unless I'm screwed up on my money simbols, 100gbp comes out to almost $200usd for DS. it's only $129 here... No way I'd own a DS if it cost almost $200. it just isn't enough fun.

    Europe always gets screwed on prices. I'd like to know what currency converer their using. Just look at the wii, £179 in the UK. Thats bout $358 USD. I thin the japanese are getting the wii for around £99 same price as it costs us for the DS.
