Although great detail was given on the NGP today, we’ve yet to know how much exactly the device will cost. Gamers across gaming’s web are speculating, with most assuming it’ll be priced expensively. But Sony’s just said that contrary from what we think, the PSP2 will be “affordable”.
That’s what Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Andrew House told Eurogamer today in Tokyo, adding that they’re also looking for profitability.
“I can’t put a ballpark on it in terms of figures, but what I would say is that we will shoot for an affordable price that’s appropriate for the handheld gaming space,” he said.
Adding: “Ideally we would want to have our hardware be profitable, in addition to our software. We’ve experienced both sides and we know which one we like to be on!”
No word yet on when the price will be revealed but expect it soon, as the NGP comes out this Christmas.
