PSP’s just arrived at another milestone in its homeland, confirmed Famitsu today.
It’s Sony, it’s the PlayStation brand, and in North America, SCEA’s celebrating 15 years of success.
Sales of Sony’s PSPgo has been less than stellar and in an effort to boost the fledgling handheld, the company is introducing a new promotion that it hopes will encourage sales, making anyone who registered their device after April 1st eligible for the offer.
PS3 has been on a global sales rise ever since the slim version was released, Australia is no exception. According to Sony Australia, over 850,000 units have been sold in the region.
PSPgo has gone down in price, will you buy it now?
Thought PSP was losing its fervor? Not if the Japanese have something say about it.
PSPgo was the worst kept secret in all of gaming history, and now that it’s on store shelves around the globe, people are not responding by spending their hard earned cash to buy the thing. So what’s the problem? Well I don’t know. For one thing it’s just too expensive. I mean it’s light weight, cute, got cool games you know, it’s not a bad piece of hardware but a tad too pricey.
Sony knows that and the giant is planning an all-out advertising blitz. Yes folks the PSPgo might just be getting a relaunch.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, John Koller, Sony’s director of hardware marketing, said the arrival of iPad is nothing but win for his company’s handheld device, one PSP.
