Price down to $185 USD from $215 USD
Sony has reduced the price of its PlayStation Portable devices in Japan. The basic PSP now sells for 16,800¥ (~$185 USD), which is approximately $30 below its previous price of 19,800¥ (~$215 USD). The discount applies to the full range of colors which now includes black, silver, white, blue, red, yellow and green.
Sony on Thursday also introduced several accessories for its portable consoles, ahead of the PSP Go launch. A Bluetooth headset receiver works as a wireless adapter for any 3.5mm headphones. The receiver is compatible with a variety of devices, including the iPhone or iPod touch.
The PSP price cuts appear to be limited to the local Japanese market. It remains unknown if Sony plans to reduce prices internationally. [via BB Watch]
