April 3, 2007 - Our US brethren posted news earlier today confirming a price drop for the PSP in the United States. The PSP Core Pack will slide from US $199.99 to US $169.99, or at today's exchange rate, from AU $246.29 to AU $209.32, which, no matter which way you look at it, leaves Australia's AU $349.95 for the PSP Base Pack and AU $399.95 for the Value Pack looking in desperate need of some price trimming.
Unfortunately, there's no indication of a local price drop. A Sony Australia representative told us that "We have no announcements to make about PSP in the Australian market at this time." You'll be the first to know if anything changes.
