    PSP Price - Your Best Guess

    My other PSP price poll topic disappeared so I have decided to create a new one. Also, my last topic didn't say POLL and I thought that all polls automatically said POLL. This may have something to do with the problem.

    Please give your best guess as to how much the PSP will cost.

    Things to consider:
    1) When refering to the $400 N-Gage, Sony said that the PSP price would be more comparable to the GBA(SP).
    2) Many people have estimated the price of the PSP to be very high (some as high as $500 - $600).
    3) Sony said that they would initially be losing money on the PSP.

    Personally I can't see the price being any less than $150 or any more than $300; however, in my last poll people complained that I didn't give enough choices so this time I will make sure that I do. I also added other so that people won't complain that I didn't put some weird amount like $263.

    My best guess is $250.

    The N-Gage was $400 in America? It was only $499 in Australia. Which is $356 American.

    I'm guessing 250, which would probably be $250.

    On the other hand, that price is based on a leaked figure and Phil Harrison's statement ("Closer to 200 than 300") from back when they were going to sell the hardware at profit. Maybe the hardware is just as expensive as they thought, but they'll launch it at a lower price. Or, the hardware was more expensive than they thought to make, and it'll stay at 250, but it becomes a loss.

    We'll see. I'd put my lowest guess at 150 but that's extremely unlikely.

    I think $250 because that sounds like the right price most people would want to pay for it at launch without making a big loss on each psp sold it might come with a small memory stick for game saves at that price.
    I've finaly got a PSTwo! About bloody time too.

    my collection

    i'd also say 249,99/$
    that's a price everybody would pay to get such cool multimedia PS2 that fits in your pocket. it's not too low (if they would make the price lower than this at launch the quality of it could suffer) and not too high that ppl prefer to get a DS because it's so much cheaper.

    but for the 250$ i want to get: a battery recharger, the smallest memory stick that i don't have to buy one to save my games and maybe even a USB cable (how much does a USB calbe cost about ?) so i can just get it out of the package at home and instantly put some music or so on it. 8)

    I'm surprised that more people haven't guessed $300.

    I don't think that there's a very good chance that it will be as low as $200 and I see almost no possibility of it being $150.

    200-250 USD. I voted for $250 though since it seems more likely.

    from page 12 in august 2004 issue of PSM (a US mag)

    Quote[/code]:
    Cost is still undetermined but our sources at several game makers put it at $199 max [:wink: (riiiiite)]

    but i think that will be the LOWEST

    but since sony said they would be losing money i think that will be the price on release

    I have come back from the dead to post once more.

    I said $250. Although they would lose money even at $400 (according to sony personal from E3) i don't think that they'd be dumb enough to price it at $350 and not make up any of teh money they are losing.

    I'll pay 250 for one and I'm sure many others will

    But 199 is where I think it will hit. 6 months later 179. Following Christmas 149 and the following Summer 139 and 99 by the next Christmas.

    Either way, I'll write a cheque now, you can just put the RRP on it when it comes out
