    Default Sony to release PSP Giga Pack for $299!

    From Gaming-Age.com:
    http://www.gaming-age.com/news/2005/10/20-83

    Preparing the market for the upcoming holiday selling season, industry leader Sony Computer Entertainment America today announced an exciting new purchase option for the PSP system, the PSP Giga Pack, for a suggested retail price of $299 U.S./$349 CND. Available for a limited time starting in November, the PSP Giga Pack includes an unprecedented added-value package of accessories, including the PSP System, a 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, battery pack, AC adaptor, USB Cable, and an all- new PSP Stand. The company also announced that a PSP branded 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo will also be sold separately later this calendar year. In addition, the company confirmed the continuation of the current PSP Value Pack for $249 U.S/$299 CND.

    I guess thats a better deal then the 250 package. To bad you would have to downgrade the firmware to take advantage of the 1 gig mem stick.

    yeah, but $50 extra for a 1 gig memory card is a pretty good deal.

    Actually, it's a DAMN good deal, I'd go for it if I didn't have a PSP already.

    The deal is still awesome, though the prices of the gig sticks have been coming down in price as of late. You could find them for about ~$60 if you get lucky and look hard enough for them. But dont' get me wrong, still great deal.

    it sounds like a push to me, if you wanted to get people interested, you make this the new standard package, and keep the price at 249. add value to the package instead of lowering the price, like the DS did by including SM64.

    i cant see this package and price generating any new interest in the PSP

    well last I heard that SONY released ver 2.01 then mostly recently was version 2.5 so that's not downgradeable unless it is version 2.0 (as I have downgraded a version 2.0 to 1.5 and sold that PSP) . unless there's a new downgrader for all versions that's floating out somewhere on the net that I don't know of then I apologize.

    If you want an awesome PSP game you should import Taiko No Tetsujin: Portable.

    I think you're forgetting that the PSP can play movies, music, view photos/books, etc. I don't emulate on mine and I use my 1Gig MSDuo all the time.
