Does The PS3 Price Cut Make The PSP Go Look Like A Poor Value?

The announcement of the PlayStation 3 Slim coming in at $299 has delighted gamers around the world. Those holding off on purchasing a PS3 have 100 reasons to do so. At $299, there's no questioning the PS3's value -- it's a great gaming system and a wonderful Blu-ray player. Although $299 is still a lot of money, it's simply a much more palatable price point for many people. Sony, its investors, and gamers have a lot to be happy about.

Minutes after Sony's GamesCom 2009 press conference, I started thinking about the $249 PSP Go. While I was planning to get one so that I don't go on a killing spree after listening to that annoying UMD drive on my PSP-2000, it seems like such a poor value compared to the PS3. Certainly a lot of it is an apples-and-oranges comparison, but ultimately it comes down to money. If you're a gamer that has a PS3 and a PSP, which upgrade do you choose? The PS3 Slim or the PSP Go? I haven't thought it through yet, but it just seems like you're getting way more for your money with the Slim.

What do you guys and gals think? Has Sony (indirectly) made the PSP Go look like a chump by cutting the price of the PS3?
