PSP Price Cut: Down To $129.99

Sony's Peter Dille Concerned About Rampant PlayStation Portable Piracy (PSPP?)

Sony announced this morning that the company is cutting the price of the PlayStation Portable. Beginning on February 27, the PSP will cost $129.99. That's down 40 bucks from the current price, a significant cut, I think you will agree.

"The PSP system set the standard for complete portable entertainment and continues to be the premiere destination for gamers on-the-go,” said SCEA’s Tim Bende in a statement. “Nearly six years after its initial launch, demand for the PSP remains strong. This new price point enables us to broaden the PSP platform to a larger group of consumers who are looking for best-in-class handheld entertainment.”

That's not all though: Thirteen new games will be added to the PSP's “Greatest Hits” designation ($19.99 each) and six will be added to the “favorites” collection ($9.99). Here's the full list:

New PSP “Greatest Hits” Titles ($19.99)

    * Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines (Ubisoft)
    * DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY (Square Enix, Inc.)
    * LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
    * METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER (Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.)
    * Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters
    * Resistance: Retribution
    * Toy Story 3: The Video Game (Disney Interactive)

New PSP “Favorites” Titles ($9.99)

    * CRISIS CORE-FINAL FANTASY VII (Square Enix, Inc. )
    * Daxter
    * Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (Capcom)
    * Killzone: Liberation
    * SOCOM U.S. Navy SEALs: Fire Team Bravo
    * Tomb Raider Anniversary (Square Enix, Inc.)

This is in advance of the PlayStation NGP, of course, so it looks like Sony is clearing the shelves in preparation of the launch of the "Next Generation Portable," expected to be released during the upcoming holiday season.
