PSP Price Drop Predicted

The analysts are at it again with predictions about what will happen within the game industry. The latest word out on “The Street” is that Sony,s PSP is headed for yet another price reduction. The handheld unit first hit the store shelves at a hefty $250 price tag and has since been discounted to $199.
