Sony has announced plans to cut the price of PlayStation Portable, which will retail for GBP 129.99 in the UK and EUR 169.99 in the rest of Europe from Friday 4th May, GamesIndustry.biz reports.
In addition, the company is dropping the RRP of Platinum titles to GBP 14.99, with five games down for release at the new price point - Ridge Racer 2, Tekken, Killzone, LocoRoco and Moto GP.
"PSP is unique and is constantly evolving. It offers the widest palette of mobile entertainment, from gaming to video, music, photos and internet," said SCE UK managing director Ray Maguire.
"But now the exciting possibility of connecting remotely to PlayStation 3 makes PSP more relevant than ever. So what better time to offer a brand new price point, and the launch of five new Platinum titles?"
The PSP currently carries an official RRP of GBP 149.99 / EUR 199.99. Earlier this month, the price of the handheld in the US was also reduced by USD 30 to hit USD 169.99.
