Tired of getting its butt kicked by Ninty in the handheld and home console race, Sony's finally done the inevitable and cut the price of the PSP.Following a similar cut in the US, UK PSP prices will be tumbling on 4th May from £150 to £130 – a £20 fall for all you maths fans out there. At the same time, five PSP games will be getting the golden oldie Platinum treatment, including Stuff favourite Loco Roco, tactical shooter Killzone Liberation and the stunningly good lookin' Tekken: Dark Resurrection. And the good news is your pocket money will go further there too, because the entire Platinum line-up will now cost just under £15 a piece. Bargain!So why all this sudden benevolence from Sony HQ? The bottom of its press release holds a clue. ‘The exciting possibility of connecting remotely to PlayStation 3 makes PSP more relevant than ever’ it screams. Hmm, a PSP price cut at the same time as PS3 gets new firmware for PSP connectivity. We think Sony is keen to get its two units buddied up. The quest for gaming domination continues.
