Sony has set an "end of the year" release window for its upcoming Next Generation Portable, but it looks like the company isn't waiting that long to drop the price on its current PlayStation handheld. Starting Sunday, February 27, the PSP-3000 system will be available for a new low price of $130 -- a considerable $40 off from the previous $170 MSRP -- while "Entertainment Packs" with bundled games will now start at $160.

I wonder how much the no games port- I mean next generation portable will cost. A rumor was that it would be $250 but sony issued a statement saying it was false.

The PSP is a great device......

But is it even relevant anymore? Does anybody care? Seems like netbooks, tablets, and smartphones are sort of replacing this market. I suppose the exception will be Nintendo's 3DS when it's released simply because of the 3D cool-factor.

The price drop was a wise move but I'm not sure if they're going to move a ton of units.
