This has kicked off even more since gamespot started taking preorders yesterday at a $999.99 price point. This concerned many people as Gamespot are usually pretty good at their prices since they were absolutely spot on with the Kinect pricing. Since then however, this price has been removed from Gamespot’s website.
Sony has came back and informed that the NGP will not be $1000, it will not even be $599. But further than this they are still sticking to their “affordable” statement.
So there we have it, the BGP is not going to be as ridiculously prices as expected but still has a long way to go meet the $250 price mark of the 3DS. Maybe they could push it to this mark, who knows.
Let me know what you think.
