Digital software prices slashed ahead of key weekend at UK retail
A routine Bank Holiday sale or an effort to encourage struggling hardware sales call it what you want, but PSPgo owners old and new will be greeted with some significant discounts the next time they log into the PSN Store.
Several high-profile titles have seen their prices slashed on the service, including the likes of God of War (down from £14.99 to £7.99), GTA Chinatown Wars (£29.99 to £14.99), FIFA 10 (£29.99 to £15.99), Tekken 6 (£31.99 to £15.99) Need for Speed: Shift (£29.99 to £15.99) and Gran Turismo (£17.99 to £13.99).
Permanent price reduction have also been made to a number of games, including many from EA, such as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 which drops from £29.99 to £15.99.
One of the main criticisms of the PSPgo to date has been the price of its software downloads, which compared to those available on the High Street and particularly to pre-owned prices are generally much higher.
Whether the price cuts can deliver the sort of hardware sales boost all platform holders look for over a Bank Holiday weekend in the UK is the obvious question to ask.
