Sony announces a PSP Go price drop in US and Japan, international news sites said.

According to reports, the Sony PSP Go price went down to $199 from $249 in US on Monday, and from 26,800 yen to 16,800 yen ($207) in Japan, a week later.

This latest $50 drop price of Sony PSP Go in US can be noticed now on online retail stores such as Amazon, BestBuy, and Walmart, which was said to be timely for the coming holidays.

Incidentally, it has been a month after Sony launched the PlayStation Move motion control system, in which Sony reported that more than a million units sold in North and Latin America.

This move by Sony was said to be part of a regular process of lowering prices for its game machines, in which the company was reported to be suffering from low sales, the news said.

After Sony PSP Go was launched on October 2009, which is exactly a year ago, the company’s decision to lower its price is expected to do good especially that rival Nintendo announced recently that Nintendo 3DS will not yet be launched this year in both countries.

Meanwhile, Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Jack Tretton apparently told MSNBC that ‘retail demand is incredibly strong and we are working hard to keep the product in stock’.

Tretton also said ‘Sony had already doubled its production to meet the demand’.
