PSP Go Now $199 In U.S.

The PSP Go’s much-maligned introductory price is history. No longer will you have to cough up $249 for the UMD-less version of Sony’s handheld. Starting today $199 will get you a Go. This price drop coincides with similar announcements for other regions, with the PSP Go in Japan now retailing for ¥16,800 ($208), down from its original price of ¥26,800 ($332). November 1st the U.K. will follow suit with a price drop to £159.

So, is the Go’s more portable form factor and “game jukebox” feel worth losing the UMD slot and access to some PSP games, like the latest Kingdom Hearts? This is still a question those interested in the Go have to answer, but with this price drop Sony is giving fans a reason to give the Go a second look.
