PSP Price Cut, VoIP Support

It couldn’t have come sooner. The PlayStation Portable, struggling to compete with the Nintendo DS, will finally see its first price cut since launch. On March 22, gamers can pick up a PlayStation Portable at a reduced price of $199. This is $50 cheaper than the so-called “Value Pack”, except it lacks a 32MB Memory Stick Duo, headphones and other extras.

That’s not all of the PSP news we have for you though. Sony claims that the system has brought in “more than $1.6 billion as of calendar year 2005, more than both Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS combined.” It’s important to mention, however, that Game Freaks 365 cannot independently verify this. Finally, we got word that the PSP will support VoIP beginning in October for use as a phone.
