Retailer Fry's may be the first chain to start offering the PSPgo at more reasonable prices, dropping $50 from the new portable's price for a limited time. Don't have a Fry's nearby? Call in a favor from a friend!
Because, unfortunately, it appears that the deal is in-store only. And if you've ever been to a Fry's, you know what a crazy place the discount electronics retailer can be. The $199 asking price, while an uncommon markdown for a new piece of video game hardware, is not out of the norm for Fry's. It's also offering Uncharted 2: Among Thieves for ten bucks off the price you'd pay elsewhere and giving away multiple free games with every Wii or Xbox 360 sold.
So, maybe consider it a bellwether of Fry's current PSPgo stock if it makes you feel better or just focus on the less cynical side of the story and get yourself a cheaper PSPgo.
Thanks to Brian for the tip!
