NGP To Be Priced At $250, But Also $350?

Illustration for article titled NGP To Be Priced At $250, But Also $350?

Thanks to Sony Europe, we already know that there'll be two models of the NGP handheld. But a survey taken by some of our readers suggests the price difference between those models might be vast.

A survey conducted yesterday by research firm Toluna, and sponsored by publishers Ubisoft (it was labelled "Ubisoft- NGP concept- US Adults"), says that "the retail price of the Sony NGP is expected to be around $350", and asks the respondent "How likely would you be to purchase the Sony NGP now that you know this retail price?"

That's for the premium model, the one with 3G. The next question, however, says that the version of the NGP shipping without 3G connectivity will be priced considerably lower: at $250.

Of course, being a survey conducted by a third-party publisher and not Sony itself, these prices could well be pure conjecture. The fact it's such a major publisher, though, and that it's so confidently-worded, means those prices are at least worth bearing in mind.

We've contacted Sony for comment, and will update if we hear back.

What are the chances of Sony pulling a Kindle and giving free 3G connection to purchasers? It seems strange that they would charge more of a phone that will carry a monthly data plan... Should be the other way around becuase they will make that $100 back in the first 4 months of a 12 month contract for 3G.
