The recently announced NGP is making big waves in the industry, but there are concerns about the price of the new handheld.
The NGP has an extremely high chance of blowing all of us away, but will we be able to afford the new device? In an interview with Eurogamer, Sony Boss Andrew House stated that the handheld would be “affordable.”
House didn’t state an official price but he stated that they will shoot for an affordable price that’s appropriate for the handheld gaming space. At the Playstation meeting in Tokyo, analyst believe that the price could range anywhere from $299 to $349.
If that price is true NGP will stand for Not Gonna Purchase for a lot of gamers out there. It’s definitely going to cost more than the 3DS since that is set at $249, so the price of $299 isn’t that far fetched.
