PSP Enjoys Sales Spike Thanks To Black Friday Deals
As we all lie in wait for the PSP2 announcement, the PSP-3000 remains a darn good investment for those who haven't yet given portable gaming a try this generation.
Sony recently outlined the many Black Friday deals for the PS3 and PSP and after word got around, it seems the PSP is enjoying quite the popularity surge. As noted by PlayStation LifeStyle, the Amazon.com PSP deal - LittleBigPlanet, "The Karate Kid" movie, 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, and a $15 gift card - for $129.99 has made everyone go bonkers. Sales rocketed 62,200%; the PSP was ranked 1,246 before the deal went public and now, it's all the way up to the #2 slot. That $129 PSP bundle (minus the gift card) will also be available at GameStop, the Best Buy bundle will probably go fast, and Amazon is currently sold out of the package in question. The PS3 might also see a boost in sales, thanks to the various bundle deals along with the recent release of the long-awaited Gran Turismo 5. Yes indeed, the holidays are starting with a bang. Black Friday is good for saving cash...sometimes.
So, who out there is taking advantage of these sales? Any good gamer needs both the PS3 and PSP, right?
