PSP Drops To $99 On Amazon

Whenever a new piece of hardware comes out, the suddenly "old" system rapidly becomes a lot more attractive to many consumers.

With a huge library and a much cheaper price in comparison to the fancy new technology, systems like the PS2 have flourished when the PS3 hit store shelves. So maybe with the Vita out, more of you are intrigued by the PSP.

And if so, you should definitely check out Amazon.com, where they're selling the PSP-3000 Core Pack System (Piano Black) for only $99.99. As spotted by GamerDeals, this package that is normally $129.99 has been discounted and oh yes, it'll ship free with Super Saver Shipping. Over the years, the PSP has garnered some top-notch software and if you've always wanted to have one, now's the time to strike. As I said before, big library, cheap price.

It's doubly essential if you're an old-school RPG fan. A lot of the game mechanics we used to find in that genre (turn-based included) can be located on the PSP in great abundance, if you know where to look...

Crisis Core is the core title of the console without a doubt. I tried Peace Walker on the PSP and couldn't no get into it. Luckily the PS3 got it with the HD collection :)

I am personally still content with my PSP, last April we got the S-E package of Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection, Dissidia ... 2 & The 3rd Birthday, I got all 3 special editions for a very reasonable price. I still play Dissidia...2 very often! It is the perfect portable console game. Until the Vita's titles grow I wont be getting one... not till around 2014 at this rate.

I'll happily wait for a good Vita Deal. I really want to play PSASBR Portable, Gravity Rush and That Uncharted Card Game that comes out as an add-on to Golden Abyss. :)

Didn't take advantage of the Black Friday deals? Those are all great games you list. I find PSASBR more enjoyable on the Vita.

I did like my psp, but I only played a couple of games on it. Crisis Core, some minis, and Peacwalker and thats about it.

A smart phone doesn't have the games (and not may of the same quality) as a psp.

I love my PSP. Mostly because it's a PSX portable but there's nothing wrong with that.
After Xenogears I'll move onto Suikoden II (read that Konami?), Chrono Cross, and probably an older Final Fantasy. I really want to play FFIV.

As for the $99 thing. Good deal. But I'll just hold out for the eventual Vita purchase and make good from there.. hmmmm I have a birthday in Feb. Maybe SOny will drop it's price and maybe my wife will think it's a good time to get a Vita ;)

If that plan fails I can settle for GoW Ascension pre-order, or something.

This is a good deal just because the PSP already has thousands of priced games for it, plus numerous movies & music videos that can be found, and at super low prices.
