PSP Software prices Confirmed

Deering in bean-spilling gaff are this morning reporting on a spot of news from ELSPA's first annual conference, at which Sony's Chris Deering spoke out on the PSP - the firm's first handheld device.

Apparently, software will be priced in the region of 20-60 Euros, with the majority being in the 20-30 Euro range, but with bigger name titles costing nearer 60 Euros from time to time. Despite no material differences between media, the optical UMD format used will be region coded to prevent cross-over between territories. Which is rather annoying.

Finally, Deeering confirmed that a release in the second half of next year was on the cards, though a simultaneous global release was unlikely, with Japan getting the PSP a little ahead of Western territories instead.
