PSP game sale a troubling sign
Discount prices for big name PSP games on PlayStation Network are a likely sign that Sony is experiencing unexpectedly slow sales.
PlayStation Blog reports more that a dozen games have been slashed in price when downloaded via the PlayStation Store.
LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo, God of War: Chains of Olympus, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, MotorStorm: Arctic Edge and several other notable PSP titles have all been significantly discounted by 50% or more.
It's a move likely intended to pump up interest in PSP games that have been trending poorly in the last six months as iPhone, iPod touch, and DS soar in sales.
