One of the main points of speculation since the announcement of the NGP has been it’s price point. The new handheld system is touting PS3 like graphics on a touch screen, two thumb sticks, multiple motion tracking sensors, as well as a touch pad on the back. This coupled with a high end camera, cross platform playing capabilities, and Wi-fi and 3G connectivity, all comes together for what’s presumably some expensive technology. The recently leaked screens from Gamestop supports what several analysts predicted: a $300 price point. Well, $299.99 to be exact, if you worry about pennies.
$299 seems really nice for most people...let's hope it's true.
