PSP: does cheaper = more relevant?

It’s deadline day, so you’re only getting a quick one.

The PSP is getting – or has already got – a price reduction in the US. While we don’t know if that’s going to spread to the UK and Europe (it would be stupid if it didn’t, naturally) it’s still a reasonably interesting point.

Is it too late for you now? Does a price drop for the PSP even matter at this point? It’s not as expensive as it was when it first came out, but it’s always felt a bit too pricey for me to really recommend it that much to others. Unless I told them to buy one second hand.

I’m one of the biggest PSP fanboys I know and even I’m not sure what the point is of the console continuing half the time. A price drop is always welcome – I love cheap things, as should you – but I genuinely don’t know if it matters anymore.

What do you think? Would a price drop encourage you to actually buy a PSP? Do you even care anymore? Is it too late now? Why am I such a raving PSP apologist? Answers on a postcard (and by postcard I mean the comments section below).
