8GB PSP Memory Stick priced at $300

not cheapAs expected, Sony will soon roll out its 8GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, priced at $300. That's steep, but given previous trends, the price should plummet quickly. Last summer, the 4GB Memory Stick debuted at $250, but could be found for as low as $65 (SanDisk model) during a recent (but expired) Google Checkout promotion on Buy.com.

PSP firmware v2.81 or higher is needed to use the 8GB Memory Stick with Sony's portable gaming device.
