C'mon, you did think that Sony whippersnapper that confirmed the US PSP price cut was holding back about Europe, didn't you? As these things tend to fall, Europe is getting similar treatment as the US (albeit in a slightly later fashion), as the price of the PlayStation Portable will soon be descending to £130 / €170 (between $231 and $260) across the lake. Additionally, several Platinum titles will be taking a nosedive right along with it, as Ridge Racer 2, Tekken, Killzone, LocoRoco, and Moto GP all sink to £14.99 ($30). Hold your horses before skipping out of work and ripping our your credit card, though, as the price drops aren't slated to take effect until May 4th -- but we'd still recommend keeping a close eye out, as we know all too well how those street dates can fall through hold up.
