Remember the UK PSP price drop? Or Amazon and Play.com's insistance on cutting another ten pounds off the cost? Well apparently it worked. Pocket Gamer has revealed that Sony are reporting a 60% increase in sales during the first weekend of the PSP wearing its new, slimmer price tag.

As Pocket Gamer have said, this is good timing. We have some great games coming up (Crisis Core and Dissidia, to name just two), not to mention a back-catalogue of excellent titles. Such as the newly released (in Europe, at least) Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters. Are you a new PSP owner who took advantage of the recent price cuts? Let us know.
