An expected move with a new portable on the way, Sony has dropped the price of the PSP-3000 model from $170 to $130 in the States. The reduction will go into effect this Sunday, February 27th, and comes in conjunction with massive software deductions across the PSP library.

Assassin’s Creed: Bloodlines, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Toy Story 3: The Video Game have all been adopted into the $20 “Greatest Hits” label, while older titles like Daxter have dropped further into the $10 “Favorites” line.
