Sony PlayStation Portable Slim edition is getting really hard to find, at least in the U.S. Both Amazon and Newegg have sold all of their slim units and if you want one today, you have to pay the high price of US$259.
This has been confirmed by our man in the field, who desperately wanted to get one of them. In the end, the chap got one in some godforsaken Wal-Mart, outside of Houston, Texas for US$169.99 w/o tax or $183 incl. tax.
We don’t know if this availability issue will get better, and we know that many want to buy one of these nice slim consoles for Christmas. You can check Newegg here and Amazon here and if you really want one, go here and pay US$260+. If we hear that there are cheaper ones out there, we will let you know.
