Sony has dropped the UK price of the PSPgo, a download-only version of the handheld console, in plenty of time for Christmas.

From November 1, the device will sell for £160 - a £65 reduction. By comparison, the larger PSP that supports Universal Media Discs is available for £135.

The cuts follow those announced yesterday in Japan of roughly £84 and US price drops, reported last week, of a mere £32.
