Sony Corp. (SNE)
will slash the price of its PSPgo portable game player ahead of the holiday period.
The company will cut the price of the PSPgo to $199 from $249 in the United States and to 16,800 yen ($207) from 26,800 yen in Japan, Reuters said.
Sony is cutting prices after rival Nintendo Co (NTDOY

Sony has sold about 61 million PSP units since 2004.
