The EEDAR has weighed in a prediction price for the NGP launch price.
All versions of the NGP released in Japan will have Wi-Fi capabilities as well as 3G connectivity built-in, but SCEE boss Andrew House says that a cheaper, Wi-Fi only version will be available for consumers outside Japan:
The first thing to clarify, which I’m not sure the presentation did a perfect job of doing today, is that all of the devices will have Wi-Fi capability; a separate SKU will have 3G.
This comes as good news to potential buyers, as the details surrounding the service providers and exact pricing of the device's 3G connections remain unknown. If it turns out to be a bit too pricey, buyers can opt for a version that's cheaper both to both and own.
