Rumor: NGP price and release date revealed?

Sony’s just-announced Next Generation Portable (NGP) might be out this time next year, according to GameStop.

A database screenshot from the specialty retailer pegs the NGP to debut on January 1, 2012 at a price point of $299.

The January 1 date is more than likely a placeholder date, but the price point definitely falls within the range of what the device is believed to cost.

Would you pay $300 for the device? Would you get up on New Year’s Day to buy it?
