Buy PSP Go, Get Voucher For Rock Band Unplugged
Remember the good ol' days when a game came with a new game system? Even if you weren't wholly enamored with that particular title, at least it gave you something to play right off the bat.
This is all the more crucial when the system in question is a little pricey. Take, for example, the PSP Go: we recently heard a rumor that it may actually be one of the PlayStation products that will earn a price cut. But if this doesn't prove true and you still desire to own that sleek little digital wonder, you may want to opt for Best Buy. According to GameSpot, it seems that the retailer in question will offer the unit, USB cable, AC adapter and a voucher for Rock Band Unplugged. The game released in June to decent reviews and currently retails for $29.99 (it did debut at the standard $39.99). Neither Sony or Harmonix offered to comment on this Best Buy offer, so we're not really sure if this voucher is exclusive to the retailer, or if it will be included in any and all PSP Go boxes. We'd like to think they will give you something extra for your $250; although that was the original starting point for the first PSP, it's still a little high in the eyes of many gamers. What say you on the matter? Too high...?
For our part, we just love the idea of all game systems coming with a game in the box. That's one feature we left behind in the old days that absolutely should return...how's about dropping Gran Turismo 6 into the PS4 box? Yeeeeaaaah.
