PSP Gets More Greatest Hits Titles, Favorites Unveiled
Deals are great, especially considering that most consumers don't have the time or money to play every awesome title that hits store shelves.
Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (SCEA) has announced three new initiatives for their PSP system; the first of which has kicked off on June 1 and consists of the new "Favorites" software lineup. Titles in this lineup will only cost $9.99 and furthermore, a PSP Digital Game Pack will also be available to new purchasers; it boasts vouchers for three downloadable games from the Network. Beyond this new offer and the addition of the Favorites deals, the PSP's "Greatest Hits" ($19.99) library will soon grow to more than 60 total titles with the addition of LittleBigPlanet, Gran Turismo, Resistance: Retribution and Secret Agent Clank. Said Scott A. Steinberg, SCEA Vice President of Product Marketing:
"PSP is the premiere destination for full-scale, console quality gaming experiences on-the-go, and we're very pleased to be able to bring our consumers such tremendous value. These initiatives not only add value to the platform overall, but also complement the robust software lineup we'll see from both first and third-party publishers in 2010. It is easier now more than ever for new and existing PSP owners to build up their gaming libraries with amazing content."
As for the Favorites, here's a list of the first games to make the lineup:
- Ape Escape®: On the Loose
- Buzz! ™ Master Quiz
- Hot Shots Golf Open Tee®
- LocoRoco™ 2
- Patapon™ 2
- PixelJunk™ Monster Deluxe
- SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo
- Syphon Filter®: Logan's Shadow
- Twisted Metal: Head On™
Those are just the first-party titles; third-party software like Justice League Heroes, Manhunt 2, Silent Hill: Origins, The Sims 2, and The Warriors will also be among the new Favorites. Now, if you're more of a PSP Go person, you can pick one up with the same offer mentioned before (the pack with three digital game vouchers). So what are you waiting for?
