New PSP Titles Sneak Onto Retail Charts
What is EA Replay? Well, GameStop's online store featured the listing last August, slated as a release for the PSP. It's supposed to be a retro-style compilation including 14 different games and a bunch of bonus stuff. Sounds great, and we have more news about...another Replay?
Over the past week, GameStop added a listing for EA Replay 2 for the PSP, but this one lacked any details besides the price and release date- February 19 and $29.99. Of course, GameStop yanked the listing before we could scrounge up any more info, but they just can't keep the game from popping up; it has now appeared on the Barnes & Noble online store.
More new PSP games showed up on GameStop's site, probably for the purpose of preorders. Both Guitar Hits (Ubisoft; February 27, $29.99) and Dragon Ball Z: Shin Budokai Another Road (Atari; March 20, $39.99) are listed right now. We don't have much info regarding either game, but we do know that Another Road should be a direct sequel to last year's Shin Budokai. As for Guitar Hits, it's currently labeled as a "simulation." Hmm...
Obviously, none of these listings are the final word on anything; games appear and disappear on a consistent basis, so take it all with a grain of salt. Still, it appears this is some good news for PSP owners, no matter how you slice it.
