Additionally, a PSP go “Digital Game Pack” will be available to new purchasers, offering PlayStation®Network DLC vouchers for three premiere PSP titles. Furthermore, the PSP system’s “Greatest Hits” library will grow to more than 60 titles with four newly added games.

At $9.99, the new PSP “Favorites” software line offers some of the PSP system’s most popular games at an amazing price. Available at most retailers, PSP Favorites include a wide variety of genres from family-friendly gaming to first-person shooters. Software titles included in the PSP Favorites line are:

  • Ape Escape®: On the Loose
  • Buzz! ™ Master Quiz
  • Hot Shots Golf Open Tee®
  • LocoRoco™ 2
  • Patapon™ 2
  • PixelJunk™ Monster Deluxe

  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP®)
  • Ratchet and Clank®: Size Matters

Similar to the “Greatest Hits” line available for the PlayStation® system, the PSP system’s Greatest Hits have reached a significant sales threshold and represent the highest caliber of quality software titles available on the PSP system. Available for $19.99 , the newest additions to the PSP system’s Greatest Hits library include:

  • Gran Turismo™

From the new PSP Favorites, an expanding Greatest Hits library, a PSPgo Digital Game Pack, and exclusive Entertainment Packs, PSP continues to redefine the notion of portable entertainment and will see great momentum in 2010. With highly anticipated titles from Sony Computer Entertainment such as God of War: Ghost of Sparta, Hot Shots Tennis: Get A Grip, Invizimals™, upcoming third-party releases including KINGDOM HEARTS Birth by Sleep (Square Enix), METAL GEAR SOLID®: PEACE WALKER (Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.) and many more arriving later this year, PSP continues to deliver unparalleled gaming experiences only possible on the PSP platform. Clearly the best option around for mobile gaming, especially with all of these new additions to the PSP.
