PSP price set in Japan

Recommended Posts

Rumor has it that the PSP will hit the US in-time for Christmas. Trust me, Sony will not miss the holiday, not if it's out in Japan.

$200 is sweet, but 4 to 6 battery hours kinda sucks.

Sony released the information for launch titles also:

AI Series Go (Marvelous Interactive, Board)

AI Series Mahjong (Marvelous Interactive, Board)

AI Series Shogi (Marvelous Interactive, Board)

Armored Core Formula Front (From Software, Mecha Action)

Dokodemo Issyo (Sony, Interaction)

Dynasty Warriors (Koei, Action)

Hot Shots Golf (Sony, Golf)

Kollon (Cyber Front, Puzzle)

Legend of Heroes: Gagharv Trilogy (Bandai, RPG)

Lumines (Bandai, Puzzle)

Mahjong (Koei, Board)

Mahjong Kakuto Club (Konami, Board)

Metal Gear Acid (Konami, Card)

Mojipittan (Namco, Puzzle)

Need for Speed Underground Rivals (EA, Racing)

Puyo Puyo Fever (Sega, Puzzle)

Puzzle Bobble Pocket (Taito, Puzzle)

Rengoku: The Tower of Purgatory (Hudson, Action-RPG)

Ridge Racers (Namco, Racing)

Tiger Woods PGA Tour (EA, Golf)

Vampire Chronicle: The Chaos Tower (Capcom, 2D Fighting)

The ones in bold are the one's I'm most excited about.

For the price of 26,040 yen including tax ($244), consumers will be able to pick up the PSP Value Pack, which includes the following peripherals:

AC adapter (3,675 yen separately, or $34)

Battery pack (5,040 yen separately, or $47)

32-megabyte Memory Stick Duo (2,940 yen separately, or $27.50)

Headphones with remote control (2,940 yen separately, or $27.50)

Soft case and hand strap (2,100 yen separately, or $20)

Some people may bitch about the price, but considering the extras you get, it's a good deal, and falls below the 300 dollar price tag some people thought just the unit would cost by itself.

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I think that was Sony's plan all along, wait till Nintendo showed their hand for the DS, before announcing a PSP launch date. Personnaly, cosidering just how many games they showed for it at TGS, it doesn't surprise me that we may get it this year.

Wow... only one of those titles excites me, and it's the one most American's won't care about: Lumines. I would be excited about MG Acid... if it weren't a card game.

Hmmm, this list, other then Metal Gear and Armored Core, dosen't excite me that much

You do realize that Metal Gear Acid is a card game... right?

Yep, still it could be good... right?

There was a Sonic pinball game that was good IMHO, there can easily be a good Metal Gear Card game

No KScriv. Pinball is awesome. Cardgames aren't unless there are dragons, enourmous capital ships, or they are set in feudal Japan. Neither of which Metal Gear has.
