Hello PlayStation.Blog Readers! My name is Jeff Pena and I’m one of the producers for Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron over at LucasArts. As you’re all probably aware, Renegade Squadron is the next installment in the Star Wars Battlefront franchise, but this time it’s being made exclusively for the PSP. We’ve been working really hard with the folks at Rebellion to make a great game worthy of the Star Wars Battlefront name, and it’s almost showtime – though it’s hard to believe it’s so soon, the game goes on sale this Tuesday, October 9th!

Which leads me to why I’m posting here. As you’re also probably aware, Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron will be bundled with the Star Wars Battlefront Entertainment Pack that will also be released on October 9th. For $199, you get a copy of the game and a sweet new white PSP with a silkscreen of Darth Vader on the back. This is the only way you’re going to be able to get this PSP, folks! We’re really excited to be working with Sony and can’t wait to see the reaction when the game and the new PSP Pack come out.

And we’d be honored if you would join us next Tuesday to celebrate. Next Tuesday, starting at 6pm, we’ll be co-hosting a launch party with Sony at the PlayStation Store at the Metreon in San Francisco (sorry to those who are too far away!). We’ll be giving out tons of prizes and other goodies (including special Han Solo in Carbonite PSP cases to the first 200 people who buy a Star Wars Battlefront PSP bundle), hosting impromptu multiplayer matches, and generally whooping it up with attendees. Word on the street is that Darth Vader himself has taken notice of the event and will also be on hand, as will a regiment of the 501st Squadron and other assorted bounty hunters and other well-known Star Wars characters. If you’re a PSP fan, a Star Wars fan, a Star Wars Battlefront fan, or just someone who likes to be where the action is, you’ve gotta be at the Metreon next Tuesday!

Hope to see you there!

Jeff should have mentioned in his blog entry about the fact that the event was for the bundle only.
I waited in line for almost an hour before somebody from the PSstore came by with wrist bands guaranteeing me a bundle. only then did he tell me that:
“we are only selling the bundle we dont have any copies of the actual game.”
needless to say i was really disappointed, and didnt stay for the event.

how could they not have any copies of the game? only bundles? that is wrong! oh well, let’s hope they learned from that mistake.
