More $9.99 PSP Favorites in Time for Back-to-School

John Koller's Avatar Posted by Vice President, PlayStation Brand Marketing, SIEA

Hi everyone! Recently, we announced a number of great new PSP packs will be available this year – the Madden NFL 11 PSP bundle was made available earlier this week, the InviZimals PSP Entertainment Pack will be available this October, and the God of War: Ghost of Sparta PSP Entertainment Pack will be in stores this November. Now, we’re taking the action straight into back-to-school with a ton of other great games for just $9.99 (MSRP).


Back in June, we debuted the PSP “Favorites” software line, a value line that brings you a great selection of your favorite PSP titles at an even greater price – $9.99. We’ve added more games for you to choose from, some of which are already available now and others that are coming soon, such as Burnout Legends, Capcom Classics Collection: Reloaded, Capcom Classics Collection: Remix, Dark Stalkers: Chaos Tower, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Medal of Honor: Heroes, Sid Meier’s Pirates! and many more. To date, we have nearly 25 PSP “Favorites” available in the library and you can expect this number to grow well into this holiday season. Soon, games included in the PSP Favorites library will have “Favorites” on the packaging. Make sure to look out for it when you’re at your local retailer. Here’s a quick reminder of what games we previously announced:

  • Ape Escape: On the Loose
  • Buzz! Master Quiz
  • Hot Shots Golf Open Tee
  • Justice League Heroes
  • LocoRoco 2
  • Manhunt 2
  • Midway Arcade Treasures: Extended Play
  • Patapon 2
  • Pinball Hall of Fame
  • PixelJunk Monster Deluxe
  • Silent Hill: Origins
  • The Sims 2
  • SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo
  • Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow
  • Twisted Metal: Head On
  • The Warriors

Now that school’s back in session, Kevin Butler’s favorite protégé is at it again. Starting today, you’ll be seeing the latest Marcus spot on TVs nationwide. Here’s an early look at how Marcus will help you from getting schooled…

With great games like Madden NFL 11, KINGDOM HEARTS Birth By Sleep and InviZimals coming this fall, as well as a whole slate of engaging $9.99 titles, this holiday promises to be a fun one for PSP owners.

Let us know your thoughts and enjoy!

As a marketing device, I find Marcus inoffensive. That said, all of my portable gaming/film-viewing is done on the PSP.

@58 I like Patapon, but if you get Patapon2 there’s no need for the first one, simple as that. Patapon2 has all that the first one had plus lots more stuff, best PSP game hands down :)

That commercial was kinda funny…

However the slogan should be “IT ONLY DOES EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE.” Like the PS3 version, but with an extra word tacked on…

Just sayin…

Great commercial, but who knew it would send people into rage on a site like Kotaku. XD Handheld games (PSP or DS) will always be way deeper than almost all games on the App Store.

PLEASE reduce the price for assassin’s creed bloodlines for the PSP… You can buy the UMD for 17 dollars on or walk into any gamestop and buy it for 20 dollars. You guys have it up there for 40. Come on guys please update this!

How about adding all older Sony titles to this line? I mean, seriously, you have Untold Legends, one of which was a launch title, still at $15. (I have the UMD, but I want to buy it on PSN because of the terrible loading, but I’m not paying $15+ again for it).

Yes, I realize it’s SoE, but you people at Sony need to realize you’re on the same team and play well together.

And while dissing the iPhone is fun, perhaps you could convince Square Enix to put their PSP games up on PSN, not the iTunes store (Final Fantasy 1&2, and the PSP remake of FFT…)

I just wanted to say Thank You for this Sony. Due to this program, I started out with a PSP and three games for $100. That was about four to five weeks ago. Now I have over 22 games and counting. I believe I have almost all of the $9.99 games you have put out so far(many of which were at this $10 price for the past 3 weeks before yesterday’s announcement), besides the following which I will try and locate for purchase soon.

•The Warriors
•The Sims 2
•Manhunt 2
•Pinball Hall of Fame

When the 3DS hits, Sony’s going to need a lot more than a kid who doesn’t even appeal to core gamers to sell PSPs. Why they chose this Marcus kid, I don’t know. The people who are interested in PSPs are core gamers, and those Marcus ads don’t make me want a PSP over an iphone, droid, or even a DS. Sorry Sony, you have a great home console, but you need to work on your handhelds.
