Sony wants more of your money, and with news that their PSP Go is even being outsold be the ancient PS2 in Japan, we guess they finally realized that the stock PSP-3000 is still the handheld console to purchase from their company. With that in mind, Sony has announced the availability of the limited-edition Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker PSP Entertainment Pack. Available in Canada as well as the US, it will retail for $199.99 to coincide with the launch of the stand-alone game when it rolls out later this year on June 8th. There is nothing to download there since the game itself will come on the tried and tested UMD format, bringing a whole lot of gameplay which will revolutionize the handheld game experience – at least that is what Sony claims. Find out what you will get inside the package right after the jump.
This limited-edition package will see the debut of a “Spirited Green” PSP-3000 system, making it the inaugural moment where the color will be available in North America. Apart from that, you will also get special in-game content including an exclusive Camouflage Uniform with FOX logos and Stealth Gun feature, where both of them will be unlocked early in the game. There is also the inclusion of a PlayStation Network downloadable movie voucher (this is applicable to US residents only with the title yet to be announced) and a 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo. It would be a no-brainer that this is going to be a best seller when it hits the market, but just how high the sales figures will go is another question altogether.
While this is not a Nintendo DS where folks don’t mind picking up multiple instances of the diminutive console simply to complete their collection, we are quite sure that there will be a segment of the population out there who won’t mind forking out $199.99 to own yet another Sony PSP in a different color, but in these economically trying times, that might not be as easy as it sounds.
