The arrival of a new PSP hardware bundle may seem ill-timed with the impending launch
of the Vita, but Sony isn't about to stop catering to the gift-craving siblings, cousins and nephews of the world this holiday. And we don't know about you, but we don't have any nephews that are worth spending two hundred and fifty
Instead, for $160 you can pick up the new PSP Entertainment Pack
, which includes a PSP-3000, 2GB Memory Stick Pro DUO, a UMD copy of soccer smash FIFA 12
and a download voucher for Cars 2
(a racing game, we'd venture). The bundle should be available on November 15th.
If you're jumping into PlayStation Portable gaming now (and feel free to use the "nephew" excuse we fabricated above), you should keep an eye out for the Mega Man and Monster Hunter
packs at Gamestop. That is, if you're willing to add UMD clutter to your life -- with an uncertain
shot at backwards compatibility.
