Three Colorful PSP Value Packs Coming To Japan This Summer

By Spencer . June 28, 2011 . 8:25am

psp1On July 28, a new PSP bundle will go on sale in Japan. Sony’s latest value pack includes a PSP-3000, 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo, pouch, cleaning cloth, AC adapter, and a 1200 mAh battery for 17,800 yen ($221).

 

This value pack will be available in three colors: piano black, blossom pink, and vibrant blue. While Sony tends to pack games with PSP hardware in North America, usually games are reserved for limited edition PSP models in Japan.

 

Sony Computer Entertainment America is targeting price conscious consumers back at home with dual packs containing two PSP games in one package. Secret Agent Clank and Daxter, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo and Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror, and Killzone Liberation and Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow will be available this week for $14.99 each.

    Or, a buyer could wait six months and get a Vita, which also plays PSP games (PSN downloads anyway), for only $30 more for the Wifi only model.  I imagine this will sell some, but I’m not sure it’s worth the trouble.  I expect most people who want a PSP have one, especially as much better as the PSP did over there.  Unless the Vita is going to sell higher in Japan, I just can’t imagine that much demand for new colored PSP-3000s.

    …even if I do really like that shade of blue.

      BUT IT’S BLUE, I MEAN, BLUE!! YOU WOULD BE THE ENVY OF PEOPLE°!!

        Not if you already have a mint green PSP. :D

        • puchinri

          You have the mint PSP? ;u;

        • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

          … Did you lick it?

    • LynxAmali

      Have they confirmed it has playback or if it has digital-only? I just got a PSP and already have a ton of games and don’t want have to rebuy them.

        It seems it will not be able to play UMD, only digital PSP games… It’s a hard thing to do, but i think it’s the best one.

        I REALLY love the UMDs and i love to hear their spinning sound on my psp… but it seems it wasnt well received in the market.

        Keep your psp close tho, it still has life :D

        • karasuKumo

          That spinning noise has tormented me for too long, trying to play it quietly at night is almost impossible -__-. I admit I will miss it haha

          “I REALLY love the UMDs and i love to hear their spinning sound on my psp”

          Uhmm. Ok then.

          May I interest you in my launch day 360? It sounds like a helicopter when it reads a disc. I think you would love it.

            Lol, i dont like it on consoles much D8< and it actually scares me if i hear it to much, but i love to have the CD reading sound and "feeling" on my hands with the psp xD

    • puchinri

      I’m glad. As long as Playasia stocks them and I have a chance to nab one, I hope they do release some other nice colored PSPs (like the mint one again!).

      • Locklear93

        Fair enough. I did say I imagined some would sell; just that I don’t really
        think it’d be enough to justify the new SKUs. Could be wrong, but I just
        don’t see it.

        • puchinri

          Understandable. I know that there were a few people even on here at least that mentioned still needing to get a PSP, and I want one myself, so I figure at least some people overseas could benefit from the PSPs.

    Ugh Why must you tempt my poor wallet with your eye candy pink and blue!? WANT!

  • anxiousheart

    Introducing Piano Black!… It’s the same PSP-3000 except it’s black- Oh wait…

  • cmurph666

    Ooh, Shiny.

    WHY don’t they come out with these colors earlier? My silver and black PSPs are so dull. Seriously, if the portable systems launched in a rainbow of colors, I would be WAY quicker to buy them (on a side note, the 3DS has the worst colors yet). I hope the Vita has at least 3 colors to choose from.

    I loved the colors of the Gameboy Color. What happened to those days?

    • Yu_TheKing

      I agree the GB color and the SP had the best colors, (imo) silver and black get old fast. The only different colors PSP-wise come from special edition and release long after people already have the system.

    • puchinri

      I think these colors were out earlier. But I don’t recall them being available for any other region. But I do wish the rest of us got all the nice colors (I really want the mint or lavender PSP).

    I just love my psp vibrant blue <3

  • puchinri

    Ah, what I wouldn’t give for the blue or pink PSP. Playasia never seems to have any PSPs, and I really want a colored one. Hopefully they’ll have something like this released again (or another nice bundle) during the holidays or early next year.

    Aw man. I want a blue psp. My silver looks so boring compared to the blue one…

  • http://ofurotaimu.dreamwidth.org shirokiryuu

    I want the blossom pink! But my PSP is still in nice condition :(

  • PrinceHeir

    blue skies :P

  • Covnam

    It’s so blue! I really need to change the shell on mine.
