New PSP Bundle announced; PSP Refuses to Die

Sony Europe’s announcement of a new PSP SKU this past gamescom came as a surprise to many, with people thinking that, since the PS Vita is coming out soon, the PSP will be put to rest. Sony has once again proved that they’ll keep on supporting the original handheld by announcing a new PSP bundle coming for this holiday season, only this time it is for North America.

The PS Blog revealed that a new PSP Entertainment Pack will release on November 15th. Carrying a retail price of $159.99, the pack will contain a black PSP-3000, 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, a copy of FIFA 2012 on UMD and a PlayStation Network voucher to download Cars 2: The Video Game.

Current owners of PSP can purchase Cars 2 separately when the game releases on November 8th for $29.99 on PSN and UMD.

As a proud owner of 6 PSPs, this bundle is not for me. For some who are interested in having a PlayStation system on the go and not wanting to get a PS Vita at launch,this is certainly a good deal.
