More PSP budget reissues hitting Japan

Sony Computer Entertainment adds six more games to its PSP: The Best lineup.

TOKYO--In Japan, Sony Computer Entertainment announced it will release six additional PSP games as budget-priced reissues under the PSP: The Best brand on March 2. The series is akin to the Greatest Hits series for the PlayStation 2.

SCE previously released 13 titles as PSP: The Best reissues in November, and it will also release Koei's Dynasty Warriors as part of the series on February 16.

The budget-priced reissues up until now were mostly games that appeared around the PSP's launch. The March lineup covers the missing titles from the period, and there are also a few newer games, like Konami's Coded Arms. The games are priced at 2,800 yen ($24), nearly half of their official catalog price of 4,800 yen ($41). Konami's Mahjong Fight Club will be an exception at 2,000 yen ($17).

The complete lineup is as follows:

Bleach: Heat the Soul (PSP: The Best), Konami
Coded Arms (PSP: The Best), Konami
Mahjong Fight Club (PSP: The Best), Konami
Piposaru Academia (PSP: The Best) [Ape Escape Academy], SCEI
Saru Get You P! (PSP: The Best) [Ape Escape: On the Loose], SCEI
Shutokou Battle (PSP: The Best) [Street Supremacy], SCEI

PSP doesn't good games. And Japan is and will be more important than US to Sony. (Cause it's where it belongs!)

Hmmm... well, they say Japanese gamers don't like FPS all that much yet a not-so-good FPS makes it as a "The Best" title in Japan? That doesn't make much since. Maybe it was the wierd virtual world that it took place in that drew them to it?

I really dont mean to rant on this one, but i really dont care about game prices unless its stateside. Mainly because coded arms sucked big time and some of those games never even made it to the u.s.

This is great, but when will we get a similar lineup (I'm thinking it will be "Greatest Hits" here). I want to pick up Metal Gear Acid really bad, but I don't want to pay $40 for it!

FFman: Maybe because Lumines is already out as a PSP: The Best title? Along with games like Ridge Racer.

I wonder why Lumines is not on the list.

Any bets on which will come over from Japan first for the PSP; lower-priced "The Best" games (our equivalent of Greatest Hits) or porn on UMD?

This is so underwhelming that I think I'm going to go read about something more interesting..... such as how rubber is manufactured into rubber for the soles of my shoes
