LOS ANGELES--As 50 Cent would say, "The PSP is blowin' up, son!" As Yoda would say, "Increasing it's library the PSP is." However you say it, the lineup of top-tier PlayStation Portable games is constantly growing. Scouring the E3 floor, PSP owners noticed that two more AAA titles will be hittin' up their handhelds: Star Wars: Battlefront II and 50 Cent: Bulletproof.

LucasArts' sequel to its Battlefield-esque Star Wars game was recently announced by the publisher for home consoles. But today, the sci-fi shooter was confirmed for the PSP. In the game, Rebels-in-training can wield lightsabers as Jedi, hop into TIE fighters on the fly, or run rampant around the Death Star. Developer Pandemic, who worked on Mercenaries and Full Spectrum Warrior, has not announced a timetable for the game's release. Battlefield II will also appear on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC.

The war won't rage solely in space. PSP owners will also roll with G Unit's main man, 50 Cent, in 50 Cent: Bulletproof. The fall-release game stars the rap mogul as he gets caught in a web of deception and corruption and sticks it to "The Man." The game will feature Mr. Cent's crew, including Eminem and Dr. Dre, as well as musical tracks from the star and other G Unit members. VU Games today also announced that Bulletproof will appear on the PS2 and Xbox.
