LocoRoco PSP bundle announced...for Japan

SCEJ announces plans to ship limited edition set that combines white or black PSP with upcoming puzzle game.

45 Comments

The official LocoRoco Web site disclosed that Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will be bundling the game with the Sony PSP as part of a limited edition set. The bundle goes on sale July 13 and will come with a standard black or ceramic white PSP, battery pack, AC adapter, the retail version of LocoRoco (which is also releasing on July 13 in the country), and a 32MB Memory Stick Duo card. The package retails for 24,800 yen (about $216), but the truly hardcore LocoRoco fans can shell out an extra 1,575 yen ($14) for a colorful LocoRoco PSP pouch.

the reason that this works and some other game bundle wouldnt is because loco roco has a great design potential. thats why the pouch looks so good. it wouldnt have the same charm if it was any other game. the fact that loco roco is so different makes it a good product to spread out throguh different mediums.

Too bad I already have a PSP, or i'd import this pack and get a white PSP (it'd match my DS Lite... lol) anyways, it would be a good idea to bring that out in the states, since the PSP is getting killed in sales by the DS, which was had no less than 3 pack-in bundles... sounds like a good idea to me, and it obviously works...

The pouch looks bad, but the box for the bundle looks pretty cool. I got the demo for the game and loved it, so I can't wait to get the full version when it comes out.

"I wanted to buy a PSP just for the sake of Loco Roco!!! I want Loco Rocolized PSP NOW!!! " Same here. There are no current PSP games that I feel are must-haves, but LocoRoco is. I just might have to get a PSP.

Aren't PSPs region free except for UMD movies though? You could always just import the bundle or white PSP.

Where are the NA white PSP's? I don't really care about bundles... if I want a game, I'll buy it seperately and pay a little more, no biggie. Please just release a white PSP for NA.... no bundle.

There are apparently 13 million PSP owners out there. You'd think Sony would consider a couple of different new game bundles for its western audiences, including a LocoRoco one.

Not so, latinchemist. Plenty of hardcore gamers would go for this because it'a a break from the blood and gore. I don't mind bashing grunt heads in with my assault rifle, but sometimes I just want to relax and play something that doesn't require the creation of ten thousand dead things to win the game. It's why Animal Crossing is so popular, despite being pretty dumb when you think about it. (Goes to play AC)

People in the states wouldn't go for this at all. If its not bloodied and gored up, nobody wants it here. /sigh at American culture. (tries to outbid xxPantherxx on eBay)

It seems such a bundle would do great in the United States. It'll most likely bring up PSP sales considerably, in Japan.

This game may make the PSP. If this game does not go well I think that it in Japan.
