Sony has announced a new PSP option called the PSP Giga Pack. Beginning in November, gamers can purchase the package that includes a PSP system, a 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo, battery pack, AC adaptor, USB Cable, and an all-new PSP Stand for $299. The offer is only for a limited time. The 1 GB Memory Stick Pro Duo will be sold separately later this year. The PSP Giga Pack will also come with PSP Firmware 2.0 pre-installed.
"As we approach our first holiday season with PSP, offering consumers a new value option in the Giga Pack demonstrates our commitment to allowing consumers further control and customize their entertainment options," commented Jack Tretton, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing and co-COO at Sony Computer Entertainment America. "It is natural for our company to use our resources and experience to pass along value to the consumers, and offer those great values with the most current technology. This new dual hardware structure will broaden the unprecedented portable entertainment already provided by PSP and drive a strong year for the category, particularly during the key selling season."
