God of War Red PSP Bundle Coming in June

Sony Computer Entertainment America today announced the God of War PSP Entertainment Pack, a limited-edition offering that celebrates the debut of the best-selling God of War franchise on PSP. This special bundle will feature a limited-edition Deep Red PSP with the God of War himself, Kratos, silkscreened on the back of the unit; the highly anticipated God of War: Chains of Olympus game; the hit comedy movie from Columbia Pictures, Superbad, on UMD; and a PlayStation Network voucher to download the Syphon Filter: Combat Ops from the PlayStation Store for free.

“God of War is one of the biggest PlayStation franchises, and with its portable premiere on PSP just around the corner, we wanted to offer something special that would appeal to both loyal God of War fans and non-owners who want to enjoy PSP’s multi-functionality,” said Scott A. Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA.

“This bundle delivers great value, starting with the Deep Red PSP, one of the most highly sought-after colors based on our consumer research, and the Kratos silkscreen. We are also showcasing the diverse entertainment experience PSP offers, centered on a UMD game in God of War: Chains of Olympus that’s every bit as impressive as its console sequels, a free download of IGN.com’s 2007 PSP Multiplayer Game of the Year, Syphon Filter: Combat Ops, and a box office hit movie in Superbad,” Mr. Steinberg continued.

The standalone version of God of War: Chains of Olympus launches on March 4. The God of War PSP Entertainment Pack will be available for $199.99 (MSRP) in June 2008 and includes the components listed above. The only downside to this otherwise tempting bundle? No memory stick pro duo will be included in the kit. However, consumers can buy a 2GB stick for as low as $25 on some websites.
