$200 Bloodlines bundle arrives in November with white PSP-3000, 2GB memory stick, and a UMD movie.
Sony is looking to make a killing with its next PSP bundle. The electronics giant today detailed a new limited edition Entertainment Pack, one featuring the murderously minded Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines.
Set for release in November, the bundle will include Ubisoft's action game, a white PSP-3000, a 2GB memory stick, and an unspecified UMD movie. As with comparable PSP hardware bundles in the past, The Assassin's Creed Entertainment Pack will sell for $199.99.
Serving as a bridge between the original Assassin's Creed and this holiday season's sequel, Bloodlines will pick up the story of Altair after the first game's events. Developed by Griptonite Games (the studio behind the DS and PSP editions of X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Bloodlines will incorporate open-world exploration and combat based on the original Xbox 360, PS3, and PC game, with a variety of new mission types thrown in.
The portable pursuits of Altair will also interface with the PS3 edition of Ubisoft's full-fledged Assassin's Creed sequel when it arrives November 17. Upgrades and unlockables earned by players in the handheld game will carry over to the console title, and vice-versa.
I am saving up my quarters to get this, what a cool concept, of transferring in-game data between consoles that can be used. Wow.
A white 3000 sounds awesome!!! I may have to finally upgrade from the 1000. I was hoping they would bring out more colours for the PSP 3000.
thats great news but what sucks is the fact that i have a psp but i dont have a ps3. my friend has a ps3 but i'm not sure if he wants to buy assassin's creed 2 just so i could get upgrades.
for 200 dollers my god. the psp go itself is that much so i supose its a good deal but im not going to pay and ill say for the millionthed time i want to see wat we will think when it comes out
Wow this game looks great graphics-wise, and the white color sounds pretty good looking. I might just have to pick this up in preparation for the rumored Sly Cooper PSP release. It's coming... it's coming... I am NOT in denial! :D
Sony is bass-ackwards!!! Their about to drop the Hannah Montanah" Lilac PSP-3000 bundle next month. Then, they're dropping the PSPGo in October only to follow that up with an Assassin's Creed Bundle in November. Sony has it's head up it's aholeah! Not very good marketing strategy. It's not like they have too many White PSP's in inventory because, when the white one was released it was released in the Battle Front 2 bundle in which was a PSP-2000 (& not a PSP-3000). Apparently, Sony execs are slow in the head. I don't know why anyone in their right mind would buy a PSPGo unless they don't have a PSP & are in the market to get one. It's just better to wait for the oft rumored PSP2 to come out & not this new(er) PSP version 1.4.
im going to stick with my psp 1000. we had a long run together and i COMPLETELY changed the faceplate and umd back on it... so beautiful
i think i should be patient and stick with my cracked screen and broke wi-fi PSP until MGS: Peace maker comes out cause we all know that will most likey have a bundle, which will probably be nice
For everyone whos saying PSP GO needs vouchers... it does. They're called PSN Cards and you can buy them at Target or Wal Mart. Not hard.
people say warrior within was the worst pop, why then is ubi trying to do the same as revelations with this? :P depends on how much stuff is new, ill probly be on the boards after its out. how does he get back in the machine?
is this game gonna boost da sales of da psp or wat ? i mean da grafix look pretty slick and so does the game although any game starting with the words 'assassin's creed' is as good as gold for me.
@Okwdfavrea: yes, I agree: the PSP-GO should have been a PSP2, with more powerful specs and 2 control sticks (and compatible with PSP 1 games, albeit in downloadble format only).... instead now we have too many SKUs :(and they want to promote digital services but still do new bundles of "traditional" models and stuff. Sony biggest problem is still a lack of clear direction....
All I want is a 2nd analog stick. I don't care if it flips and can only download games, I just want another control stick.
@fiskefyren: Your lack of knowledge about the English language astounds me. You would think a person who is about to throw somebody down would take a quick peak at their own grammar skills before they made themselves look like an idiot. As per the PSPGo they have yet to announce anything about that system that entails a bit of physical evidence towards having bought your games. It is very simple for them to "lose" the info that you bought it, as well as it is likely that I may accidentally drop it into some water. Then what do I do? Just buy ALL the games on it again? Even if the games where only 7 bucks if it indeed held 100 games that is 700 dollars down the drain! I don't think so. I love having my physical copies so that way if something happens I will not have lost everything.
sweet i was thinking bout getting the rock band bundle... but it looks like i better get this one instead!!
i'm not fond of white, i just wished that they would keep that awesome looking red God of War one, that was sick.
do you think this game is worth the buy?? from the looks of it, I would have to say HECK YEAH!! But that is just me
im with spacer69 im not getting another psp unless it has a second analog stick my 2000 is working just fine
Ok agreed. The PSP Go is too advanced for the average consumer at the moment. Just as the PS3 was too advanced for the average consumer when it was released, and I still personally think it is too advanced for people to appreciate.
Is this like Assassin's Creed 1 on the PSP? If so, I don't think its worth getting, already have one on the PS3. :)
I dont understand why Sony is going to have 2 PSPs on deck. The 3000 and the Go. This is like when T-Mobile released the SideKick Slide and LX around the same time period. One fails and the other succeeds. Then they want to know why they are losing so much money this gen.
Not buying this bundle since I have a psp-3000 plus I won't buy another psp system until dual analog sticks appear on the system.
Ugh. If this is made by the guys who made Wolverine for the PSP, don't get your hopes up. That game was god awful.
If I had the money to buy a PSP I would get this bundle. xmitchconnorx Mandalore_15 I am a game collector but that doesn't mean I have all the systems or buy the same game twice. I simply don't trade the games I buy in and I like all my CD's and cases to look nice. I have to agree buying the same system twice is a total waste of money.
