Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today launched its eagerly anticipated PSPTM(PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system across the European market and throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Following the success of the PSP launches in Japan and the USA, and with over 5 million PSP systems already shipped worldwide, PSP launched today in a single version Value Pack, priced at €249 (£179). The PSP Value Pack contains an added-value package of accessories and entertainment content, including the PSP system with a pouch, 32MB Memory Stick DuoTM, Battery Pack, Headphones with Remote Control, AC Adaptor, Wrist Strap, cloth and a video/music/game sampler Universal Media DiscTM (UMDTM) including several game demos.

The official SCEE web portal for PSP, www.yourpsp.com allows PSP owners to view trailers and screenshots from a wide selection of PSP Game, UMD Video and UMD Music titles, as well as accessing the latest software updates and a host of regularly updated competitions, news and features about PSP. Consumers will also be able to download exclusive content to their PSP.
PSP in Europe will launch with over 30 game titles, all of which have been developed especially to exploit PSP's stunning high resolution TFT widescreen display. Featuring classic PlayStation brands that have been re-invented for the new format, alongside some all-new properties, the games catalogue offers something for everyone. For speed demons, there's the new turbo-charged Ridge RacerTM; sport fans can showboat their skills in World Tour Soccer and Everybody's GolfTM; there's madcap monkey madness in Ape AcademyTM with mini-games ranging from monkey hockey to the '1m Dash'; and the legendary MediEvilTM: Resurrection delivers action, humour and an adventure that will challenge all levels of gamer.
