Worldwide PSP releases for the week of July 27

It's raining outside and the weather is making us feel sleepy. Just like this rainstorm brewing outside our window, this week's PSP releases is giving us that lethargic vibe. We could use a little thunder.

NA Games:
  • No new releases
EU Games:
Asian Games:
Phantasy Star Portable seems to be the only worthy title this week. With that said, we'll slip into an early slumber this evening.

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of July 20

Okay, so there are no new games for North America this week again; however, if you've been keeping watch on E3, there are tons of awesome games to look forward to in the near future. We're talking Resistance Retribution and Super Stardust Portable. (Hands on impressions coming next week!)

Yikes. Japan really knows how to make us jealous, don't they?

Deal: Final Fantasy Tactics for $20


PSP had a number of excellent SRPG games to choose from during last year's holiday season. Final Fantasy Tacticsc: The War of the Lions was one of them. The quintessential PS1 game got a makeover when it moved to PSP, with beautiful new cutscenes and a whole bevvy of new quests. The game is now available for a 50% discount on amazon.com -- $20. If you missed out on this title last year, this may be a good time to jump.

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of July 13

As E3 is a-coming, we expected to have a more barren list of releases for this week. It seems that we were quite wrong about that. New games include anime platforming coming from the big-headed kids of Code Lyoko. NCAA 2009 represents the sports games, while that Go! Explore device thing-a-ma-jig is finally coming out in Europe.

Meanwhile, in Japan, Gundam continues to be milked dry. At the same time, there's more school-based romantic adventures in the form of HimeHibi. Oh, just when will we ever see a Gundam romance game?

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of July 6

Not much is going on this week. North America witnesses emptiness for the second week in a row, while Europe is lapping up all the games we got from the previous month.

NA Games:
  • No new releases

Asian Games:
Japan is finally getting God of War: Chains of Olympus. Also, the sight of Nobunaga's Ambition there makes this blogger question when will Koei ever bring a real Ambition game to the States? Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power on the PS2 doesn't count; it's essentially Kessen with slightly more micromanagement. Oh the questions we hardcore gamers ask sometimes ...

PSP games go on sale at amazon.com


Some good deals here for those looking to expand their PSP collections.
Our pick? Viewtiful Joe. If you're looking for some mini-games, you may be interested in WTF. MLB and NBA are both rather solid sports titles for the handheld. Just make sure you avoid Gangs of London at all costs.

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of June 29

There's nothing this week for North Americans. Seems we're slipping back into the dark ages again. However, John Koller says a dark age is not on the verge. He says the titles are coming. Hear that people? The titles are coming. We're looking forward to a PSP renaissance.

NA Games:
  • No new releases

Elsewhere in the world, since there are places other than North America, we're seeing a lot of stuff that isn't really "new" per se.

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of June 22

This week has a healthy set of games. It's always nice to pencil in a game name or two instead of "no new releases," which, if you've been following this weekly post every Sunday, is something we got used to seeing. As the summer movies come in, so will their games; hence, why we have both Hellboy and Wall-E this week.

The Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2 box art looks quite good. We're real suckers for flame designs and swirling energy.

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of June 15

PSP releases are much better this week. There's a solid lineup for all major regions. Whether you want to shoot up aliens or sneak around in a robo tux, the option is there for you to choose.

EU Games:
Asian Games:
We can say we're quite jealous of the Crisis Core bundle that Europe is getting. Then again, we've already been playing the game for the past three months.

Deal of the Day: Downstream Panic! for $15

Fans of PSP's LocoRoco would heed our advice and find a copy of Atari's lovable Downstream Panic!. This PSP-exclusive puzzle game has stylish graphics, and fun gameplay -- yet never got the attention it deserved. Yes, this is another fantastic exclusive that was ignored, left to cry by the wayside.

Now that this innovative fish-saving game (seriously) has dropped to $15 on amazon.com, you have almost no choice not to buy it. Word to wise, however. In spite its ridiculously cute looks, this is one incredibly challenging puzzle game.

Worldwide PSP releases for the week of June 8

No new releases for this week in North America. That's okay for us. We'll be too busy playing Metal Gear Solid 4 on our PS3s anyway. Besides, next week's releases are going to be great, so wait it out one more week ladies and gentlemen. Europe on the other hand is getting the most love for this week:

NA Games:
  • No new releases

Asian Games:
Pretty good week for Europe. It actually turns out that LEGO Indy is releasing this week. These silly retail dates; they keep jumping around everywhere. Thank God that World Championship Cards has shipped and we won't have to write about that again. Doh, we just did.

Deal of the Day: Every Extend Extra for $13

Cult shooter Every Extend Extra may not have reached the same acclaim as Q Entertainment's other PSP game, Lumines, but it's a pretty solid addition to one's PSP collection. In Every Extend Extra, players must strategically blow themselves up and create chains to damage enemies. The unique visuals and hypnotic soundtrack create a surreal experience. But be warned! The game is relentlessly difficult (unlike the XBLA sequel).

You can get it for $13 shipped at Play-Asia. It's a rather interesting PSP exclusive, so you may want to give it a try.

PSP game tops Japanese charts, not Monster Hunter

Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu Portable 3, a baseball title, has topped Japan's weekly software charts this week. With a staggering 117,000 units sold, the game has sold double the amount of units over last week's top spot Pro Yakyuu Team o Tsukurou! (another baseball game) for the Nintendo DS.

Other PSP games are doing well. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G is still in the charts since its release back in March. It has, however, dropped down from second place to fifth with 45,000 units sold this week. Valhalla Knights 2 pops up on the chart at number eight with 32,000 units sold. While all these third party titles are doing well in Japan, seeing such strength and support in Western markets is going to be harder to find.
