PSP Giga Pack for holiday season

PSP Giga Pack for holiday season A new PSP pack will be available for the holiday season this year, the PSP Giga Pack, Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has announced. The most significant difference between the giga pack and the value pack is the swapping of the standard 32MB Memory Stick Duo for a 1GB Memory Stick Duo. The price is also different. The giga pack will cost games $299 in North America, 299 in Europe and 29,800 yen ($258) in Japan.
The pack also includes a stand not included with the value pack, allowing users to watch movies without the need to hold the console. It also includes a USB cable which the value pack is missing. However, it does not include a hand strap for the PSP so anybody who wants one will have to pick one up separately.

It is a good deal though, for $50 extra you get an extra 968MB for photos, music, videos or homebrew (unless the PSP firmware is higher than version 2.00, if so, you can leave out the homebrew for now). Gamers that held out on buying a PSP until the holiday season should be glad that they have done so.

Excellent deal, i know of people who bought 1 gb memory sticks or $80 just recently, this is way better.

i didnt like PSP to much because it didnt come with an Eternal HD... but using a Memory stick that holds 1 GB is good. Ill buy the PSP w/ 1 GB.

I don't think that they are asking people to load this up with games. I think in their mind they are trying to toe off with Apple and the iPod following and the mp3 listener. Now for everyone here we know what will go on the card. Hey sony the PSP is a game system it's no stand alone mp3 player. Atleast one that could fit in your pocket.
