Sony is to slash the price of many games for its handheld PSP console.
The company hopes that by cutting the price of games sold on its Universal Media Disc (UMD) format, it can boost sales of the Playstation Portable device.
The price cuts follow an announcement by Sony's UK division that it plans to revive UK interest in the PSP.
As well as cutting prices, Sony plans to give away free games with the latest version of its PSP, the PSPgo.
Sony's South American division announced that it would be bundling three PSP titles with every new PSPgo bought. The free games include LittleBigPlanet, SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3, and Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters.
Sony has announced the names of the first nine PSP titles whose prices will be slashed to $9.99: SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3; LocoRoco 2; Patapon 2; PixelJunk Monster Deluxe; Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow; Buzz: Master Quiz; Twisted Metal: Head On; Everybody’s Golf and Ape Escape: On the Loose.
