PSP should launch this Thursday

This Thursday should see the launch of the much anticipated PlayStation Portable (PSP) games system in North America. Initially, the PSP will have 24 games titles available, with more to come. This is something like 5 times the normal range of titles available to a system on launch. The PSP will be sold for $250, and games start at around $40 each. Many PSP comes with bundles, containing bits and pieces that you might not need.

Sony is backing up its portable gadget with a strong group of its own action titles, all priced at $40. Ape Escape: On the Loose, an action game that challenges players to capture monkeys in various situations, looks notably better than the original PlayStation title. Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is a surprisingly deep dungeon crawler that throws in magic and quests. Twisted Metal: Head-On adds a chapter to the car-combat series, with 16 environments, beautiful graphics and local as well as Internet multiplayer capability.

Usually I would only try to get the latest stuff when it comes to computers but this one time I'm getting a PSP as soon as it becomes available, that is, if stores still have some when I get there.

places like Toys R Us, Circuit City, Best Buy, and CompUSA are having first-come-first--serve... Have you noticed that Memory stick duos (particularly the 1GB models) are Out of stock at most places?
