Madden ’09 bundle coming to PSP

SCEA released a press release today concerning the upcoming Madden NFL 09 PSP limited edition bundle pack that is scheduled to hit stores in August. The PSP Slim itself is colored what SCEA dubs “Metallic Blue,” and will come with a few extra bonuses that they hope will entice us all. In addition to the game itself, the pack will include a UMD of NFL: In Just One Play from Warner Bros., a PLAYSTATION Network voucher that allows you to download the rhythm game Beats, and a 1GB memory stick to store media to your heart’s content.

Scott A. Steinberg, vice president of product marketing at SCEA thinks this bundle was a natural move for them, “Sports games are one of the most popular types of games among PSP owners, and it was only natural to make our next PSP Entertainment Pack a sports-themed bundle. PSP continues to have great momentum in the marketplace. We expect that the Madden NFL 09 PSP Entertainment Pack will capitalize on this momentum and strengthen PlayStation’s presence in the sports genre.”

This bundle goes on sale August 12 for $200. The Metallic Blue PSP will only be available in North America.
