God of War: Chains of Olympus and Patapon are among the ten new PlayStation Portable titles joining Sony’s Greatest Hits lineup next month.
Ten new titles receive special packaging and a special US$19.99 retail price come April 5th as part of Sony’s 2009 PSP push. God of War, Patapon, and SOCOM: Tactical Strike are the only first-party titles to make the cut. Ubisoft represents with Tom Clancy’s Advanced Warfighter 2 and Rainbow Six Vegas, while EA brings Fight Night Round 3 and Medal of Honour Heroes 2 to the party. Finally we have Sonic Rivals 2 from Sega, THQ’s SpongeBob Squarepants: The Yellow Avenger, and Mortal Kombat: Unchained by way of Midway.
It bares noting that of the ten tiles here, only God of War and SOCOM currently retail for over $19.99 anyway, so eight of these titles are simply getting new packaging. Still, its the thought that counts, and I certainly won’t scoff at the chance to get Chains of Olympus for half of the $39.99 GameStop is still charging for it.
