Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that the first in its "Greatest Hits" budget-priced series for the PSP is now available, following on from previous schemes in North America for the PlayStation 2, and allowing a sub-$20 price point for some of the more notable older first-party PSP games. According to Sony, PSP owners can pick up five of the most popular first-party titles -- Ape Escape: On the Loose, ATV Offroad Fury: Blazin' Trails, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee, Twisted Metal: Head On, or Wipeout Pure for a $19.99 MSRP in the American market. Sony also announced that, later this year, additional third-party games will go "Greatest Hits," including Lumines, Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition, Star Wars Battlefront II, Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix, and Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade. "The PSP system has truly arrived with the launch of its 'Greatest Hits' collection, which we expect will drive consumer interest in the device and strong hardware growth, just as the 'Greatest Hits' programs have done for other PlayStation platforms," said Peter Dille, senior vice president, marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America. He also commented, in a seasonal fashion: "Summer is typically the industry's lightest season for new titles, so releasing the PSP 'Greatest Hits' now benefits many consumers who find themselves with more downtime, whether they're on a plane headed on a vacation or simply trying to beat the heat at home."
