EA ‘Entertainment Pack’ lands later this month

SCEA have announced a new bundle for the soon-to-be-redundant PlayStation Portable.

The pack, which will retail for $159.99, includes a PSP-3000, a 2GB memory card, Madden NFL 12 and… a two year-old racing game. Yes, Need For Speed: Shift will be in the package, but I guess we can’t be too hard on EA as technically it is the latest NFS game on the platform, after they elected to not release ‘Hot Pursuit‘, ‘Shift 2‘ or ‘The Run‘.

Out on August 30th, it’ll launch day and date alongside the standalone version of Madden. With the PS Vita to launch in only a few months time, this’ll be one of the last opportunities for Sony to shift (sorry, couldn’t resist!) some units.

Personally, I think this could sell quite well at Christmas, with parents looking to buy their kids a console with sports and racing games at a reasonable price. In Europe, I could definitely see a similar package but with FIFA.
