Hello everybody and welcome once again to the PlayStation Store Special Offers Update. A couple of weeks ago we launched the PSP Power Sale, bringing you some great PSP games at discounted prices.
Well now its time for the second part of the PSP Power Sale, but what does that mean? New games!! That's what.
Now there is one game on this list I have to give a special shout out too and that is the eagerly awaited Persona 3 Portable. We have been waiting for this game release for quite a bit in the EU and because of that, the publishers have agreed to a 2 week discount for this game on the day of release. So don't miss out and get your copy now to take advantage of this discount.
We also have some other great games available and some of you will notice that games you requested last week on the blog are now in the sale. So don't be scared to make a request and get involved.
Anyway that's enough chit-chat for now, see the content available below for you from the 7th September to the 21st September. Enjoy!
