Me Thinks the Handheld Market is Different

So while it's great that SCEA is putting out some games for the PSP that are actually afordable, the metric seems weak at best. This means that the only $20 games you'll see are those that sold well originally at the $40+ price point. The handheld market really is different than the console market, so I suspect you're not going to see all that many bargain titles for the PSP. Bummer.

SCEA launches budget PSP software range // GamesIndustry.biz
Retailing for US$19.99, the first selection of games to hit retail in North America include Ape Escape: On the Loose, ATV Off-Road Fury: Blazin' Trails, Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee, Twisted Metal: Head On and Wipeout Pure.

Games eligible for inclusion in the Greatest Hits Collection must have been on the market for at least nine months, and sold in excess of 250,000 units.
