Sony has announced in the PlayStation Blog US a new PlayStation Portable 3000 bundle that will include a black PSP-3000 and a Madden NFL 11 UMD for $169.99. The bundle will be hitting August 10, the same day as the wide release of Madden NFL 11. Considering the price of a PSP-3000 itself is $169.99, this bundle is a no brainer since you get a free game to go with the handheld.
The interesting part of this deal is that Sony’s not offering a PSP Go! Madden bundle, but rather an older model of the Sony handheld. This does not bode well for the UMD-less PSP SKU.
Let us know what you think.
