New Bronze PSP Bundle for Japan

bronze PSPEveryone loves color, therefore it is only smart for a game company to release their console in many different colors. Nothing about the console that changes; same hardware but all of a sudden it seems a lot more appealing.

Sony knows that changing colors sell, as can bee seen by the multiple different PSP bundles they offer to consumers in Japan and the U.S. 

You’ve got the regular black PSP, the silver Daxter bundle, the white Star Wars bundle, the upcoming red God of War bundle, the grey Final Fantasy Crisis Core bundle etc…Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has announced a new PSP bundle featuring a bronze-colored system.

According to Gamasutra, the PSP "Matte Bronze Value Pack" will become available for a limited time on April 24th for ¥23,800 ($228), and will include a “Matte Bronze” PSP, a pouch, a hand strap, a cloth, a 32MB Memory Stick Duo, and a D Terminal AV cable. SCEJ says this bundle is aimed at those who want to play PSP content on their televisions.

"Finally, SCEJ also announced it would launch a ‘Cradle’ for slim-and-light PSPs in Japan on April 24th. Retailing for ¥4,800 ($46), the cradle allows entertainment content on the PSP to be controlled with a remote, in addition to charging the battery. SCEJ will also sell a cradle bundled with a D Terminal AV Cable (including tax). A set of ‘Cradle & D Terminal AV Cable’ for ¥6,500 ($62)."

So this is a bundle aimed at those who want to play PSP content on their televisions. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? Are they making the PSP less and less of a handheld system and pushing it to be a second PS2-like game system?
