PSUni writes: "While hardware sales have been disappointing, the PSP has quietly had a pretty good year on the software front. We’ve already had a chance to play SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3, ModNation Racers, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Persona 3, Valkyria Chronicles II, and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep.
Of course, the announcement of God of War: Ghost of Sparta in May quickly catapulted it into one of the year’s most anticipated releases, regardless of platform. After so many quality releases, there we have every reason to be excited by the prospect of a new game in the series. By releasing the game smack-dab in the middle of the holiday release blitz, Sony is saying that the game can stand as the premier PSP game this year."
