Manna from heaven for PSP gamers! (The legit ones, at least).
Console games, unlike PC games in India, are still priced fairly out of reach of the non-pirate gamer. While many of the current-gen PC games are published in India for ridiculously low prices when compared to their price in the countries of their origin, console games tend to be similarly priced to their cousins abroad. All that is set to change with E-xpress India deciding to publish eighteen PSP games for Rs. 699 under the title PSP Essentials.
The titles are mostly animation movie spin-offs or aimed at kids in general, although there are a few exceptions (Tom Clancy’s EndWar, Tomb Raider Legends and the like). It is a small step, but we are all hoping that more publishers in India aim for the rights to publish better and bigger games in India for gentler prices!
