Customer ReviewsProper Review for MGS:PW Entertainment Pack!!!
Ok, there are three (3) reviews before this one and none of them talk about the Pack. So I will do my best here. First of all, the real color of the PSP is not the green represented in the picture. The picture shows a light green PSP and it's actually more a DARK Green! It looks great. IMO it looks a lot better than the picture in the box. Soon I will upload pictures! Now, nobody seems to care about this next issue I found: THE PACK INCLUDES Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker without the UMD CASE, I mean, THERE ARE NO BOX COVER ART in this package. For me it's a disadvantage 'cause I like the box art design. So, if having the UMD Case w/ Art is a priority, you should avoid this one and buy a Core Pack PSP and the Peace Walker game separately. I just learned to live w/ the pain... =( This PSP Entertainment Pack also includes a Memory Stick Pro Duo of 2GB (you'll need more than 2GB if you want to put videos and music on - Peace Walker has the option to install game data to faster the loading times and it takes about 800MB) and two vouchers: one is for downloading items for the game (stealth gun and a FOX T-Shirt) and another to download "2012" Movie at Wide Screen Standard Resolution - 480p (which can be transferred to the PS3 if you connect your PSP via USB once you downloaded the movie - I don't know if you can put the code into the PSN in the PS3, I guess you can).
I have to say that the GameStop exclusive Big Boss Pack is a much better deal than this one since it includes a 4GB Memory Stick Pro Duo (not just 2GB) and a Peace Walker Branded accessory kit (which includes a carrying case for the PSP) for the same price. I didn't get that one because I don't like the camouflaged PSP. And after seeing the real green color of the Peace Walker Entertainment Pack I'm more than happy w/ it and I don't regret it!
The Peace Walker game by itself makes the PSP a greater system. It's really a Metal Gear Solid Game! It continues the story after Portable Ops events but it's more a sequel of Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (which is great). The Dialogues, the scenes, the story... everything is there, in a pocket size! Peace Walker uses the RPG elements introduced in Portable Ops but expand them a lot more. If you like MGS series, you'll love this one. If you don't like / know MGS Series, YOU SHOULD TRY this one. It's really good! Personally, I'm having more fun than MGS4 game (I don't mean METAL GEAR ONLINE). The only weak point of the game is the Missing INFRASTRUCTURE mode for ONLINE Co-op / Vs. It's just Ad-Hoc. I have heard that you can link your PSP trough a PS3 via Ad-Hoc Party mode and play online, but I don't know how to do it and I haven't seen it in the instruction manual yet! Ad-Hoc Co-op is great: smooth and straight forward. You don't need a lot of tech knowledge to host/join a game. It's just great! 4/5 for the game (-1 for the missing infrastructure mode - I really miss it, even Portable Ops has it).
The other details that is not covered are the one for the PSP 3000, which you can find in others reviews around the web. This Pack doesn't include a new PSP, it's just a Green Colored PSP 3000.
I recommend this Pack for those who don't like the Camouflaged PACK (or don't like to buy in GameStop).I really like the color and for now (Amazon.com always lowers the games' prices), you can save about 20 bucks (PSP core-$170, MGS:PW-$39.99, and MemStick 2GB- about $7? = ~$217! I didn't count the "2012" movie because, honestly, who thinks this movie is a deal maker?! I mean, the movie is not that good and it's not HD either! So I'm seeing it as a welcome addition more than a deal maker! ;) I hope this helps! I will update the review if I find any other relevant thing!
An Excellent PSP Bundle
If you are considering a PSP, this package is definitely a great value. Included is the PSP in "Spirited Green," a UMD copy of "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker" with downloadable content, a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo, and a digital download copy of the movie "2012."
PSP 3000 (Spirited Green):
Hardware-wise, this is the standard "PSP-3000" with a "Spirited Green" colored shell. The color of the PSP pictured on Amazon.com is not completely accurate; while the color is green, it is a darker green that shown, which in my opinion is perhaps the best color finish released so far for the PSP. The color could almost be described as a dark green "metallic fleck." The finish is glossy, and will attract finger prints. As someone who has not owned a PSP before, I have to say that the capabilities of this machine are impressive. Internet access, music and video playback, Skype, connectivity with your PS3 system, and a great selection of games.
UMD Copy of "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker":
I have been a fan of the Metal Gear Solid series since Metal Gear: Solid for the original PlayStation. Although I have not played the previous MGS titles for the PSP, this game is what made my decision to purchase a PSP. The game is very entertaining, and feels like a true compliment to the PS/PS2/PS3 games. Recruiting soldiers with the "Fulton Recovery System" is very interesting. The controls for the game required some acclimation, but having never even used a PSP before I expected that. Within a short time, the controls felt intuitive and useable, although trying to aim, move, and fire can take some practice. The game is packaged in a simple cardboard sleeve; you don't receive the complete retail packaging, which just cuts down on some unnecessary waste. The downloadable content included is a special "Fox" unit tee-shirt, and a special Stealth Gun. The Fox tee-shirt is a fluff item; it changes your appearance while still providing the same cammo value as the basic fatigues. The Stealth Gun is handy when playing with others, as you can shoot your team-mates to make them stealthy.
2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo:
Your standard 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo. Pretty much required to play "MGS: Peace Walker" since the game will install data to the card to improve the game's load times, as well as store save game data. This will use about 850MB of the card. Its inclusion in this package is nice as it ensures that you have everything you need to start playing right out of the box, but as your game library grows or if you plan to download movies, you will want to purchase a larger card.
Digital Download Copy of "2012":
I haven't watched the movie yet, but I have downloaded it onto my PC. This is a nice feature of the PSP; you can download movies purchased for use on the PSP to your PC Computer using Sony's "Media Go" program which can be downloaded from the official Sony Website. Once you download the movie(s) to your computer, you can attach your PSP to your PC via a USB 2.0 Cable and transfer the movie. This gives you a copy on your PC to watch (and save as a back-up) and a copy on your PSP to watch and enjoy. The movie itself is approx. 2.5GB, so if you plan to watch it on your new PSP, you will need to purchase a larger Memory Stick Pro Duo than comes with the kit.
In all, the "Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker Entertainment Package" is a great value if you are interesting in jumping into the PSP handheld gaming library.
I finally got around to buying a PSP and I decided to start with this bundle. I cannot believe I waited this many years to get this system. This system is amazing the wifi picks up great and downloads with ease. There are so many classic good games for the PSP that can be had cheap now for under $10. If you dont have a PSP and have thought about getting one I would highly recommend it. I already own 4 other games besides metal gear solid that came with the bundle and they were only $30 from amazon. This bundle is a great way to start out with a PSP since it includes metal gear peace walker a memory card and the console. I would not recommend this bundle however for younger players because this game will probably be to difficult for them. If you are older however this bundle is a great way to start out.

This is best christmas gifts idea.
