Best Upcoming PSP Games

The long list of PSP games helps make the handheld platform one of the most popular options currently on the market. However, some of the new PSP games heading for the market may actually boost the popularity of the gaming platform.

What titles are the hottest? Which are available on the market now and which are coming out soon? Here are some of the most interesting PSP games currently on the market and in development.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep - Kingdom hearts was an enormous hit when it debuted years ago. While the sequel did much to increase the franchise's popularity, the prequel currently in development by Square Enix has enormous potential. Kingdom Hearts - Birth by Sleep takes gamers into the world of Kingdom Hearts before the world-shattering events of the first game, for an interesting take on all the favorite characters.

Midnight Club: LA Remix - This is possibly one of the most anticipated upcoming PSP games. However, if you don't like stiff competition, stay away from this game. The new AI drivers are all enormously skilled; more skilled than many players, it seems. Combined with the long list of available cars, the enormous enjoyment of customizing your car and the incredible design of the racetrack around the city and you have a killer PSP title that will be an excellent gift for any gamer with a need for speed.

God of War: Chains of Olympus - The God of War PSP games have long been known as a premium franchise for the adult gamer looking for more than a little hack-n-slash excitement. The new installation finds Kratos working for the gods of Mount Olympus and killing things along the way, much to the enjoyment of gamers. This installation doesn't take the game story any further, but, in the spirit of the new Kingdom Hearts game, brings gamers to an earlier time in the game's storyline.

Of course, there are many other PSP games currently on the market and about to hit the market. Square Enix has released teaser trailers for their upcoming Final Fantasy PSP game, while Prinny, LocoRoco2, Star Wars the Force Unleashed, Need for Speed Undercover, N+ and Patapon are also some of the more popular PSP games currently on the market.

With the wide selection of PSP games, movies, downloadable content and other features, the PSP platform offers much for the would-be gamer and makes one of the hottest gifts for the year. If the adult themed PSP games are not to your tastes, consider any of the younger, cuter PSP games, such as LocoRoco2 (called the cutest game ever for the PSP by players). There are, of course, hundreds of other titles available in all different flavors for all different types of gamers.
