Honestly, I kind of hate the way game companies categorize women.
Honestly, I kind of hate the way game companies categorize women. Take this new lilac-colored PSP bundle for example. According to Sony, it's being released later this year "as part of a new focus on expanding the PSP market to female gamers" and is coming packed with the latest installment of the Hannah Montana PSP game. Okay, so what's so wrong with Hannah Montana? Nothing really, except for the fact that Sony is also releasing Assassins Creed as a bundle, as well as bringing Little Big Planet to the PSP later this year. So why the Hannah Montana bundle? Oh right, cause women must not like to play the same games guys do.
For me to drop my $200 dollars on a game bundle, you better be packing my PSP with LBP, or even the recently announced Rock Band Unplugged. I know gamers are still going to pick up this bundle just for the console color, but come summertime, I'm betting on seeing quite a few copies of Hannah Montana for the PSP in the bargain bin, causing "women" to spend more money on a game they'll actually play. Am I the only one frustrated with this bundle announcement?
