SEGA has sliced the prices of some of their old PSP games on PSN permanently. Here’s a list of the games with their original and slashed prices:
Crazy Taxi: Fare Wars:
Sonic Rivals 2:
Super Monkey Ball Adventure:
Valkyria Chronicles II:
These price cuts do not apply to Europe (at least not yet). Because these games are being sold on PSN they can also be played on the Playstation Vita.

Much like the Sega Mega Drive Ultimate Collection vinyl album given with pre-orders of the game in Australia, Sega is releasing a six-track album to commemorate the release of Dreamcast Collection in Australia, France and Spain.
Australians can get in on picking up this album if they pre-order the game at JB Hi-Fi, though Sega stresses supplies are very limited. It’s currently unknown which retailers will be offering these albums in Europe.
So what’s on the album? On side A, you’ll find “Open Your Heart” from Sonic Adventure and “Option Remix 2002” from Space Channel 5: Part 2. Side B is nothing but crazy money, containing “Radical Sabbatical”, “Flinch”, and “Get Out” from Crazy Taxi.
Say what you will about the collection of games itself, but this is a pretty nifty pickup for Sega and music enthusiasts.
