2 For £15 On Handheld Games (inc. GTA: Chinatown Wars, LittleBigPlanet PSP & Monster Hunter Freedom Unite) @ Asda [PSP/DS Games]

Asda are kicking arse at the moment with their 2 for £15 deal on a number of PSP and DS games, with some particular highlights including LittleBigPlanet PSP, GTA Chinatown Wars, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, LEGO Rock Band, Marvel Ultimate Alliance and Resistance: Retribution.

Hell, I'd happily shell out £30 for the first three alone! Hit the link below to find out more.

GTA on the PSP has previously suffered with the lack of a second analogue stick, but that problem has been eradicated this time thanks to the classic top-down point of view of the classic PS1 days of the series, that has been brought back in improved form.

There don’t seem to be any plans to bring this one to PS2 like they did with previous PSP GTAs, probably because there wouldn’t be any particular control advantage this time.

It’s the first time in the series that you play as a young Triad member, which makes a change adding a Far Eastern flavour to the game. You’re back in Liberty City, which by now should feel like a second home. There’s a typically tight script from Rockstar and an adventure that’ll last ages like we’ve come to expect from the series.

The game is less than a year old on the PSP but has been out longer on the Nintendo DS. They’re pretty much the same game, with similar missions (with a few extra too) and story, but obviously the touch-screen elements have been changed to button presses. The graphics have been slightly improved and adapted for the wider screen since the DS release too. It’s maybe not enough to warrant buying again if you have the original, but tempting at this price.

This is a great deal if you’ve been sitting on the fence about it. Look at it this way; even if you don’t like it you can probably sell it or trade it in and probably make a profit at this price.

As for LittleBigPlanet, well it's everything you loved about  the original game condensed down onto an ultra portable handheld format and boy is it good!
