Well you better be faster as THQ has announced that WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 will again be on all major consoles and handhelds. No further details were given but last year’s edition added some major improvements and new content over the 2006 version, which was plagued by some of the most painful load times on PSP.

Galaxy's EndGalaxy’s End: Although it might be a bit early for the game to be here as its developers Tiki Games still currently looking for a publisher, a Real-Time Strategy game on the PSP always sounds like a cool idea to me.

Riviera: The Promised LandRivieria: The Promised Land: This isn’t a new game but if online retailers GameStop and EBgames products listing are to be believed, Atlus is bringing this remake of a classic handheld only RPG to the PSP this April.
