Finally, an official version of what retailers have been offering since the get-go: a Playstation Portable bundled with a 1GB memory card.

The Giga Pack will cost £215 - the standard Value Pack PSP costs a mere £180 - but comes with the Sony-branded ‘gigacard’, a spare battery to double playing time on Burnout Legends and a wee stand for movie viewing without the wrist-ache.

All of which beggars the question: are you going to buy this official pack or succumb to the entrepreneurial wiles of your local games shop and its undercutting bundles? We recommend shopping around. If the store's also bundling GTA: Liberty City Stories - which promises to be eye-bleedingly good - take the deal.

There's more on the world’s most desirable gadget and the various ways you can get it on the PSP's UK website.

The Giga Pack goes on sale from 21st November.
