Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron PSP Debut Trailer.

A great debut trailer for the PSP of the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron has finally surfaced online with only a few more weeks before it’s release (November 3rd). The trailer looks pretty good, but in the entire 30 seconds, they don’t actually show any gameplay, which was kind of disappointing.

Anyway check it out below and let me know what you think.

Here is a couple excerps from Kotaku’s take on Battlefront: Elite Squadron.

“I’m glad Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron’s space-to-ground transitions made it into the multiplayer –- there was some initial confusion about whether or not the PSP Infrastructure could handle it.

But the final answer is yes. Yes, Elite Squadron can handle all 16 players leaping from space combat to ground battles and back again almost at once. Yes, it can get hectic and confusing. And yes, you will totally love it.

What Needs Improvement?
Hey! I Didn’t Want To Go Planetside! If you’re flying a spacecraft, the game sometimes takes liberties with your locations. For example, you can hop in an X-Wing on the ground and try to jet up to space by flying skyward and pressing up on the D-pad – but the game doesn’t think you should be up there quite yet and so it either doesn’t send you right away, or it doesn’t send you at all. This same thing happens in the space-side of levels as well, which gets really annoying if you’re flying close to the planet while trying to shoot somebody and the game decides to send you planetside even though you didn’t press the D-pad

What Should Stay The Same?
Space Combat: Loved it. Loved it so much, I actually started to avoid going planetside.

It’s What Multiplayer Was Meant To Be: If you’ve ever gotten together a bunch of gamers to take a crack at any multiplayer mode, you know when things are going well. People enjoy themselves and really get into the rivalries. When a big event happens – like a command ship exploding – there’s a cry from the victim team and a cheer from the aggressor team. When somebody morphs into a Jedi at a random point in battle (depending on how well you’re doing), there are squawks of disbelief to see a lightsaber on the field. And when the match ends, there’s a collective groan because it felt like it ended too soon.

Final Thoughts
I’m buying it. I really hope my PSP-owning friends do, too, so I can gun them down in space”

    i totally agree with rawdog on both accounts. psp battlefront is cutting out the hardcore consol fans and weakening the series. and if lucas arts is going to announce battle front 3 it wont be until after the elite squadron sales plateau, they dont want to hurt their sales. but still battlefront 3 has been long overdue i say lucas arts should drop everything and focus on 2 things; star wars battlefront 3 and knights of the old republic….imo, everything else can wait

  3. battlefront3man says:

    peaze bring out battlefront3 soon!!!!!

    Wait, I just realized something. Since Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron is coming out November 1st it wouldn’t be very smart to announce a big game shortly before one of their titles would be released. So that may be a reason why they haven’t announced Secret Project X or Y yet.

  5. RAWDOG 262 says:

    Personally, I do not think that LucasArts is being very smart on releasing Battlefront games for the PSP and now DS. If you see the web doc trailer for Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron she says “Battlefront is one of our most successful star wars games and now were bringing it to you on your PSP.” It isn’t really a smart decision to cut your hardcore fans from your actual product. If Pandemic’s Project X or Y is Battlefront 3 it become one of the most popular games ever made.

    I agree with Mr. Admin on this one, although I don’t really care about Elite Squadron altogether.
