Gitaroo Man is headed for PSP, according to Sony's Japanese retail site. Known as Gitaroo-Man Live!, this return is heading for Japanese stores on May 25.
The handheld installment will update the overlooked original. Released in 2000, it was a fantastically insane rhythm-action title that centered on a guitar-playing superhero, U1, who wailed his way through incredibly funky tunes in battles with absurd enemies. It never achieved worthy popularity, but it's still remembered fondly, even after
This May, the PSP will get yet another racer in the form of Race Driver 2006. But while it's entering a crowded field with a generic-sounding title, Race Driver looks like a promising speedway simulator.
Developed by the minds behind the TOCA series, Race Driver will feature 60-plus racing circuits, more than 50 cars and wireless multiplayer for up to 10 drivers. It looks great in motion, too, as you'll see in the official trailer Codemasters sent us; the visuals look sharp and the action
Some of you might remember the 2002 blow-up between Dave Mirra and Acclaim, when the BMX stunt rider sued the publisher for dragging his name into colossal crapfest BMX XXX. The controversy apparently didn't sour Mirra on games entirely, though, as he's starting over with a new title and a new
Before the hype machine for September's CG flick Open Season can even begin, Ubisoft is already letting people know about their video game adaptation. In the grand tradition of Ice Age, Madagascar and Over the Hedge, you control grotesquely disproportioned animals as they engage in wacky hijinx. But this time you're wild animals looking to give inept hunters a hard time. This from Ubisoft Montreal - yes, the same Ubisoft Montreal that creates the consistently fantastic Splinter Cell stealth

A PSP redesign is in the works by Sony, which will include a built-in hard drive and no slot for UMDs. Planned as an update for the successful handheld, the new PSP is due to appear sometime in the next three years, according to shacknews.com.
Although a huge range of films have been released on Sony's proprietary Universal Media Disc format, actual sales have failed to impress. Even so, leaving the UMD behind would cause problems for backwards compatibility for the new PSP, although with Sony
Publisher Activision has announced that last year's go-anywhere, kill-anything Wild West shooter GUN is sauntering its way to PSP this fall in the shape of GUN Showdown.
For the uninitiated, GUN tells the decidedly un-PC story of Colton White, a hunter-turned-gunslinger out for revenge after his dad is killed. A sort of Grand Theft Equine, GUN lets players blow apart cowboy and Apache heads, steal horses and explore a decent-sized Western landscape as they take on missions and hunt for
Mining the past for hits must be working out well for Capcom lately, as the publisher has announced plans for a third collection. Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded will bring 15 old arcade games to the PSP, some of which were featured on the earlier Capcom Classics Collection for consoles.
Reloaded will feature a few "new" titles that haven't appeared in previous collections, though, including the environmentally conscious shooter Eco Fighters and the medieval-fantasy brawlers Knights of the
