News: A "new" GTA and Midnight Club 3 join the ranks of PSP launch titles.
Rockstar has announced two big titles due for release "around the PSP launch." Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition and a "new" Grand Theft Auto title will mark Rockstar's entry into the PSP launch lineup.
Both titles are being developed by Rockstar with help from Rockstar North for GTA and Rockstar San Diego for Midnight Club 3. Rockstar has said the new Grand Theft Auto game will take place in Liberty City but no other details were revealed.
"Bringing two of our most successful game franchises to this thrilling new platform not only gives us an opportunity to create a new dimension for these already extraordinary series but also allows us to begin to explore the full potential of the PSP handheld system," said Sam Houser, President of Rockstar Games. "Sony's extremely impressive technology has allowed Rockstar Leeds to do more on a handheld machine than we could have ever imagined. We are very excited for gamers to experience these two genre-defining franchises in a fashion that could have never before been possible on a portable system."
