August 15, 2007 - As SEGA revs its engines and prepares the release of [Register or Login to view links] for consoles, it doesn't intend to leave the PSP in the dust. Scheduled for release this fall to coincide with the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC releases, the PSP version promises to bring all of the dirt-tossing gameplay to Sony's handheld.
Details on the game are rather scarce, though we do know that it'll feature 34 different cars and 16 tracks that span six different environments. Multiplayer will be available for play over the Internet via Infrastructure support for up to four players, while Ad-Hoc play will take care of local games. And for friends who don't have the game, Game Sharing will allow two players to compete.
While SEGA Driving Studio is handling the PS3, 360 and PC versions of SEGA Rally Revo, the PSP game is being developed by Bugbear Entertainment, the folks who've brought us the fun on wheels franchise that we like to call FlatOut. The studio has done a great job at pushing the PlayStation 2 to its limits in the past with an entirely physics-based racing world, so we can't wait to see how it's pushing the PSP this time out.
We'll have to wait until we get our hands on the game for further details, but its release is right around the corner. Hopefully Bugbear and SEGA can put a set of high-performance tires on the system and wind up with a podium finish.
