Five Games That Need to Come to Sony's PlayStation Portable

300°
296w ago - With the announcement of some stellar titles arriving on the PSP this year, it would appear that owners of the device finally have a good reason to charge it up again and book a long train journey.

With the idea of creating a cutesy LBP level during rush hour headaches-ville and ripping through Motorstorm's snowy, mountainous terrain while sitting on the toilet firmly processed in our brains, it seems only fitting that we discuss which games should also be brought to the device.

1. Dead Space

Having just been revealed as an upcoming release for the Nintendo Wii, Dead Space is clearly a franchise that EA are taking very seriously. Its blend of horror and action was well received when it was originally released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2008. The sound was also remarkably well implemented, helping it to be one of the most talked about games of the year.

Its eerie music, snarling monsters lurking around every corner and random spaceship noise had me on the edge of my seat.

Irem Reveals Details of 'Irem Plaza' PlayStation Home Lounge

200°
296w ago - Irem became the latest publisher to join up with Sony's Home virtual world as it offered today a first look at its very own virtual lounge.

Similar to Bandai Namco's lounge, the Irem space is meant to be a general area for the publisher rather than for a particular game.

To quote: Named "Irem Plaza" ("Irem Hiroba" in Japanese), this lounge has been designed in image of a Japanese festival. Visitors will find the types of sights and activities one might find at a Japanese-style carnival, including booths and areas for food, shooting, fireworks, and Bon Odori.

The lounge will also offer a variety of items, including traditional "yutaka" festival clothing for player avatars and R-9 figures from R-Type as furniture items.

The lounge promises four areas from the start:

Observation Deck
Allows visitors to look out onto the beach and see fireworks and the setting sun

Message Board
Details lounge events and information about new stalls

Night Stalls
Players can play mini games and purchase items here

Yagura (Watch Tower)
This is the central area of the lounge where players will gather

The lounge will also eventually be updated with a special game lounge...
