With just one week to go until the launch of the PSP on Thursday, 1st September, Codemasters today reveals new movies of its launch titles, Colin McRae Rally 2005 Plus and TOCA Race Driver 2, available online from www.codemasters.co.uk/psp.
Ahead of the games' arrival, Codemasters also announces a unique 'custom soundtrack' feature in TOCA Race Driver 2. An absolute first for any PSP title, this audio option lets you place your choice of music on a portable Memory Stick and then customise your own soundtracks to play while you're tearing up the circuits.
All you need to create your own in-game play list is the Exact Audio Copy utility, which will be available as a free download from www.codemasters.co.uk/downloads (in Upgrades) from PSP launch day.
Just download the Exact Audio Copy to a PC, hook up your PSP, with a Memory Stick Duo, via USB and put your own audio CD in the PC's CD drive.
In no time at all, you'll have your choice of music on the Memory Stick Duo. Now, next time you're ready to take to the circuits in the game, just enable the Custom Soundtrack feature from the game's options and race while listening to your own compilation of music!
In addition to the custom soundtrack feature, TOCA Race Driver 2 also delivers another first in PSP gaming. Exploiting the PSP's Wireless networking ability to the full, TOCA Race Driver 2 enables up to 12 players to fight it out on the track, more than any other game to date. It'll feel like a real race meet you hear all the screams of anguish or triumph as you race face-to-face in some of the world's greatest race cars.
Prepare to go on-road, off-road, anywhere when both TOCA Race Driver 2 and Colin McRae Rally 2005 Plus launch alongside the PSP console on September 1st.
Get on the starting grid with new movies for both games now available online at www.codemasters.co.uk/psp
