Radica goes black◊™ for PSP

Radica Games announced today that it will launch a new range of unofficial accessories for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) under the new brand name - black◊TM.

Radica examined lifestyle habits and behavioural patterns of PSP owners, to create black◊TM, the first range of mobile entertainment accessories that compliment the PSP's quality and styling and enhance movie, games and music experiences.

The new range of black◊TM entertainment and storage accessories include:

black◊TM HOME STATION for PSP: The Home Station makes the PSP the ultimate entertainment system in your home, on your desk - wherever, whenever. Simply insert the PSP into the Home Station cradle to enjoy movies with high quality sound whilst the battery is being re-charged. The Home Station includes USB connection, works with an AC adapter or batteries and folds up for storage.

black◊TM CAR STATION for PSP: Watching movies or playing games on the go? The Car Station features a car adaptor with a unique cable management system that fits neatly into the car's cup holder. A separate tilt and swivel suction mount enables the user to stick the PSP onto the cup-holder adaptor, a window or any other flat surface - so you can watch PSP entertainment any which way you like.

black◊TM POWER UP PORTABLE POWER MANAGEMENT for PSP: Every PSP owner needs a battery back-up, and this stylish Battery Pack will treble the PSP battery life and contains an auto shut-off feature to keep the PSP safe from overcharging. The charging cable winds into the battery system when not in use and the clip enables it to be hung from a belt loop or case.

black◊TM PROTEK2 CASE for PSP: The number one 'must buy' product for the PSP is the custom made Protek2 Case with a transparent Perspex window to see the music track being played when the PSP idles in the bag or pocket. The case provides storage for one UMD and four Memory Stick Duos and features protected open sockets so users can use their earphones whilst the PSP is still in the case.

black◊TM COMFORT GRIPS for PSP: Grip is everything for the gaming purist. The Comfort Grips provide users with pop-out grips providing the user with the ultimate in ergonomic handling. When not in use, the PSP Comfort Grip system acts as a storage device to protect the PSP and contains a stand to view movies in comfort

black◊TM UMD GAME CASE for PSP: The perfect accessory to store up to four PSP UMDs. Featuring clear windows to view the UMDs in the case and a spring loaded ejection system for easy access.

black◊TM FORM FIT CASE: New portable; new skin. The super-tight Skin-Case provides a second skin to protect the PSP from every day wear and tear, whilst allowing easy-touch access to all buttons . A protective lens clips over the PSP screen to safeguard from scratches and eliminate glare.

Rob Goodchild, Brand Manager of black◊TM commented, "The range of black◊TM accessories have been carefully designed to provide stylish and innovative products for all PSP owners. " Goodchild continued, "black◊TM is the first and only high quality range of accessories to truly echo the style, design and sophistication of the PSP, providing complete protection whilst allowing full access to gaming, music and visual entertainment."

The newly patented 'black◊TM' catalogue for the Sony PSP will debut in September to coincide with the European launch of Sony's PlayStation Portable (PSP), the worlds leading hand-held entertainment system.
