'Scarface' Coming to PSP, Cancelled on Xbox 360 - Screens

Vivendi announced Scarface: Power. Money. Respect for the PSP, a mix of turn based strategy and real time combat, set in 1983 Miami. Wannabe gangstas can rival it out in the story-driven single-player mode or play online through the wireless multiplayer mode with up to 3 other players. Unfortunately there is also bad news as it seems Scarface: The World is Yours for X360 has been cancelled and is now only scheduled for PS2, Xbox and PC.

Inspired by the epic film's original storyline, Scarface: Money. Power. Respect. will thrust gamers into a deep and engaging strategy game as Tony Montana, where the goal is to battle and defeat competing drug cartels and conquer Miami turf-by-turf, eventually becoming the one-and-only Kingpin of the city.

"Scarface: Money. Power. Respect. will challenge players to strategically direct Tony Montana's legendary and meteoric ascent to the biggest drug kingpin in Miami," said Cindy Cook, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer for Vivendi Games. "Using the PSP platform's advanced functionality and multiplayer capabilities, Scarface: Money. Power. Respect. will deliver a unique and challenging strategy experience combined with real-time combat that is fully immersed in the authentic world of the film."

Featuring both single- and multi-player modes, Scarface: Money. Power. Respect. will challenge players to make critical strategic decisions to rise from humble beginnings to directing an army of henchmen and hired gunmen through detailed scenarios of conquest and domination.

In the story-based single-player mode, gamers will complete a series of missions based on scenes from the original movie to conquer "turfs" in Miami. Players will need to direct large-scale citywide strategic commands to complete their conquest as well as direct street-level real-time combat. The game will challenge gamers to handle larger territory, additional adversaries and new profit-making opportunities through increased drug trafficking.

The wireless multi-player mode pits up-to-four gamers playing as criminal cartels in a race to make money and conquer turf. The multi-player battle begins with a "Land Grab," where each cartel lays claim to their share of Miami. Through turn-based strategy showdowns and real-time combat, each player will manage the production and distribution of drugs while building up enough cartel strength to overpower adversaries, take their turf and eventually, rule the Miami drug scene.

Scarface: Money. Power. Respect. is scheduled to ship in October 2006 for a suggested retail price of $39.99, with an expected ESRB "Mature" rating.

Sierra Entertainment will also release Scarface: The World Is Yours, an open-world action game, in Fall 2006. Scarface: The World Is Yours is being developed by Radical Entertainment for the PS2, the Xbox and Windows PC.
