Practical Intelligence Quotient is back with more mind bending puzzles and features than before as D3Publisher of America announced that PQ2: Practical Intelligence Quotient will be available exclusively for the PSP.

PQ2 will help players calculate their intelligence by using the PQ scoring system based on the number of moves and the speed with which they complete more than 250 puzzles. PQ2 players will use the PSP system's infrastructure mode to take their score online to measure their brain power against their friends, their country and even their gender!

"PQ1 resonated exceptionally well with gamers and we look forward to offering PSP system owners the second edition to the best-selling brain game on the PSP system," said Alison Quirion, vice president of marketing, D3PA. "PQ2 will offer a compelling and rewarding gameplay session that translates well to portable, on-the-go gaming."

PQ2 uses a measuring system that was created under the guidance of Professor Masuo Koyasu of Kyoto University in Japan that determines players' 'Practical Intelligence Quotient' or PQ. Players will create their own puzzles and share with friends utilizing the PSP system's gamesharing mode or utilize infrastructure mode to upload puzzles and download new ones. PQ2 allows players the flexibility to choose which puzzles they want to play first and the ability to get a preliminary PQ score in roughly 10 minutes or play through the full puzzle set, including 10 unlockable puzzles, for their full PQ score.

PQ2: Practical Intelligence Quotient, rated E for Everyone, is developed by Nowproduction, and scheduled for release this summer.
