'Split/Second' (ALL) Also Coming to PSP - Screens

In Split/Second, players don't just race to the finish line to beat their opponents, they build up their power meter through deft driving and triggering "power plays," explosive moments that take out opponents or alter the track. The game takes place within a hyper-competitive reality television show with city-sized sets rigged for destruction.

Each track has numerous power plays that can be strategically triggered by skilled drivers.  Competitors in Split/Second don't just collide with other vehicles to knock them from the track -- they can trigger blockbuster action film-like explosive events that drastically alter the dynamics of the race.  Players must use strategy and pinpoint timing to derail opponents, tactically alter the track or create entirely new routes.

"Split/Second has become a hit with fans of racing and action games, and is the perfect fit for the PSP system," said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios.  "The explosive track altering features and fast arcade racing will have PSP system players worldwide playing it on-the-go or at home."

Split/Second for the PSP system will include unique handling and controls designed specifically for Sony's premier handheld game platform.  The game will feature an exclusive new track and challenges not found on the current versions.  In addition, the game also includes four-player local multiplayer.
