Sony Computer Entertainment Europe [SCEE] is pleased to confirm the September release of Planet PSP (Working Title), a stunning series of multimedia, interactive city guides created with the help of the travel gurus at Lonely Planet and exclusively available on PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable).
The launch will see six city guides covering Europe’s most popular destinations: Amsterdam, Barcelona, London, Paris, Prague and Rome, arrive on shelves this autumn.
Each guide has been developed with the young city breaker and frequent traveller in mind and comes packed with information on how to experience the very best places in town - from the latest restaurants to the most underground of clubs - along with videos, audio walks, photography, maps and pre-planned itineraries to suit every sort of visit, and every type of adventurous traveller.
Planet PSP (WT) is the only information source you really need, taking the knowledge and experience from the team at the Lonely Planet and mixing it with the great technology PSP has to offer. Make the most of the experiences each of the cities has to offer.
There are three information categories:
Points of interest: Each city has 250 main points of interest covering eating, sleeping, nightlife, shopping and sights with original photography, key information and contact details
Essential information: The bits you just must know from pharmacies to embassies, hospitals, airlines, money and costs
Getting around: Comprehensive and detailed zoom-in, zoom-out maps covering transport systems and roads
And four different ways to make the most of your visit:
Audio Tours: Each guide comes with three bespoke audio tours that you can listen to whilst you walk. Each takes you through a particular part of town and takes you off the beaten track
Video Content: A dedicated film crew has been out there capturing the essence of each city to inspire you – and show you round even before you touch down
Itineraries: Planet PSP (WT) comes packed with pre-loaded itineraries for every sort of visit from a cultural break to a weekend of hedonism. Each itinerary comes with a calendar view that can be built on to create the perfect schedule
Your Itineraries: Build your own visit from scratch drawing on the 250 points of interest to create your perfect city break – and go online to download more!
With plans for additional downloadable updates, videos, stills, and special interest itineraries - Planet PSP (WT) is one travel guide that will never be out of date, so get off the beaten track, hang out with the locals, live a little and let Planet PSP (WT) help you discover the true heart of the city.
