Konami claims Street Supremacy

Portable street racer for Sony's PSP will feature team-based competition, licensed cars, and RPG elements.

Opening up the PSP's garage reveals cars upon cars upon cars. The handheld has its fair share of racing games, including entrants from heavyweight franchises such as Wipeout, Burnout, and Need for Speed.

The traffic jam that is PSP racing games is going to increase its traffic by one, thanks to Konami's newly announced Street Supremacy, due in early 2006 from developer Genki. Genki is no stranger to the streets, as it is behind the wheel of the Tokyo Xtreme Racer franchise.

Street Supremacy lets gamers become king of the road through various game modes that "set it apart from other titles in the racing genre." A Team Battle mode pits two crews against each other in an effort to claim turf through winning races or sending opponents into walls. Team loyalty and recruiting is dependent on success on the road.

Manufacturers such as Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Subaru have licensed their autos for the game. The cars can be modified with paint jobs, spoilers, exhausts, and other new parts.

This game NEEDS to be online. Why have a WiFi handheld if u can't play the games against other people? btw, is it just more..or there a 2:1 ratio on racing games to other?

Is the PSP turning into the N64? Are you kidding me? The PSP is way better than the DS, but Nintendo has been making portables for a long time and has a huge library. Give the PSP time. It'll all work out. Wait for Nintendo to come out with something just as good. Wait for Microsoft to jump in. After that, we the gamers will win!!! More games!!!!! Bring on more games!!!!

OH NO! Not another racingin game for the PSP! Just kidding! (I like NFS: Underground Rivals). I have to agree with everyone else. More online! I don't have any friends with a PSP to play multiplayer anyway. More car manufacturers, too!
