Atari confirms development of game for Sony's consoles in addition to PC and Xbox 360.


Test Drive Unlimited

Atari's Test Drive Unlimited will be arriving on Sony's PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable in autumn 2006. The game is currently in development at the company's Melbourne House studio, and Atari promises that the PSP version will be one of the first genuinely online games for the console.

Test Drive Unlimited is an open-road driving game set on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The same 70 luxury supercars, solo challenges, and player-created races will make it onto Sony's consoles from the Xbox 360.

The game is split into single-player and multiplayer components. The solo mode lets you complete challenges to win high-performance vehicles and larger garages to put them in. The game also has a massive online component and has been pitched as the first massively multiplayer online racing game. Players from around the world can create a challenge for other drivers, place bets on race outcomes, and join clans.

The game will be released for the Xbox 360, PC, PlayStation2, and PlayStation Portable in the autumn.
