PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable)-3000 gets a feminine touch with a Lilac Purple makeover

11th June 2009: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE)’s rainbow of PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) colours is about to grow further with a brand-new, very special model: a Lilac Purple PSP-3000 that will come packed with top game Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show for A-list pop star entertainment straight out of the box. Arriving this October in PAL territories, the Lilac Purple model brings a girly touch to the current wardrobe of PSP-3000 colours that also includes Vibrant Blue, Mystic Silver, Pearl White and Radiant Red as well as the classic Piano Black.

“As girls spend as much time listening to music, taking and editing photos, watching movies, chatting with Skype™, surfing the net and playing games with their friends as boys do,” says Isabelle Tomatis, European Marketing Manager, SCEE:“we thought it was about time that they had their own colour of PSP– and we’ve styled this one up just for them.”

In the first ever Hannah Montana game for PSP, fans will not only star in the show, they will also design a custom concert in each city they visit and rock the stage as they perform as Hannah Montana to 11 hit songs, including three new tracks. Jackson and Lilly join in on the fun in Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show PSP game to help Hannah on her tour as they travel to seven amazing locations around the world and customise outfits, design stages and so much more. Players will add their flair to performances by creating unique routines for each song with the“Rockstar Moment” maker by customising dance moves, lighting and special effects. Players will also be able to style the band members and the back-up dancers with amazing fashions, hair-styles and accessories.– and the whole pack also comes with a Memory Stick™ for players to save their designs and settings onto.

But playing Hannah Montana: Rock Out The Show is just one possibility with this PSP. With games, music, videos, online chat and photos to explore, this is a device that will make girls the envy of their friends.
