DUNDEE, UK– 4th MAY 2010

Scottish video-game publisher and developer Tag Games is pleased to announce the launch of Car Jack Streets for Sony PSP/PS3 Minis Launching today (4th May) in North America it will be followed closely by a European wide launch in June. The title will be priced at $4.99.

Following on from the success of the mobile, iPhone and Nintendo DSi Ware™ versions now PSP and Plasystation 3 players are able to sample the delights of this critically acclaimed crime, action and driving game. Starring as Randal Meyers, a petty criminal with a long standing gambling habit and a streak of bad luck, the player must complete all manner of criminal and legitimate tasks to repay a $1 million debt to the Italian mob. Featuring a unique real-time game mechanic Car Jack Streets requires the player to pay back $50,000 of the debt each week or face certain death. It’s a fight for survival in a city gone mad!

Paul Farley, Managing Director of Tag Games, said,“We are delighted to launch Car Jack Streets as our first ever PSP and Playstation 3 title. The Mini’s platform is a perfect fit for Car Jack Streets and we know that the Sony fanbase are going to really enjoy the mix of retro and action game-play that Car Jack Streets provides. CJS is currently Tag’s most successful title and has been a hit across each of the platforms we have launched on to date. We fully expect the Mini’s launch to continue this trend and perhaps pave the way for a larger PSN release in future months.”

He continues“We always knew that with the excellent processing power of the PSP this would be the fastest, most insane version of the game to date, what we weren’t prepared for was the quality of upscaling on the Playstation 3! Quite simply playing the game on a HD television was a revelation! We think for less than five dollars and over 26 WEEKS of game-play Car Jack Streets represents awesome value for money and gives many retail titles a run for their money!”
