PSP GPS receiver now out in Japan

PSP GPS attachment

The GPS receiver attachment for the Sony PSP is now out and about in Japan. Guess Japanese PSP owners won’t be getting lost any time soon now.

Anyway. The PSP’s GPS accessory isn’t just for navigating. It can also be used with some new PSP titles. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is one example. In the game, players can connect the GPS receiver peripheral to the PSP and recruit soldiers depending on their current location in the real world.

You can also use the GPS receiver in Hot Shots Golf to get all the data you need on a real Japanese golf course like how far your are from the hole. Another game that will be using the GPS receiver is Homestar: 21st Century Navigator, which uses the GPS to get night sky data.

Yeah, maybe it’s just a gimmick, but at least it adds another dimension to PSP gaming, right? Don’t hesitate to let us know what you think by leaving a comment below. Oh, and if you’re looking to score one of these babies, you can grab ’em through Play-Asia for US$ 59.99.
