New 'Star Wars: BF' PSP Available Now


Posted October 9, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

George Lucas called me a few minutes ago* and asked me to tell you that Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron is available today.

I was like, "Okay, George. But what systems is it on?"

And he goes, "The PlayStation Portable, nub."

And so I was all, "What makes it special?"

And he was like, "It's Star Wars, a-hole. But also, up to 16 players can compete against each other over the Internet and eight via the PSP wireless."

So I was all, "I don't know, man. It's sounds okay... but what else?"

George Lucas goes, "How about this: Robust customization options replace the class system seen in previous Star Wars Battlefront titles, allowing for millions of possible unique combatants. With weapons, equipment and abilities that players select themselves, no two allies will likely ever look or perform exactly the same."

So I go, "You sound like a press release, and not the director of The Clone Wars."

Then he got mad and stole my hat.

(*I made this up. Except the part about Star Wars Battlefront Renegade Squadron being available on the PSP.)
