Should you really get excited over a new Space Invaders
game? The answer is: yes. Originally announced exclusively for the DS, the PSP will receive a widescreen version of this hyperactive re-envisioning of Taito's arcade classic. The surreal graphics, speedy gameplay, and massive power-ups gave us goosebumps at TGS, and we think PSP will be able to more than pull off an equally intense experience. In fact, we'd much rather have a wide version of the game, than be forced to look at two screens at once. It's just easier that way.

The original game was 4 kilobytes. Obviously this will be more, but maybe this will be one of the new games they'll distribute through the Playstation Network Store?

that would be fantastic. i had never heard of this "extreme" version of Space Invaders until reading this post but just from that screen shot, this looks fun. i would love to be able to download it for like $5-$10 and play it on my PSP.

yah this is kewl not only the wider brighter better screen but in a higher resolution, this will be kewl! I have space invader ex for the GBA but it is SOOOO much nicer to play even that title emulated perfectly on the PSP.

I''ve been trying to keep up with the game at the other fanboy, good to hear that it's coming for PSP too. Sounds like an interesting take on the concept.

Hmm, I was all set to pick this up for my DS, but I think I'd rather pick it up for my PSP I wouldn't really call notice to the DSs two screens, though. The only stuff thats on the top screen is what's on the left and right of the PSP's screen up there. I still can't help it, the draw of the wide screen is awesome.

Ya know, I got really excited a couple years ago when I found the Namco games for the PSP. Then I heard about Space Invaders: Evolution ( or was it revolution? ). It looked amazing! I thumbed my nose and blew raspberries at my DS fangirl wife pointing out how the PSP version was gonna blow away the DS version visually. Gods, I am now so horribly disappointed.
