SANTA CLARA, Calif., (June 14, 2005) –
Leading video games developer and publisher Namco Hometek Inc. announced today
that "Dead to Rights(R): Reckoning" has gone gold. A brand new adventure created
exclusively for the PSP(TM) portable entertainment system, "Dead to Rights:
Reckoning" features a new selection of hard-hitting moves and disarms, an
original storyline and wireless multiplayer action for up to four players. "Dead
to Rights: Reckoning" will be launching on June 28 and is rated M for Mature by
the ESRB.

"Dead to Rights: Reckoning" finds tough cop
Jack Slate and his canine counterpart, Shadow, once again thrust into Grant
City’s web of crime and deception. Tracking down an important informant who has
been kidnapped by a major crime lord, Jack makes his way through the City’s
toughest neighborhoods. Using the series’ trademark blend of film noir and
cinematic style action, Jack teaches lowlife criminals a lesson they will never
forget as he fights to complete his mission. In addition to the franchise’s
classic moves such as slow motion dives, dual wielding and bone shattering
disarms, Jack can now engage in fire fights from a prone position and engage
enemies using the brutal dive tackle disarm. For the first time in the "Dead to
