Strike for PSP Releases on November 6 to Stores Nationwide

Sony Computer Entertainment
America and Slant Six Games Introduce New Gameplay Format to
Multimillion-Unit-Selling SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Franchise

Sony Computer Entertainment America
(SCEA) announced today the launch of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike
exclusively for the PSP handheld entertainment system. Released in time for the
holidays and developed by Slant Six Games, this unique title brings a new
gameplay format to the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs franchise, letting players take
tactical command of an entire SEAL team and experience a true combat simulation.
With more than 20 hours of gameplay in single-player mode alone, established and
new fans of the franchise alike will find that SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical
Strike builds on the strength of its multi-million unit selling predecessors to
create a new and exciting approach to tactical warfare.

Gamers will play their way through
SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike’s nine main non-linear missions and 18
instant action missions as the tactical commander of an entire four-man SEAL
team who react to commands given in real-time. Evaluating their situation from
their team’s perspective, players will plan their approach and execute their
strategy using the innate expertise of their four-man team. Another first for
the SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs franchise, players will also be given the option to
play as international Special Forces from the UK, Australia, France, Italy,
Spain, Germany, South Korea and the Netherlands, all supported with native
languages.

"We are very excited by what we have
accomplished with SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike," said Seth Luisi,
Director of Development, SCEA. "This PSP exclusive title offers the most
realistic portrayal of Special Operations’ team tactics and strategy seen
to-date, while continuing to deliver the kind of excitement that the SOCOM
franchise is known for. We feel strongly that established and new SOCOM fans
alike will find that this game delivers an exhilarating experience enhanced by
some of the most impressive graphics seen on PSP so far."

The storyline has players commanding
a four-man SEAL team set in the midst of rising instability in South America
after having been called on to rescue the ambassador to Panama who has been
abducted by radical insurgent forces. With consent from the Panamanian
government, players will guide their team as they are drawn through the
country’s urban and industrial centers, and then into the lush jungle
surrounding the Panama Canal.

Marking the seventh SOCOM: U.S. Navy
SEALs title to hit the PlayStation(R) family of platforms exclusively; the
realism that players can expect to experience with SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs
Tactical Strike is second-to-none with no hidden turns or unrealistic rules.
Maintaining long-standing relationships with U.S. Naval Special Warfare Command,
both SCEA and Slant Six Games took careful steps to ensure that this PSP title
offers the most realistic scenarios and approaches throughout gameplay.While
planning, evaluation and execution play an important role in mission success,
players will also need to have a solid grasp of coordination, field tactics and
equipment use to achieve their campaign objectives. The title’s open play style
invites replay, and improvement is rewarded with command equity, allowing
players to upgrade their skills, weapons and equipment.

Building upon SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs
Fireteam Bravo and SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 2’s legacy of online
play, SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike gives players the opportunity to
engage in multiplayer games of up to four players in both Ad Hoc and online
Infrastructure modes. The title’s innovative new gameplay format gives each
player control of a team of four soldiers delivering a truly unique multiplayer
experience.

Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Tactical Strike T
