Cruise Japan with the PSP Camera and Nippon no Asoko de


psppic.jpgFew PSP titles support the camera. My Stylist does and it uses the accessory to catalog a wardrobe. The upcoming portable map cross alien tourist game, Nippon no Asoko de, uses it for a similar purpose, cataloging the world. With the PSP camera you can snap pictures and create an original map of Japan. A neat idea, but this sounds like way too much work for me. Apprentice cartographers may feel otherwise.

With these features Nippon no Asoko de sounds like a great product for tourists, alien or not, visiting Japan. Too bad Sony didn’t make Chikyuu no Asoko de (The Earth over there) instead. I would love to have the world neatly packed on a UMD.
