Prepare for an all-new, handheld Brian Lara challenge as Codemasters announces Brian Lara 2007 Pressure Play , an original title in the best-selling cricket series, coming this summer for the PSP (PlayStationPortable) system.

Brian Lara 2007 Pressure Play is being specifically designed for PSP gaming with an emphasis on new burst-play cricket challenges and will deliver all the exciting and accessible cricket gameplay that the series is renowned for.

The game will lead with the Pressure Play Mission Mode - a new and exclusive game mode consisting of bite-sized burst-play challenges that cover every nuance of cricket. Progressing from easier "bowl a maiden over" challenges for the beginner to more difficult "one-ball-left-to-win" scenarios, Pressure Play allows the player to train and then master the sport of cricket via specific pressurised objectives. There are 16 unique missions to master ranging from Knowledge, Winners, Classic Matches, Masters and more off the wall "Googly" challenges.

The game also features a full ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 mode, enabling players to compete as all of the stars of International Cricket in this ICC Officially Licensed Event. The game comes complete with 16 licensed international teams with official kits, 240 licensed international players including Kevin Pietersen, Matthew Hayden, Shane Bond, and of course Brian Lara - all with real player names and likenesses and officially licensed ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 stadia.

Brian Lara 2007 Pressure Play comes complete with an ad-hoc Multiplayer mode in which 2 players can compete wirelessly in a one-on-one ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 warm-up match. Cricket fans can recreate their favourite games from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 wirelessly such as Ireland's historic victory over Pakistan, India's dramatic defeat by Bangladesh and England's exciting run chase against the West Indies.

With instant Hawk-Eye ball analysis options now at any point, enhanced AI for PSP gaming and updated TV-style cameras and replays, Brian Lara 2007 Pressure Play will increase the pressure on all cricket fans this summer! Have you got the balls?!? Go online at
