Vivendi Universal Games' Sierra Entertainment has announced the development of Miami Vice The Game, a thrilling third-person action shooter inspired by the Universal Pictures crime drama, Miami Vice, in theaters July 28, 2006. Set in present-day Miami, players will go deep undercover as narcotic officers Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs in the rich, glamorous and decadent world of Miami Vice -- a place where badges don't count. Developed by UK-based Rebellion, Miami Vice The Game will be available exclusively for the PSP(TM) (PlayStation(R)Portable) system in July 2006. The development of the game comes through an agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group.

"By taking full advantage of the advanced technology on the PSP system, Miami Vice The Game will deliver action-packed missions and highly-detailed locations that capture the danger-filled lives of the film's main characters and immerse players in the authentic world of Miami Vice," said Cindy Cook, Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer for VU Games.

In Miami Vice The Game, players follow a storyline set just before the events of the film. Gamers must build up the nefarious reputation necessary to infiltrate the seedy underbelly of South Beach, and ultimately bring down the organization of an "untouchable" South American drug lord. Gamers can also choose to play as either Crockett or Tubbs, or team up via wireless to play each mission cooperatively.

  Key game features include:

  *  THE MIAMI VICE EXPERIENCE -- Play as undercover cops Crockett and Tubbs
     in the notorious world of Miami Vice -- the mansions, the money, and
     the mayhem -- set in present-day Miami

  *  DESIGNED EXCLUSIVELY FOR THE PSP System -- Experience cutting-edge
     motion capture, highly-detailed environments, and lighting effects
     inspired by the film created to maximize the technology of the PSP
     system

  *  COOPERATIVE PLAY -- Play as partners with wireless action

  *  MORE THAN A STRAIGHT SHOOTER
         *  Drug Trading -- Raise needed capital and build reputation by
            managing drug inventory
         *  Hacking -- Unlock sensitive information (security codes,
            locations, etc.)
         *  Interactive Cutscene Encounters (ICE) -- Continue to boost
            reputation through dramatic interactive cinematic encounters
            with powerful drug lords

  *  REPUTATION BUILDING DYNAMIC -- Establish rep as a major player in the
     narcotics world through contraband trading, aggressively interacting
     with drug barons, and pursuing criminals with reckless abandon

  *  HIGH-POWERED ACTION MISSIONS -- Armed with intelligence from informants
     and utilizing hacking skills, take on the enemy in varied locations
     with an impressive array of weapons

  *  BOAT GUNPLAY -- Experience high-speed chases through Miami's
     treacherous waterways while engaging in boat-to-boat shootouts

Miami Vice The Game will be available exclusively for the PSP system in July 2006 for a suggested retail price of $39.99, with an ESRB "M" for Mature rating.
