GTA: Chinatown Wars gets exclusive character on PSP

Rockstar has been slowly revealing details about how the PSP version of Chinatown Wars will differ from its Nintendo DS (and ultimately iPhone) counterparts on its official website. Last week it revealed the exclusive mission, "Factory Fun" which is an homage to the "classic" Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas mission "Are You Going to San Fierro?" In "Factory Fun" Chinatown Wars protagonist Huang must destroy a warehouse full of "illicit crops" with a flamethrower before escaping unharmed.

Today, the studio unveiled a new character in the shape of Melanie Mallard, an aspiring journalist and documentary filmmaker who gets caught up in a plot involving the criminal activities of Liberty City's Triad gang. Melanie has made a deal with Chan Jaoming to get a behind-the-scenes look at his business in hopes that she will emerge with a career-making story. As you can imagine, this doesn't go according to plan. Mallard, we're told, also makes an appearance in "Factory Fun" as a journalist covering the resulting blaze.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
