Any gamers that thought Sony’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) had lost its way of late may soon be proven wrong. The company has announced a GPS navigation system for the portable gaming device.

Go! Explore: a PSP GPS navigation system

Dubbed Go! Explore, it consists of a GPS receiver and a UMD disc containing the gamer’s chosen maps. The software works in conjunction with the receiver to display their current location on the PSP, in much the same way as a TomTom.

Landmarks and points of interest are shown in 3D and gamers will be able to download additional maps from the PlayStation Network. However, working with third-party mapping companies, Sony’s already developed maps for a selection of countries, including the UK/Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland.

Sony has also created an in-car power adaptor and mount, should you want to replace your TomTom or Garmin.

Go! Explore will ship to Europe later this year for around €120 (£75/$150). A UK release date or price hasn’t been located yet.
