DJ Max Portable - The very first DJing music game for Sony PSP™ from the Korean maker Pentavision (including detailed description & Collector's Edition Gallery)


DJing and Bemani fans listen up!

From the Korean game maker Pentavision comes a special PSP™ version of the web-based and mobile music mixing game DJ Max. The game resembles Konami's popular beatmania series: You take the position as DJ and are challenged to hit the correct button(s) on your PSP™ handheld at the right time to complete the song.

As expected from a music game, most parts are completely in English and make DJ Max easy to understand and to pick up for persons without any Korean knowledge. With more than 50 tracks to choose from (including K-Pop, Techno, Breakbeat, Hip Hop, Rock and other popular genres), every music game fan will find a tune of his taste. Lyrics of all songs are included in the game's manual as bonus.

Prior song selection, you will have several options available, such as speed & fader adjustment, mirror mode selection and more. After completion of a song, you will receive a summary of your performance, including a combo & break counter, rating and score.

Your achievements are saved into a Ranking Chart. Additionally, you can unlock new tracks and items in the Gallery Mode.

Depending on the difficulty level, DJ Max can be played in either 4 button (left, up, triangle, circle) or 6 button mode (left, up, right, square, triangle, circle). You can further manually increase the speed with the L/R buttons.

DJ Max contains a number of game modes and extras as listed up below. Be warned that rookies might have their difficulties in the beginning; DJ Max's difficulty level is adjusted to experienced gamers.

  • Rookie DJing: Easy difficulty 4 button mode. 10 tracks are selectable from the start.

  • Unlimited Mixing Stage: Choose from 40 tracks from the start in either 4 or 6 button mode.

OST

All 58 tracks that are included on the Collector's Edition double disc soundtrack album are also stored on the UMD. The player includes useful functions, such as random and repeat play. Ideal to chill out and listen to DJ Max Portable's sound on the go.
