Players can now fully personalize their officially licensed imports, tuners, classic muscle cars and motorcycles both inside and out with a dizzying array of licensed rims, body kits, interior upgrades, vinyls and more.
Midnight Club: LA Remix for the PSP system provides another incredible portable racing experience. Developed by Rockstar London, the game will take full advantage of the hardware to deliver the unrivaled sense of speed and style that the bestselling Midnight Club series is known for.
