PaRappa the Rapper PSP

PaRappa the Rapper, one of the first rhythm video games ever, hit the PlayStation in 1996 and bizarrely featured a rapping dancing dog and an appropriately abnormal plot. PaRappa quickly achieved hit status and was in part to blame for the video game invasion of clubs and other bastions of mainstream culture such as ...uhm... open air parties.

Now, more than ten years later, Parappa the Rapper is ready to invade buses and hopefully classrooms, using only a Sony PSP, as Sony announced the handheld version of the game should be hitting shelves early this summer. The game will be more or less a straight PSOne port sporting a few enhancements such as wireless multiplayer and downloadable songs. Yummy & porny, if I may say so.
