katapsp.jpg Over at Sony Japan's website, they've updated with a streaming ad for 'Me And My Katamari' for PSP [.ASX], complete with jaunty soundtrack and new footage of the much-awaited Namco title, which is due out in Japan this week, and will come to the U.S. in early 2006, most likely.

Previews of the game are being shown to the North American press, and Jeremy 'Toastyfrog' Parish at 1UP very readable hands-on preview of the game, noting of the port (which Keita Takahashi is not involved with, and for which initial contol impressions were bad, since the PSP lacks dual analog sticks): "Happily, things aren't as bad as they first seemed. After putting in a little time with a near-final version of the Japanese game outside the manic environs of the TGS show floor, we've found the control concerns are much less drastic than initially reported. Katamari on PSP does take some getting used to, but it's a far cry from the disaster early reports had suggested."
