IFE Services has upgraded its in-flight Sony PlayStation Portables (PSPs) with new mini games and digital comics for airline passengers.
In addition to watching movies, TV shows and listening to music, each PSP will also include a broad range of popular mini games such as Angry Birds, Zombie Tycoon and Farm Frenzy. Younger airline passengers can enjoy the wide selection of digital comics loaded onto each PSP with titles including Wallace and Gromit, Superman, Tron and King Kong.
IFE Services announced its agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) to distribute the PSP system to airlines in May 2010. Through this collaboration it has become one of the fastest growing handheld in-flight entertainment systems in the industry with 8 airlines signing agreements to date.
The PSP has proved popular with airlines and passengers because of its rich entertainment content, low weight, ease of use, durability and long battery life of up to 11 hours.
Managing Director of IFE Services, Andy McEwan said, “The PSP is ideal for airlines wanting a cost-effective and flexible portable in-flight entertainment system. Passengers already love using the PSP to play the best games and watch great movies and TV shows. The addition of mini games and comics will make its entertainment package even stronger with content for passengers of all ages to enjoy.”
