March 7, 2007 - Eidos announced today that it will be distributing the realistic billiards simulator, Gone Wild Pocket Pool in North America, exclusively on the PlayStation Portable.
Gone Wild Pocket Pool features 13 different types of billiard games, including mainstays like 8-ball and 9-ball, as well as more hardcore pool hall challenges like Black Jack, rotation, and Snooker. Furthmore, Eidos seems to understand its audience, as evidenced by the inclusion of some well-endowed hotties, known as the Dream Models. In-game success directly results in some unlockable babalicious video and picture galleries.
"Pocket Pool is a game that can stand alone as a realistic billiard simulator, however sprinkle in some sex appeal and now you have a true gaming treat," said Robert Lindsey of Eidos. Kevin McGill, Eidos's marketing manager expanded on this, stating that "the PlayStation Portable is a great handheld platform for mature audiences. Pocket Pool is a game designed to tap into the desires of a dominant male audience, providing players with a fun and sexy gameplay experience."
This can only be good news, as the main thing we felt was missing from previous pool games was ridiculously oversized breasts.
