Activision has confirmed that it plans to release PlayStation Portable versions of Spider-Man 2 and Tony Hawk's Underground 2 alongside the hardware when it launches in the USA.

Spider-Man 2, developed by Vicarious Visions, and THUG2, underway at Shaba Games, will both line-up alongside the system and are now amongst its only confirmed launch titles - as Sony continues to evade the question of when the handheld will come out specifically.

"SCEA's PlayStation Portable Entertainment Platform is an exciting new platform that combines processing power with a sleek new look that will appeal to an older demographic," said Kathy Vrabeck, president of Activision Publishing.

"By matching our top brands like Tony Hawk's Underground 2 and Spider-Man 2 with the new entertainment device, we are able to broaden our consumer base and leverage our franchises into new areas," she added.

Activision also plans to release Spider-Man 2 alongside the Nintendo DS in the USA on November 21st, but for now at least we're still left to speculate when and where we'll actually get to play with the PSP first. Although Sony maintains that the console will be released this year, we're still without specifics on date, pricing, launch line-up, and question marks still linger on issues like battery life.
