Shaun White Snowboarding for DS, PSP

Plus: Ubisoft dates console versions.

Ubisoft has expanded the stable of Shaun White Snowboarding games to include DS and PSP versions. Both will be released here on 14th November, alongside Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii versions.

The DS and PSP instalments, as with the rest of the series, will be developed specifically for their respective platforms.

Shaun White Snowboarding on DS lets riders create paths down four snowy mountains, tracing shapes on the touch-screen to activate various moves. Four friends can join together in Wi-Fi multiplayer in a host of modes, and customise their look to stand out. There's some sort of sticker trading fiasco for Wi-Fi, too.

On the other hand, Shaun White Snowboarding on PSP uses a bit more technical grunt to open a larger world with five fluffy-white mountains to surf down. There's solo modes to gain experience from and boost rider attributes with, plus co-operative and competitive multiplayer excursions.
