look wht i found on a website
A keystone client has been Wellington’s Sidhe, which has used Sellar’s gear to tweak the console version of its hit Sony PlayStation game Stacey Jones’ Rugby League. Trials have just begun on the new version of League for Sony’s portable PSP.
While PSP graphics look great, the smaller screen means simpler games and a lower cost to create a game. Wellington’s Sidhe has been quick to exploit this trend, and is in the advanced stages of creating a PSP version of its Rugby League PlayStation game.Sidhe is also developing an original PSP title, a stunt-driving, puzzle-solving effort called Gripshift. Others, like Dunedin’s Starlight Studios, are following suit. Wynands says Gripshift’s development costs will amount to just a fraction of those for a console or PC game.

Smells like roast **** to me.

Firstly, Gripshift was announced a long time ago, and released before RL2 anyway... I think they got their wires crossed. RL2 and Gripshift were announced roughly at the same time, so they may very well have assumed that RL2 was being released for PSP along with Gripshift.
