Cannibal the Musical coming to PSP

Cannibal the Musical coming to PSP
According to IGN, "Cannibal: The Musical" will be available on UMD discs (the format used by the PSP) on March 7th! For those of you not familiar with it, Cannibal is a full-length musical and movie -- sort of like "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut," but not animated. Cannibal tells the story of Alfred Packer (played by Trey), the sole member to return from a group lost in the mountains during the cold winter and his two-timing horse, Liane.

If you haven't seen Cannibal, it's definitely worth checking out -- it'll make your day shpadoinkle!
