Quran on PlayStation

If you already got addicted to PSP then maybe you should try this.

KUALA LUMPUR: Muslims can read the Quran on their Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) now, thanks to the work of several Multimedia University (MMU) students.

The Quran software for PSP makes it easier for Muslims to read and understand the holy book with the help of illustrations and English translations, the students said.

This was the brainchild of Ikhwan Nazri, a final-year student of digital media at the university.

The 21-year-old and a team of six animators and graphics designers worked on the software for about four months.

“We worked on the project on and off, between our studies,” he said, adding that the product was built using Macromedia Flash.

Ikhwan said he chose to design the software specifically for the PSP, a portable games device, because he felt that it could be more than just an entertainment machine.

He is distributing the Quran software for free via after May 19.

Prior to that, those who are interested can send e-mail to to request a copy.
