  What:  The PlayStation®2 Truck, Sony Computer Entertainment America's
         completely refurbished Touring Attraction will make its debut at
         the Hard Rock Cafe Rockfest presented by Oldsmobile Alero.  The
         PlayStation 2 Touring Attraction, a 68-foot custom-designed
         tractor-trailer, will provide fans the first opportunity for an
         exclusive, hands-on experience with the revolutionary computer
         entertainment system to be released in the fall.

         60 participants at a time can play yet-to-be released PlayStation

         Ridge Racer® V, Take Two Interactive's Smuggler's Run™,
         Agetec's Armored Core®2 and more.  For head-to-head competition,
         the vehicle's layout converts into a championship arena where
         players can compete on a 80-inch video wall, which can be viewed
         by hundreds of people.

         The festival will feature a unique, sponsor-branded entertainment
         zone complete with sports demonstrations, interactive activities,
         lifestyle and cultural exhibits, a variety of vendors and an
         onsite Hard Rock Cafe.  This year's Rockfest lineup includes live
