OMG, NYC MTA on PSP

This one seems kind of obvious, but hey I haven't seen one yet. I also couldn't find one with google. So here ya go.

A NYC Subway Map for the SONY Playstation Portable (PSP.)

Fun, safe and crystal clear. (in fact you could even take the resolution down to save precious memory stick space.)

WARNING:
I am fairly sure I should say you may not use this map. It is not to be downloaded by clicking Here and dropped into a PHOTO folder on your PSP. It should also not be viewed using the magnifying glass (found when you push the triangle button.) And finally you should not use the Joystick to navigate thru the map.

Ok, that should satisfy the boys in legal.

Enjoy.

UPDATE: This map was obtained from www.nycsubway.org and was designed by Michael Calcagno.

Shouldnt be a problem since this isn't the MTA's art. Anyone can make thier own map of a place..

Like NYC doesn't want people knowing how to pay to use the subway. LOL

better watch it, they might use their ~$1 billion surplus funds to go after you to collect some much needed licensing fees...

Agree with what Anonymous #5 said.
Gimme a break! It's like the big dogs eating the little dogs. It's a map for god's sake. All it does is to help the public to use your system and make u money. shessh. It's the telling the MTA clerk not to give out subway maps to the public. This is a file copy which don't even cost to distribute out to the public. They should applause this idea instead of trying to take a licensing fee out of it. Pretty much like saying - u can go to www.mta.info and look at our map but DON'T SAVE it to your HD.

Nothing says love better than sticking it to the MTA.
Fare Hikes, Dirty Cars, Delayed Trains, Cancelled Trains. For a month after the last fare hike, every train I took was cancelled, delayed, combined with other trains, you name it. Then the Daily News says they have a surplus, and immidiately they speculate another fare hike in 2007. Stop sitting around speculating and do some WORK!!

Yaw go on -
The MTA will give you a medal.
After all, they are public servants, or is it idiot savants.
Any rate, everybody will have a map and they can get rid of the booth attendants and conductors - which they are going to do anyway - makes things easier for terrorists.

you shouldn't be laughing. The dude who created i-pod subwaymaps for nyc got sued by the mta.

SubwayMaps said...

Uh guys... this map isn't official MTA map...it's my own design that's always on www.nycsubway.org

First...the guy who made this available on PSP should have asked me if he could do this...I wouldn't mind as long as he/she simpl y follow my request which isn't that hard to follow...he/she doesn't make any money off of any of my maps, he/she properly credited my name and the website I use to post my maps there, that's about it.

I've heard of all the BS with MTA going after ipodsubwaymaps.com about their official map...I know that the most safe way to post maps is to design YOUR own maps or ask someone like me to prevent having problems with their lawyers!

If you can give me the person's name/email address and/or website...I can tell that person not to worry but just ask next time he/she use any maps (also to tell that person not to worry about MTA because it isn't MTA official map!) :-)

This is wonderful. Thank you so much. For someone who is not computer savvy, I was able to add to my wing and it works just fine. All I did was save it as a pic and add it to my external memory so that I can use it on all my other devices. I live in NYC but drive most times. Occasionally I need the subway. Thanks a million, T

You have the ability to download psp games, no matter how old or new. They also make sure to give you the right software and detailed directions on how to download and transfer your games to PSP. I was really lucky I was able to find them.
