Sony Takes the Wrap Off NGP Games on Video
With Computex nearly over, the tech industry is heading straight into E3 coverage where the most exciting products expected to be shown are the Wii 2 and Sony’s NGP/PSP2/Vita.
We already know quite a bit about the NGP, at least as far as specs are concerned, but Sony this week added to our knowledge of the device by releasing videos of the console in action. The clips demonstrate several titles, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Wipeout (working title), and a music game called Sound Shapes. Sony also discussed Hustle Kings, and Super Stardust Delta, but neither of these titles were demo'd on video.
The game demos themselves make for great watching, but most people will likely be focusing on the shiny new device in the player’s hands. However, Sony is quick to note that though what you see is a ‘real-size’ NGP, it’s a development unit, not the final product.
“Every NGP you’ll see is a dev unit; they’re the right size, but they don’t possess that final PlayStation-quality fit and finish,” writes Jeff Rubenstein, Social Media Manager at Sony PlayStation. “What you’ll eventually be able to pick up in a store will look a heck of a lot better.”
For those of you wondering about other NGP details, social connectivity, data plans, 3G, Sony says it will have more information on that ‘down the line’ and that these videos are more for showing off the games than anything else.
Check ‘em out and let us know what you think!
Of course, these are all Sony titles, so we still haven't seen any third-party NGP games. Hopefully Sony will have something to show off in that regard next week at E3.
