Sony Takes the Wrap Off NGP Games on Video

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.

    I really dislike touching the screen like that...

    What if I like to game while in bed facing the celing? If I have to tilt it's gonna be a pain in the ass and it might not even work!

    Oh well, either way I'm too old for hand held gaming systems anyways...

    Depends what game you're playing. In Uncharted all of the touch controls are optional. I'm sure there are settings that can disable the gyroscope as well, seeing as how the game is so similar to the PS3 version.

    Gyroscopes can be calibrated, and most games offer in game calibration. For example, if one was to lay on their back, they can calibrate center/down level while the device is upside down. Its orientation would be as such now. Not really an issue to be honest =)
