Sony formally revealed the heavily-rumored PSP2 in Japan today. The device has been codenamed NGP for "next generation portable." It is set for release by the end of 2011. Pricing information was not provided.NGP will use a new game medium, a small flash memory based card, dedicated for NGP software titles. The cards will store full game titles and add-on game content or save data. Sony notes that they'll be able to provide higher capacity cards in the future to allow developers to store more game data. The device also supports PlayStation Network Trophies.

The NGP contains a touch screen on top and a touch pad on the bottom. This will allow players to interact with games through "touch, grab, trace, push and pull" moves of the fingers. Sadly, the release date and price were not revealed. However, Sony did say that the NGP would be out for the 2011 holiday season.


The NGP's debut party saw Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet and Call of Duty take the stage, but most were just tech demos. So far, more than 10 third-parties are listed a supporting the NGP. NGP, the successor to the PlayStation Portable, is getting an all-new interface. Dubbed LiveArea, the program acts as a hub page for games, and like the XMB before it, LiveArea allows users to hop between the different parts of the PlayStation space. Want to know more about the live message boards and 3G connectivity?



Ever wish you could play PlayStation games on your smartphone or tablet? Sony aims to do precisely that with PlayStation Suite, their new unified gaming platform for Android 2.3.

During Sony's press conference today where it revealed the next iteration of the PSP system, currently codenamed Next Generation Portable, a slew of tech demos and games were shown.

Sony said the NGP rivals the graphical power of the PlayStation 3, and the company proved it. Sony released a trailer that showed off several key titles, including: Hot Shots Golf Next, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, WipEout, Resistance, Hustle Kings, and Uncharted Portable.

Other first-party titles also include Little Deviants, Gravity Daze, Reality Fighters, Smart As, and Broken.

Shuhei Yoshida, president of SCE Worldwide Studios, took the stage to give a live gameplay demonstration of Uncharted. Shuhei first controlled Drake using the touch screen and moved him through a jungle environment. He later showed he could control Drake swinging on a vine using the NGP's SixAxis capability. Drake can also be controlled by the bottom touch pad. The built-in gyro sensor was also demoed to control Drake's aiming.

Later, Jun Takeuchi of Capcom took the stage to announce Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, a downloadable version of the PSP Monster Hunter Portable ported over for play on NGP. He gave a quick demo on stage. Takeuchi also gave a short demo of a realtime cutscene from Lost Planet 2 running on the NGP, saying it took roughly two weeks for his team to port over. Lost Planet 2 was not announced as a planned NGP release, it was shown only as a demonstration of the power of MT Framework on NGP. HeTakeuchididn't announce any new games but said to stay tuned.

Next up, Toshihiro Nagoshi from SEGA appeared and showed off a video demo of Yakuza: Of the End, a spin-off zombie title currently set for PS3. Nagoshi did not announce that it would arrive on NGP.

A new Dynasty Warriors game was confirmed. Tecmo Koei's Akihiro Suzuki showed off some gameplay that allows players to simply tap an enemy to kill them. Metal Gear director Hideo Kojima later came out to show off a real-time demo of a cutscene from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Kojima envisions the possibility of creating a PlayStation 3 title that players can than transfer to the NGP to play on the go. He'll be presenting his new project at E3 this June.

Making a surprise appearance was Epic Games' Tim Sweeney who showed off two real-time demos, Citadel, which is currently available on iPhone, and Dungeon Defenders on Android. And last but not least, Philip Earl from Activision announced a new Call of Duty title was in development for NGP. No gameplay footage was shown.

Here are a list of current third-party publishers and developers supporting the NGP: Grasshopper, IREM, Level 5, Namco Bandai, Square Enix, Ubisoft, 2K Games, Rockstar, Capcom, SEGA, Tecmo Koei, Konami, Epic, Activision.

Sony Looking Into Options Regarding UMD Games on NGP

Sony's next generation portable system, codenamed "NGP" ditches the UMD format of the current generation PSP for DS-like memory cards. This leaves PSP owners with a bit of a predicament: what happens to that massive UMD collection you've built up?

Japanese news site Gigazine asked Sony Japan about this issue and got some surprisingly good news.

Sony and its third parties have been pushing download releases for many of their PSP game releases since the release of the PSP go. As mentioned by CEO Kaz Hirai at last week's PlayStation Meeting press conference where the NGP was first unveiled, Sony will be continuing to work with third parties to get the system's backlog available in downloadable format. This, of course, is dependent on rights issues not getting in the way.

Gigazine also learned that Sony is planning NGP rereleases for PSP UMD titles -- that is, PSP games rereleased on NGP format cards. Sony didn't clearly state what exactly this means. Would it be just the same game on an NGP card, or would there be improvements? We'll have to wait for clarification from Sony on the matter.

Little is known about the NGP's implementation of backwards compatibility at present aside from the announcement that the system will be able to play downloaded PSP games. At the PlayStation Meeting press conference, Capcom's Jun Takeuchi demoed a version of Monster Hunter Freedom 3 that used the right analogue stick for camera control. It's unclear if this was an actual alteration to the game or if it was just the current d-pad camera controls mapped to the stick. There's also some speculation that the system will have to use some sort of visual filtering system to make the lower resolution PSP games look playable on the NPG's high resolution screen.

So if you already have a collection of UMD games for the original PSP, does this mean you'll have to repurchase your games either as a digital download on PlayStation Network or on an NGP card? Sony told Gigazine that it's currently looking into various possibilities regarding this area but has nothing to announce at present. It did, however, state straight out that there are currently no plans for a "UMD reader" device that some have been hoping for.

All this fuss over UMD games may be a bit confusing for gamers outside of Japan, where the PSP is long past its prime. In Japan, however, PSP is among the strongest systems right now and was selling so well following Monster Hunter Freedom 3's December release that hardware shortages were reported for much of January. With a rich upcoming lineup that includes such titles as Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy Type-0, keeping current PSP owners happy is presumably one of Sony's top concerns.

i completely forgot about that^^. I have so many umd's sitting around it would suck if they became obsolete. Maybe they'll introduce some sort of coupon program for people who have umds via the upc code from the box.

i hope they let us use UMD's.

im not buying a new memory stick cause, if its rivaled to ps3's graphics i wonder how big files will be. and i didn't recall them saying how much memory is stored in the HD or if it comes with a free stick. my point is, if your really into it, it will fill up in no time.

Possible NGP price leaked by Gamestop

http://playstationlifestyle.net/2011/02/09/gamestop-leaks-possible-ngp-price/

Quote :
A leaked GameStop photo of upcoming video game releases has hinted at what the upcoming successor to the PlayStation Portable, the NGP, may end up costing when it releases in the US.

One of the main points of speculation since the announcement of the NGP has been it’s price point. The new handheld system is touting PS3 like graphics on a touch screen, two thumb sticks, multiple motion tracking sensors, as well as a touch pad on the back. This coupled with a high end camera, cross platform playing capabilities, and Wi-fi and 3G connectivity, all comes together for what’s presumably some expensive technology. The recently leaked screens from Gamestop supports what several analysts predicted: a $300 price point. Well, $299.99 to be exact, if you worry about pennies.



Of course, this pricing is subject to change, and isn’t official, but it does lend credence to what we may expect when this little beast arrives on the market. It’s also worthwhile to note that we can see what looks like a release date of 1/1/12, which is probably a place holder considering that Sony originally stated the new portable would see shelves by the holiday season of 2011. That leads to the thought the price may be a placeholder as well. However, if this is indeed the case, would you be ready to shell out the dough?
