Call it the NGP, call it the PSP2. Regardless of what name ends up gracing the box, Sony’s recently debuted wunderkin handheld has already stolen the attention of fans and media alike since its unveiling last week. We know the majority of the specs now, which give us an idea of the potential, but reading that it has a quad-core ARM processor and an OLED screen are not the same as actually seeing the thing in action.
In the clip below, the NGP shows off a handful of what are going to be launch titles for the device. The games featured in the clip include (most are working titles): Hot Shots Golf Next, Gravity Daze, Killzone, Hustle Kings, Reality Fighters, Smart As, Broken, Little Big Planet, Little Deviants, WipEout, Resistance and Uncharted. It isn’t clear if the games that are already PS3 titles, such as Little Big Planet and Uncharted are ports of their console counterparts, or it the titles are new entries into the respective franchises. The only other launch title that has been announced but was not featured is an upcoming Call of Duty title.
It is hard to take away too much from the video, but the graphics seem to fall between PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 standards. Again, until we have a better hands on look at the device in action, it is hard to say. Regardless, the NGP is shaping up to be an impressive device.
