New NGP Video Zooms In On Games

When the NGP was announced, we saw the first promotional trailer. It was slick but it didn't really show us much of the unit in question.

To get a better look, check out the newly released video below. It gives you a chance to see some of the games, along with the new touch functionality; you also might notice the use of motion-sensing Sixaxis controls, too. There's a new Hot Shots, along with a game called Gravity Daze, the Killzone adaptation for the NGP, Reality Fighters, Broken, Little Deviants, Wipeout, and oh yeah, Uncharted.

So, what do you think? It's a lot of high-definition portable goodness, yes? It seems they really are planning to release plenty of titles to go along with the device's launch, and the list of supporting developers and designers is impressive. All that's left now is to determine an exact date and price...let's just hope Sony doesn't go too nuts with the latter.

Looks awesome. Although I have seen this trailer before, they were not so clear. Can't wait for this to release.

Gravity Daze looks interesting too.

Come to think of it. Who exactly is developing Gravity Daze anyway?

I know that. But Sony Computer Entertainment as I'm sure everyone here already knows has a number of internal first party development studios. What I would like to know is which one is handling it.

NGP for me! D1P!

Sony is attacking in all directions. PS3 momentum is high. Monster 2011 Exclusives. PSPhone. PSsuite for Android and other platforms. Steam!

Playstation brand is on a roll!

On a roll crushing everything in its path. With this much saturation though it might have another slow start, but we all know Sony is the king of finishing what it starts so there's no need to worry.

Sony has definitely improved their playstation ads. No more freaky babies or ads like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psd8oVToS8k

The freaky baby ads and such would not have been so bad if they were not the only ones that SONY created. If they would have coupled them with more mainstream ones it would have balanced the demographic.

This vid gave me the goosebumps! And very nice music selection for the ad. Anyone know the title of the song?

Did you notice how moving the unit up or down changed the camera angle in Hot Shots? I'm pretty sure it uses camera tracking via the rear mounted camera. Same technology I think they should use for a portable Fatal Frame game!

Dude. Wow. Seriously buying one of these the day it comes out. I may actually pre-order on to make sure I don't have to wait for a second shipment. Those games look amazing, the touch screen and pad look very innovative, the accelerometer aspect to control is awesome. There is nothing about this that doesn't scream "Buy me now!"

It all depends on the battery life for me. If it's 6-8 hours, I'm SOLD! I maybe dreaming though

I'm hoping that it has good battery life, but honestly I probably wouldn't be able to use it for lengths of time that would make me upset with a 3-4 hour battery life. It would more over be for playing during lunch break at work or in between classes.

Gravity Daze looks amazing(just from what I could see. Definitely need to look into it more). I love the cel-shaded look to the Killzone game and Uncharted made me soil myself.

One NGP to go plz!

That hustle kings game looks nice. I love playing pool, now that I'm mentioning about it, my nickname use to be sharky, I was pretty damn good in junior high. And of course the rest looked nice.

That screen looks like it's bigger than 5-inches diagonal. Is it actually 5-inches wide?

I was thinking the same thing. It looks like it's 6-7 inch screen. Maybe it's the width that made the illusion.

I think it's the hands themselves. The first 'gamer' holding the unit appears to be female (judging from the hands appearance and finger nails). Of course women generally have smaller hands and more slender fingers. So the unit will look bigger in the hands of a woman.

Still, I wonder about the span of the unit, that screen looks gorgeous regardless.

Any word on what they're going to call it? Because I doubt they will go with PSP2, my bet is something more like PSPEvolved or something where they give it a name not a number.

PSP 360?

I joke, but I think that's why they're reluctant to use "PSP 2", for the same reason M$ didn't want the Xbox "2" to be compared to the PS "3".

Sony want to emphasize the power of the NGP, that it is closer to a PS3 than a PS2.

So, I would agree that they are trying to develop a name element rather than a number for the NGP.

That looks insane. Uncharted, Killzone, Resistance, and that Gravity Daze all look brilliant. I just hope we get new stories in the Uncharted, Killzone, and Resistance games, and not just ports of existing games for the PS3.

looks really cool, though i cant stop thinking do we really need this?
will be interesting to see how well this thing sells.
i hope theres heaps of other features going with it other than HD games and trophies, because to be honest i cant see that being enough of a hook to people.
i really dont need better looking portable games, i mean look at dead space on the Iphone 4 it looks freaking amazing!
not freaking amazing for a phone game, but freaking amazing for a game full stop no matter what system!
i just look at that, and think do i really need to shell out 400+ bucks for something thats going to offer me better looking games?
ATM the answers no, so i hope sonys got allot of other tricks up there sleeve for the NGP other than HD games, otherwise i cant see this thing doing too well.
