Guerrilla: NGP Has Potential To "Dominate Portables"
While the Nintendo 3DS is expected to once again be king of the portable gaming world, one developer says the Next Generation Portable might surprise everyone.
Killzone 3 lead multiplayer designer Martin Connor told CVG that Guerrilla is excited about Sony's new handheld effort, and that the announcement wasn't "underwhelming" at all. Said Connor:
"Some announcements for some of the handhelds in the past - and I'm not just talking about Sony handhelds, any handhelds - sometimes it can be a little bit underwhelming. But this one, everybody's appetite is whetted. We're all really looking forward to it.
It's probably important, because of the 3DS announcement, that we have something that can not only compete but can go on to dominate the portable market and I think with NGP that's exactly what we've got."
You probably already know, but a Killzone iteration is in the works for the NGP; you can catch a glimpse of it in that newly released video. It looks pretty damn good, as do many of the other titles on brief display. But can the NGP really take down the 3DS...? That seems like a tall order but then again, the technology - and hopefully, the games - will be there, so...
