Rumor: Current PS3 Games To Be Ported To NGP
Update: Oh, this is SO April Fool's. ;)
Original FALSE Story:
When the Next Generation Portable (NGP) was revealed, their tech presentation consisted of games like Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots running on the snazzy new portable.
We also know an Uncharted offering is coming to the PSP's successor, so maybe this rumor has some semblance of validity. Based on what we heard from one developer, it seems the NGP will be receptive to current PS3 games, in that current titles may be released - perhaps in digital format - for play on the new handheld. In fact, there seems to be the distinct possibility that future PS3 titles will be available on both Sony's flagship console and their portable device; i.e., the NGP would quite literally be a portable PS3. If you hadn't noticed, bigger and bigger products have been deliverable in digital form (take Mass Effect 2, for instance) and on top of that, the NGP has been rumored to be "just as powerful" as the PS3. So maybe we're looking at part of Sony's interactive future...
Don't know about you, but I wouldn't mind taking something like Resistance 3 or inFamous 2 on the road.
