NGP Software Lineup Detailed
Uncharted, Call Of Duty, LBP, Killzone and Resistance among initial announcements at Tokyo launch event.
As you’ve already read, Sony has announced its PSP successor, NGP, will be out before the end of the year. At the launch event in Tokyo, an initial lineup of games was revealed.
Heading the list is Naughty Dog’s Uncharted, which makes use of a number of NGP’s wide variety of control options. The touch panels can be used to push Drake over obstacles, attack enemies and control him during climbing sections. Tilt controls build momentum on hanging ropes and can be used to aim weapons. Fans of traditional controls can use the twin sticks and face buttons in what looks a reasonable facsimile of the PS3 games.
Also announced were versions of LittleBigPlanet, Hot Shots Golf, Killzone, WipeOut, Resistance, Monster Hunter, Dynasty Warriors, and Call Of Duty.
In addition several tech demos were shown displaying cutscenes from PS3 games running on NGP. Hideo Kojima showed a Metal Gear Solid 4 scene that he said was exported from the PS3 and rendered in real-time, albeit only at 20 frames per second.
Scenes from Lost Planet 2 – Capcom is porting its NT Framework to NGP – were also shown, as were Yakuza Of The End, Dungeon Defenders and Epic Games’ Epic Citadel, running on the developer’s Unreal Engine 3.
