Another PS3 title will be heading to the NGP – this time its Hustle Kings. When Hustle Kings came out for PS3 in late 2009, it was lauded for its visuals. And for good reason – it’s the finest looking billiards game ever created. This time, Hustle Kings for NGP will feature not only great visuals, but also the integration of touchscreen controls.
Super Stardust makes it way to Sony’s upcoming portable console, and it’s going to be a blast thanks to the NGP’s dual analog sticks (a portable first!). Super Stardust Delta should feel instantly familiar to anyone who’s experienced Super Stardust HD on PS3. But it’s important to note – Delta is not a port of that 2007 classic. It’s an entirely new game.
Sony has confirmed that its upcoming next generation portable (or NGP) will offer full backwards compatibility support with all the PSP games available in the PlayStation Network library. Scott Rohde, SCEA’s VP of Product Development, revealed the news at Sony’s Press Event earlier today.
Since NGP, or next generation portable gaming system, was announced back in January, I know you have been itching to find out more about the hardware and the games. Sony has lifted the lid on several NGP titles which are currently in development. Check out the list below…
Recent rumors suggest that NGP won’t be the final name of Sony’s new portable console. A story by Games Pundit, claims that Sony’s NGP will actually be called ‘PS Vita’ – Vita is Latin/Italian for ‘life’. Naturally, Sony haven’t confirmed the news (lets wait until E3 for official confirmation), so for now, this is filed under the rumor category.
Watch the official announcement of the NGP console in full HD quality, which was held in Japan last week. The new Sony portable console was revealed at The PlayStation Meeting 2011, and included footage from the Uncharted PSP title and Call of Duty. The video is divided into six parts for your viewing pleasure.
