I worry about Sony's new PSP. After the shock of the impressive visuals of Sony's next-generation portable, the PlayStation Vita, had become familiar, after the pleasant surprise of the new handheld's price settled in ($249 USD, the launch price of a PSPgo), I started thinking about the harsher realities of the Vita.…
The announcement last week that AT&T will be the exclusive 3G provider for the hot new PlayStation Vita did not go down well.
Uncharted Golden Abyss is the best reason, but certainly not the only one, to buy Sony's still-codenamed Next Generation Portable. [Read our impressions]
While Sony wowed the crowds with the quality of the NGP's graphics at the handheld's unveiling last year in Tokyo, this clip may give us a more realistic idea of what to expect from the PSP's successor.
We've been asked by the people behind PlayStation to save the date. June 6, 5pm Pacific. Los Angeles. That's when their big E3 press conference will happen. That's when we'll probably find out about the biggest and best gaming plans for the PS3 and NGP, at least for the next year.
The launch of Sony's next PlayStation Portable, currently codenamed NGP, may not be a global affair this year, in part due to the massive Tōhoku earthquake and deadly tsunami that slammed Japan last month.
Insomniac Games, creators of PlayStation staples Ratchet & Clank and Resistance, say they'll continue to stick to console games for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but not the next PlayStation Portable, Sony's NGP.
Sony brought one of the most dazzling games for its new NGP system, Uncharted, to its talk at GDC 2011. While we've seen some of this gameplay before, even shaky cam footage that doesn't capture the NGP's big, bright OLED screen is exciting.
The next PlayStation Portable, Sony's recently announced NGP, won't rival the PlayStation 3 in terms of raw computing power, despite its impressively good looks. Sony engineers say the NGP instead sits about "halfway" between the original PSP and PS3.
As we saw when the product was first unveiled, Sony's upcoming NGP won't be using the company's trademark "XMB" user interface. It'll be using something new. Why is that, Sony?
Sony's Next Generation Portable sounds like a portable gaming machine powerful enough to replace the Playstation 3 home console, but it's actually meant to augment the experience, Sony Entertainment of America president Jack Tretton says.
Launched earlier this week, Sony's hefty NGP already has quite a number of game developer fans. Among them is the company behind Gears of War, Unreal Tournament and Bulletstorm.
Today, Sony is on the handheld gaming campaign trail, preparing for us to vote with our dollars this fall. Should you buy an NGP — the successor to the PSP — in late 2011?
Kotaku commenter Truthtellah was really excited about the 3DS. Now that Sony has outed it's Next Generation Portable, he's a bit less excited. Did Sony steal some wind from Nintendo's sails? That's your topic for today's Speak-Up on Kotaku.
Sony's Next Generation Portable has a lot of fancy, no doubt expensive new equipment inside it. And you know what? None of it matters. Why? Because the thing has two thumbsticks.
Ever since the release of the PSP in 2004, Sony has made the "XMB" its trademark user interface, not just for PlayStation products, but many of its other devices as well. With the NGP, the XMB is out the window.
And not all of them will have 3G connectivity, it seems.
The unveiling of Sony's Playstation Portable replacement, the NGP, came with one slick, game-packed video showing off a dozen or so games on the device.
