Sony Reveals the Next Generation Portable Console 244

UgLyPuNk writes "Of course it's not called the PSP2, because that would be too obvious and straightforward for the games industry. For the moment, at least, you'll be looking forward to news about the NGP – the Next Generation Portable." ARM® Cortex-A9 core (4 core), SGX543MP4+, Front and Rear camera. Rear touch pad, GPS.

    I think the same thing was said about the DS

    Here's the thing - I own a PSP. Guess what kinds of games I play on it? Puzzle games, short-attention-span games, platformers. I've played the hell out of PixelJunk Monsters [youtube.com] and Lumines. [youtube.com] Daxter [youtube.com] and Loco Roco [youtube.com] were each a ton of fun, but honestly was probably the limit for what my attention could bring to a portable device.

    Basically, I play this thing when I ride the bus to work. Anything that can be done in short spurts works great.

    They're talking about putting some big titles on the "NGP" - Killzone, Resistance, Uncharted. Those are awesome PS3 titles, don't get me wrong. But I just don't know that I'd play them on a portable device. My tastes differ when I'm on the go. A lot of that power will be wasted on me.

    Hopefully, someone will come up with a witty game that really takes advantage of the "NGP" without aiming for a port from a PS3 franchise.

The best book on programming for the layman is "Alice in Wonderland"; but that's because it's the best book on anything for the layman.
