Sony PSP2 (NGP): List of Games Revealed so Far

By Posted 27 Jan 2011, 15:57

Following on from the huge reveal regarding Sony’s PSP2 handheld, aka the NGP ‘Next Generation Portable’ device, we now have a list of the software titles which will be coming to the new hardware, and the list is pretty impressive too.

No new hardware is complete with software, and Sony fully intends to make some of the software lineup for their NGP device perhaps better than the PS3 launch lineup.

To throw a bombshell out there straight away, Sony confirmed that the NGP will offer a portable version of popular PS3 franchise Uncharted, and judging by the demo shown at the event, it looks like the NGP version may be a remake of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the very first game in the franchise.

Other mammoth franchises on the way to Sony’s newest prized asset include a Killzone game, a Resistance title and of course, a LittleBigPlanet adventure too. Sony didn’t go into specifics on these so we don’t know if they are brand new games for the NGP, or just ports from existing games – hopefully we’ll find out soon.

You may have noticed that the games we’ve mentioned so far are all Sony’s own titles. The NGP will also get third-party support, as Capcom confirmed that a portable version of popular RPG Monster Hunter Portable 3rd will release at some point. Other titles include Dynasty Warriors, Lost Planet, Yakuza 4 and a Dungeon Defenders.

Sony obviously saved the best two reveals for last, as Activision confirmed that an NGP version of Call of Duty will also release at some point down the line. If that wasn’t enough, industry legend Hideo Kojima took to the stage and unveiled a tech demo of Metal Gear Solid 4 running on the NGP – teasing us of the system’s capabilties, although he didn’t actually reveal an upcoming title, yet.

You have to say, that is quite a generous list of titles that were announced as we wouldn’t have blamed Sony for keeping some of them under wraps until E3 this Summer, but we were left very satisfied after today’s event in Japan. Which title sticks out most for you? The thought of playing Call of Duty on the system, or using the new control schemes to tackle Uncharted?

We’ll update you when more games are announced – stay tuned.

    All those games seems to be PS3 ports. As a PS3 user I don't see the point of buying this PSP2 2 at lunch. I'll probably wait 1 year or two, when the price will be decent.

      why wait? you probably wont be able to get your hands on it once its release at E3 2011

      pre ordered mines 1/5/11

      those games aren't ports either… the companies are just testing the possibilities.
      Just don't understand why people are trying to kill this thing before its even born yet.
      Is it that intimidating Nintendo? U won't even speak a word in edgewise about it? but your fans furiously badge it like it raped their sisters?

      Keep beating around the bush, The NGP is gonna burn it down and reveal the true meaning of Gaming on the Go.

    • vicky

      where do buy it

  • Mike

    Hey Sam, have you considered buying the system at dinner time?

  • marhorn

    Who wants to carry round a phone in one pocket and a ngp (worst name ever) in the other? There never gonna get a return on the money put into this and for that reason IM OUT!

    • #1Lakerfan

      your out because you were never in
      NGP is not trying to imitate a cellphone, its a Gaming Device! and may i add "The Most impressive of its kind"

  • MAx

    NGP = Nintendo got pwned!

  • Nick

    This is going to be a fantastic product. I’ve had a Sony PSP since 2004 and I’ve bought about 30 games for it. I’ve loved the original system and to hear that have a new version called NGP or PSP2 is great! I can’t wait to see a Call of Duty title on it especially if it can have the online capabilitlies that the PS3 or 360 has. Plus, with graphics close to that of the PS3, it will be the ultimate gaming device on the go! I think they should bring back some old titles that we grew up on such as the Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Syphon Filter and other titles for this system as revamped up and improved new titles to bring players of all ages to the system.

    • #1Lakerfan

      I own a PSP3000 and im excited too, i want a NGP in ceramic white, with Wipeout HD, Uncharted and REZ relived (fingers crossed) and Child of Eden

      the NGP will be pumping out graphics the 3DS can only dream about…
      cant wait to see 2k12 on NGP!

    I agree with Nick. It would be the ultimate gaming device on the go. Too bad none of the western countries have the Sony internet play areas they have in Japan. I would rather have this than a PS3 to be honest. But they should also let indie game developers to also contribute there work much like Apple Itouch. I would want this because instead of having to stay on the couch to play the game. You can be anywhere; the toilet, around the house also when you are outside like the city of some sort (if you use 3G)

    I also had a Sony PSP since 2004 and have been playing since. NGP is not the definite name of it but a codename. It also has Graphics similar or even better than a PS3. It also has good RAM.

    And Marhorn, would you rather have a 3DS in you pocket instead of a PSP2? I'd rather have a PSP2 than a 3DS.

    I rest my case.

    Come on, seriously.

    You guys aren't even curious if it supports vibration? Or what is the actual technology of the display? Hopefully they will be revealed. Looks like you can't take out he battery for now.

    Most of the tech details are here:

    • d4rk

      Well, that's probably due to the previous PSP hacks. The Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick.

      Though… vibration on a small console wouldn't be the best; it'll be easier to drop it…

      • 0000000000

        It does support vibration i can wait till it comes out !

    • #1Lakerfan

      why don't you just get a vibrator?
      your mom has one…

  • john

    maybe they will get mw2 for it

  • Adam

    I wish They had GTA IV or something like that for NGP….and I think most of the people aggree with me__Everybody dreams about GTA on the go (with murder graphics)__

  • zygimantas
