Kojima on Sony NGP and PS3 Quality Games

By Tina Chubb - Jan 30, 2011

Sony’s PlayStation Portable 2 – or Next Generation Portable (NGP) as it is also known – has been creating quite a buzz in the world of gaming for quite some time now, even before it was officially announced during the recent PlayStation Meeting in Japan.

Besides revealing the impressive specs for the NGP, Sony also announced the line-up of games that will be available for the upcoming handheld device. As Alan NG previously reported, this will include portable versions of the PlayStation 3’s Uncharted and Call of Duty.

One of the most interesting reveals of them all however, was the one that came from Hideo Kojima of Konami Digital Entertainment. Kojima – creator and director of the Metal Gear Solid series – unveiled a tech demo, which showed Metal Gear Solid 4 running on the NGP.

As Debabrata Nath over at gamingbolt.com recently reported, Kojima unveiled the Metal Gear Solid 4 demo in order to prove to everyone that it is possible to develop PlayStation 3 quality games for the Next Generation Portable. You can watch Kojima’s speech via the playstation.com website.

However, as Kojima noted on the video, he wasn’t there to confirm that the Metal Gear Solid 4 game would be ported over to the NGP. What do you think about the possibility of being able to play PS3 quality titles on the NGP? Would you be happy to see an NGP version of MGS4 released?

    a little bit off topic: but I'd just be happy with MGS 2: Sons of Liberty remastered in 3D on the 3DS!

    How about proting PSXs Metal Gear Solid or GC MGS Twin Snakes (to me, the Best MG game ever created) for the NGP. I would buy 2 NGPs just for that game.

    how about, rather than a port of an already fairly aged game, porting over MGS rising, a newer title? Kojima talked about his dream of making a game for the PS3 that you could turn off and take with you on the go on the NGP, could MGS rising be that title? Sony could even market a dual platform title for a little extra cash giving users the ability to genuinely take their game with them on the go.

    there is also the possibility of the newly rumored MGS HD collection?? another great option for Kojima productions to pursue.

    better yet, how about a brand new MGS title exclusive to the NGP? perhaps a sequel to snake eater, or a prequel to Rising?? i cant help be think that the new touch screen controls could be utilised for Raidens katana. all that we can do is wait with baited breath of Kojima at E3 this year.
