Ooooh, could this mean the PSP2 is just around the corner? Perhaps...

No, it means the PhyreEngine is available for the PSP...

I don't know why Sony keeps adding to the PSP. Just give us the next one already!

I guess this is great for developers, since PhyreEngine, PSN games have increased and improved 10 fold.

If I remember rightly; isn't Burn Zombie Burn a PhyreEngine one?

alphakennybody3179d ago

I think so, Flower was using it too.

Cajun Chicken3179d ago

Yeah but BZB has an insane amount of enemies on the PS3 without any frame rate slowdown whilst having brilliant lighting and detailed models, if that's PE at work, then I'm really anticipating PE on PSP.

alphakennybody3179d ago

yeah but flower was quite a feat, the amount of individual leaf of grass and petals.

GDC started today? I thought it was coming next week? BAH!

This is great news. May be this will help put away the rumors that sony is going to abandon the PSP for the PSP2 instead. So it is great to see Sony still caring about the PSP. I wonder what new game will be made with the PhyreEngine. I hope to see some new IPs or revivals of some old classics that will use this engine.

It allows for fast porting PS3 to PSP games. Not sure if the engine is used in either LittleBigPlanet or ModNationRacer - but those were ported fast. PhyreEngine is a reference engine and part of Sony's SDK (AFAIK), even if not used directly, it might help cross ports.

It might be Sony's counter to the recent MS's cross platform announcement (Win/360/Phone7).

When are the big keynotes for GDC, id like to see what the big boys are going to be talking about. Im sure we will see something to do with their motion controllers and new engines.
