Hideo Kojima: "On NGP, we can enjoy the same quality as PS3."

During the Playstation Meet, Hideo Kojima took the stage to show off some footage of MGS4. This footage was a direct export from the PS3. Here is what Kojima has to say about NGP:

How about Peace Walker remake using the MGS4 engine with new mechanics for the NGP.

I'd prefer MGS5 or a new IP. Either way, it seems the next Kojima project will either be exclusive to the Playstation line, or Sony will be getting the definitive version.

@newmonday Yeah, the possibilities for Sony and the devs are awesome. Being able to release games on both platforms (with uniques features taking advantage of the NGP hardware) effectively lowers development costs. I can see how this synergy could seem very attractive to devs, especially as indie devs can make mobile games that NGP users can also play. I just hope that the new UI gets released on PS3 the day NGP comes out.

Looks like the "NGP" will solve a big problem for Japan developers, and that problem is most Japanese play portables and living room consoles in the west.

But now games can be simultaneously developed for the PS3 and NGP, it could be as simple as downscaling like in PC games, the Capcom guy said the LP2 demo was made in 2 weeks.

I hope this means we will see more RPGs now on the PS3, I also hope we can use the same saves and PSN account on the NGP.

uncharted, killzone, resistance, cod (unfortunately it sells). mgs, OH MY also other studios gonna include assassins creed, gta etc.... OMFG

Kojima said he will talk more at e3. maybe a new mgs game where you can play on ps3 and then continue on psp.

"This game used the model data and environments from PS3, and it was exported directly to NGP"

This doesn't confirm MGS4 will be ported on the NGP but it shows that its engine can run without constraints on it and Kojima promised to show planned games for it in this E3!

Edit:7:34AM Hideo envisions using the exact same game on the PS3 and the NGP. You play the game on your PS3 at home, and out and about you play the same game and same save on your NGP. A beautiful dream, indeed. "This dream is going to come true in the near future, and right now I'm working on this project. I'm sorry right now I can't disclose further information, but I'd like to present what we're doing at E3."

"You play the game on your PS3 at home, and out and about you play the same game and same save on your NGP"

That would be incredible if it does indeed happen. But question begs that if you buy the title for the PS3 do you have to buy it on the NGP? Or will sony via the PSN allow you to register your PS3 copy then download the NGP version. Thats a great way to get people to buy new copies. With a new copy you can download the game free on the NGP and with a used one you cant.

That's just amazing! It's like PS3 on the go with motion sensors and all! Wow! Sony has literally out done themselves with this neat little device!

If Hideo said this and has messed around with it, you know NGP has some serious potential!

xAlmostPro2395d ago

rising would be awesome :P it would also be a great way to showcase how powerful it is against current gen home consoles :) (i know its not as powerful as the ps3, but it would still show how beastly it is)

ps3rider2395d ago

He always preferred portable games.

jizzyjones2395d ago (Edited 2395d ago )

I watched it, he said 'eventually you will be able to play ps3 game at home, then continue on on NGP on the move'

BOOM SOLD.

EYEamNUMBER12395d ago

he actually didn't really say that ya know

"This dream is going to come true in the near future"

how you interpret that is completely up to you

Hoje03082395d ago

Really, is that why the live blogs quoted him as saying his next project which will fulfill this dream will be unveiled at E3? Strange, that.

EYEamNUMBER12395d ago

i actually didn't catch that part

saint_john_paul_ii2395d ago

it looks like he is pushing for cloud save games on the PSN as well. a feature that i we wanted on the PS3 for a while. can it be that sony is trying to push this as well?
