Epic demonstrates the possibilities of the Unreal engine running on Sony's upcoming handheld.
Wow the psp2 is amazing. I can't believe they ported that dungeon game in a week. The psp2 look easy to develop for and hopefully it cheap to make games for it. Now i really think sony gone to beat nintendo in the handheld market.
reasonable price and proper marketing will make it happen...
it'll probably be around $300-350. i assume its a lot like the ps3's hardware since they ported a ps3 game in a week.
was smart they make that uncharted a new game and release it with the system. this holiday and it could sell a few million psp2 and catch 3ds
Ok, I want.... Resistance: Fall of Man Resistance 2 Uncharted: Drakes Fortune Uncharted 2 Killzone 2 God of War 3 God of War Collection MGS 4 MGS Collection (hopefully) All of the ported to the NGP.
I can even notice volumetric rays coming through the leaves of trees. Not only NGP can run Unreal Engine 3 but it can run the HIGHEST version of it!
Yeah, those god rays were awesome. That's an effect you don't see on handhelds...at least not where they don't look like alpha mapped planes.
So much better graphics than 3DS omg :o
How could anyone disagree with this comment? Does Stevie Wonder lurk the N4G comments section?
My guess is the 1 week port was because it looks like it was a PSN game. I think that's great that PSN games will be easily ported since those are the kind of games a handheld needs. Hopefully you'll be able to move the ones you already have over the the device.
dellusion runs high. With an almost year head start, preorders sold out sony isnt beating nintendo in the handheld market especially with the software nintendo is touting....multiple million dollar sellers at launch (nintendogs,doa,dynasty warriors,ect) I remember when the psp was announced after the ds was and I am hearing alot of the same chest pounding stuff..............but look how that turned out I am buying both too
I have no doubt in my mind the NGP is far superior to the 3DS, sadly the above comment is true, in terms of sales the 3DS will blow it away. Me? I will be buying both on day 1.
Hit it on the nail Stealth20k. Perjos said exactly what I was going to say too.
Nintendo only expects to sell 5 million by years end. If sony can get a brand new uncharted,killzone, resistance on psp2 they could sell 5 million in 2 months with that line up
every console that launch gets sold out but like people said above me its not gonna out sale 3ds people usually buy handhelds for their kids plus 3rd party support nin handheld heavy one of the reasons y psp was so hard for people 2 buy
Once again, we are quibbling about purely sales when we should really be talking about increasing or improving foothold in the portable market. I highly doubt that Sony can dethrone the 20 yr. champ in Nintendo. But, they might be able to carve themselves a bigger, better niche and make and ruffle some feathers (much like MS has done). Sony sold 64 million PSP's (half of what DS sold). Maybe they increase to 80 million NGP's and close that gap. More importantly, gain some mind-share for further projects.
nintendo wants 4 million by the end of their fiscal year. sony better bring that line up. kids probably won't get 3ds at 250
Where have we seen that before...oh yeah, The Original PSP is ever better than the Wii...yet where it matters Nintendo wins. Why do people equate a particular game on a console and it's success, as if, it will equal the same on it's handheld counterpart? SPLIT Demographics. EPIC is really good at what they do. Simple fact. Anyone ever play Infinity Blade on Ipod touch? Great looking game.
i am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GETTING THIS... seeing that level of detail and anti aliasing on a handheld just makes me wonder wtf will next gen consoles be doing.. OH MY HEAD hurts. and hearing him mention porting console titles to ngp is sooo gonna rock hard..!! pay killzone or uncharted 2 with ps3 players online.. or dc universe.. as u go to whatever u are doing ... ppl wont have lives anymore.
Dungeon defenders is not ported. This game was designed for PS3, but Epic Games decided to move the same game to NGP and according to them, the game didn't loose any quality with NGP but still is in development.
Is it? It looked just like the iphone 4 demo of epic citidel to me. The graphics levels are about the same although uncharted was leaps and bounds above anything ive seen. This seems pretty powerful somewhwere between psp and the 360. Definately not ps3 level but its better than i thought and im saving money as we speak.
Yeah the PSP2 has no competition in the handheld market as far as graphics go. It's not even close. The graphics the PSP2 put out are basically on the level of the HD consoles, while the 3DS looks decidedly more last gen.
@mintBerry Crunch Proper Marketing? I got 2 words for ya KEVIN BUTLER!!!! ha ha at any rate a kevin butler spot for this would be hilarious BTW heres a joke for any KB twitter followers NGP has a game that from eBiK
It's not a PC ;) You are a PC guy, what do want a PSP2 anyway.
lol That's dumb. Handhelds are different than consoles. I'm a PC guy as well that owns 2 consoles. I've also owned every Nintendo handheld since the original GameBoy.
dont know why but the game they showed reminds me of DoTA somehow
I'm a PC guy who also happens to own a PS3. Haven't had a handheld since my Gameboy Color. Bout time that changed.
I dont think i had a had a handheld since gamegear. If the price is right i'll be getting this.
Panda want not-PC? Cow not understand. Panda no like not-PCs. [Insert neanderthalic console gamer grunting] It looks amazing. Somewhere between the 6th gen and 7th gen. That's pretty friggin' impressive. Anti-aliasing, post-processing effects, a big and detailed environment.....sheesh. 1:28 DAT LIGHTING EFFECT. People fear that with this power will come an unreasonable price, but in all fairness, the PSP looked between Ps1 and Ps2 when it launched. We'll just have to wait and see, and hope our fears are wrong (though keeping in mind subjectivity of the issue).
so this must be very very good! :P
Anti Aliasing?!?!?! On the Unreal Engine 3?!?!?! ON A HANDHELD?!?!?!
The best part about handhelds is that jaggies are inherently harder to see. The 5" lets a developer get away with stuff that would be much more obvious on a 46" television. Unreal's aliasing could be overkill :)
If games run at full res the pixel density will hide alot of aliasing, I cant wait to try this out
That looks almost like PS3 graphics (my opinion) INSANE!
yes, very close I think
No. Not these first few titles. Future NGP titles may hopefully look much better.
Thats what the Unreal Engine looks like on PS3. I wonder how much better that Uncharted game looks? :)
I actually dont want an UE3 game since most them look alike and it'll have small maps.
mobile elder scrolls would be awsome!!
>< why did you have to say that. :( 10months
dude you've been hitting the nail on the head with these game request for the psp2 today, a mobile elder scrolls or fallout would be awesome
What I was going to say lol. Either that, or Fallout >.>
haha omg. i thought the same thing
is this true :OOOOOOOOO zomggggggggggg,cummmmmmmmmmmm mmm
That is so crazy.. Makes me think what PS4 will have under the hood. @trounbyfire I agree Sony should def keep the cell and add some ram in. They've invested quite a bit of time and money into the cell and they will probably just improve on it for PS4.
i think the Ps3 need more ram and a new GPu sony should keep the cell becasue they make them and it would be cheap and i don't think the cell has been fully used yet. ad maybe move in box and some new hardware feature and you have a cheap ps4 i think if it cheap it will be best let nintendo and Microsoft have the expensive consoles next time trying to compete with sony
I think you hit the nail on the head. Right now I'd expect a beefed up Cell, or variant, with a brand new GPU and a crap load of XDR ram. It's that or they doing something completely new like they did with the PS3.
you know epic should a similair demo like this running on iphone 4?but psp version has more npc's,snow,and bigger city
Gears Of War on the PSP 2? :)
WARNING...WARNING... JIZZ OUTPUT AT MAXIMUM.
i hope BioWare comes out with a Mass Effect game for the PSP2
Spin offs only
Mass Effect 3 on PSP2? Sounds nice.
A scaled down mass effect game that would be nice it would have excellent gameplay + visuals.
Heh, very similar to Epic Citadel on the iPhone / iPod Touch.. Only, alot more higher quality overall.. Just look at those gorgeous god ray effects.. It's something you only see on high-tech benchmarking PC titles like Crysis. God rays through the tree branches.. etc.
They need to get rid of the Unreal Engine 3. It's in everything. It's like soylent green. To be honest, this does look good and it's only a tech demo. Imagine what this system will be able to pump out in five years.
Why the hell are all the audience members taking flash photography or a projector image...??? The results will be less than satisfactory.
i will more then likely get this i just hope sony supports it a lot better than the psp its not like they dont have the studios to do it. i heard the games will not be on umd's, anyone know what the games will be on? is it all dl like the pspgo? i wouldnt mind that even though i never got the pspgo. i just didnt like the price point for something that didnt upgrade from the psp like the psp2 clearly does.. $250 no more.... at $200 it would sell like crazy over the holidays but sony is known to ride on the early adapters at a high price so i wouldnt be surprised at a $300 tag, in that case i would wait like i did with the ps3..
@ Fallouts. SD cards have been confirmed for games.
0_o oohhhh..... what are sd cards? like the ds games?
SD cards are memory cards.
Pre ordered whatever that baby will be called :)! @Fallouts Sony have made cartages, but some stuff will be download only.
Epic might port bulletstorm for a qiuck buck since its now easier to port one game from another. HOLY S**T......ONE FRICKING WEEK. lol They just probably rip the ISO from the disc then put it in the PSP2. That's how easy it is. :)
and that's a FACT.
WOW...damn yo. I saw that and first thing that came to my mind was Elder Scrolls!!! I am gonna make sweet love to that psp2 once I get my hands on it.
