GameInformer: Uncharted NGP Preview: Golden Abyss Is Just As Big As Its PS3 Siblings

GameInformer: "Uncharted: Golden Abyss is hands-down the showcase title for Sony’s powerful new portable system. With its crisp visuals and seemingly solid translation of the series’ gameplay mechanics, hardcore Uncharted fans won’t want to miss out on this adventure. That said, it’s also a good illustration of one of the PSP’s problems and what could be a potential issue for NGP: Why would I rather play this game on a handheld than at home on my nice HDTV?

In fact, given the inclusion of an HDMI output on the new device, it’s entirely likely that I will play it on my TV. That’s certainly not a condemnation of the NGP, but hopefully Sony can continue to deliver games that are custom-built to be consumed on the go in addition to smaller versions of their console hits."

"In fact, given the inclusion of an HDMI output on the new device, it’s entirely likely that I will play it on my TV"

so I'm free to do what I want when I want.
now I can play a little maybe on the train going to work. get home and plug into the TV when I want the big screen

Uncharted: Golden Abyss is hands-down the showcase title for Sony’s powerful new portable system. With its crisp visuals and seemingly solid translation of the series’ gameplay mechanics, hardcore Uncharted fans won’t want to miss out on this adventure. That said, it’s also a good illustration of one of the PSP’s problems and what could be a potential issue for NGP: Why would I rather play this game on a handheld than at home on my nice HDTV? In fact, given the inclusion of an HDMI output on the new device, it’s entirely likely that I will play it on my TV. [UPDATE: Sony has confirmed that the NGP will not have an HDMI out as I originally thought. The units I used at the event featured this, but that's because they were dev units. It will not be part of the final, retail NGP.]

With all due respect to Sony implementing the amazing 5" OLED touch screen which I know will do justice to Uncharted's:GA 720p HD graphics having the HD video out put could have made the NGP the ultimate portable/home gaming device of all time.
