Why do I get the impression that the PSP shot is just lifted from a close up of an off cam video.

Bloody German sites using the same one shot of the PSP uncharted against three different PS3 shots.

Seems like no real screenshots exist for the PSP version.

The PSP2 is so powerful, that it can only rival it's older brother...the PlayStation 3.

inveni02822d ago

No real screenshot, but NGP is looking good. The only place I can really tell a difference is in resolution and aliasing.

the psp2 is gohan, ps3 goku

HappyGaming2822d ago

+ When you are actually going to play the NGP it will be on a 5 inch screen.

This images are from cameras and they have been stretched quit a bit.

Makes you wonder what PS4 will be able to achieve! I mean if they can pull a PS3 on a portable device, God help us all! The next generation is going to be mind blowing!

RyuCloudStrife2822d ago

hit the nail in the head thats no PSP2 screenshot...

TheLastGuardian2822d ago

Not quite on the same level as the PS3 but it's pretty damn close. So impressive for a handheld to be pulling off better graphics than the 360.

Shepherd 2142821d ago

You are insane. It looks good for a handheld but it still isnt as good as 360 graphics. Your just blind fanboy who makes absurd claims and makes yourself look dumb.

Gero2822d ago I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

ReBurn2822d ago

This is getting silly. Still, what I've seen looks good.

DigitalAnalog2821d ago (Edited 2821d ago )

Yes. But don't forget this is because it doesn't produce the amount of pixels the PS3 does on TV. It doesn't equate themselves on a full PS3 level but having the same quality on a 1:2 ratio.

Even if these were good screenshots it's not exactly fair to compare a 3 year old PS3 game to a game that was just made on PSP2.

Impressive for a handheld.

peeps2822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

Not a great comparison considering the resolutions are incorrect + you'll only be playing the psp version on a 5" screen.

The shots of the game on psp look impressive when you take this into consideration. It's like when I view standard quality tv channels on my 37" bravia, but when I view PAP with them displayed in a much smaller window the detail looks amazing

multipayer2822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

The resolution of the PS3 screenshot is scaled down for the comparison, so it actually is pretty fair. Anyones guess how the psp2 version stacks up, but it looks like it could range from slightly worse to far worse "Wii" quality. Fine for a handheld I guess.

Awookie2821d ago

Upscaling and downscaling don't cancel each other.... idiot

multipayer2821d ago

Lol, what do you think happens when something is resized smaller. It doesn't maintain the integrity of a high resolution picture, you fail.

Awookie2821d ago

It makes the pixels SMALLER meaning a crisper picture u obviously don't know anything about resolution

multipayer2821d ago

Uhhg, look I even have a tab in the graphics card menu of my computer called "Scaling Options".. It is where I adjust the overscan and underscan of my TV, my resolution is 1920x1080, what do you think happens when I make the picture smaller... Do my pixels get smaller?

Anyway, you trolled me good. I just wanted to say the PS3 screenshots in the article weren't HD either... you didn't have to recite literature from your TV manual...

Where is Lens of Truth when you need it. /s

Snake-eater2822d ago

hiding behind a pointless multiplatform comparison

TheTruth892822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

both looks amazing! but PS3 = 1080p or 720p
PSP = 960x544

Anyway, both pwn 360 :D

CobraKai2822d ago

If you think about it, on a small screen, the PSP resolution should look like on the go HD right?

clearelite2822d ago (Edited 2822d ago )

Pretty much and since it's OLED, it will probably look better than games on a lot of HDTVs. A crappy HDTV and make even the prettiest game look mediocre, whereas the OLED will make great looking games look unbelievable.

High definition does not always equal high quality.


Well we can't call it HD as this don't display 720p images, but 544p... Still if we consider it's size, the image quality is more detailed than we can get in such small area from most full HD screens.

If you look at a full HD display that is a 2,073,600 pixels. If we think of an small TV of 22", those are really smal pixels. In a 16*9 section of this monitor with a 5" diagonal it carries roughly 471,272 pixels. NGP 5" screen have 522,240 pixels.

This doesn't mean technically better than HD displays, as any full image will be displayed in under than HD resolution on NGP, but on a screen that small, this mean way less pixelation will be visible, specially if compared to big 1080p screens (32" and up). Although current tech could be used to make bigger TVs 2 or 3 better in resolution, the OLED tech used in NGP could make a 40" display with resolution as high as 4352p. That's a really nice tiny screen.

Your comment begins nice, but then you took the idiot route.

Ifone2821d ago (Edited 2821d ago )

Only for xbox fans who like disagreeing with facts (look at the dumb disagree here, each time people bring 360 in the comparison :))

[email protected] LMS's joke "it will surpass on my iphone look better than 90% of the next grns [email protected] : ridiculous, not a single game is on par with a wii game, and don't forget the power you need to use your console with a 1080 tv....ps3 is 5 yezrs okd, but had 4, 5 years advznce on pc, and if you use it on an iphone screen, it would be photoreality..
