If Its So Easy For Sony To Port Games To The NGP then does that not mean that they could easily port every single good game that came out on the PS3 to the NGP? this way you really will be taking your games on the go.
I'm sure Sony will be porting the more popular games on the NGP. Damn imagine Mirror's Edge on the NGP with trophies.
Mirror's Edge wasn't that popular though. I don't think it sold very well. I just loved it though. The athmosphere is awesome in that game. If you haven't played it you are missig out.
As much as I'd love to see this happen, I wouldn't like to download blu-ray sized games for my NGP. I'd need to have a 1tb hard drive in there to be able to store afew games! lol
PS3 ports wouldn't be anywhere near their original size on the NGP. The quality of visual assets would be significantly reduced with little impact on overall visual quality thanks to the reduced screen resolution. The LPCM audio would be changed to compressed stereo and cutscenes would be significantly compressed aswell like ff13 on 360.
well with a smaller-lower res screen you dont need as high res videos or textures, or hell the audio can be far more compressed. all that equals less strict space requirements
I can't wait to get it day one. And just test out everything and play with everything that the NGP will have at the time.
MW2 will release this Nov on PS3, Xbox, and NGP and they will all look the same, and the NGP and PS3 versions will be compadible to transfer your career and you can play across platforms. Funny.
One of the things this means is that developers can produce titles for the PS3 and have the NGP version for almost nothing. This is a massive attraction for developers and publishers and will lead to a great many Sony exclusive versions and features to include unique interoperability between the PS3 and NGP.
Wait i dont understand. You cant have ps3 games without "THE CELL" and they cant fit on anything other than bluray right? Small size kills games and is the downfall of gaming right? If this can run ps3 games without the cell , gasp , couldnt a pc or the 360? Wont this compromise ps3 games because theyre developing for ps3 and this making ps3 games smaller and of lower standards? LOl......
Nowadays, you can get 10GB memory sticks and since many games don't utilize that much memory. Even LESS when it's compressed into a smaller screen. I really hope we could utilize the innovations on the touch screen/gyroscopes to make a unique experience. -End of Line
there is no way this can be true, i cannot see games like just cause 2 and fallout on this hardware without some problems. what do u think?
So let me get this straight; you are happy to buy effectively the same game, twice?
Playing mass effect 2 in the train or airplaine would be a dream come true.
Amen to that
finally to be able to use two analog sticks on the go is. I hope they implement L3 and R3.
they are full on analog sticks. they are not nubs like on the psp. so yes it will have l3 and r3
Hopefully they also use the back touchpad to implement L2 and R2 buttons as well. :) Would be good for when they put PS2 Classics on PSN for use on NGP and PS3. It's gonna happen evetually. My first PS2 classic will be GTA San Andreas!!!
I expect for fps they will change it so that l1 & r1 are aim and shoot, and the back track pad will b for granades etc... Imagine using the track pad to aim granades!
This could be the real 3DS killer and help Sony's position in the handheld market by allowing cross platform play and only charging for one copy.
maybe a special edition for new games that will include both???
i really hope that it does happen. They can attach the game to your PSN account which would work. Be cool to play the game a bit on the PS3 then transfer the save and continue playing it on the go. Its very easy to do i only hope that sony does it though.
With cloud saving no need to transfer the saves. Think of the possibilities :)
I can imagine that GTA4 on the NGP would be great. Or demon souls would be fantastic as well.
Future games maybe... Their wouldnt release old games people already paid for and played... Nobodies gonna pay for them again... I wouldnt
People are going to buy Orcania of time again and by the boat loads. So i dont see where your point is
Sony wont port to much because it will take away from the sales of the PS3
Why would that matter? They'd make the money one or the other way.
Can't wait to play Pocket Fighter from my pocket :D
All (!) UE3 games. Epic demoed it. Depends on the customization. But it should be possible to simply recompile.
they should put a code on the disc of the game to port it on the NGP ... that's the perfect thing , it won't effict anything , it's for free but only use once ...
Why is anyone giving this site hits? Did they really just make a post claiming, "If it's easy to port PS3 games to the NGP, will we see PS3 games on the NGP?" Profound.
If this is true that means twice the games for the NGP. The games made especially for it and PS3 games ported ocer to it. Add in Minis and PSN games and you have gaming heaven on the go with dual joysticks. I think I might have give up a kidney for this one. After all I have two, right?
is all the HD remakes ported.
i know they will port over a few of the popular games but sony said they wanted games that fit with the NGP, not just games for gamesake. and i think the games that will be ported to NGP will be new games in those franchises, well i hope so. Dead Space on it would be awesome.
I love how these three-sentence articles that say absolutely nothing are constantly approved on N4G.
another retard article sony said themselves that they are discouraging and even forbidding ports because it adds no value new original games is where its at for them
Gimmi uncharted and im good
I think people are under the impression that Killzone, Resistance, and Uncharted on the PSP2 are simply ports of their PS3 versions. It's been said time and time again that they are new entries in the series. Sure, they can do straight up ports, but I'd much rather have these new entries, kind of like how GoW: Chains and Ghost, MGS: Portable Ops, and Peacewalker, Kingdom Hearts: BBS, and LBP weren't ports, just new entries in the franchises. I wouldn't mind seeing upgraded versions of some of the more popular PSP titles, though. Give us a remake of FF: Crisis Core and Dissidia with updated controls (dual analog sticks would simply change the way those two games are played) and visuals (take advantage of some of the new lighting and shader capabilities). I wouldn't mind seeing certain PS2 classics being brought to the PSP2 (like the HD remaster collections released so far). There is going to be a lot more original content than people are giving the machine credit for. No one ever seems to complain when Nintendo brings the Mario, Zelda, and Metroid series to their handhelds, but the moment Sony wants to bring THEIR top dog franchises (Killzone, Uncharted, LBP, even Gran Turismo could be done justice on the PSP2, although I did really like the PSP version), people want to bitch and complain. I LOVE being able to play my favorite franchises on the go. Thanks to the dual analog sticks, horsepower, and other features the PSP2 has, you can have portable versions of every major franchise out there: Dead Space, Red Dead, Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Uncharted, Killzone, etc. Those types of games simply weren't possible on previous handheld machines, and people want to COMPLAIN? This device could very well change the way we perceive handheld gaming. Hell, people thought putting a CD player in the PlayStation was a radical idea back then. Their brains would explode if we told them the feature set of TODAY'S consoles and handhelds. It's even possible to bring MMO's like Free Realms and DCUO to the PSP2 (specific versions of each, of course, maybe like Guild Wars; have players meet in a "lobby," ie, the various safehouses in DCUO, form a party, then venture into the world together; that should reduce major lag, but then again, you could simply reduce some of the graphical assets and it'd run really smooth. The visuals are already rather streamlined to begin with). The possibilities of this handheld are pretty staggering. We need to re-evaluate what a handheld is. We are still viewing the machine like it's just "another PSP," when everything we've been told about the handheld so far is NOTHING like the original PSP.
Well said! I bubbled u up lol
does this thing have l2 and r2 buttons? just a question.... cause dont many games use them?
It doesn't have L2 and R2 buttons, but the touch pad on the back could easily be programmed to respond like the L2 and R2 buttons, by simply requiring the player to swipe a finger, or tap the touchpad. Not many games use the L2 and R2 buttons in any significant way. Or they'll only use one of the two (Dragon Age uses the L2 button to bring up the Radial Menu). Overall, the functionality of the PSP2 outclasses the functionality of it's predecessor as far as input devices go. It has the directional pad, it has the four face buttons, it has the L1 and R1 buttons, it has the touchscreen, it has the rear touch pad, and it has dual analog STICKS (not nubs, like the original PSP). It has all it's input bases covered. The lack of an L2 and R2 button could be addressed in many of the other available input methods. @Chitown: Thanks!
