To drive home the point that NGP is like a game console that goes with you, what could be better than Sony's bombastic summer-blockbuster action game series, Uncharted? In the continuing adventures of tomb raider Nathan Drake, he'll shoot it out with angry rivals and climb into, on and around ancient ruins in his quest for buried treasure.
In Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a great deal of that will be done through the NGP's two touch interfaces, one on the OLED screen and one on the reverse of the unit. The demo included lots of touching. Things kicked off with a fistfight in which fist and arrow icons appeared on the screen, and I could tap the screen to punch an enemy or swipe upward to kick him in the crotch.
