Sony Confirms PS3 Game NGP Ports Will Be Simple and Quick

Sponsored Links
202w ago - According to Edge Magazine via CVG, Sony's Shuhei Yoshida has confirmed that PS3 game ports to NGP (Next Generation Portable) will be both simple and quick for developers.

To quote: Today, many teams are familiar with the PS3 and are used to including a variety of effects in their titles.

"Based on this expertise - and also the working habits they developed working on the PS3 - we had to make development on the NGP as natural as possible - an extension of the PS3, if you will.

"So the three demos you've seen - Lost Planet 2, Ryu Ga Gotoku [Yakuza] and MGS4 - they prove porting is simple and quick, but it doesn't mean that's all you can expect. My view of NGP isn't just as a platform for porting PS3 titles."

I'm always looking forward to seeing titles that have a great story attached, as well as a very interactive multiplayer experience. I think titles like, gta, call of duty, metal gear solid, uncharted, an gran turismo, will offer that. That the system would be open to a larger audience, meaning that the single player experience will always be available to the core players, and the other players who simply are not interested in a story can move on to the mp, like on the ps3 with a lot of big titles.

The way i see it, they might create spin off games like they did with the god of war games and the Grand theft auto series for the PSP. As i remember, the God of war was a story of its own that you didnt need to play in order to understand the PS2/PS3 game series.

Why porting ps3 games to ngp though? If i want to play these games i can play them on my ps3. I hope for more original games and new concepts utilizing the capabilities of the handheld. Climbing trees with the touchpad in Uncharted is ok but I hope for something more clever Fortunately, Yoshida shares the same thought

It's basically Sony's way of re-selling old games. why would they port the UMD to PSPGo when they can just re-sell it via downloadable content. Nintendo does it too, but much cheaper. The Wii has NES classics for $5 and SNES classics for like $8. MOST PS1 games on the PSN Store are $9.99-$14.99 or even more!

Haha that's true Jes03 although its nice hearing you sorta have a portable ps3 in your pocket, i really think they should have the psp2 as a console/Platform on their own and have its version of games, not ports. Maybe some, but i think it sorta defeats the purpose of the home console.
