103w ago - Just before E3 2011, SCEE's James Gallagher has officially unveiled several upcoming NGP titles for Sony's Next Generation Portable handheld alongside some video footage (below) today.
Current titles included in the NGP lineup are Uncharted: Golden Abyss, WipEout 2048, Little Deviants, Reality Fighters, Super Stardust Delta, Sound Shapes, Hustle Kings, Everybody's Golf and Resistance Retribution.
To quote: Since NGP, or next generation portable gaming system, was announced back in January, I know you have been itching to find out more about the hardware and the games we're going to be able to play and how they make use of the innovative new controls.
Now, we are finally able to lift the lid on some of the NGP titles currently in development. I also managed to grab interviews with some of the developers at an event held in London recently, where journalists got their hands around all of the games listed below.
Without further ado, here are the games:
Uncharted: Golden Abyss
Nathan Drake's first portable adventure is developed by Bend Studio, the team behind the acclaimed Resistance Retribution on PSP.
It promises to retain the crucial elements of the Uncharted titles - adventure,...

From the Web site: Vuzix iWear is a stunningly impressive range of face-furniture that allows you to watch whatever you like whenever you like, in the privacy of your own... erm, head.
Simply slip on these lightweight cyber-shades and prepare to be totally blown away by a fully immersive audiovisual assault. That's right, we said audiovisual because these slimline shades even boast integrated (but removable) earphones.
