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,...

133w ago - As a follow-up to the PS3 update, today Sony's European Product Manager Ross Alexander has shared an update on White Knight Chronicles: Origins for PSP.
To quote: We caught up with Hiroaki Iwahara, Main Planner at Matrix Corp, to talk about White Knight Chronicles: Origins on PSP.
How does White Knight Chronicles: Origins feed into the wider WKC universe?
10,000 years before the original PS3 game takes place, there was a period of strife known as the Dogma Wars. This struggle is between the Yshrenian Empire who are harnessing the power of the Knights in a bid to conquer the world, and the Athwani Mage Kingdom who are trying to stop them.
These events would shape history to come in the White Knight Chronicles saga, and White Knight Chronicles: Origins tells the story of the unsung heroes who lived through this period of unrest, only to be forgotten in the annals of time.
Can you tell us how the characters from the White Knight Chronicles universe fit into the game story?
There are some characters from the PS3 games who appear in our PSP title. For example, right at the start of the game your character will meet...
133w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has announced today alongside a video trailer that Lost Persona Chapter Persona 2: Innocent Sin is hitting Sony's PSP handheld console.
To quote: We're willing to guess that until someone finally dares to make The Adventures of Methuselah Jones, it'll be hard to find a game that's been anticipated by fans for over a decade.
That's right, back in 1999–in between all those exciting millennium parties, of course–a new chapter in the acclaimed Persona series of roleplaying games came out in Japan and was ultimately never published in North America. This "lost" chapter, long anticipated by fans of Atlus, the series, and RPGs in general, is extremely overdue.
Apart from one other game coming out this year that has teased and tortured its fanbase for a similarly agonizing stretch of time (you know, the one that wants bubble gum but is out of it), there really isn't much else out there that fans have been waiting as long for.
Which is why we're so excited to announce that the wait is nearly over. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2: Innocent Sin, or rather, an enhanced version of it for PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, is finally coming to North America!
138w ago - Today Ghostlight Community Manager Ross Brierley has made available a video spotlighting Persona 3 Portable, which is coming to PSP consoles in Europe on April 29, 2011.
To quote: I am very excited to announce the upcoming release of Persona 3 Portable, the excellent PSP version of the critically acclaimed and award winning JRPG.
From the opening cut scene, Persona 3 Portable draws you into its unsettling world allowing you to explore the deep contrast between your character's everyday school life and the mysterious Dark Hour, a time hidden between one day and the next where terrible creatures lurk.
As a member of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad, you have the ability to cross over to the Dark Hour where you can wield a special innate power - your Persona. When the Dark Hour comes, reality crumbles away.
Your school mutates into a sinister and perilous tower known as Tartarus and the people around you transmogrify into coffins whilst the evil Shadow creatures prey on those who wander unsuspectingly into their realm. Using the powers of your Persona, it is your sole aim to root out the cause of the Dark Hour and protect all humanity from certain doom.
