Sony doesn't believe in 3D handhelds

Sony has revealed that it considered aping the 3DS' visual gimmickry for its upcoming PSP successor, but decided against it because 3D should be a shared, family experience. Apparently eyestrain headaches love company.  ...

Destructoid discusses Codename: NGP, the PSP successor
by Jim Sterling

In the dead of night, Sony lifted the lid on the long-awaited PSP successor, a system codenamed Next Generation Portable. In addition to this, it also revealed a cross-platform mobile gaming service, the PlayStation Suite. 

Naturally, the Destructoid editors had a lot to say about it. We discuss the potential price, the worth of a touchpad on the back of the system, and whether this handheld behemoth can tackle Nintendo's 3DS. It's a spirited discussion, so leave your flames at the door and come on in!

NGP battery life = four to five hours?

Even though this is being presented as a rumor, it seems so damn inevitable that it's almost worth running as a "Captain Obvious" post before it's even been confirmed. Nevertheless, rumblings suggest that Sony's new handheld ...

Games announced for the NGP include Uncharted, Killzone
by Conrad Zimmerman

Sony showed a lot of both hardware and software at today's PlayStation Meeting 2011. So what games do we know of for the device? Live demonstrations of Uncharted and Hot Shots Golf were performed at the event, as well as Capcom's Lost Planet 2 and a new samurai title from Dynasty Warriors developer Koei. 

The PlayStation Blog has a rundown of other franchises which Sony has shown or talked about at the event. Major properties such as Killzone, LittleBigPlanet and Resistance obviously top the list and Call of Duty appears as well. Pool simulator Hustle Kings is listed, along with a number of new projects such as Little Deviants, Gravity Daze, Broken and Smart As.  

Furthermore, Sony has released a list of third-party developers and publishers. All the major players seem to be on board, though I'm happy to point out that Capybara, PopCap and Grasshopper all seem to be working on projects for the handheld. I can't wait to see what those studios in particular wind up doing with the Next Generation Handheld. Who do you want working on it?
