A new contender is looking to fight Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo for video game market share with a brand new console which is looking to cost lower than most smart phones do alone with out a contract.
Sony has recently revealed that it is releasing a new PSP. It’s currently called the “Next Generation Portable.” The name reminds me of the Neo Geo Pocket.
The NGP (PSP2) will feature PS3 like visuals therefore basically PS2.5 visulas but bright and colourful to hide this fact. The fact is the original PSP was always thought of having PS2 type visuals but again the technology only gave that impression more than anything else (it was more like PS1.5). For example Metal Gear Solid 2 wouldn’t be playable on an original PSP which is why the PSP Metal Gear Solid games where good but not comparable. Using that same analogy MGS4 wont be the same on a PSP2 as it is on a PS3 whatever they might lead you to believe.
Other PSP2 features include two analog sticks (about time, PSP3 will have three) a touch screen, a back that is touch sensitive, two cameras and much more.
Some people over look the PlayStation 3 in favour of an Xbox 360. So to show that the PS3 does have some good exclusive games I have decided to list the best there is on the console. Sure there are some new exclusive games coming soon but these are the ones you can get in most stores now. In no particular order.
The 3rd Birthday is a PSP game by Square Enix. It was originally released for Japanese mobile phones. It is a sequel to Parasite Eve with Aya fighting a monster infestation in New York.
This game stands out from other PSP games because of its visuals which look great on the PSP. And it reminds me of the original games.
A unique feature in the game is the ability to see Aya’s clothes get ruined and see her skin get bloodied. This happens when she takes damage. At the moment I am not sure if this makes the game more or less realistic. Either way it makes the game different and visual interesting and you can see her bum in more detail, after all your going to be seeing her back a lot.
