NGP

Sony have just announced a new PSP, codenamed ‘NGP’, or “Next Generation Portable“. I expect it will be renamed at E3 this year.

Most of my Black Lab Games-related focus over the last few months has been on minis – small, single-player games for PSP, which also work on PlayStation 3. I’ve got a few things on the go and I’ll talk about that (in length!!) in other posts in the future.

Whilst most gamers are excited about NGP because of Call of Duty, or Metal Gear Solid 4, I’m excited for another reason. The NGP will play minis! So, the games I’m working on now will/should run on the new portable, as soon as it comes out. Whenever that is.

At the same press event, Sony also announced PlayStation Suite – a gaming platform for Android devices (phones, tablets, etc). It was stated that PlayStation Suite will support PSP games. So, assuming that includes minis, BLG games will be playable on a number of Android devices too.

Wow, support for two new platforms on the same day, and I’m guessing without much (if any) extra work on my part.

Awesome. Just Awesome.
