The PSP2 code name NGP has been making headline news all over the internet, but one thing that is definitely a very questionable feature of the new Sony handheld, has to be the storage. How is it possible to play PS3 quality games without the capacity of a Blu-Ray? This is how.
Sony did announce that NGP games will be offered in both digital and physical media, but come on, something has to give, those would have to be some expensive memory cards which brings up the question on whether Sony just added the physical media storage to keep the critics’ mouths shut after getting negative results from the PSPgo.
So now we get into digital content, cloud computing and remote play. As you can see from the video below the game appears to be the PS3 version of Metal Gear Solid 4, possibly showing off the remote play features. In addition, cloud computing is going to be huge for Sony, rumors have been spreading lately about PS3 firmware update 3.60 to bring cloud storage for game saves and more, so why wouldn’t NGP come ready with this feature? Even Kojima has stated that NGP can handle PS3 quality games…Yeah, not going to happen with a battery that small, but can easily be accomplished with remote play or cloud gaming.
What do you think?
