    It sounds like this engine is made SPECIFICALLY for the NGP. I’m excited to see sony getting support from other companies to fully back up its next gen handheld device. This begs the question of whether or not activision will use this engine when creating the so called Call of duty game for the NGP. because this game will be huge to sony, although i probably won’t get it, it will definitely help sony push units out onto the hands of the consumers. Aqua Out!!!!

      lol I feel it in my heart that you’re full of shh… Sony doesn’t always show support because that’s the number one reason that the PSP Go was such a failure, the LACK of support from sony in the form of software. You can argue peace walker and ghost of sparta but after that, there was virtually nothing that was great. LPB psp edition was not a hit persay so they completely abandoned ship. PSP go was not necessary it was the same crap wrapped in a different plastic. Aqua Out!!!

  • @aquaman22: this engine actually support a ton of platforms (PC, PS3, Xbox360, browsers) and supports games for XBLA, PSN and Wiiware. NGP is their latest offering. And they also just announced support for iOS and Android.
