Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on the NGP


She is gorgeous!

The NGP's debut party saw Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid 4, LittleBigPlanet and Call of Duty take the stage, but most were just tech demos. So far, more than 10 third-parties are listed a supporting the NGP.

No release date or price were announced.

Thoughts?

I'm not sure what all the specs mean, but it looks and sounds pretty awesome. It all depends on the games though. I wonder how much it will cost. Probably like $400.

Looks pretty. I had the original psp, and my main complaint was after a little while the thing got really heavy. Hopefully they make this one lighter.

From what I have heard and read, it is much lighter and sleeker.

I also heard a quote from Kotaku.com... "The graphics of this device are twice as nice as the PSP."

That is saying something.

I'm happy to see someone hyped for this. I am indifferent as of now, but I need to see the release titles, and nothing is confirmed yet. Obviously we will learn more at E3.
