NGP Could Hit This Year Outside of Japan!!!


Play.tm has implied that the NGP will release this year outside of Japan. As to where outside of Japan, not entirely sure. The site is a UK based site so possibly in Europe first.

They went on to say that Sony will have 4 first party titles at launch with a 5th following shortly after:

Uncharted
Modnation Racers (this game wasn’t even announced before)
Smart As
WipeOut 2048
Resistance (not for launch but near launch, Jan-March)

Consider this a rumor for now, however Play.tm has been correct on many things in the past.

    I want to see it first and then I’ll worry about when it’ll be released.

    However, that’s some good news. Sony would be very silly to wait so long to release that specific product.

    Not happening. The earthquake in Japan pretty much delayed the NGP into 2012.

    @Eden you did read where Sony said the earthquake has no effect on its launch and they will still be launching in at least one area before 2012?

    The reason or justification that I believe Sony has for launching in Europe or NA first is that the PSP is selling gangbusters in japan right now. Why stop that roll?

    @Eddie: But are they making that much of a profit on the PSP? PSP games don’t sell in Japan (unless they MH).

    @Eden Last week, PSP held 6 of the top 10 spots. Its selling very well over there. It actually has been kicking butt over there hardware and software for quite a few months now.

    you’re ruining EdEN’s false sense of Nintendo Superiority!

    @Eddie, where do you find that stuff? It’s amazing! Or is just the trills of gunning Eden down? Poor fella.

    No day 1 monster hunter. I cancelled my pre-order already when I read this. Going to just get the go with monster hunter as that is all Im interested in anyways tbh.

    @Jason you know the NGP actually enhances PSP games right? Could still play Monster Hunter, just with faster load times, slightly better graphics and on a 5in OLED screen.

    Although I can’t see buying a piece of hardware for just one game…so not sure why you pre-ordered it in the first place.

    I’m really divided by that. I have seriously considered acquiring the PSP just for Tactics Ogre (which I postponed to get the NGP instead). And I’m also considering getting a Wii (or a “project cafe”) just to play Skyward Sword.

    Didn’t know about that, actually, I don’t know what’s MediaCreate ;p

    Its the japanese version of NPD basically. Only they announce numbers weekly instead of partially releasing number monthly like NPD does.
