PSP2 Running WipEout HD Flawlessly?

3 Comments | posted

Prior to the big reveal of Sony’s next portable handheld, simply dubbed, NGP — there was mass speculation that the device was powerful enough to replicate PlayStation 3 software at full force. Though the launch titles they showed off during the show looked phenomenal, none of them looked too closely like its console counterpart.

However, according to an anonymous source, the NGP is able to run WipEout HD, the same game available for download on the PlayStation 3′s network store flawlessly. What this means is that it is capable of running the game at the full 60 frames per second, with shader support, and no decline in visuals. Apparently this show of strength took place at Sony’s HQ in London.

While I think it’s a little early to jump on the PSP2 bandwagon and I think we should wait for more concrete information, it’s very hard to not get excited about the realm of possibilities that this hand held could bring to the marketplace. How would you rate your excitement for the device?

    From just the stuff they’ve shown so far I feel the console is well worth the full price investment on launch. I have full faith in the console providing what I want. The problems would be the developers delivering quality games or not, but even if it is a similar library as the PSP, it would be worth it. Some really great PSP games out there.

    i think that the PSP’s biggest problem has always been the lack of the second analogue stick. Sure, ReadyAtDawn did an excellent job with both God of Wars with the camera but how do you develop 3D games without proper camera controls? I’m pretty sure that there will be better suport for the PSP2 just because of that 2nd lil nub.
