    Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Capcom)

    Kobayashi believes NGP will change the position of portable systems. He's interested in particular in the systems's screen quality and dual side touch. The screen in particular is beautiful and can be seen clearly from all sides. In terms of price, he expects around ¥29,800.

    Akari Uchida (Konami, Love Plus director)

    With the appearance of NGP, Uchida believes online games could become even more casual. Users will be able to be attached to games and online communities from all locations. All games will, like with MMORPGs, allow players to communicate while they play. This makes him excited, as it's something that would work well with the kinds of games that he makes.Uchida joked that if he were to make an NGP game it would be a game where you use the dual touch panels to grab doors. He expects a ¥24,980 price point.

    Yousuke Hayashi (Tecmo Koei/Team Ninja)

    He's interested in the system's specs and online environment. Until now, they've developed games under the idea that people differentiate between games that are played in the home and on the go. However, in the future, you could be able to continue playing one game on both NGP and PS3. He'd personally buy the system whatever the price, but as a developer he wants the price to be affordable enough that many players can buy it

    Katsuhiro Harada (Namco Bandai, Tekken producer)

    He believes that the NGP will be included in HD multiplatform title plans from now on -- not just being multiplatform, but also in connectivity. Regarding what he would like to make, he has to respond "fighting game," but he'd also like to make a Genpei Toma Den? (this is an old Namco arcade title) that uses the system's rear touch panel. Regarding price, he'd like ¥29,800, but he expects ¥34,800.

    Good to see some Japanese devs liking the system, especially for big names like Capcom and Namco Bandai, which have larger chances of getting localized than Love Plus.

    Team Ninja's still on my bad side after that shit job they called Other M.

    Sounds great to me. Harada expects around $424? That's a lot of money. I'll be waiting to pick one up either way, but it's good to see that developers are liking it.

    Cool, glad to see that the stigma from the PSP (was there any?) hasn't carried on to the PSP2.


    Please PSP2; Be the handheld that works.

    These developers are already experienced on developing for PS3, and the NGP tools are on the same level as the console's tools. So we can expect a lot of support.

    And I hope we see many online RPG's on this.

    I've got good feelings about the NGP. I highly doubt it'll outsell the 3DS but I don't see it being viewed in the same 'bad' way as the PSP. I think it'll do alright. I just hope Capcom make a Resident Evil game for it [​IMG].

    PSP2 will be the handheld for people who don't like/don't want the 3DS.

    Just like the PSP is now.

    Uchida has the right idea, he should also get a very in depth NGP version of Love Plus as well, it would sell millions in Japan. Love his $302 price point.

    yes it would seem they are gonna focus on graphics, multiplayer (mmorpg) and action games... isnt this the same as the PSP? and maybe put sports games in there
    not a very big improvement and if they seem to add ps3/ngp mix games, again its not something really inductive to the majority of the people.
    i cant say it is a bad idea but its not that good... ppl will still love it like me

    A lot of people want $300 as price point, hope Sony give NGP this price (or less, which I doubt).
    EDIT: I don't know you shakir, but the PSP has a lot of everything on it, since casual games to violent/adult games. And MMORPGs never existed on PSP (MH/Phantasy Star Portable aren't a MMO).

    Yet they should be.
    Oh, the number of happy people if MH became a MMO with online servers and everything.

    Really it should just be on the PS3 then, MMOs seem like pretty bad ideas on handhelds.

    Handhelds are about portability and MMOs are about hunkering down for tons of hours to grind or something. The ideas contradict each other. Until services like 3G/4G are good enough to support flawless mobile online gaming, it seems like MMOs should stick to the PC, maybe consoles if necessary.
