Sony Lifts NGP Embargo, Previews Abound

Sony’s E3 press conference is just over 96 hours away, and they’ve lifted the embargo from their recent NGP press event. As a result, previews, screens and hardware info are pouring out onto the internet.

First off, let’s talk games. Event attendees got their hands on nine titles. Here’s the list:

  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • wipEout 2084
  • Little Deviants
  • Reality Fighters
  • Super Stardust Delta
  • Sound Shapes
  • Hustle Kings
  • Everybody‚Äôs Golf

It looks like that rumor wasn’t all that far off. If the is the whole lineup, it will be a little sparse, but much harder hitting than the one Nintendo provided with the 3DS, which lacked any first-party titles of substance. We’ve got a bunch of game screenshots below.

The reports on the hardware center around the 5″ touch screen, smaller-than-expected face buttons, and two analog sticks. Also of interest is the real touch screen, which lets you perform a variety of actions depending on the title, but has no effect if you’re playing a game that doesn’t support it.

Word is that while the unit is large (Ars Technica says you really have to hold it to appreciate the size), it will still fit into your pocket.

Obviously, we still don’t know how much the thing is going to cost, or when it will be released. However, we’re likely to find out at Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday, and we’ll have a team there bringing you all the news as it happens.
