Third-parties line up to support new Sony handheld

Metal Gear Solid, Monster Hunter, Call of Duty for NGP

Capcom, Sega, Activision, Epic, Konami and Tecmo Koei have all pledged support for the Next Generation Portable console from Sony.

At the PlayStation Meeting taking place today in Tokyo, Capcom revealed a downloadable version of the wildly popular Monster Hunter 3 Portable and a demo of Lost Planet 2.

Sega showed a demo of Ryu Ga Gotoku - known as Yakuza in the West - while Tecmo Koei brought a Dynasty Warriors title to the presentation.

Konami's Hideo Kojima revealed Metal Gear Solid 4 for the system, using the model data and environments from the PlayStation 3 version of the game, and also teased the possibility of a project playable across both the NGP and the PlayStation 3.

Epic's Tim Sweeny described the console as a "game-changer", demoing a new cartoon RPG, while Activision's Philip Earl announced a version of Call of Duty but offered no other details.

I'm hoping these are all launch or launch window releases, as it's high time that we see a new device come out strong with as many killer apps as possible geared to both hardcore and casual players. Granted, the Koei haters will crap all over the DW game (G4's review should be the usual, I'd imagine), but it'll be interesting to see what developers can whip up on the system that makes it a must-buy for those who aren't the fanboys or early adopters just dropping cash on the thing because it's the new toy on the block...
