PSP2 gameplay video: Uncharted

Sony says its upcoming new PSP, the Next Generation Portable, is as powerful as the PS3. Take a look at its graphics capabilities in this Uncharted demo.

Uncharted will be one of the launch titles for Sony's Next Generation Portable Gamespot

Some video of gameplay footage for the PSP2 or Next Generation Portable (NGP) , as Sony is calling the device, is starting to hit the Internet with much more to come. Our sister site GameSpot covered the announcement in Japan and has a demo "trailer" for Uncharted. Several other titles are in the works, including Wipeout, Killzone, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance, Hustle Kings, Hot Shot Shots Golf, and NGP exclusives Little Deviants, Reality Fighters, and Gravity Daze.

Sony says the NGP, which doesn't have a price yet and will be released late this year, is graphically as powerful as the PS3 (on a small scale, anyway). It features a 5-inch touch-sensitive OLED screen (larger than the original PSP's screen), dual analog sticks, tilt-sensitive Sixaxis controls, front- and back-facing cameras, and a touch-sensitive back panel. Its CPU is a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 core, and its GPU is the Imagination Technologies PowerVR SGX543MP4+. Wireless connectivity includes Wi-Fi (802.11n), Bluetooth, and 3G capabilities (with service plan).
