E3 2011: Older PSP Games More Awesome On The NGP

Thinking of picking up the NGP? No? Well this may change your mind. At a pre-E3 media event last night, Sony blew the lid open to their new handheld device, the NGP. And so far it seems, thankfully, that the device will not be called the PS Vita.

Anyway it seems every PlayStation Portable available on the PlayStation Network (PSN) will be playable on the NGP through software emulation. And the icing on the cake over here is that those games will not only look significantly better, but they will also take advantage of the NGP’s second analog stick.

If for some reason, you don’t prefer the upscaled visuals, you can turn that off through the console itself. The only bummer here is that this is restricted to the PSP games that were available on the PSN. Still I’d say this is good news as there are so many games out there I couldn’t enjoy due to the lack of the second analog stick on the PSP.
