Sony finally unveiled the successor to the PSP in Tokyo at the PlayStation event. Working name "NGP", the Next Generation Portable features the latest cutting edge technology to create the most powerful handheld device ever made by a wide margin. Featuring a 5" OLED screen, dual analog sticks, a quad-core ARM Cortex processor and Power VR graphics processing unit, the NGP is according to Epic Games, four times more powerful than anything else on the market and boasts PS3 quality graphics.
The NGP also boasts front and rear cameras and touch pads, as well as 3G connectivity, three motion sensors, gyroscope, accelerometer and electronic compass and a microphone. UMD has dissapeared in favor of flash memory cards with even higher capacities and faster loading times than the 1.8GB UMD format. All this comes with a question of how much and battery life? So far all we know is that it won't cost $599. A few games were shown, graphics impressing all. Check out the conference below:

Rockstar was no doubt unhappy when a new trailer of L.A. Noire was leaked onto youtube and ended by showing the release date as May 17th for the US. Quick action resulted in said trailer being taken down quickly before most people had a chance to see it, but the release date is now confirmed. Europe will see the game three days later.
The game's not even out yet, but many assume that Rockstar will once again create another AAA title with L.A. Noire. After four years of development and various delays, Team Bondi and Rockstar have had a good amount of time to polish the title to the high standards set before. [click for the full article]

MotorStorm Apocalypse has finally been given a release date. Apart from driving through the post-apocalyptic terrain, you'll also be able to experience it in earth-shattering 3D, if you have a compatible TV set and glasses of course. Europe and North America are getting two different boxart covers and I think both look great, so it's really hard to choose which one is better. The image to the right belongs to the European boxart.
This one on the left belongs to the North American release. MotorStorm Apocalypse, the third game in the series is set to be released on April 12, 2011 for the PS3. If you pre-order, you might recieve a bonus of some kind depending on the retailer. [click for the full article]

After plenty of delays, this could be the last one. Rockstar is set to announce the next release date for the highly anticipated title and while delays are common, Rockstar does churn out fairly polished titles with the extra time they give themselves. While for many the news of a release date being announced soon for the title is big news indeed, it was simply posted on Rockstar's twitter page.This is what they had to say: "L.A. Noire is coming to Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 this spring. The official release date will be announced soon..."
Shouldn't be long now until we have the (hopefully) final release date and don't encounter any more delays. [click for the full article]
