Another Handheld Edition in Development?
You may be itching to buy three versions of Sonic Generations at the end of the year, if a report that surfaced today is true.
The report is from a relatively unknown website, PSPgweber, and it claims to have learned of a tentative launch list for Sony’s Next Generation Portable device, known as NGP or PS Vita in some circles. Among the alleged titles launching with the system are Call of Duty, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Mortal Kombat, Wipeout, and a port of Sonic Generations. The article also notes a PC port, which was mentioned in a now edited earnings presentation for parent company Sega Sammy Holdings.
A version tailored to the NGP isn’t totally out of the question, especially given how many other systems to this point Generations will be on, and given its Holiday release timetable–about the time the NGP itself will be released. Whether a NGP edition would operate in the same vein as the 3DS counterpart is another matter; one supports 3D effects, the other does not. So, if anything were to come of this, it would likely be a watered down port from the consoles. That aside, especially with no source cited on the story, it’s really tough to take this seriously from such a small outlet.
Anything can happen during next week’s E3 though, so although we’ll be sure to follow up on the matter, it’s in the Rumor area for now. Thanks to Woun for sending this in. If you have news to share, be sure to share it with us by clicking Send News Tips at the top of every page.
