We’re still not entirely sure when the NGP is coming. Initially, many seemed to be speculating a 2012 release, but it seems more and more likely for a 2011 release. According to this rumor, it will be launching later this year and it will be hitting a region other than Japan first. But we’ve heard similar rumors multiple times. What’s more intresting is the extra baggage this rumor carries.
According to the sources of the UK website, Jolt, Sony has four first party titles locked in for launch right now. The list includes Mod Nation Racers, Wipeout 2048, Smart As and most important of all, Uncharted. The source also claims that Resistance for the NGP will be launching sometime within January and March in 2012.
If true, that’s a pretty strong line-up for launch. This doesn’t even include offerings that third parties may have. NGP is likely to be a huge part of Sony’s E3 presentation in June. So it won’t be too long until we get some solid details.
