LiveArea has been announced for the PSP2, currently known as NGP. The newly announced service acts as the UI hub for every game on the NGP, giving users access to the game, news feeds and even communication with other players.
"The LiveArea UI is the gateway to the games. From there you can launch the game, launch the store (for DLC, for example)," writes Jeff Rubenstein on the PlayStation Blog. Users will be able to see feeds of their friends activities and even comment on them.
"LiveArea adds depth to the traditional entertainment experience," announced Muneki Shimada from Software development. Users can exchange messages in real-time with LiveArea.
The NGP is set for a release during this coming holiday season!
