Sony's announced their new portable platform, the NGP, and have announced their first party line-up. However, to show that they have just as much support from third party developers, demos were shown by Capcom, Sega, Tecmo Koei and even the legendary Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid fame.

Whilst demoing a cutscene from Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots rendered in realtime on the NGP, Kojima explained that the"scene was exported directly to NGP."

"On NGP, we can enjoy the same quality as PS3," he added. Kojima then moved onto previous statements regarding cloud based gaming when Peace Walker was released last year.

"When we launched Peace Walker for PSP, this is what I said: In the near future there will be a world of cloud computing... I really believe that you can have a portable MGS and Peace Walker was an experiment for the cloud computing future. NGP allows this cloud computing."

"What I'd like to realize is playing on your PS3, and when you go out, you put the game on your NGP, and when you come back home, you can once again use your PS3 and large screen TV."

However, Kojima had nothing new to announce today. Still, he indicated that there will be something to look forward to at E3 this year.

"This dream is going to come true in the near future. And right now, I'm working on this project of the dream. I'm sorry, I can't reveal this now. But we'd like to present what we're doing at E3."
