Hopefully this is one of the teams that, unencumbered with legacy IP, will be able to do something truly creative with the NGP's inputs and create a neat genre-buster offering. The company's release says it all:
Bloober Team, an innovative and experienced developer in the heart of Europe, has been tapped by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to develop a launch title for its upcoming new handheld, currently codenamed the Next Generation Portable Entertainment System (NGP).
“Obviously, it’s quite a tremendous honor to be included in the initial, day-one launch titles for such an impressive piece of new hardware as the NGP,” said Piotr Babieno, President of Bloober Team. “SCEE has been extremely interested in our title since we first showed it off, and have been more than accommodating getting us everything we need to make a great game. The NGP is a truly revolutionary piece of tech and being one of the first to develop on it has been both a tremendous joy and privilege.”
Babieno and the rest of Bloober Team have thus far marveled at how receptive and flexible the development has been on Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.’s Next Generation Portable Entertainment System (NGP). “After spending some time with the NGP SDK and trying a few tricks and shortcuts, we’re honestly floored at what they were able to cram in there,” Babieno added. “SCE is really taking a developer-centric approach this time around to give us and the other choice developers ideal conditions for both software and business development. We’re thrilled that our title will be included in the launch of what is sure to be a successful platform.”
