Imagine one of the most unique and original games we’ve seen in a long time, Bulletstorm, on PlayStation’s Next Generation Portable. We’ve already heard word that Killzone and Uncharted titles will make its way to the NGP but seeing a previously multi-platform game make its way to the “PSP2” is wonderful news. Design Director of Epic Games, Cliff Bleszinski, talked with Play Magazine about this possible handheld Bulletstorm. He went on to compliment the NGP’s processing power and dual analogue sticks but criticized its touch screen controls. It must be a love hate thing right? Check his statements below.
“I’m excited about it personally. We haven’t announced any actual products outside Unreal Engine being available on it. I liked seeing it because as much as I love iPad and iPod gaming – I’ll be the first person there when the next Angry Birds updates hit – I’m glad to see a portable device that has actual buttons and dual analogue on it. That combined with processing power leaves for a pretty sweet device. Dual-analogue touch-screen controls do not work. It’s fun for 15 seconds and then it’s just friction burn. In the event we had the opportunity and time on Epic’s side and we found a potentially good partner and the stars were aligned, you never know, you could see Bulletstorm NGP somewhere down the line, but God knows right now man. That’s a complete hypothetical.”
