After Sony's confirmation that this year's TGS would see the full detailing of the PSP: in terms of technical capabilities and pricing, it's no surprise to see that various developers are readying to show off their own PSP software alongside the machine itself. Obviously, SCE will be bringing a few of its own key titles along: with Ape Escape, Hot Shots Golf, Dokodemo Issho and Ten no Kagi, Chin no Mon all confirmed in attendance. It is thought that Sony's offerings won't be limited to these though, with new titles expected to be announced; and with many string-back gloved fingers crossed in hope of a glimpse at Gran Turismo 4 Mobile.
Capcom has also confirmed which of its PSP titles will be paraded at E3. There's Darkstalker Chronicle (based on the Dreamcast's Vampire Chronicle) which is a return to traditional Capcom 2D pugilism; there's Devil May Cry and also Viewtiful Joe. Although it's not yet known how 'new' these games will be, having all enjoyed previous console outings, it will certainly be interesting to seem them actually running on the new Sony mini-screen.
Konami will be putting Metal Gear Acid on display, and because of its unexpected card-battling twist, there will surely be plenty of Snake disciples watching on with expectantly raised eyebrows. Koei, on the other hand, will be presenting the TGS crowds with Dynasty Warriors: which may not have any unexpected twists at all, but should work well as a measure of graphical capabilities.
Hudson has also confirmed that Ren Goku: The Tower Of Purgatory will be at TGS, and as a totally new and original title, that will be watched with great interest. There are likely to be more PSP titles creeping onto the TGS roster in the coming week: as well as a few surprise revelations once the show is underway. It all kicks off September, so news updates shall be forthcoming.
It has just been revealed that Taito will also be ready for a PSP display, with the much loved Puzzle Bobble series (in the form of Puzzle Bobble Pocket) making its PSP debut.
