Sony unveils 82-strong NGP studio support list

With Nintendo crowing about its 30+ title expectations for the 3DS launch, you couldn't expect Sony not to do some gloating of its own about the studios signed up to work on Sony NGP titles. Altogether there are 82 companies worldwide committed to the new quad-core console, including big names like Square Enix, Capcom, Ubisoft and Rockstar games.

Japan, unsurprisingly, has the most participation, with a full 48 companies already onboard. North America and Europe/PAL bring 16 and 18 to the table respectively. There's nothing like a full list of titles at the moment, but Sony did wheel out Little Big Planet, Killzone, Uncharted and Resistance at their NGP launch event.

Of course, that's just the list as of January 27 2011, and with the NGP not expected to reach the market until the end of the year we're expecting to see more developers jump on board - not just with the NGP but with Sony's new PlayStation Store for Android devices. Given that should allow a single title to work on both the NGP and Android 2.3+ smartphones/tablets, it's likely to significantly boost the amount of available content as canny developers make best use of their time.
