Following last week's in-depth feature on 3DS, this week's Famitsu has a feature on Sony's new NGP portable.

Included in the feature is some commentary from many third party VIPs. Here's some of what has leaked out from the commentary:

Square Enix's Yoshinori Kitase
Says he'd like to make an online RPG.
Sega's Satoshi Sakai (aka Mr. Phantasy Star)
Says he'd like to make a multiplayer game with online elements.
Crafts & Meister's Noritaka Funamizu
The NGP game they're making is of a different type than Wii's Earth Seeker.
Namco Bandai's Katsuhiro Harada (aka Mr. Tekken)
Said they'd probably include NGP in future HD multiplatform plans.
Konami's Akari Uchida (aka Mr. Love Plus)
He's forecasting a bold ¥24,980 price point. He is making an NGP game, he confirms, and says its a game where you communicate with friends. (I'm not sure if he's talking about real friends or in-game virtual friends.)
Level-5's Jiro Ishii (aka Mr. Time Travelers)
Said he's excited about the rear touch panel. He'd like to make an adventure game that you download and play one weekly chapter at a time.

The feature also has commentary from Suda 51, Jun Takeuchi (Capcom), Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Capcom), Toshihiro Nagoshi (Sega), Hiroshi Matsuyama (CyberConnect2), Yoshifumi Hashimoto (Marvelous), Yousuke Hayashi (Tecmo/Team Ninja) and others.
