The Vision Game Engine available for the Sony NGP

It appears that the first game engine for the Sony NGP mobile device is now available, called the Vision Game Engine and created by Trinigy. The engine has been available for other console platforms in the past and now extends its coverage to the Sony device with custom features developed to make optimal use of its hardware.

Some of these include, according to Trinigy's press release, an optimised character skinning system, full support for cross-platform and platform-specific texture formats, a multithreading system, an efficient rendering system, optimised shader/shader constant handling, support for normal and parallax maping, specular maps, dynamic lighting, post-processing effects and many others. Because of all of the above, the end result is stated to be very close to current gen quality, albeit on a mobile platform (check the vid above which certainly does look very impressive it has to be said).
