Sony brings multi-gadget gaming to PSP and PS3
Carry on at your convenience
Sony is launching a PSP Remaster series, porting selected PSP titles to the PS3, some with support for stereoscopic 3D, and upgraded to HD.
Not merely an exercise in re-purposing games, the series will allow gamers to share saved game data between devices, allowing games to stop playing on the PS3 and begin playing on the PSP, albeit with a slight downgrade in visual quality.
With Sony's next handheld, the NGP, rumoured to be almost as powerful as a PlayStation 3, there was already much talk of multi-gadget gaming floating around. Especially since the cloud-based save game feature was brought to the PS3 in March.
Sony has jumped the gun this week, announcing the new collection which kicks off soon in Japan with Capcom's Monster Hunter 3rd HD. There has been no formal announcement on when the PSP Remaster series will be coming over here, but expect more announcements at next month's E3 show. ®
"I'm not buying any more games from the PS store as you can not resell them when finished."
huh? you mean can resale games you bought from other _digital_ stores after you have finished playing them?
Why bitch about this now of all times? Just look at the Xperia Play games...
as for "Save to Cloud"... my Xbox has been doing that for years...
re: So just like the movies then!
Sorry Sir, but I will have to strongly disagree with you. Remastering old games isn't a bad thing in my objective and biased view, but a good thing for those who never played them and those who wish to revisit them.
example: Half life, is being remade into a new game called " Black Mesa", HL is a big game and many of the new comer (who were too young to play it, or didn't play it back in the day) would be interested in playing it. But considering the graphics you get with today's games, it is unfair to expect them to enjoy the original game. The graphics difference between HL and HL2 is _large_ and only a remake could bring it back so that new player can enjoy it. This apply to many old games like Final Fantasy 7.
The game shown in the article isn't an old game, I'll give you that, but remastering those games and bringing them to a better platform can't be a bad thing no matter what you try to say.
