Wait, what!?

As it turns out you will be able to play select PSP games on the PS3 with HD visuals, and PS3 controls. You can also import your save data from the PSP version.

So far the only game announced for this is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd

Okay this is awesome. Here's hoping they do this for Dissidia: Final Fantasy. cool

Alpha 1, standing by
Here's hoping they make Peace Walker compatible.

I already have a cable that plugs my PSP into the TV. Can't see this being very meaningful to my life, and frankly upscaling all the models takes a lot of valuable man-hours away from making new games. Unless they don't upscale them in which case it's completely meaningless.

But... Then it's not Monster Hunter Portable 3rd anymore...

Also, if they're sending the PSP ports straight to PS3, does that mean that they're planning on killing off the PS2 soon?
And "Reality" is unveiled. What did it want...? What did it see...? What did it hear...? What did it think...? What did it do...?

Has returned.
No idea.

All I can suspect is that the PS2 is still making a profit, so they probably will keep it around for a little longer.

A trailer of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, running on the PS3.

I wouldn't play these on an airplane even if I didn't have any self respect!

Always Right
They're releasing that game for the PS3 NOW?

How many years late are they? It was announced years ago, then they cancelled the game for the PS3 and made it a Wii exclusive. Then they ported it to the PSP with some new features. And now they're porting the PSP game to the PS3...

Wouldn't it be better to just start a Monster Hunter 4 instead?

A way of playing PSP games without having to be in the proximity of a PSP? I wholeheartedly approve.
...Huh. I wonder what other titles they'll be porting over? Maybe Valkyria Chronicles II or III...?

Forever livid
I would give Sega and Sony all of my worldly possessions to make that happen.

Sadly, jack and shit probably doesn't add up to much.

YES I can play patapon at HD levels (and surround sound volume levels) and piss off everyone in the house I live in. But I dont care I just hope sony ports the Patapon series to ps3

There's also the God of War Portable Collection.
Long live Cinematech.

I'd buy Duodecim and Birth by Sleep for the PS3. Also I'd hope that if Valkyria Chronicles 3 is redone for the PS3 it'll actually get localized...
Welcome to th:|
SURPRISE
@Somewhere above me - I've heard Kojima was highly considering porting Peace Walker to the PS3.
Clarste: Can't see this being very meaningful to my life, and frankly upscaling all the models takes a lot of valuable man-hours away from making new games.
Given all the bragging Sony's done about SDK compatibility between the PSP2 and the PS3, I strongly suspect that these PSP-to-PS3 ports (not upscaled, but rendered native in HD, among other enhancements) are probably a peripheral product of ongoing PSP-to-PSP2 port efforts.

Eric,

^Two responses I have to that one

  1. I dont care.
  2. Why not?

IDC about trophies either. On another note, FUCK YEAH. I'll give Nomura my firstborn's soul if they port Birth By Sleep and Dissidia.

hopelessly optimistic
I'm seriously thrilled about this. Issues of graphics upscaling and lack of trophy support aside, it's FREAKIN' MONSTER HUNTER ON PS3 FINALLY. This is going to ruin my life, and I don't care.

It'll be interesting to see what else gets ported. I'd definitely be interested in the Valkyria Chronicles sequels since I haven't played them yet, and I'd give Dissidia Duodecim consideration even though I already have it on PSP.

PS - It has occured to me that since save data is transferable, I could get MH 3 P for both systems and play it even when the TV is otherwise engaged. I don't think I'll go that far though :P

I love it when a plan comes together, Clarice.

Mighty pirate!
Other than the save transfer, how is this different from porting some games from PSP to PS3, exactly?

[up] It's not? That's why it's a marked range...

Always Right
There's no Level Grinding in Monster Hunter...in fact, theres not even character levels...
"Every opinion that isn't mine is subjected to Your Mileage May Vary."
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
