PSP Remasters Will Be Playable On PS3 – Will Also Allow Usage Of Common Save Data

leave a comment »

In one of the better announcements to come along in sometime, comes the news that Sony will be remastering a selection of PSP titles for re-release on the PS3 in glorious HD.

Like the previous ‘HD-collections’ that we have seen thus far such as the Prince of Persia trilogy and the Sly trilogy, these remasters will boast stereoscopic 3D visuals and a smattering of additional bonus content.

Perhaps the best news of all, and one that acts as a precursor to some of the functionality touted in Sony’s forthcoming NGP handheld, is that these remasters will be playable on both PSP and PS3, with the save files being transferable between each system; fulfilling the idea of being able to continue your ‘home’ game on the go.

Cool shit eh?

It doesn’t stop there though, these PS3 games may also be played online through the PSP ad hoc system; expanding possibilities further.

The first title to be confirmed as part of this ‘remaster’ series, is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, due in Japan next month, of which you can see a video below:

No Western release details have been specified, but hopefully, remasters of the previously rumoured PSP God Of War titles and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, aren’t going to be too far behind.
