PSP Remaster Games on PS3 to Run on the PSP Engine
At this year’s Game Tools & Middleware Forum event, held today in Tokyo, Sony showcased the engine that will allow for PlayStation Portable games to be ported to the PlayStation 3 as a part of the PSP Remaster line that was announced last month.
The Remaster series will see select PSP games ported to PS3 on Blu-ray discs, complete with enhancements like high-definition graphics. The PSP Engine is what makes this possible, according to a Famitsu report, and allows for support of high-res rendering, DualShock/Sixaxis control, 3D, Ad-Hoc Party, and more. None of this was unexpected, as they were all possible features mentioned when the first Remaster title, Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Version, was revealed.
There’s no word yet on when or if the PSP Remaster line will be brought to North America. That doesn’t mean PS3 owners will never be able to enjoy any of the PSP’s game on their home console — the God of War: Origins Collection, announced during E3, will allow them to do just that. It includes both PSP God of War games, Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta, in high def and 3D, provided you’ve got a capable TV. Unlike PSP Remaster titles, the collection will feature Trophy support, something Monster Hunter fans will have to do without when playing Portable 3rd HD Version.
