PSN PSP Game backward compat: CONFIRMED! (Sort of)
This is a copy of Monster Hunter Third (Digital Version of the PSP game) running on the PSP2.
Though the person on-stage is controlling the game with dual sticks. Maybe there is a patch to map the second stick to other game functions?
"Just like the PS3. Only difference is the geometry capabilities. The same lighting shaders, same physics as the PS3."
"Hideo caveats that the clip was actually pulled straight from the PS3 version and rendered on the NGP, which is rendering it at 20 fps. Naturally some graphical reductions will happen for any actual title on the NGP, but it's still pretty impressive."
Doppel Note: Even if it runs at 20fps (about the framerate of Peace Walker?), they must have packed helluva hardware in this thing to run straight ports of PS3 code with (presumably) zero optimizations.
Unreal Engine 3 Demo, said to be BETTER than the iOS version. (Citadel)
Cool, but i have to wait and see if i will want to get it or not. I feel that sony is trying to move more tward other compeditors marketing models by playing content on many different devices through emulators (basicly sony saying if you cant beat the hackers might as well just get the stuff out there on as many devices before the hackers get a chance to do it).
And i would like to say this for any past poster that said sony would not get rid of umds in the past...I did say sony could totaly change to what ever media format they wanted if they moved to an all new handheld system to the point that if that new system started fresh it would mean many ppl would not be able to play their umds. Now we might be able to play the downloaded games we have purchased, but we will have to wait and see. But like i said, sony is moving away from the umd and moving more tward downloads and a different media format.
Everyone has their own opinion. The people you interact with in a community come from all walks of life, many different religions and beliefs, different family income levels, different points of view on many of today's hot topics of discussion. In a nutshell, each person is entitled to his or her own opinion. Discussion about it is the best thing to do, after all that's what communities are for. If it turns into some kind of sparring match, agree to disagree and move on.
Unbelievable day for the gaming community! I'll have to see the front pages of other sites as the live blogs kind of threw out a flurry of multimedia all at once and I couldn't catch up. I give this event a 10 on shock factor. The PSP2 (NGP) looks good. I'm both pessimistic and optimistic. The next gen has arrived. That is for sure.
