A user has posted screenshots of him playing Lair on the PlayStation Portable in remote play on the Official US PlayStation Boards. Many users where skeptical, but some users tried it out and confirmed that it works.
I read some really bad reviews about Lair, but if that's true... I'll just have to get this game. Remote play would just kick ass.
Sony would touted this feature at the top of their lungs to promote the game as well as the psp.
I just tried it out, it works, eat your own words buddy...
im gonna put this to the test when i get home. edit: this is true!! i called my girlfriend and had her turn on my playstation and i am playing lair at work. the analog stick is on invert so its hard to play. ill post pics and vid when i get off at 8 pm est. if anyone else can do so i recommend doing so toprove this is real.
please let us know if it works:) I have this feeling those pics are just in-game screenshots/movies
They are most likely real. Many other people on the forums have tried and it worked.
If there is no analog control for the dragon and the PSP does not have motion sensing, how would you play it on your PSP? Am I missing something?
My firs reaction was: Omg, thats so hardcore next gen! Its like to good to be true. But if this really works, I am definitly buying Lair :D
I mean, unless they are going to release a patch to allow a PSP based control scheme, you can't fully play the game like this. It's a great idea, but without motion controls (or a suitable replacement for the PSP)it's largely novelty. Still damn cool tho.
You control the dragon with the analog nub. The real problem is, there's no R2, L2, so you can't land...
...him a decent digital camera as the pics he's posted are crap.
guess they're gonna have to rescore this game if this is true
wow...thats what i was thinking..lool but if playi on a psp it's so bad controls like ps3 than this is just a waste of time...
It is logical to at least try to find i way to use PSP and remote control this way, but i think not going to happened just yet.
Ya, this doesn't make sense...especially since the game was made for the sixaxis. i would be really surprised if this were actually true.
Ill try it out and see if it really works.
awesome lair will be the best for toilet play ever. and yes i mainly use my psp on the toilet in case you wondered. and yes i love the psp for remote play since i can watch southpark on my psp while taking a dump
me 2.....ur not the only one
I'm going to buy myself a psp for that exact reason,to use on the crapper.I am actually posting this now while i'm on the crapper from my Nokia N73 :-)
to the actual forum post there is alot of people confirming it im pretty sure it is true
That would be so nice.
You said toilet play lollllllllllllllllllllllllllll l Bubbles for you man, please return the favor
Where the hell did your bubbles go ! lol Anywho That was funny, and I gave you bubbles as well peace
Whoa, what? Does this work for every Ps3 game or just Lair? If only Lair, why? Will future Ps3 titles support this? ;O
How does this work? How can the PSP handle a PS3 game? Does the PSP connect to the PS3 via a Sony network connection, then the PS3 powers the game and basically the image is just transmitted to the PSP?
it looks alrigt on the psp but its laggy as crap
that's exactly how it works
is lair already out
It is out for like 2 days now.
SHAME ON THEM , not Factor5 .. to STUPID Reviewers.. they couldnt control dragon so give the entire game low score...( even a STUPID girl can play LAIR with some training ) it need just some practice.. then u HAVE a REAL dragon in YOUR F***in HAND... how can u play it with one analog stick? ... I havent PSP now (sold it) .. someone test it.. :P I want a SLIM one..
I have tested it works but of course its laggy cause your streaming. but u can control the dragon with the analog stick. And yes it only works woth Lair i tried warhawk but it doesnt work. its a great start tho
holy shiat its true! just tried it out
crazy thats killer.
Lair works, other games and demo do not. The PS3 is still doing all the grunt work, and the video and control data is being streamed to the PSP, and then back to the PS3 and then back to the PSP. It's laggy like Halo said, but it's playable. Can't land (no R2/R1), u can't do side slams (no 6axis), and the analog stick is a inverted flight control like old airplane games. This is may have been a Factor 5 experimentation with remote play i think, an old piece of code they forget to take out. or decided not to take out. I dont think they expect gamers to find this, and since the control is not complete and the gameplay is laggy, that's why they didn't mention it. But i am glad its there, it opens up a windows of opportunity for the PSP now.
Wow head spinning with amazement
it's not laggy at all, hit your home button on the psp go to settings select response to 5 and it plays smooth and side slams work for me just tap the analog stick to the sides...
awesome i am going to my bed it bored me
making one right now... upload it ina min edit: fahq youtube gave me an error
I will also get the slim psp when it comes out too. How many of you guys like lair is it good? I am loving warhawk!
WOW!!!!!!!!! does it work? if it does i'll go buy it right now
I just tried it. I can't believe those morons didnt advertise this!! Just set up remote play and start up lair like normal. You use the analog stick, but beware there is some lag, and getting used to. Its sweeet and I hope more developers start using this. Imagine Warhawk on PSP, eh.
I JUST BOUGHT IT!! IT WORKS!!!! I JUST BOUGHT IT!! IT WORKS!!!! I JUST BOUGHT IT!! IT WORKS!!!! I JUST BOUGHT IT!! IT WORKS!!!! I JUST BOUGHT IT!! IT WORKS!!!! I JUST BOUGHT IT!! IT WORKS!!!! @Huddymonster below............i'm getting on Warhawk in a min. still in shock over Lair.
Here is the deal. Reviewers dont take their time with games. It is not their fault because they have to review all the games and it does not leave a lot of time to really get into the game and find out what makes it great. First of all I was frustrated at the start but the controls started to become second nature. I only had trouble on the spotlight level and other than that I was having a blast. Also the reviews left out the best part of the game which are in the amazing story which keeps you wanting to play. Its like reading a great book and not being able to put it down. Also the score for the game is awesome and you can tell a lot of effort was put into it. The graphics are breath taking at some parts. I can see where reviewers were coming from but if they had spent a little more time with it they would not have missed out on an amazing experience. Also if remote play does work with no lag and they can get the control scheme right I could play this game all day trying to get the golden medals. Also me and EZCHEEZ WILL OWN ANYONE IN WARHAWK. ADD me as a friend on psn if you want to tryout for the A5 (Anonymous 5 Clan)!!
Few months ago I was saying the the PSP2 should be used as a Ps3 controller/display to be able to use the Ps3 around the home. If Lair is an experimentation into that possibility then the futre is going to be obvious. Now the future PSP needs dual analogue sticks and if possible a six-axis function then remote play/use of the Ps3 will be a definite. Likely that developers will voluntarily add options to remote play like Factor 5 has with the current PSP.
Holy shiz! Amazing stuff!
why havent sony brag about this... Or it was always there but is blocked like playing Blue ray movies. Could it be that in the rush of bringing the game early they didnt put the block on remote play
Hahaha, I am gonna get this game now, just for that feature.
But the UK release is still down for 19th October! I cannot believe there are people already playing it & using their PSP's. I could always import ... but I shouldn't have to!
i was skeptical also, so i booted up the game and did remote play. you control the dragon with the analog nubs. the L and R buttons are lock on, the face buttons are your fireball, wing flap, and melee attacks. as you'd expect, the visuals look great, just choppy. there are a few problems, however 1.) Framerate is atrocious. and renders the game unplayable during portions (there *ARE times when the framerate is steady enough to blast a few bad guys) 2.) No L2 and R2 buttons, so landing is impossible. 3.) Without the motion controls, most of the later missions are unplayable, as you'll need to jerk the controller about to defeat bad guys when fireballs won't work, and break objects. all in all, my roommate and fiancee were impressed, and i know i was. mainly for the potential that this ability has. imagine being able to play Warhawk on your PSP via Remote Play when you *AREN'T near the console (i checked Warhawk by the way; it doesn't support it, sadly). you'd think PSN games would work with the remote play function (like Piyotama or Sudoku).
everyone wants the game for this feature now. They should have advertised it and worked on it more.
It works!! this is crazy would not believe it if I did not do it my self. Here's the Video link. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
thanks for the vid bro. Looks [email protected]
Insane wizardry...I don't quite believe this.
trust me, deep, it works. i wouldn't lie about a feature like this. what would be the point? plugging in a PC USB control pad also works, allowing you to control the dragon with the analog sticks.
http://www.pspfanboy.com/20... it's only a matter of time before sony gets it right.you will be playing future games from ps3 on psp. you can go to the sony store and download through the psp. you can watch movies and look at pictures. you can stream music what do you think sony's doing with this: http://www.pspfanboy.com/20... http://appft1.uspto.gov/net... only a matter of time.another sony feature that is CAPABLE on ps3.AND WILL BE ON PS3.IS ON PS3.people still don't understand what sony is capable of as a company and what the ps3 will be doing.don't limit yourselves to just ps3 games.ps1 games,ps2 games,psn games,ps3 games,"HOME" arcade games.logging into HOME through the psp from anywhere in the world.open your minds. hahahahahaaha!!!sound like that mutant in total recall to arnold's character quade. wait for TGS. can't wait until you see 3D games and you're using PSEYE in the future.innovate or get left behind. ....................mag lev super train...............
lol i would try a combo, playing Lair on the PSP and with the new PSP slim play it through the component output on a TV :D think about it... :) Edit: mag-lev shadow - well i thought it as a joke :) if you were in the same room with the PS3, you would use remote play on the PSP and hook it up on the TV, which would make no sense :D but yeah i didn't thought, that you could play it through online anywhere in the world :)
i though of that too.psp too small where you are in the world from your ps3?hook it to a tv.and in some places,watch GOTV in europe.watch recorded shows when the tuner comes out.the psp will be interconnected with ps3.zune can't do it.ds can't do it. they just don't have any idea what sony could cook up through firmware upgrades.
I was on the sony boards when the person who discovered this posted up his thread. I used to sell alot of customized PSP's so i picked one up i had laying in a drawer and tested it out. Definetly works. And if you dont believe me or the others youll believe it when you get slapped in the face with a magazine report. Peace.
But my disbelief came as a result of Sony not boasting a feature like this to promote Lair, the ps3, and definitely the psp, seeing as any good news would help it in sales against the DS. Why wouldnt Sony say anything about this though? I always thought that remote play wouldnt be viable until the end of the ps3's life cycle. Can you remote view content from your ps3 like blu ray movies or whatever? I'll give it to Sony, if done right remote play will be magnificent for sales. Thanks chopulin for providing proof on youtube for me to see. And since this does work, remote play IMO is a mega killer app for Sony. Have fun.
the reason why they didn't boast about it, is because it's not perfectly implemented. the lag, the constant dropping out of remote play, if they had touted the PSP/PS3 Lair compatability, it would have been just *ONE MORE thing for bitter reviewers to gripe about not working properly when writing up their tirades about how sucky Lair is. i just played another two, three missions, and i'm honestly enjoying the game. this hasn't been the first time i've said this, but reviewers are worthless these days. they expect too much from games that they can't appreciate a solid gaming experience when it's presented (ie, Lair is a 7/10: not great, but not god awful; simply solid, and worth, at the least, a rental). looking at all the gamer feedback, it seems like us gamers are enjoying the game more than reviewers are. of course, the haters will believe what they want to believe, and that is that Sony has "failed" once again, and the PS3 "istehsuck," etc, etc. Lair is fun. Lair via remote play is flawed, but so damn cool anyway. the potential here is quite impressive. personally, i would love to be able to fire up Lair (or any PS3) game, while i'm in the office at work, and play around with it in-between slow times and lunch break. being able to continue my console game, while away from my PS3 and home, without having to bring the system, or the game along with me, is simply too sweet for words, really. Sony wouldn't have included this functionality in the PSP if they didn't have plans for it at *SOME POINT in the future.
Well one guy was saying he turned some setting on his psp to 5 and that eliminated the lag and now it runs smoothly. If that is true, I'll have to buy a ps3 and psp. My company may lack alot of innovation these days and we may buy our way to the top, but I will always give it to Sony for being the most innovative (as well most stylish)
I now believe we will be able to control the robot in MGS4 or have rear view mirrors in racing games like they said it could do.
That's cool. Can't wait for my PSP Slim.
This is great news for both hardware systems. The Psp needs a boost and this should help, Not to mention I can't wait to play the new God of War game coming out for PsP. Cool feature, very cool
and the engineers talked about how Wi-Fi speed is what's holding them back at the moment. But I'm sure they can work something out soon in order to make the lag almost non-existant. Does anyone know the upstream/downstream differences between the different Wi-Fi standards?
This makes the game a better buy.
