Confirmed: Lair can be played on PSP (Video Included)

No, this is not a joke. Lair can be played on PSP through PS3's Remote Play functionality. As discovered by Dubbedinenglish on the PlayStation forums, this is quite possibly the first Blu-ray PS3 game to run successfully on the PSP. By reducing the visual quality and increasing the response time, the game is actually quite playable. In fact, because the game uses the PSP's analog stick instead of tilt controls, it actually controls better than the PS3 counterpart.

Damn this is incredible news! I had no idea this was possible. PS3 you really are the future and I'm not kidding around.

ed./ Jsin - do you believe this is possibly a scam? Man I hope not. This is what I was hoping RP could do all along. When I go on biz trips I could just leave my PS3 on at home and play the games that are compatible -- when I'm done playing just kick on [email protected] How cool would that be? I know that there are some limitations involved, but the sheer capability adds a whole new dimension to the PS3 and the games for it. So cool.

Whoawhoaweewa!!!!! I might have to buy psp now.

drtysouf213823d ago

i went out and bought Lair today just to see if it was true. i'm in the process of making a video right now.

i'll show anyone on my PSN list

And this is actually something Sony should advertise big time with upcoming releases. As far as Lair goes, it's a darn shame that it controls better with the PSP's fake analog thingy then the actual PS3 version with those sixaxis controls. BTW, will we ever see someone use sixaxis controlls in a fun yet integral way?

reaferfore203823d ago (Edited 3823d ago )

I like Folklore's sixaxis controls. They're not completely integral though. Same thing with Heavenly Sword's. Seems they only have the left/right/up/down part down pretty good. Too bad there's no (good) 3-dimensional movements yet.

Edit @ 1.7: I haven't played Lair yet. I need to go rent that sucka!

Maddens Raiders3823d ago

The sixaxis is pretty fun and integral with Super-Rub-A-Dub and FolkSoul.

ajthedj3823d ago

@ 1.4 and 1.5

dont mean to be rude but have u really tried the controls and gave it some little time to learn its controls and get used to it CUZ it worth it and more skill should be poured into the game to enjoy it..... have fun gaming.

oh, the PSP connectivity... Fantabulous

Hopefully they do this with games like Ratchet and Heavenly Sword. If so Ill have to go buy a PSP.

Fighter3823d ago

If true then this just confirms that the next PSP(2) will be able to do this for sure without any major sacrifices. I'm a bit skeptical of this vid because you can always record your PS3 game play, convert the video and play it on your PSP. I will try this myself when I rent the game.

ALIEN3823d ago

This thing is cool. They should try this feature on KILLZONE 2 and on MGS4. I like this!

LeShin3823d ago

lol don't let me dream :)

Daishi3822d ago

FPS controls aren't exactly the best on the PSP but heck if you can you should I say. MGS would control pretty darn good if it's anything like portable ops!

DEADEND3823d ago

Yo thats hot as hell why didn't they people about this before, maybe the reviews would have been different and plus it looks great on the psp.
