There are a lot of rumors flying around now that all games on the PS3 will support remote play some day, this is especially heightened by the new release of Lair and everyone jumping on their PSP to play.
I have heard form quite a few people that have either a PS3 or a PSP that have become interested in getting the counter part in order to use the remote play function. This could be huge for SOny if implemented in a good way.
no other console/manufacturer can offer this! its funny, just as remote play appears, so does a new psp..... ?
Imagine playing warhawk on youre psp =)
warhawk on your psp would be sweet, even imagine being on vacation and leaving your PS3 on while being able to log in via your PSP, or even on the way to work. Now we are taking pretty kool idea.
Warhawk would be great... I just don't think the gameplay would work well because of the PSP not having a right analog stick
broadband will kill any idea of playing games from remote play...look honestly..if they have not caught on with the PSN yet what makes you even hope they can iron out any problems with ps3/psp compatibility...I just think the focus should be on the ps3 right now because psp is doing ok and there seems too be alot of problems with the ps3. 10 minute wait for warhawk games, and getting dropped from games are problems...I admit I have been dropped from a couple of games but not as much as i have been reading in the forums..and before any little kid tries and calls me a fanboy i have been in the playstation underground since 1997..GAP member since 2003.
...but you have limited controls on the PSP. No R2, L2, R3, L3, or Right analog stick. Not to mention it isn't as responsive. It will only work well on games that don't use all of the Sixaxis controls. Something like Gran Turismo 5 would be great to play with remote play.
It is a very cool feature and I do like the idea, but only on certain games.
yeha you lose some controls but just think of it as getting a free PSP game with the purchase of a PS3 title. Instead of waiting for a port you can just stream it over and rock out on the move.
I think this is the biggest downfall for this feature. The developers would have to re-map all the controls to make the PSP remote play work properly. In same cases, it wouldn't work because you just dont have enough buttons.
Hopefully GTA IV has this feature, I'd take this over DLC any day.
We could hook up our Sixaxis controllers to our PSPs and play our PS3 games that way. Of course there's the issue of having a PSP stand...somehow. Kind of inconvenient, but it's a good solution.
look at this enough said
right? So you cant take it with you right?
Hopefully you can take it on the go.
at least this is a step in the right direction. But yeah the psp controls are a big problem though.
thanks to the previous PSP update (3.50, i think), you can access remote play from *ANY hotspot in the world.
if i was on vacation in Japan, and my PS3 was at home in Los Angeles, all i would need was to make sure my PS3 was in remote play mode (with Lair in the drive), before i left, then, once in Japan, find a Wi Fi hotspot, activate remote play on the PSP, and i'm all set.
now what would be *REALLY cool, would be able to turn on and off the PS3 via Wi Fi anywhere in the world. that way, you wouldn't have to worry about leaving the PS3 on and in remote play, you'd be able to set that up yourself once you turn on the console and maybe log in.
I love the idea, but lets be honest...without a right analog stick almost all the PS3 games will be half functional on the PSP. So unless the figure a way to link a controller to the PSP (which defeats the purpose of the hand held) I cant see this ever being a real viable option.
I mean even looking at Lair, I heard that a large portion of the game is not playable due to missing controls,etc.
Still...if they can figure it out...or limit its implementation to only games that can be fully controlled then it is a great idea.
Yeah I get what your saying but say your away at a relatives house and you have the new PSP Slim and somehow they allowed the sixaxis to connect with the PSP, then you could quite easily use the TV out on the PSP to play your PS3 on the TV over remote play. Although it wouldn't be in high definition it would still be cool as long as there wasn't to much lag.
I'm sorry to burst your bubble, but remote play won't succeed. It's an interesting novelty that Sony should have avoided. A waste of R&D money.
I doubt it was that hard to implement. It's just sending video in and sending the controls out. As long as the network the psp is connected to has enough bandwidth then remote play is good to go. It probably couldn't handle 60fps though.
Sixaxis is a novelty.
This is a technological break through. A very cool idea, that has limitless possibilities.
I hope they spend more on R&D.
Remote play is pushing the envelope IMO, utilizing high speed connections, hot spots. Great ocncept and I hope they can work it out and make it functional, maybe play PSN stuff on your PSP.
And I have to disagree with 6 axis being a novelty, in that at first i was a none believer but i see some games really iimplementing it nicely into their games like Folklore for instance, u use the axis to cappture monsters. Wii controls are more of a novelty, they are only suited for certian games and really make you feel awkward, only thing worse is the Xbox live camera, it hink i have only used that thing like twice since i opened it out of the box, waste of money.
lair with no motion controls.....it will be good to play games from far away, but how will you change the disc?? motorstorm on psp FTW
its all in the game, PL3y B3YOND
LAir is AAA stuff, the crowning jewel yo! I don't care if it's a flop as long as it's made for the most advanced game console in the world today!
come and get some!
It's the best game everrrr!
Now I'm NEVER gonna get any sleep now that I can drag my next-gen titles to the comfort of my own bed.
I smell Sony being subject to a class-action lawsuit for causing severe sleep-deprivation, nationwide divorces, and massive job dismissals.
Hmmm...Could Sony's current crown jewel potentially act as a root-cause for our next global depression???...
Uh, but until then, I'll continue to accept those delicious updates with a kick of the heels and a glee from cheek to cheek!
The Sony PlayStation 3: A paradox of Euphoria.
$599 PS3&PSP Bundle, Xmas '08. I'd bet on that.
@arkham - now that is one hot idea - from a marketing standpoint you bundle your two products togehter to leverage their strengths and lead off with remote play, that would be awesome, too bad I have both already but I like the idea
