Sony has announced that Mainichi Issyo, its free PlayStation Store PS3 download, can be played on the PSP via remote play. By activating remote play, you can interact with Toro the cat through your PSP wherever you manage to find an internet access point.
So does this mean that we can look forward to Heavenly Sword and Lair on the go? Probably not. Mainichi Issyo is a passive game where you simply select options from a menu and watch the results. There's little concern over lag. In fact, the few timing-based mini games in the game are not compatible with the remote play feature.
Games are an evolving medium. Every year we see innovations
on how these technologies are used and the types of stories
being told through them. Sometimes those stories arn't happy
ones, but games are the best language to hear them in.
Sony has finalized the schedule for this weekend's Toro Station Marathon event. Joining real life guests like Fumito Ueda and Akihiro Hino will be game characters like Sack Boy, Dante, and LocoRoco.
Mainichi Issyo thanks to the latest patch, it now seems to also have an in-game chatting function. Players can send, write and receive messages while playing as well as see the list of your friends and players met while in Mainichi Issyo.
