Sony’s PSP Engine Middleware Enables PSP to PS3 Ports

posted in: Game News 0

The PlayStation Portable has good games. However, many of those games rely on dual analog mechanics on a system which does not have a second analog controller. That’s one reason why I haven’t gotten around to playing Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker.

More PlayStation Portable games deserve attention and thankfully Sony is helping with the PSP Engine. Apparently this middleware engine will enable the following features with relative ease:

  • High res rendering
  • Control (with Dual Analogue support) through wireless controllers (Dualshock 3/Sixaxis)
  • 3D stereoscopic output
  • Ad-hoc Party unification
  • Main memory and graphic memory expansion
  • Common save data

Expect more ports in the future under the “PSP Masters” initiative.

I welcome these ports. If it means more people get to enjoy Valkyria Chronicles II & III, then I’m all for it. Don’t disappoint me, Sega.
