PSP Games Coming to PS3 with HD Visuals and Extra Content


Sony has announced a new initiative where select PSP titles will be ported to the PS3 with improvements (think dual analog sticks) to each game. They are calling this movement Playstation Portable Remaster Series.

All games will display HD graphics but some games will have 3D support, new exclusive content, control pad support and more!

Game saves will still be interchangeable between the PSP and PS3.

To get an idea what we are to expect, check out the Monster Hunter Portable 3rd up above.

Edit: Rumors are flying around that the HD versions of these PSP games will be compatible with the NGP which makes sense. Lots to look forward to!

    This would be really cool if say you buy the PS3 remastered version and it comes with the PSP game also for one price.

    Hell moterh#$#@%$ yes!!!! Monster Hunter 3rd looks mazing on psp so I can only imagine it in HD. Day one for me but the bigger question is is it coming state side? Monster Hunter 3 isnt even stateside announced yet.

    “GeneticMania: Looks good, But I believe Jason already has all the MonsterHunters for his PSP. Modded PSP. ” Homebrew enabled whats the point?

    Am I one of the only gamers who thinks this is a fantastic idea? I am not interested in portable gaming as I prefer to enjoy my home theater experience.

    There are some incredible games that are portable only such as rpgs: Y’s, Lunar etc.

    I am very excited but hope that they port good titles not the usual suspects like Metal Gear and God of War. Adding 3D is also awesome although I realize most gamers don’t have 3D.

    I play my PSP on my tv with a 360 controller so you are not alone in wanting the home experience.

    Since I don’t have a PSP this is great news. I can’t wait to try out Dissidia, Metal Gear Solid, Crisis Core, Valkyria Chronicles and every other great rpgs for the system in HD.

    Hopefully they’ll have trophy support too.

  12. #12 by Jason on May 22nd, 2011 [ 28406 Points ]

    I dont see them having trophies. PSX dont have them but who knows. Personally if the saves and all that are compatible I would say no. I could care less about them anyways. I turn them off on PS3 because they seem to unlock at the worst time with the annoying sound they make lol

    Just like all those annoying notification on the 360.

    Monster Hunter is one of my favourite series, so any attention to it is a bonus in my eyes. finally getting one on the PS3 will well and truly let me put my wii to rest.

    and NGP support?! I’ll forgive the PSN outage now. assuming we get it in english of course.

  15. #15 by Jcmdaddy on May 22nd, 2011 [ 67047 Points ]

    Peace Walker, and Crisis Core.

    I can’t believe Jason wasn’t the first one to comment on this post.

    Great news by the way. Don’t know which games exactly I’m expecting though… don’t know many psp titles.

    I’ll be playing nothing but Dating Sims for a while, and maybe some music games. I love Japan.

    Def gonna b picking some of these up. Hope they are cheap 8-)

  21. #21 by Eddie on May 23rd, 2011 [ 44542 Points ]

    Oh odd…these will be released on blu-ray disk. That means trophies are pretty much happening, but I was hoping they were downloadable.

  22. #22 by EdEN on May 23rd, 2011 [ 142801 Points ]

    @Eddie: Trophy support would drive up the sales by at least 100-200k and since it’s a retail bluray I understand it’s a given.

    Should be interesting to see what other games get with the program but I would expect the following:

    Peace Walker
    GoW Chains of Olympus
    GoW Ghost of Sparta
    Ractchet, Daxter and Clank games

  23. #23 by IvanTheGent on May 23rd, 2011 [ 380 Points ]

    Not gonna lie this is pretty damn cool

  24. #24 by Kane112 on May 24th, 2011 [ 34742 Points ]

    hmm this seems interesting

  25. #25 by jwhyrock on May 24th, 2011 [ 13 Points ]

    definite fail without trophies. same goes for the upcoming anniversary Oblivion.
