Rumor: Sony is Working on Emulator for PSP Games on the PS3

264w ago - Update: The resident PS3 Devs have confirmed this rumor, as evidenced in THIS post by DrEmmettBrown.

According to French site PS3Gen.fr (linked above), Sony is working on a secret project... specifically, an emulator that will allow PSP games to be played on the PS3 system.

This is just a rumor for the time being, however, according to their source retail PlayStation Portable UMD titles, those available on the PlayStation Store and even new PSP Minis may see the light of day on the PlayStation 3 in the future.

To quote, roughly translated: "Playing with PSP games on the PS3 seems a project that Sony is preparing in secret. Here's the surprising news that we have gleaned and could make love dematerialization games.

The "ONLY COMPATIBLE with the PSP"... may disappear.

This should be made possible through an emulator in the PSP and PS3 through the dematerialization of games that are now sold on the PlayStation Store and is a UMD in stores. This would also be interesting for all games in the category Minis.

The minis soon on PS3 without additional programming from the devs. This information has been provided by a knowledgeable person and we will pass calmly as we have seen evidence that convinced us.

Unfortunately we are unable to upload the "evidence" but the future will show whether we were right.

Of course, the date of implementation of this emulator is still unknown and a traditional wait and wee is therefore essential."

Love it!! I used to link up my PSP with my HD TV. The graphics was not that great but games were playable. Perhaps they will put in a lil something to better the image quality playing it through the PS3.

I can't wat for this "rumour" to become "fact."

Wow no way lol. i still think they might charge, or the "premium Playstation network" could be involved, then again it could be as free as a new firmware update
