134w ago - Your favorite PSP games are coming soon to PlayStation 3. Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. has announced the "PSP Remaster" title series this morning, in which Sony and other publishers will remaster their best PSP titles for PlayStation 3 on blu-ray disc.
"PSP Remaster" titles will deliver high-definition graphics, SIXAXIS and DualShock 3 compatibility, new add-on content and/or stereoscopic 3D support. Save data from the original PSP version can be used in the "PSP Remaster" version. Ad-hoc gameplay is supported with the "adhoc party for PlayStation Portable" PlayStation 3 application.
The first "PSP Remaster" title will debut in Japan with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver. from Capcom. The PlayStation 3 version is "more gorgeous and vibrant than ever" and will "deliver dynamic gameplay when played on the large TV screens." A fitting first release, as the game has already sold over 4.5 million units in the country.
Sony Computer Entertainment "will deploy various measures to enhance the software title line-up for the PS3 system." The rumored God of War: Portable Collection from last week is likely part of this lineup. The only question left unanswered is "what's next?" Final Fantasy? Clank and Daxter? With E3 in just over two weeks, we'll soon find out.
Penned by William Harms and illustrated by artist Eric Nguyen, the series bridges the story between inFAMOUS and inFAMOUS 2 and chronicles Cole's struggle to save Empire City before fleeing to the Southern city of New Marais.
Spanning six heart-stopping volumes, the series will reveal sinister motives, dark secrets, and introduce a new threat to Cole and all of mankind.
We're also happy to reveal the cover art, drawn by the famed Doug Mahnke, who has illustrated for legendary DC Comic franchises such as Justice League America, Batman, and most recently Green Lantern.

To quote: With the World Series starting up tonight, we'd like to peer into the future a bit using the most authentic baseball simulation around, MLB 09 The Show.
Utilizing the Artificial Intelligence (AI) in MLB 09 The Show, we simulated the 2009 World Series and the results were very interesting - especially if you're from Pennsylvania. Here's a look at the video highlights...
The series was full of ups and downs as the both clubs clawed it out to the very last pitch. The Phillies took an early 3-1 lead behind the strong pitching of Cliff Lee, but the Yanks came right back with clutch hitting by A-Rod, Jeter and Teixeira to push the series to a decisive Game 7.
With the World Championship hanging in the balance, Chase Utley would become Philadelphia's savior hammering a three-run homerun in the top of the 8th inning to seal an improbable 8-2 victory against the favored New York Yankees.
Here are some of the final stats...

• Game 2: Yankees, 5-4 (10...
