    Vita and PSP to Talk with Each Other

    It seems that Sony is at it again with the older consoles liking the newer ones to come out. Vita will now talk with PSP via ad-hoc play.


    Letís say you have Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and a friend has the same game installed on PlayStation Vita. Can you play together? The answer is yes. PlayStation Vita can play downloadable PSP games and communicate with PSP for ad-hoc play.
    So with that being said, is Sony trying to keep the Sony PSP alive and well by giving gamers that added bonus to communicate with the much anticipated PS Vita later on this year? You be the judge.

    Yah this was expected. Specially with a lot of PSP titles going to download. The same has been done with the ps2 to ps3 for us with the backwards compatible ps3.

    And what was the point of this post? It was a post to confirm that the PSP1 and PSP2 will be able to play PSP1 related games together. Whats wrong with that? Or you think the PSP was trash? No reason to want a badass handheld to die for no reason.

    This is kinda awesome. Means I can let my friends/relatives use my PSP to play a game with me while I use the Vita. This is a very cool feature, and makes it all the more worth it to hang onto the PSP once the Vita comes out.

    Calm down.
    I just think they should let the PSP finish and just focus on the Vita so that devs are just focusing on the one platform. That is MY opinion and I am entitled to have it. I am sure you have your opinion as well and are entitled to it too. Just don't jump on posts like that it's not needed.

    Calm down? Didn't realize I was getting upset. With the major supply and release of PSP games that are flooding PSN now that support Ad-hoc and Infrastructure. It was easily expected that they'd make the Psp2 communicate with the Psp1 so people with both systems can play together instead of having all those PSP titles just rot, unless you use the PSP1... With a lot of the software already there with the support of the games, I'm sure it wasn't a big deal for them to implement that in. Besides, with them shooting themselves in the foot with the PSPgo, it was the least they could do.
