PD : Portable Device
FCD : First Computing Device
Well according to this : http://www.psinext.com/itex.php?iid=514 there is certainly a tendancy to connect a PD and FCD... will it be for the PSP and PS3? If they asked my opinion I would say that the PSP is fully capable of producing Graphics, it has a medium of executing games.
What could be the advantages of the PS3 generating processed interactive program instructions so that the PSP could execute them audio & visualy?
The PSP engine looses its personality I believe.
Maybe a PD(A?) which wont have the PSP personality can do this.
It would prolong the battery life for one, if I am reading the question correctly. I guess there is no reason the ps3 would hafta conduct all of the processing and just send the video and audio feed to the psp, except maybe that sending the raw instructions may be more bandwidth intensive than just the feed. But I don't really know too much about thatOriginally Posted by MegaGrid
PD and FCD?!? Why are you making up acronyms for devices that are already acronyms (PSP & PS3)?Originally Posted by MegaGrid
And what are the advantages? Well you'd be seeing PS3 quality graphics on a PS2 quality device. You'd also save battery power by keeping the PSP's chip from running at full capacity, but I'm sure the WiFi will takes its own toll. The biggest advantage is providing yet another way to interact with PS3 software. The GameCube has a similiar host/client setup with the GameBoy advance but its not wireless. Cool feature tho.
i must be slow. but in all i still dont see the point of why it would be a great thing to hook up the psp to the ps3. i dont see the advantages....

Both games make use of the GBA / GC connectivity and do a good job of it too (Zelda more so IMO).
There is a world of extra features you can add to a game, with a Handheld device being used as a controller. Maps / Menus / secret messages to a teammate in a multiplayer styled game / etc.
While there's only a handful of things to do right now, I'm sure developers will make more use of it and find new things they can utilize the PSP for.
In the end it's an extra feature I personally prefer to have, rather then not have.
