PSP Remaster Series Coming To PS3, First Title Announced

Today Sony announced a new line of PS3 games it's dubbing the PSP Remaster series -- PSP games that have been upgraded with HD graphics and much more. Here are the first details.

Those who are worried that Sony intends to release a bunch of lackluster PSP ports can rest easy: In addition to the HD visuals, Sony is promising new content for the games, plus control schemes designed for the PS3 controller. Stereoscopic 3D support and ad-hoc multiplayer will also be supported for certain games. Sony also revealed that save files can be swapped between the PS3 and PSP versions of the games, allowing you to play on your television at home, then take the game on the road with your PSP, something that Hideo Kojima showed interest in last year.

The first game that will be released in the PSP Remaster series (in Japan, at least) is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, which is wildly popular in Japan. There's no word on what games will be released in America, but could this be what all those God of War Portable HD rumors were hinting at?
