PS3 loves PSP: e-distribution possibilities explored
E-distribution? Many PS1, PSP, and PS3 games (most likely home-brew games picked up by Sony) will be tossed around the network, but a not-so-surprising surprise was the idea Sony was going to move into movie distribution as well. Here's a humorous quote to break the ice: "While we can't get a grasp for how well UMD movie software is selling, there's no question that the world is moving in the direction of network distribution for movies." UMD's are selling poorly, dear friend. This distribution idea, if it means linking the movies downloaded from the PS3 onto the PSP could instill new life into the portable-movie-buff. Not interested in getting the PS3, but still want to download stuff? No worries. Kawanishi assures us that you may also go through your PC or even a wireless LAN with your PSP. How about cell phones? Yes, in the future.
"It's possible to have distribution of video imagery from the PS3 to PSP," said Kawanishi. Images rendered on the PS3... can be sent to your PSP? IGN wonders if this means gameplay. We believe not. Maybe some of those home-brew titles, though... or a slower paced game so lag is not such a detriment. "PS3 video can be viewed as is on the PSP, so the PSP becomes like a Virtual PS3." So... gameplay cinematics? Downloaded movies? It's still vague, but interesting. Check out the bits we omitted or looked over here, and let us know what your take on the situation is.
