Play PSP games online through your PS3

adhocparty

Sony has announced that adhocParty, a free application that allows you to take your PSP online using your PS3’s Network connection, is coming to Europe. The app has been available in Japan, where it has proven extremely popular with Monster Hunter players, for some time now.

The main point of adhocParty is to make games that are normally only playable in multiplayer via adhoc mode (i.e. linking to PSPs within 10 metres of your own) playable online. The games don’t need updating as they ‘think’ the PSP is still connecting locally, when in fact it’s connecting to your PS3, which is then connecting to thousands of other adhocParty users around the world. Similar, unofficial applications have been available for some time now, but adhocParty has many advantages: the software is better and slicker, you can be sure that a lot of other people will be using it and it supports voice chat, so you can slap on a Bluetooth headset and talk to your fellow gamers. Very useful for co-op games like Monster Hunter.
