Sony announces PSP to PS3 connectivity

First game to benefit from PSP Plus is Resistance: Retribution

Seven years after Nintendo unveiled the GameCube to Game Boy Advance link cable, Sony Thursday followed suit with PSP Plus, which connects select portable games to PlayStation 3, starting with Resistance: Retribution.

The first game to benefit from PSP Plus is Resistance: Retribution, which launches in spring 2009. At release, owners of both Resistance: Retribution and Resistance 2 can connect their PSP to PS3 using a USB cable to unlock exclusive content and play modes.

In doing so, an alternate campaign mode is unlocked in Retribution, allowing players to use a wireless Dualshock 3 controller with rumble, and/or play the game on a nice big TV. The connectivity mode lasts until the PSP is turned off, says Sony.

The bonus feature arrives seven years after Nintendo announced GBA to GameCube connectivity in 2001, which while enjoyable for the limited number of games supporting it, failed to gain significant traction.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
