PSP Minis to be playable on the PS3 'shortly'

Budget PSP downloads coming to PlayStation 3

While the PS3 has a superb suite of downloadable games, including the Pixeljunk series, Flower, and Noby Noby Boy, the output of new titles hasn't been as consistent as competing downloadable services like Xbox Live Arcade and the Wii Shop Channel. Sony is taking a step towards evening the downloadable playing field by introducing PSP Minis to the PS3, according to the PlayStation Blog.

Launched in conjunction with the PSP Go, but playable on all models of Sony's handheld, the PSP Minis sell for a lower price point than most PSP games and take up less real estate on the PSP's memory sticks. Many of the PSP Minis have been repurposed from the iPhone, including the very popular Fieldrunners. Sony hasn't set an exact date for the PSP Minis to come to the PS3, but the blog indicates that the firmware update allowing the games to make the transition will be happening "shortly."

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
