3D Support A Possibility For PSP Remaster Titles

Sony's PSP Remaster program will be bringing select PSP titles up to date with HD visuals and mechanics built for play on the PS3, but according to Sony, 3D support won't be tough to add to the list of features either.

A developer on the PSP Remaster program, Teiji Yutaka, told Famitsu that there was an internal team that specialized in 3D visuals. Seeing the PSP Remaster program, it was their idea to bring 3D to the mix.

"They managed to implement it with hardly any hit to performance and processing speed at all, and I don't think that would've been possible without the processing power of the PS3," said Yutaka.

"There wasn't much rejiggering we had to do to make 3D work, but some games need to be reworked because the way they're programmed prevent them from working in 3D out of the box. It's possible to add 3D graphical information to games via the PSP Engine OS, though, so support can be added without a lot of extra burden," added Tadayasu Hakamatani, another dev on the project.

Sony has several PSP Remaster bundles coming soon, with Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver. spearheading to program. God of War was announced at E3 and so was Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker HD alongside the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection.
