December 2, 2009 // 10:44 am - Update: The resident PS3 Devs have confirmed this rumor, as evidenced in THIS post by DrEmmettBrown.

According to French site (linked above), Sony is working on a secret project... specifically, an emulator that will allow PSP games to be played on the PS3 system.

This is just a rumor for the time being, however, according to their source retail PlayStation Portable UMD titles, those available on the PlayStation Store and even new PSP Minis may see the light of day on the PlayStation 3 in the future.

To quote, roughly translated: "Playing with PSP games on the PS3 seems a project that Sony is preparing in secret. Here's the surprising news that we have gleaned and could make love dematerialization games.

The "ONLY COMPATIBLE with the PSP"... may disappear.

This should be made possible through an emulator in the PSP and PS3 through the dematerialization of games that are now sold on the PlayStation Store and is a UMD in stores. This would also be interesting for all games in the category Minis.

The minis soon on PS3 without additional programming from the devs. This information has been provided by a knowledgeable person and we will pass calmly as we have seen evidence that convinced us.

Unfortunately we are unable to upload the "evidence" but the future will show whether we were right.

Of course, the date of implementation of this emulator is still unknown and a traditional wait and wee is therefore essential."

No offence but i dont understand how some one could want to play psp games on their PS3.

But for sure it would be a great step in case of compatibility. If sony would also release the PS2 Emu, the PS3 would turn into the most backwards and handhelds compatibility console from this gen.

And why would they do that? The PSP Go was just released, with no UMD drive.

That would ultimately stop PSP sales and move most people to the PS3. You can play PSP games with the PS3 controller with the PSP Go. Isn't that good enough?

Doesn't sound like a good move to me. I doubt this is true. An emulator for PS2 games sounds more legit.

I'd be really excited if this is true.

I want to play MGS Peace Walker but I'm not a fan of mobile gaming, so using the PS controller and a big TV will be a definite sell for me.

If this is true, adhoc is a necessity.
