PS3 Update 3.15 Makes PSP minis Maxi

The PlayStation 3 gets an option 3.15 update on December 17th, adding the ability to transfer data between two consoles as well as making PSP minis playable on the PS3.


The rumors were true after all. Update 3.15 will make the PSP mini emulator run on the PlayStation 3, allowing you to play your bite-sized games on a much larger screen...which I suppose you could already do by hooking up your PSP to the television, but it's all about a seamless experience, right?


Having recently purchased a PSPgo myself, I've browsed the minis section quite often, in the same way one might stand in front of a fridge filled with moldy food, wondering if they really are that hungry.

The update also adds PS3 data transfer functionality, giving those upgrading to a newer model the ability to connect two consoles via a LAN cable and swap data, which would have been incredibly handy for me four months ago.

Soooo. Did we mention Yakuza 3?

DUDE, the data swap is a GREAT idea, otherwise you pretty much need a MASSIVE USB stick or a 3rd portable USB HDD (FAT32 formatted) in the mix to transfer data.

I'm very glad to see this added in the update.

Sony is full of win when it comes to added functionality in firmware updates.

All they need now is the much wanted (not by me particularly) cross-game chat and they're on a pretty much level playing field with what 360 has to offer (some might say they're even in a MORE advantageous position considering that they have features like web browsing and an easier to use media streaming setup).

Also nice to see PSP Minis upgraded to fully playable PSN software.
