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.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

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.
