Firmware version 3.95 now available [Update]

That's right, another firmware update - and less than a month after the last one, too. Whether you're a fan of frequent updates or not you won't be able to enjoy this latest revision to its fullest without access to a PS3. A miniature update, by all accounts, that adds two PS3-based features to your favorite handheld. Eric Lempel details v3.95, which will be "made available shortly" on the PlayStation.Blog. The update contains the following:
  • While playing PSone games on your PSP, you can now customize how the buttons are assigned by going to [Controller Settings] > [Assign Buttons] and select [Custom]
  • You can now quit Remote Play and choose to turn off your PS3 or leave it on after quitting. This is useful if you are performing a download and want to quit Remote Play, but still want your download to continue on the PS3. Select [Quit and Turn Off the PS3 System] or [Quit Without Turning Off the PS3 System] from [Quit Remote Play] when you press the HOME button on the PSP system.
[Update: Firmware is now available through Network Update.]

Bionic Commando: Rearmed coming to PSP (via Remote Play)

As discovered by MTV Multiplayer, the upcoming PSN title, Bionic Commando: Rearmed is coming to PSP, via PS3 and Remote Play. The title, which originally started as a PSP-exclusive title, made the jump to the next-gen consoles with much enthusiasm. Good thing to see PSP owners aren't left behind, though. Rearmed joins the slowly-growing line-up of titles that support Remote Play, such as PixelJunk Monsters and Lair.

Of course, this feature will not be available on the PC and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Play all your PS1 games on your PSP ... through Remote Play

Users have been reporting that Remote Play has been secretly updated in the last firmware revision. With PS3 2.10, PS3 owners that have a Remote Play-ready system will be able to play any PS1 game on their handheld. Yes, that includes both games downloaded from the Store and PS1 game discs. We've personally tried Wild Arms (the downloadable version) and confirmed that it will play via Remote Play. Our tipster tried playing Metal Gear Solid (on disc) and also found that it works. Happy news!

We find ourselves using Remote Play more and more with the inclusion of DivX and WMV playback. Now, PS1 support will increase our time spent with this feature.

PixelJunk Monsters joins the Remote Play line-up

Currently available only in Japan, the upcoming PSN game PixelJunk Monsters, will support Remote Play. This will allow players to play the game on their PSPs from anywhere with a wi-fi signal. According to Q-Games' Dylan Cuthbert, it is one of the best titles on Remote Play, thanks to its ability to play with low bandwidth. "We also support PSP remote play and it is probably one of the first games that supports this really well - ie. it is totally playable through your PSP, even at low bandwidths."

We're glad that more developers are adding this oft-forgotten feature to their PS3 games. With Remote Play and new downloadable titles reaching the PLAYSTATION Store, it's clear that PSP fans are getting more and more ways of getting games on their system.

Do stuff with Remote Play -- here's a comprehensive list

For those of us with the console, we know there's stuff on our PS3's compatible with the remote play option on our PSP handhelds. But sometimes Sony sneaks an update behind our backs that sort of takes us by surprise, adding functionality with a game or option that we didn't catch. So, someone, user StalkingSilence, at the PlayStation Forums decided to keep a comprehensive list of all things possible with remote play so we never have to worry again.

That's not entirely true. While it's a comprehensive list, a lot of it is speculation and often times drawn from our very own site. Still, we're a good crowd, so we could probably help out the list by confirming or denying some of the less concrete listings. We are glad to see someone is keeping up with remote play functionality though, as a lot of people probably have been curious about what they can do to show it off. Now we know.

High Stakes Poker gains Remote Play function

The SOE developed PSN game, High Stakes on the Vegas Strip was recently updated. The patch allows players to play the game on their PSPs through Remote Play. Currently, the list of games playable through the feature is quite small, with Lair being the most notable of all the releases so far. A poker game is ideal for Remote Play, as the lag players may experience will feel quite insignificant compared to action-intense games. Now, bored employees can simply turn on their PSPs and play poker from anywhere with a wi-fi signal.

Imabikisou goes to PSP ... through Remote Play

Long-awaited Japanese horror game Imabikisou is playable on the PSP ... so long as you have a PS3, a wireless connection and Remote Play enabled. This makes the Sega-published visual novel game the third PS3 game that's playable on the PSP (Lair being the biggest game to use the feature so far).

Calling the game text-heavy would be an understatement. Considering the lack of action sequences in the game, the slow pace and engrossing atmosphere of Imabikisou make it perfect for those that have the equipment (and language skills) necessary to play on the go.
