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

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.

Update: Video provided by PSP GadgetZ.
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.

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.
