Play PSP Games on your Computer Monitor

I saw this interesting thread on the [H]ard Forum. There is a nifty piece of software out there that allows you to play your PSP game on your computer monitor via the USB connection. There is a short video here. You need a piece of software called Remote Joy to do it (as well as a PSP that supports homebrew software).

Wouldn't 'homebrew' be more accurate here? I'd imagine that all PSPs would support 3rd party software.

That seems kinda pointless, but I guess there could be some uses for it.

Ya, I mean... you're playing a portable which has substandard controls for 3D games, and the two big pluses are that you can sit down away from your gaming area and play a game, on a nice looking screen. Then again, this could be a good way for people to use video clips from PSP games for indy reviews and such.

People seem to get like 2-3 fps IF they get a game running (according to some comments on PSP Updates).

Why the HELL wasn't this feature included in the PSP to begin with?

Can you use it to watch UMDs?

Sony should totally enable this feature by plugging the PSP into the PS3.

That sounds good in theory, but playing anything that was meant to be viewed on the PSP's small screen on a TV would be incredibly ugly. Now, if UMD's had been meant to do this from the start, with the PSP being able to be hooked up to a TV to use it as a player, the medium could have actually had a chance at succeeding.

Yet Nintendo sold GameBoy Advance players to play GBA games on your TV.

Sony's own market research finds that most PSP users use their systems at home while plugged in. Why not let them use their bigger TVs?

2D vs 3D really. 2D games don't look so bad stretched out, but the 3D games really look like crap. Of course, I never had a GameBoy player, though I'd really like to get my hands on that GBA player for the GC.

That's how I played one of the Fire Emblem games, on my freaking projector.

Hells yes.

Actually, that's a great idea. I've been meaning to pick those up, and that'd be a great way to play them. I need to hit up eBay later for one of those now.

Edit: Nevermind, I appear to be wrong. The screen resolution of a PSP is only 480x272. Even on a standard screen it would look odd.

If this works any sort of well, I'm suddenly more excited about the Dracula X Chronicles.

Remotejoy does framebuffer captures. This means that you'll always get artifacts when going larger on the PC. An alternative would be to capture display lists as they are being sent to the graphics processor, send them over the network, and then have the PC render them. This would allow for hardware accelerated rendering at arbitrary resolutions.

Of course, the best solution for PSP on PC is an emulator, which is what Iím trying

This is a great idea. If Sony would adopt this, they could let the PS3 do all of the PSP's rendering. You could then play your PSP games in HD with full-screen anti-aliasing. Ye, the poly counts would be low and the textures would be muddy, but it would look better than PS2 games, especially when rendered with nice Anti-Aliasing.

I got a lot of use out of the GBA player for GC. Really neat idea on Nintendo's part.
