    Just when you thought it couldn't be done, homebrew coder Geecko stepped upped to the plate to unveil the first 3D enabled homebrew app for the PSP. As spotted by pomopop over at PSPGen, homebrew coder Wassgha announced yesterday that he is in the process of developing a plugin that will bring 3D technology to PSP using your good ole red/cyan glasses and urged other developers to follow suit with his concept.

    umm, the 3DS is glasses free. I think someone needs to tell him that.

    There's a big difference evidently. For a 3DS you'll presumably have to shell out around $200.00 USD for a system that will take considerably longer to open up to homebrew (DSi mode of the Nintendo DSi has yet to be cracked). Consider, for a second that this is [homebrew] it's not programming or software being written by an official company. In that regard...homebrew is non-profit, and the PSP has been open-brew for quite some time now...

    Also consider that those old-style red/cyan glasses are ultra-lame, and will make the screen look dark as shit.

    You have to do lots of crazy math to the actual colours of an anaglyph image to get the colours to resemble anything like what they're supposed to be. So this probably looks terrible. Sounds fun though.

    It might not look pretty. Nonetheless, amazing Proof-of-Concept

    PSP already is power-ful... to put 3d onto it would mean great developers rather than great games

    I never thought it couldn't be done.

    Also, this is anaglyph 3D. It was possible on any color screen ever, so the PSP could do that from day one, but nobody actually did it because it looks bad.
