    Only one game will have PS3 controller enabled. Resistance: Retribution, but it requires some sort of linking possibly through the PS3 wifi and the psp.

    Someone is working on a kit that basically adds a USB host port to the PSP via the headphone jack. Mouse, keyboard, and joystick support is included. It's pretty slick.

    I already did after I posted. I can't until I get the cast off anyhow so I'll try it then.

    No. You'll be able to do it using any PSP, but you'll need to have a PS3 running Resistance 2. The PS3+R2 combo bridges the connection between the PSP's wifi and the DualShock3's bluetooth.

    It's pretty lame if you ask me.
