    My answer is absolutely not. Absolutely no amount of hacking can even handle that shit. Right? One of my friends who I know is trolling me is swearing that he's played a ps3 game on his friend's psp. And his friend "takes it apart" referring to the psp. Complete bs, right?

    You can via Remote Play. Though it's more of "streaming" than "playing".

    Correction, you can't play PS3 games via Remote Play, just PSX and videos.

    Honestly, this is like asking if the GBA can emulate 360.

    So that means you can watch ps3 games on a psp? Not play them?

    Well you're playing them but the PSP is not doing the rendering or anything, the data of the controller input gets sent to the PS3 which in return sends the video to the PSP. It's like OnLive. And 8BitWaluigi, you're wrong. You can, but only some games, like Lair, for instance.

    Also, the game he's swearing he saw played on it is Dragon Ball Z Raging Blast 2. Easy bull, right?

    Yes, and 8bitWaluigi, that's why I said "some" [​IMG].
    Here's how it works, you don't need a PS3 controller connected to it or anything

    Easy bull. Check the list I posted for the Remote Play compatibility.
    Oh and Lair won't work 100%. You need the SixAxis.

    That was directed at PyroSpark since he obviously does not know how it works [​IMG].

    Thank you! I know it's obviously he's trolling because of the "continuing argument passionately with no logic" thing but ya know. >_> Just wanting confirmation.
