Sony confirms PSP Minis for PS3

Mid-December firmware has emulator.

Sony has confirmed that PSP Minis will be compatible with the PlayStation 3 from 17th December. The next PS3 firmware update will come with a Minis emulator that will enable users to download the digital games for use on the PS3 as well as the PSP.

PSP Minis are 100MB or smaller digital games that launched alongside the PSPgo. Sony has said on its European blog that the "majority" of the current games available will work on the PS3 when the firmware update launches.

"If you buy a Minis game from the 17th it will work on both platforms so if you have a PS3 and PSP you will only need to buy it once and it will be available to download to your PS3 and your PSP," PlayStation Network product manager James Thorpe confirmed via the blog.

Users that have already bought a Minis game for their PSP however will still be able to play the game on a PS3 by going to their download list in the Store and downloading the game again for free.

The Minis emulator is one of two key features the new firmware update 3.15 will introduce. The second feature will be a PS3 data transfer feature that will allow users to easier transfer saved data from one PS3 console to another.
