Sony has said that adding 3D support to PSP games played on PSP via its new 'PSP Remaster' program is easy and may be supported in future.
The Remaster Program, announced in May, will see PSP games remade for PS3 with added HD visuals and save-game transferring support - essentially letting you choose to play your games on the big or small screen.
Teiji Yutaka, a developer on the project, told Famitsu magazine: "There's a group within the Software Solutions department that specializes in 3D graphics," adding, "When they first saw the Remaster project, they suggested that they might be able to insert 3D graphics inside there."
According to Yutaka, they did it and it was a piece of cake. "They managed to implement it with hardly any hit to performance and processing speed at all, and I don't think that would've been possible without the processing power of the PS3," he said.
Colleague Tadayasu Hakamatani chimed in: "There wasn't much rejiggering we had to do to make 3D work, but some games need to be reworked because the way they're programmed prevent them from working in 3D out of the box. It's possible to add 3D graphical information to games via the PSP Engine OS, though, so support can be added without a lot of extra burden."
The first PSP Remaster-enabled game is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd HD Ver., which hits Japanese shop shelves on August 25.
