Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Will PSP/PS3 Remasters be Followed by PSP/NGP Remasters?

It's not a massive leap of logic to conclude that what Sony is now doing with Monster Hunter Portable 3 Remaster for the PS3, and other games, it can also do for the NGP. Rather than just put the old PSP versions on the  NGP's PSN store, it can sell at a premium these upgraded versions and help publishers whose PSP games sold okay, but not stunningly drag some more life out of their titles.

Not only will this help fill out the release schedules and nudge gamers into upgrading, if you ignore the odious spectre of us paying for those games again, its an attractive proposition. While all the obvious candidates like Metal Gear, God of War and Final Fantasy will be at the top of most owner's lists, it would help bring back to NGP developers who had a shot at PSP and didn't get the greatest of rewards from it.

A final thought on this, could folk playing on a PSP play against those using the NGP version, allowing people to keep using their PSP's and keep their old games for friends and family to help enjoy some multiplayer fun and save the old console from the dust pile.
