adhocParty for PSP Available Soon

Kristin Neirinckx's Avatar Posted by Marketing Manager, PSP

Hi everyone! Great news for all of you Ad Hoc fans out there –adhocParty for the PSP system, which first launched in Japan last year, is coming to North America! AdhocParty is an online service that allows PSP owners with a PS3 system to connect to one another via the PlayStation Network. It will be available as a free download on the PlayStation Store soon.

So, how does adhocParty work? PSP titles with adhoc mode traditionally require you to play within close proximity to each other. AdhocParty takes advantage of the interoperable capabilities of the PSP and PS3 systems. It enables you to play games featuring Ad Hoc mode, such as Gran Turismo and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, over the Internet through the PS3. Your PSP connects to the PS3 via Wi-Fi, allowing you to chat online with fellow gamers in North America before jumping into competition from the comforts of each of your respective living rooms.

In addition to all of its competitive and social gaming features, adhocParty for PSP supports voice chat through the Wireless Headset or PlayStation Eye, offering you a complete and immersive gaming experience only available on the PlayStation platform.

We’ll have more details for you soon. Enjoy!

Funny, just yesterday I was looking at the JP Ad-hoc. Too bad my PS3 is not within range of my modem to hook it up via LAN, so I probably won’t get much use out of it, anyway.

SPOOKULA209 said:

remanutd5 said:

November 13th, 7:43 am

good job sony , i have found myself dedicating a lot more game time to my psp go than before ( partly because of all the great games that just came out on the system ) and their online functionalities and with this feature i will take other games like Gran Turismo online , thank you

SPARDA said:

November 13th, 7:43 am

kmkaizen said:

November 13th, 7:44 am

Guessing this is a typo “adhocParty for PSP supports voice chat through the Wireless Headset of PlayStation Eye,”. Guessing there should be an “or” instead of an “of” in that sentence

LeoDaLyon said:

November 13th, 7:49 am

All I can say is, It’s about freakin’ time!

bigpezz said:

November 13th, 7:49 am

“Close proximity” is a redundant phrase!


November 13th, 7:50 am

So let me get this straight, any PSP game that plays Ad-Hoc, can not in turn be played as Infrastructure with this new feature? If so, then this is awesome news!!

Alee634 said:

Finally yes!

About flippin’ time! Now if the go was about $100 cheaper, i would get a new PSP to prep for it.

Trigg said:

November 13th, 7:54 am

Finally! This is great news. Wish I didn’t have to use a wired connection to use it but still great news.

Dice_for_Death_ said:

November 13th, 7:54 am

Wow. It took long enough. I was not expecting to wake up to this news. Astounding. +1, Sony.

Ausohoj said:

November 13th, 7:58 am

YES!!!!!! Now, when’s it coming out?

SpiritThief said:

November 13th, 8:01 am

So this means I don’t have worry about wifi for my online gaming on the PSP? Or will this only be for supported titles? Meaning blacklogs are left in the dust.

If so then I think I will finally get one.

Sigmakan said:

November 13th, 8:02 am

Great news, very unexpected.

rdrusty54 said:

November 13th, 8:02 am
