Ad-Hoc Party Now Supports A Ton Of Titles

By Spencer . December 18, 2008 . 6:19am


So, Dissidia: Final Fantasy is out today and of course it’s compatible with Sony’s Ad Hoc-Party. However, Sony didn’t update Ad Hoc-Party just to support the Final Fantasy fighter. Ad Hoc-Party 1.04 supports a bucket load of PSP games now. New games like LocoRoco 2 and Patapon 2 are on the list along with classics such as Street Fighter Alpha 3: Double Upper and Me & My Katamari. Even games that don’t have co-op play like Echochrome work with Ad-Hoc Party so you can trade levels over the Internet instead of in person.


How can you join the party? You need a PlayStation 3 with built in wireless (sorry 20GB owners) and a Japanese PSN account. The Ad-Hoc Party client is free to download on the PlayStation Store. Once it’s installed on your PS3 you can use it to play ad hoc PSP games over the internet similar to using X-Link Kai.




Here’s the full list of games Ad-Hoc Party 1.04 supports. Please note that these are Japanese games so compatibility may differ with releases from other regions.

    Isn’t it a bit weird that a successful console can’t get proper online support, while it’s money burning cousin not only gets one but also some kind of online service adapter for the former?

    It might be cheaper for Sony this way, but I can’t imagine why a consumer would prefer this to a Sony sponsored PSP online gaming infrastructure.

  • preessstart

    I don’t have a PS3 nor a PSP, but this is a very good idea. Why customers would support this? Because it’s retroactive! You can’t really just add internet play to existing PSP games, so this function is very cool. Nintendo needs to do this with the Wii and DS. Too bad for the friend code crap. Maybe with the Wii codes?

    I just want to know if an when Sony will bring this idea to the US.
