Sony christened the launch of Monster Hunter Portable 3rd with a Monster Hunter skinned version of Adhoc Party, a PlayStation 3 app that lets PSP owners play ad-hoc games online.
This version of Adhoc Party has lobbies designed after six Monster Hunter field types: mountain stream, sandy plain, a lone island, submerged forest, tundra, and volcano.
Monster Hunter lobbies are a bit different from regular lobbies. These rooms only support four players (other lobbies support up to eight) and have special icons for different types of Monster Hunter weapons. Sony also plans to update PlayStation Home to allow players to bootup Adhoc Party for a Monster Hunter meetup within their virtual world. This feature is scheduled for December 16.
