PSP adhocParty Coming Soon to North America


Originally launched last year in Japan, adhocParty is Sony’s PlayStation Network service granting PSP owners the ability to play some of their Ad Hoc-only multiplayer games online via the PS3’s built-in Wi-Fi connection, even allowing for additional support of voice chat with PS3 peripherals like the official wireless headset and PlayStation Eye camera.

Finally, this service is coming to North America as a free download, Sony confirmed on the PlayStation blog this morning. A specific date hasn’t been pinpointed, but it will supposedly be available on the PlayStation Store “soon.” Once it hits I’ll definitely be going through some of my Ad Hoc games, like Gran Turismo, to see how they work. Hopefully this will be the cure to my lack of local PSP gamers to play with.
