Software Manual


Lots of PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) software titles feature Ad Hoc Mode, which allows two or more players - each with a copy of the same title - to play together or share content via a wireless connection between their PSP™ systems. Before the introduction of adhocParty for PlayStation®Portable, players had to be in the same place, with their PSP™ systems no more than 10 metres apart, to enjoy Ad Hoc Mode.

adhocParty changes that. Now you can connect your PSP™ system to another PSP™ system anywhere in the world, using your PlayStation®3 system as a server to bridge the geographical divide. This means that you can make the most of the Ad Hoc Mode functions in some of your favourite software titles even when none of your friends or fellow players are close by. Simply connect your PSP™ system to a broadband internet-enabled PlayStation®3 system via a wireless network connection, then access adhocParty to find other players who want to play the same game as you.

NOTE: adhocParty does not support online play via Infrastructure Mode. To find out how to access a title's Infrastructure Mode functions, please refer to the software instruction manual supplied with the title. Not all titles support Infrastructure Mode.
