    There's a device for the GBA that allows it to be hooked up to the TV. I don't know if it'll work for the DS, though, and if you'll probably need to hold the DS at a funny angle so you can see the TV and the stylus screen at the same time.
    There was an article on the teletext games pages about this last week. It seems like a nice idea to have powerful handheld consoles than can double as a home console on the TV.

    The PSP is almost a generation behind and the DS two at least. Most people have a home console as well so there seems little point.

    it'd be good to play wipeout pure on the tv. I'm sure you can do it, just wonder how.

    True enough, but the technology is getting smaller and more energy efficient so it's entirely possible for a merged machine to appear. Besides, the quality of the graphics on the PSP are good enough for some people to want to hook it up to the TV, lower resolution or not.

    The PS3 MIGHT be able to connect with the PSP. So it might mean an adaptor for PSP games played through the PS3.

    There's no way to do it atm though

    emphasis on rumoured. A UMD is what? 1.8gb? I think that would be too small for the PS3's requirements. Of course, all this is speculation on my part

    I dont understand this thread. There is no way currently to connect these things to a TV. Backwards compatabilty with PSP - PS3 seems exceptionaly unlikely. I cant see why wou would want to do it. These are handheld devices :rolleyes:

    I believe the compatibility is along the lines of the GC and GBA, you can connect the PSP up and use it as a controller. This really is the best way to go, as games like Zelda : Four Swords really show what you can do with that kind of hook up!

    It wont be very comfortable. The PSP is pretty heavy I dont think I would want to use it as a controller for extended periods.

    There's always been peole who want to hook up their handhelds to the TV in one form or another - Super Gameboy, That drive for GBA carts on the GC and the various TV out kits for the GBA.
    I'd like to get one for the GBA, it's nice to relax your eyes and focus them on a large TV now and again
