    Hey all,

    So two questions in one - does anyone have a list of the confirmed European PSP launch titles? I got my PSP about 6 months ago but after getting FIFA,Tiger Woods, Ridge Racer, Twisted Metal Head On and WipeOut pure I stopped, mainly for two reasons. Firslty out of the above only Twisted Metal supported infrastrucutre mode (Wireless) which IMO is shocking ! Secondly when playing ad-hoc you need to have the same region games - again a real pain for this region free story from Sony ! I've held off getting any more games for the PSP as I want to be able to ad-hoc (at the very least) game with a few mates who Im sure will be getting a PSP !! I travel to the states on business quite a lot and again it was a time for buying PSP games, probably not anymore unless they remove the ad-hoc problem !!

    Hopefully some of the titles coming down the pipe in the Euro launch will support infrastructure mode?

    I would never have bought Twisted Metal had it not been for the Infrastrucuture mode - and believe me it rocks when you realise that you are sitting in wi-fi hotspot playing someone online !!!

    Yeah legends comes out the 16th i think, same day as burnout 4:revenge for the other consoles. I think the only other game that is missing from that list which has been confirmed is F1 (8 player wireless).

    And how many will support infrastructure mode - I bet not many, probably under 10% if that ?

    Only Twisted Metal supports infastructure as far as I know.

    As for problems with multiplayer regions, that's not Sony. That happens with nearly all portable games. DS. GB. GBA. Happens with them all.

    In US I think 2 baseball games support it. Not relevant to UK I know, but seeing as PSP has been out in US since March and I have one less thumb than games that support infrastructure in US...well you get my point

    I think developers want
    a) a game that would make sense to have in infrastructure
    b) implememntation? Need to understand PSP hardware a bit more?

    Edit: and money from the Publishers

    Ooh, I forgot. NBA supports Infastructure mode too. I had the game briefly, and though it looked decent, basketball isn't my cup of tea. I tried online once but no users were found.
