It's such a funny name. I just like saying it.
And it's a great idea, too: "transfarring" will let you transfer your game saves from the PlayStation 3 to the PSP and the upcoming PlayStation Vita, giving us more incentive to own both gaming devices. This feature will first support Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker . It's way cool and here's the good news: according to a recent Kojima Productions podcast , "transfarring" will be available in all future Kojima titles. Said Kojima:
"We have a plan moving forward, where all of our major titles will have this transfarring functionality. So you’ll buy the next big game from Kojima Productions on PS3, and there’ll also be an NGP version [PSVita] and take it on the go."
That sounds like something the hardcore MGS fans are gonna love; why not take our favorite games on the go? Why not play 'em in our living rooms, "transfar" them to our handheld device, and keep playing outside the home? It's a brave new world and although we don't like all the new advancements, this one seems like a winner.
And does it mean Rising will hit the Vita…?
