PSP usable as virtual PS3?

A Sony Computer Entertainment executive, Izumi Kawanishi, has told Nikkei BP that links between the PSP and PS3 may go well beyond downloads and extra gameplay functions. "It's possible to have distribution of video imagery from the PS3 to PSP," Kawanishi says. "In other words, images that are rendered on the PS3 will be sent to the PSP via wireless LAN. If the PS3 is something like a home server that's placed in the center of your home, the PSP is an information terminal that you carry with you." BP interprets this as the transfer of 3D images - could we soon be playing PS3-rendered games on our PSP's? Lag might be a significant concern, as might development headaches and the PSP's simplified control scheme. Still, the prospect of playing Assassin's Creed on a PSP is extremely tempting.
