View Full Version : PokerRoom via the PSP?

Is it possible? I believe it can handle Java, think I read that somewhere. PokerRoom offers the java interface. I logged in, opened the Java client but only get the bottom of the page.

Anyone look into this or read anything about this?

That was quick and sweet. Got a little excited before going to bed I suppose. Someone will come up with a hack.

If a browser works, I dont see why pokerroom would not run on it.

Joshua Keller writes "The v2.0 firmware update for the Sony PSP is finally out, ending the saga of one of the most-talked about firmware revisions I can remember. The update features a web browser for the PSP and support for AAC files, amongst other improvements."

Ya know, I read that about a week ago and searched the web high and low for any more info. The capability has to be there if the PSP will utilize Java platforms. I can't believe someone else either hasn't thought of it or at least addressed it.

The PSP browser does not have Java support. Pokerroom relies on the Java plug-in to work inside a browser.

If the PSP did support Java, it might also be limited to the Java 2 Micro Edition, a stripped down version of the language intended for mobile phones and such. At the very least this would require a port.

So, you think even if it did support java poker room would have to do something on their side as well? Similar to what they have going with their mobile software?
