Default TR Anniversary PS2 Pre-Alpha and PSP Pre-Alpha Discs

Here's the comment from Dynamic_Derek. I thought it deserves its own thread and wasn't relevant to Core's TRAE :

I should also be able to show the PSP Multiplayer working using an emulator on my PC. When I get that going I can post some videos of that as well. I loved working on the game and I am happy to be able to share some early footage to fans.
Some videos from their own channel : https://www.youtube.com/@DerekManning/featured

I'm guessing it would probably just be PSP exclusive multiplayer challenges like Legend.



Though if they added the feature to the PC and Xbox360 versions (PS3 version in the Trilogy pack didn't exist yet, and almost no games used the PS2's online networking function) it would have been a great treat and a way to extend the life of the game.

Then again making PC/360 quality levels for the challenges as well as the PSP versions is twice as much work, and Anniversary had a comparatively short development time. Especially with them adding new mechanics and areas to some versions like the Wii.

Thanks for your reply because it makes total sense.

Wow I didn't even know this existed! Thanks for sharing. It would be awesome if the multiplayer concept could somehow be brought to the PC by the community.
