After this, Kojima showed off his brand new engine, called the Fox Engine.

The final thing Kojima showed was his new data transfer and save system, known as “transfarring”. To demonstrate the system, Kojima and A friend transferred Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker save data from the PSP to the PS3, and vice versa. This system will allow players to continue A game from where they left off on their PSP if they need to leave the console, and when they return they can transfer that save data back onto the PS3 where the user can continue to play. The HD Collections on PS3 will support the transfarring system.
