I’ve never posted about this particular subject before, so I thought I would catch everybody up on the various PSOne games that Sony has made available to download to play on your PSP. From here on in, you can expect more regular posts on this subject as more games are released.
That being said… I figure that I should also mention right away that you do need a PS3 in order to take advantage of this service (Sony has claimed that they are looking into other methods to get the games onto your PSP). Basically, you need to use your PS3 to surf on over to the PlayStation Store and you can go from there. The games aren’t free, but with pricetags in the $5.99 USD range, it’s not too bad!
So far, the list of games that I’ve been able to come up with so far are: (and please let me know if I’ve missed any)
- Cool Boarders
- Crash Bandicoot
- Hot Shots Golf 2
- Jet Moto
- Jumping Flash
- Rally Cross
- Syphon Filter
- Tekken 2
I have to say that it’s a rather interesting list of games that Sony has decided to make available for download. I’m not too sure that I completely understand their decision on MediEvil, considering that there already is a game in the series available specifically for the PSP, MediEvil Resurrection. Other than that, the games selected go across several genres, so there should be a little something to keep almost everyone satisfied.
Oh, and one other thing… your PSP needs to have firmware 3.0 or higher.[via Kotaku]
