The Sony PSP with UMD and Memory Stick
The PlayStation becomes portable on the PlayStation Portable

As a major addition to the 3.0 update for the PSP, Sony has revealed the pricing for original PSone games that can be downloaded and played on the PlayStation Portable.


The initial batch of games will run between $5.99 and $10.99, and first must be downloaded to the PlayStation 3 before loading onto the PSP. Game sizes will initially vary between 140MB and 550MB, so the user must have an appropriately-sized Memory Stick as a prerequisite.


No titles have been confirmed for the North American market, but the following list from the Japanese PlayStation Store may serve as some indication:

  • Resident Evil Director's Cut
  • Konami Antiques MSX Collection Vol.1
  • Konami Antiques MSX Collection Vol.2
  • Bishi Bashi Special
  • Arc the Lad
  • Jumping Flash
  • Minna no Golf 2 (aka Hot Shots Golf 2)
  • Silent Bomber
  • Tekken 2
  • Mister Driller

Sony plans on adding 10 downloadable games to its Japanese PlayStation Store every month, and we expect something similar for North America.
