The original black label Tekken 2
Now you can use your state of the art gaming devices to play games from 10 years ago

Drawing upon its decade-long history in gaming, SCEA has launched an initial lineup of five classic PlayStation titles that can be downloaded via the PlayStation Network and played on the PSP system.

The following first and third-party PlayStation titles can now be purchased for $5.99 from the PlayStation Store accessed through the PS3 system and played on the PSP system: Cool Boarders, Crash Bandicoot, Hot Shots Golf 2, Syphon Filter and Tekken 2.

Additional first and third-party PlayStation titles will be added on an ongoing basis to the PlayStation Store, with a second batch of PlayStation titles slated for release later this month.

"Downloadable PlayStation emulated games on the PSP is just the beginning, but it underscores our vision for leveraging the wide breadth of content that's available from the PlayStation brand, and delivers value to gamers well beyond the initial purchase of their PS3 and PSP," said Peter Dille, senior vice-president product marketing of SCEA. "We built every system with a hard disk drive and offer every customer free access to the PlayStation Store so they can experience the full extent of the PlayStation library. We'll offer additional PlayStation games to the PlayStation Store on a regular basis."

The U.S. PlayStation Store’s lineup of downloadable games differs from the one offered in Japan. In addition to having Tekken 2 and Hot Shots Golf 2 that we have, the Japanese store offers Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Jumping Flash, Arc the Lad and Mister Driller.

*rolls eyes*

I wouldn't be surprised if they "praised" Nintendo for their announcement a long time ago...because apparently they will let you play games 20 years old on their latest system.

I personally think its a good thing - classics and fun games will forever remain that way; so whether or not I'm playing NES games on a Wii shouldn't matter so as long as I have fun and its decently priced (6 bucks for Tekken 2? While I prefer Tekken 3, on average I spent ten to twelve dollars on DINNER...making Tekken 2 a steal for the price)

Give Sony credit where its due - the chance to play low cost PSX classics on your PSP is a good thing. Otherwise we should scream bloody murder that Nintendo wants 5$ 8$ and 10$ USD for NES, SNES, and N64 games for the Wii

I think this is a good deal too.

My question is-how does Sony's DRM work? Nintendo's is draconian, and basically has no method of deathorizing one unit to authorize a new one. I know Sony lets you authorize multiple units, but I don't know if you can DEauthorize them.

"Game reviewers fought each other to write the most glowing coverage possible for the powerhouse Sony, MS systems. Reviewers flipped coins to see who would review the Nintendo Wii. The losers got stuck with the job." -- Andy Marken
