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.

The problem as a PSP owner that I don't like about this is even with a memory card reader on my computer I can't trasnfer these to my PSP from the computer. So for my $250 purchase to play old games I have to purchase a $600 piece of hardware. On top of that even with two very similar machines with only a Hard drive capacity issue, I can't even purchase the cheaper machine I would have to purchase the $600 piece.

Trust me this Legal Game Classics from all these companies are very smart moves. I would say that old Nitendo Classics stick in the mind a little longer (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, and such) but they all great moves. But one requires $250 machine, one requires a $300 machine, and the Final one requires $850 worth of hardware.

as a poster stated above, sony might cut out the need of PS3 for PSP emulation with a future firmware.

as an owner of a 20GB ps3, it's possible to connect the PS3 wirelessly using an usb wireless adapter. Now under the XMB, there's no REMOTE PLAY option for the 20GB version, but I don't see why Sony wouldn't enable that feature with a future firmware upgrade.
