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.

"Yet the Wii is lauded with praise for being able to play such games."

Don't forget that was a major selling point for the Wii. The PS3 has been touted for next-gen gaming, not for retro gaming. However the decision to give the PSP another function now that the PSP movie format has pretty much died is a good plan for Sony to get some more use out of the device. That's just where fans of the console differ, show me a person who likes Nintendo and I'll show you a really retro gamer.

I love my PSP, i hate the idiot software companies for not making more games for it.

I love Sony for letting me buy my favorite "old" games to play on my favorite game system (PSP).

I'm not concerned about the console wars. Unless someone makes a WIIPlayXBox360Station3 I'll stick with my PC.
