Future SCEI PSP games downloadable

Simultaneously with UMD launch.

Sony Japan has decided to offer all first-party PSP games as downloads at the same time as UMD release.

The first example of this will arrive on 15th October alongside the direct access PSP Store, which cuts out the need to go through PC or PS3 for the content.

Games to arrive include Patapon 2, LocoRoco 2, Resistance: Retribution and a bunch of the new titles we saw videos of earlier.

The Japanese fondness for the PSP will also be rewarded by a new "Ad-hoc Party!" feature that online multiplayer by going remotely through the PS3.

The media hub ideas don't end there, either. Resistance: Retribution (PSP) and Resistance 2 (PS3) have been given special features to reward people connecting both games and systems together.

There's no word on any of the PSP Store or "Ad-hoc Party!" features for Europe just yet.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our policy.
