When I first purchased a Sony PSP, all I wanted to do was play classic PSOne games on it. Needless to say, I’ve been fairly disappointed since games like Final Fantasy VII and Xenogears never got ported over to the PSP. Fortunately, Sony has taken measures to change that by allowing users to download PSOne games off of the online PlayStation Store. Right now you can download Tekken 2, Syphon Filter, Crash Bandicoot, CoolBoarders and Hot Shots Golf 2.
Sony says more games will be available later this month, and that it will continue to expand the PSOne library over time. The games are fairly cheap too, running at $5.99 a piece. The bad news is you need a PlayStation 3 to access the online PlayStation Store, so if you don’t have one, you’re out of luck.
