PSP To Receive Downloadable Games

Setting a first for a mainstream handheld, the PSP will gain exclusive downloadable titles when the service goes live next year. Standard fare for PS3 users, these fresh titles will join original PlayStation games now available if you own a PS3 and can access the hardware via the portable.

Games are planned to be up to half the size of UMD titles, which come in 1.8 gigs. Thankfully, memory stick prices have dropped dramatically since the PSP’s launch.
