More Download Info via Gamesindustry
Sony’s head of platform development in Japan, Izumi Kawanishi, has stated that the upcoming PSP download service will operate via Wi-Fi-enabled PCs as well as the PS3, and is due this November.
Original PlayStation games will be downloadable and Kawanishi reports the PSP has no problem running them via an emulator, according to an interview with NikkeiBP.
Kawanishi also states that the PSP download service, which is set to include movies as well as full original PlayStation games, is scheduled to launch in conjunction with the PlayStation 3.
With broadband becoming more widespread, Kawanishi explained that digital distribution was a realistic service that the PlayStation 3 could utilise in its role as a central home server - as well as a traditional games console.
Sony declined to offer further comment on Kawanishi's statements.
