    Smile PSOne Emulator for PSP Massive Back Catalogue Looms

    Source Spong

    Speaking at the PlayStation meeting, Sony Computer Entertainment chief Ken Kutaragi confirmed long-standing rumours that a massive PlayStation back-catalogue will come available for the PSP. Read the full report on all the PSP announcements here.

    Since then, some further details have emerged regarding SCE's plans to monetise its pre-existing IP. The only comments to date from official sources have confirmed first-party titles will be available, though it's a certainty that the third-parties still in existence and not bound by over-complex mergers agreements will queue up to cash in.

    The games will be made available in digital form only and distributed via the web from a soon to be announced Sony portal. They will be bought 'for keeps' by consumers and stored on Sony Memory Stick, with users able to keep a single game for as long as he or she feels fit.

    Several Japanese retailers have indicated to SPOnG that Sony will sell new SMS cards in stores, each coming with a specified number of game download credits, though we are unable to add anything more to this at time of press.

    One uncertainty is how Sony will keep the rampant PSP hacker community from pulling apart its legitimate operation. With the PlayStation games in ROM form, a significant investment into digital security will be required if the IP is to escape the hackers and subsequent illegal, revenue-free distribution via torrent and peer-to-peer groups.

    Expect the full skinny on this interesting take on PSP sideways and back a bit compatibility to emerge at E3 if not a shade before.

    A Full on PSOne Emulator running at full speed on the PSP Will be awesome, what i would hope is that those of us who already have the legal versions of the games would somehow be able to transfer them to the Mem Card under some type of validation process. Isnt it Funny that Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft are now using Emulators on there new consoles, maybe we should petition for a patent :P

    You know, that patent idea is a clever one, but knowing Sony and the bigshots, they are probably in the process already!

    OMG! FF& on the PSP, SWEET!

    Wow, you took that completely out of context. There is no emulator, they are porting the games to PSP. I suggest you read everything in the press conference and you'll find that they never even mentioned "emulator". And as another note, PlayStation games are CD games, not catridges, therefore they can't be in ROM form. They must be in ISO form. Do you really think Sony would throw away their games in ISO format? No. The games are being ported.

    these games being "unhacked" is unevitable. there will be some way that they will be exploited

    wha.....this makes no sense....they must be simply porting games, there are wayyy to many problems with manking an emu and selling roms
    A) whos gonna buy them?! lets say you want to get the FFVII ISO/rom...its over 2GB!!!!!! that means you have to pay around $30 for the rom, and $200+ for a mem stick to hold it!, uhhh no thanks
    B) with the massivie amount of hacking thats happened for PSP sony isn't gonna put sumthing like this out there, it would be so easy for people to disect it and then just play illigal playstation ISO's with it
    C) the downloads, Sony would have to set up some kind of download system that makes it immposible to give the iso/rom to someone else once you buy it....thats reallly hard to do
    In conclusion I would really like to see PSone games on PSP, but I really hope sony just ports them...it would be so much easier and make alot more sense (and cost about $200 less for people that don't own a 2GB mem stick)

    Scary to see Sony do something that might make sense for once. I'm giddy about the idea of playing PSOne games on PSP. By the end of the year 8GB Pro Duo sticks will be out and the new PSP will have 4GB internal storage.

    It will be interesting to see how it plays out. But I'm not abandoning the homebrew scene and upgrading.... EVER. Of course this will require firmware updates.

    PacManFan, where art though?
