    psp Full downloadable games coming to UK?

    via pspfanboy

    YourPSP's official PSP Store is Europe's premiere destination for PSP downloads. It's provided us with a great number of downloadable demos and other goodies. However, it looks to be getting an overhaul. What new upgrades might the site be receiving? Full downloadable games, if this page from the UK PlayStation site is to be believed.

    To the right of the page, links to downloadable demos of Loco Roco, Killzone and Ridge Racer 2 can be found. But more interesting are the descriptions for Wipeout: Pure and Go! Sudoku: "Download full game now."

    Sony has promised that the PLAYSTATION Store would one day find its way to PSP. As they've shown with the PS3, full downloadable games are a crucial part of Sony's strategy. Could Europe be the first region to receive downloadable retail games? If so, how will it work? When will it expand to other countries? Was the web version of the PLAYSTATION Store the beginning of something bigger? Stay tuned for more.

    I bet that most of the contributions of this would go towards piracy.

    I mean, full download-able games, that's just asking to get attacked by the cracking teams.

    But what could they do? People can already download games and put them on their mem stick. PS1 got cracked because it could be used to play games not released by sony on the psp. All Psp games are playable on the psp so there's not going to be much of point to crack anything.
    Its true that they could copy the game easier. And people who don't know how to use UMD dumpers cold easily distribute the game. I think Sony's on to something here.

    Once again, SONY takes a page from the homebrew scene. PSP games play wonderfully off of a memory stick and SONY knows it.

    If SONY would provide a PDF manual for the games and make 8GB memory sticks cheaper I'd buy more PSP games, especially in a downloadable format.

    I believe this will save sony alot more money than expanding on the already dead UMD format

    ya, but doesn't that mean that people can go on torrents sites and download them for free and they wouldn't need an exploit or anything to play them?
