PSP and PS2 To Feature Connectivity

It's not all bad news for the PSP this week as Sony has said that the PSP would feature connectivity with the PS2 and PSX home consoles. This feature would allow games to be played on the home systems, with save games being moved to the PSP so that play could be continued on the handheld system - exploiting the fact that the PSP's hardware is broadly similar in specification to the PS2.

Word has it that porting code from the PS2 to the PSP is extremely easy, and in fact developers working on PSP titles in the UK have said that moving their games and engines to the handheld system from the PS2 has turned out to be a surprisingly simple task.

Sony has also said that rather than porting existing PS2 software, they will be emphasising originality for the system. In fact, rumor has it that they won't allow any ports on the system in the first six months to a year of its launch, in an attempt to avoid it being labelled as a shovelware PS2 port system by consumers and the media.
