More PS Titles Ready For PlayStation Store
Christmas bells are ringing in the PlayStation Store, as Sony Japan has announced a new batch of titles that will be available tomorrow, December 21. Each one is priced at the standard 525 yen.
The list of newcomers is as follows:
- R-Types (Irem, shooter)
- Taiyo no Shippo (aka Tail of the Sun, Artdink, action)
- U-SA (Artdink, puzzle)
- Dino Crisis (Capcom, action-adventure)
- Global Force (SCE, sim)
- Gekisou Tomaranna (SCE, racing)
- Maru Oukoku no Ningyou Hime (Nippon Ichi, RPG)
- The Convenie Ano Machi wo Dokusen se yo (Hamster, sim)
- Mr. Driller (Bandai Namco Games, action)
As was the case before, remember you require a PS3 for the downloading, and they can only be played on a PSP. And for the games to function on the PSP, you must have already downloaded the latest PSP firmware update (v3.03). Sony is working on a PS3 firmware update in 2007 that would allow the downloaded PS1 games to work on the PS3 itself. There is also the possibility of a future PSP update that would let owners access the Store directly for download.The preceding list of games are currently only scheduled for the Japanese PlayStation Store; we'll let you know when and if they decide to release the games outside Japan.
