Sony NGP To Get Older PSP Games


Posted January 31, 2011 - By Stephen Johnson

PSP2, PSP, PSP Go, NGP: A History of Sony's PlayStation Portables

There are a lot of cool features planned for the Sony's upcoming portable system (Codename: NGP), but you'll notice something missing from the device: A UMD slot, so the games you bought for your "last generation" PSP won't be playable on whatever Sony ends up calling the NGP. But don't worry: there will still be a couple options for playing older games on your new generation system.

In an interview, Sony said it's working with third-party publishers to release their titles in downloadable form through the PlayStation Store, something that's been a bit of an ongoing process since the release of the PlayStation Go, the last iteration of the PlayStation Portable.

The second option for playing older games on your newer system: PSP games on the NGP's card-based format.

Sony says it's "investigating the possibilities" of whether you'll have to re-buy games you already purchased on the UMD format. I imagine the investigation will result in "Yes. Of course you will" but I can't say that for sure.

I don't get too jazzed about older game. With a couple exceptions, I don't "re-visit" older games very often, tending, instead to try something new as opposed to return to the games I liked in times past. What about your guys? Do you play older games at all?
