Those who update their PlayStation Portable to the newest firmware are in for a surprise. Wait, wait -- I might be overselling this. The update adds two new game folders to the handheld: "NEOGEO" and "PCEngine" (aka TurboGrafx 16).
So, really, the surprise is (hopefully) the promise of more retro titles for PSP, which we could always use more of. Or, it's a cruel mistake. I'm going with the former, because A) Neo Geo and TruboGrafx 16 games are on the Japanese PlayStation Network and B) the ESRB has listed some of these ports for the US.
My guess is this stuff has been held back by licensing until now; at least, I hope so. Sony has got to know many of us would gladly buy these games, right?
