Details on the upcoming PSP PlayStation Store

Sony brings some great news for PSP owners out there dying for something else to play.

Gamesindustry.biz has learned that SCEA is developing at least seven new downloadable PlayStation Portable titles for the store. A source revealed that we can expect three action games, two music-based games, one racing and one shooting game, all developed internally for Sony’s portable. 

Sony is also courting third-party game makers to bring some new PSP titles to the portable version of the PlayStation Store.

On top of new PSP titles, Sony will be moving the PSone classics over from the PS3’s service. Let’s hope that they add a few new ones while they’re at it. We can also look forward to downloadable demos of UMD titles, additional game content, and movie trailers — again, much like the PS3’s service.

The best part about all of this is how easy it will be to access the store. Access will eventually be available through your home’s internet connection, wireless hotspots, and through your PC with a USB cable. 

The US will see the PC service available this winter, and the full portable version will be up later in 2008.
