Apparently in the past many PSP users clamoured for the ability to download content directly from the PSP store to their PSPs instead of using the PS3 as a go-between. Seems like a pain in the ass, especially if you don’t own a PS3 just yet. Now the news is here: Sony has announced the PSP store will be available sometime in the future for direct use on the PSP via a WiFi connection.
Chris Eden, SCEA’s senior developer relations account manager, let this little tidbit leak during a talk at this year’s GDC. I’d like to be excited about the prospect, but I think there needs to be content in the PSN store that I actually want to buy first. I love the Patapon demo and I’ve played it to death, but beyond that there isn’t much to download. I think I feel brave enough to say it, in fact: Why don’t you focus on making more games instead of other services, Sony?
