It’s inevitable that the PSP will have a successor, and it goes without saying that it will be a powerful device (by some reports the chipset within will be between the power of the original Xbox and the 360). But a handheld needs more that just power to be successful. Also for today’s world the PSP brand needs to evolve to compete with not just the DS, but the iPhone that corners the market with music and keeping in touch; and is moving head first into the games industry.

Metal Gear Solid
Release Date on PSN:June 18th 2009
Original Release date: October 21st 1998
Metal Gear is applauded for its story, it’s complex, grown up, well written, but the voice acting is top notch, and that’s a real rarity on the PSone. It centers around a covert operative named Snake, who is brought out of retirement to remedy a situation happening on an Island off of the coast of Alaska. There are many twists and turns in the story, betrayals, characters that are really developed well; this is not the same old story telling that was the norm in games at the time.
If you have a PSP, you now have a portable playstation 1. The emulator does an excellent job with most titles meaning you can be sobbing over Final Fantasy 7’s story while taking the bus. Just make sure you have a decent sized memory stick and a packet of tissues…
PS1 games are getting a little long in the tooth so the graphics aren’t as pretty as they once were. Luckily with the PS3 in your corner PS1 games are smoothed over to look extra pretty. The PSP is no slouch either; because of the smaller screen PSone classics look great and can keep you immersed longer than those same graphics thrown up onto a big screen. That’s why it’s best to play them on your PSP system.
Hello there, here it the Playstation store update for today.
Sony has decided that they’ll drop the price to half for 10 of their games, Critter crunch seems like it could be a good one. Also the Metal Gear Portable ops bundle certainly seems like a deal.
Sadly only one PSOne Classic out, and because it’s a fishing simulator I’m not too excited about it. Where’s Vagrant Story?
What are PS One Classics?
PS One Classics are original Playstation (PSX) games that are released for digital download. Sony started releasing PSOneClassics on the Playstation Network when it debuted in 2006. But the big launch of titles stared at the 2009 E3 conference in California. Japan had received hundreds of original playstation titles for download to play on the PSP and PS3 systems by this point, but North America and Europe had only a few.
