Sony Gamers Day event certainly offered a lot of PSP news, and the long since rumor of an online store was finally brought back into the fold. SCEA president Jack Tretton briefly mentioned the possibility of an online store for the PSP, followed by a quick comment that it should have premiered awhile ago. No other details except he hoped "to have it out there by the fall." We know Sony has the upcoming Station Launcher for movie downloads so it was only a matter of time before their libraries opened up wider to incorporate games as well. No official word on if Station Launcher will also offer games, or if the games division will have a new service altogether. Lets just hope the powers that be are heeding Jack's word and diligently working on making this a reality sooner rather than later. We want not just PS1 reiterations, but PS2 classics as well, so get cracking!

I have to say that since so much of the emphasis coming from Sony seems to be PS3 related that I have little confidence of them doing this in a way to benefit us PSP (with no intent of buying a PS3) gamers.

txa1265...the PSP is making money for SONY so I'd expect them to try and milk it more not less. The better the integration the more cross over sales (especially PS3 owners buying a PSP) will occur.

as much as Sony appreciate you for sticking with the official firmware. How long will it take you to get it.
Sony won't let you do it without a PS3, time to join the Open Source world, bud. :)
It's not like you're doing anything legal, Just buy PS1 games and rip them yourself.
Well, that being said, I just got chrono cross and I think I will spend the next 40 hours on that. Sweet game so far tho. ;)

They should have done this a long time ago.

Chrono Cross doesn't let you save after the first disc, so you can't get to the second disc. Sorry.
