    i like the being able to transfer to another PSP 5x....but after 5x, will it lock yours also and can you re-download it (for free maybe) if you get a new PS3???

    ....and you know someone will make a crack/hack to make it unlimited.

    So basically if you want to play these very reasonably priced retro games, you have to spend about $1000 on a PS3 and PSP plus the needed accessories... I love big business logic.

    Or I could check eBay and get the old games there for probably the same price and play them on any Playstation, how's that?

    I'd pay $6 per game if Sony would allow me to download the games to my PSP without the use of a PS3.

    They've already said future firmware updates will allow the PSP to download w/o the PS3

    Dind't they mention that they're working on an emulator for the PS3 to allow the games to run on the system, without playing them on a PSP?

    500 megs? Who are they trying to fool? The portable PS1 emulators for pocketpc and PSP compress the ISOs to under 50 megs and they play fine.

    Couldn't they have released better games? I fail to see the point in releasing older versions of games that have next-gen sequels. Those titles aren't exactly "classics" that everyone and their mother wants to play.

    The price is nice. The selection, unfortunatly, leaves a lot to be desired. Cool Boarders? Seriously?

    Here's an interesting idea: how about making some good, original PSP games?

    Most of those go towards the DS with it's higher fan base and the fact that Nintendo's been doing handheld for years. Combine this with Sony being retarded with what games they'll port over here, and you have a pretty worthless system.

    And screw Tekken 2, Tekken 3 kills it. Still have an unopened copy of FFVII since my other copy is all scratched to hell .

    How about this, instead of paying to download Tekken 2, go out and buy Tekken 5, it's like $20 now, and there you get to play Tekken 2, as well as Tekken 1 and Tekken 3. That's $5 a Tekken, sounds like a good deal to me.
