Tekken 2, Crash Bandicoot and More Downloadable PlayStation Classics
While we poor, wretched Europeans await the still too-long-off PS3 launch next March, our 'Mercan cousins are now enjoying downloadable PlayStation classics on the PSP, available now via the PS3 Store.

An update is planned to follow early next year to allow you to play PSone games on your PS3, but for now you can enjoy them on Sony's shiny hand-held. If you are American.

For a mere $5.99 (3.00) you can already download and transfer to your PSP via USB (to store on your Memory Stick) five fondly-remembered PS1 games, which are, in no particular order of merit, Tekken 2, Crash Bandicoot, Cool Boarders, Syphon Filter and Hot Shots Golf 2.

SPOnG wonders if this marks the start of a possible renaissance in the fortunes of the PSP. We'll be asking our American reviewers to take a look at this service in the coming weeks.

Sony is planning to put up a whopping seven thousand PSone titles on the PlayStation Store.

SPOnG will of course be letting you know more 'what, when and how' news on replaying your favourite PSone games as we get it.

I agree that Crash is trash. Call it Trash Bandicoot and you've got advertizing that doesn't lie!
