TGS: All PSP games to be downloadable

Sony has confirmed that all of its future UMD PSP titles will be released simultaneously for download on the upcoming PSP Store – which, incidentally, has been given a Japanese launch date of October 15th.

CVG reports that SCEJ’s Destroy All Heroes 2 will be the first title to be made available for download in conjunction with its retail release on October 15th. Other titles already confirmed for the dual policy include Secret Agent Clank, LocoRoco 2 and Resistance: Retribution.

However, despite the ongoing criticism levelled at UMD, and recent moves from third party publishers to bypass the UMD market, Sony has so far remained committed to the format.

In other PSP news, Pocket Gamer reports that Sony has also stated that it plans to introduce Dualshock 3 support for the PSP, meaning gamers will be able to wirelessly link up their PS3 joypad to the machine. The first title to support the feature will be Resistance: Retribution – which is, unsurprisingly, a first person shooter.
