Sony confirms PSP online store enroute

Sony PSP Online Store

Sony will have an online shop for its PSP handheld, the company has confirmed at its Gamers Day event in San Diego. While owners of its much larger PS3 console have had access to an online PlayStation Store since the November launch, the PSP has been excluded from using its Wi-Fi for such a service despite launching in 2004. SCEA head Jack Tretton admitted frustration with the PSP's artificially limited connection options when speaking with journalists.

"I think the advent of a long awaited and quite frankly long overdue ability to deliver a downloadable service for the PSP will help us out a great deal," he said.

Though he declined to provide details, Tretton's statement pointed to similarity with the PS3's version, which allows downloadable game demos, videos, and other extras. The PSP can so far only use its Wi-Fi to play games online, receive updates, and transfer PS1 games bought through the PS3-based shop.

Sony hopes to release the store in time for this fall. [via Shacknews]
