Sony confirms NGP will run PSP games

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Thu June 2, 2011

Titles from PSN will be supported

Amid Sony's NGP-related announcements, the company has confirmed that its upcoming handheld will be compatible with PSP titles. Backward compatibility will be limited to digital releases available in the PlayStation Network, though the hardware differences will require many games to be reconfigured for the NGP's input options.

The NGP will integrate a software emulator that is capable of upscaling and smoothing the original game for the higher-resolution screen. Users will be able to turn off the upscaling feature if they prefer the PSP's presentation.

SCE's Bend Studio has reportedly demonstrated the emulator using the PSP title Resistance: Retribution. The emulator adaptation utilizes one of the NGP's analog sticks to control the character view. [via Eurogamer]
