PSP Store is finally up

After an entire years delay, Sony has finally released their PSP Store. HERE's the link, just choose which country you're from, set up an account and you can download/buy some content.

The US Store comes with the PS1 games from the PS3 Store, Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow and SOCOM: Tactical Strike demos, a few official themes, a brand new multiplayer-online downloadable game, Syphon Filter: Combat Ops (which I'm guessing is the online mode from Logan's Shadow) AND a downloadable version of Wipeout Pure.

The Euro Store... Doesn't have much new content... At all... There's the PS1 games from the PS3 Store, some old demos and that's it. Hopefully Sony will add new content weekly, much like they do with the PS3 Store.

Here's the content available on each store:

Gangs of London

    This is quite something. I'll check it out and get some good PS1 JRPGs/SRPGs I missed.

    Not only that, but it has to be hooked up to a Sony HDTV.

    There appears to be a PC downloader that lets you take the stuff from PC to PSP.

    Are these games any cheaper than the ones on the PS3?

    I'm assuming that if I buy games now, and then end up getting a PS3 later, I'm not going to be able to tranfer them over, right?

    Does anyone know when Metal Gear Solid is being released for this? Or if there are even any plans for it?

    $6-$10 for old PS1 games on my PSP? Sounds good to me. No real must haves at the moment (although I would like to replay Jumping Flash), but I'm looking forward to having portable copies of the PS1 greats like RE2 & the various RPGs.

    -The PSP has a USB input, you can plug it into a PC and it will act like an external USB drive, making file transfers dead simple.

    -I can't get that link to work, it's telling me I should be viewing it from a PC. (Which of course I am)

    You can freely transfer between the two. Heck I have Castlevania loaded on my PS3 and PSP

    I think the problem they have right now is fact that games like Metal Gear, Final Fantasy, and Resident Evil 2 have two discs or more so they have to figure out how they will handle disc swapping or how hard will it be to rework the game to read 2-4 discs of data off one file.

    Origins is excellent, by the way. But I agree with you.

    Sadly, Crash and the original Syphon Filter are the only two games that appeal to me on that list. Twisted Metal 2, maybe, but I never really could get far in Head-On, so I think I'll pass on that.

    I'll probably get Crash when I get paid next.

    I'm a wipeout slut, so I'll probably pick up the original Wipeout along with Crash. I own Syphon Filter myself so I'm passing on that. Hopefully they expand the store with due speed.

    The PS Store account you create can be used with the PS3 and PSP Stores, so yeah, you'll just have to re-download it to your PS3. The same goes the other way, you can even download PSP demos (and games I suppose) onto your PS3 to store them and then transfer them to your PSP whenever you want to play them.

    Not only that but the account you create at the PSP Store appears to be exactly the same as the PSN accounts you create, so if you want to book a name for your PSN account, you can just create a PSP Store account. For example, if you wanted to use the name Evander when you eventually buy a PS3, you just create an account with that name on the PSP Store and then when you get a PS3, you'll be able to log into that account and use it.

    Anyway, here are the games available on each store (I'll add them to the OP as well):

    US Store:
    2Xtreme
    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    Coolboarders
    Crash Bandicoot
    Destruction Derby
    Hot Shots Golf 2
    Jet Moto
    Jumping Flash
    MediEvil
    Rally Cross
    Spyro the Dragon
    Syphon Filter
    Tekken 2
    Twisted Metal 2
    Wipeout

    Euro/Aus/NZ Stores:
    Cool Boarders
    Crash Bandicoot
    Crash Team Racing
    Everybody's Golf 2
    Jumping Flash
    MediEvil
    Syphon Filter
    Syphon Filter 3
    Wipeout

    I won't bother listing the Japanese PS1 games (because there's a lot) but they've got some pretty awesome games on it, including Resident Evil: Director's Cut, Dino Crisis, Alundra 2 and a bunch more.

    Hopefully now that they've got the PSP Store online, they'll release pretty regular updates and include more third party games.

    Castlevania: SotN would be sweet to have portable, but alas I played and beat the 360 one a few times, and the original one about a dozen times.

    Twisted Metal 2, but not in Europe? That's just cruel.

    And, on that note, can Europeans access US content, or are there street/billing address things that need to match up?

    (I can't check from this computer.)
