Latest PSP firmware requires PS3, $11, and extra MS Duo

Sony released a new firmware update (version 3.0) for the PSP on Monday that included, among other features, the ability to download and play original PlayStation games like Tekken 2 and Resident Evil: Director’s Cut.


Since the announcement, PSP owners have been fuming over the fact that the games, when released, must first be downloaded to the hard drive tucked inside the PS3 (you know, the console that everyone has), then transferred to a Memory Stick Duo card for handheld playback.

Nothing’s changed since then, but today Sony at least announced pricing and file sizes of the upcoming games. And they’re not too bad. The game titles will range between $6 and $11 and require between 140MB and 550MB of free space.
