334w ago - This fall should prove to be an exciting time for all PSP owners. Sony Computer Entertainment Japan today announced that the long-awaited direct PSP store will launch later this year via a firmware update.

Additionally, Sony dropped word that owners of a PlayStation 3 will be able to use their console to enable online play in select ad-hoc only PSP titles, such as Monster Hunter 2nd G.

Although we can't say for certain, expect the aforementioned services to hit all three major territories – North America, Europe and Japan – at the same time, considering that firmware updates have always been released on a worldwide basis in the past.
