50°
347w ago - We caught up with John Koller, Senior Product Manager for the PSP at Sony's CES booth this week, to get a quick update on the company's portable plans.

When asked about the success of the recently launched PC version of the PlayStation Store that allows those without a PlayStation 3 to download games, trailers and more to their PSPs, Koller told us that while it was a bit too early for accurate numbers, the company is expecting big things from the service.

"We have an opportunity to bring bite-size experiences to the system, ten minute, pick up and play content that can be downloaded from the store," Koller told us, part of an effort to expand the PSP's demographic.

In addition to those short-session downloadable games, plans for more legacy PSP titles are planned. Koller said the company will be re-releasing older PlayStation Portable titles as downloads, ones that "retailers aren't interested in carrying at this stage, games that we hear a lot of demand from PSP owners–titles like Wipeout, Twisted Metal–gamers who say 'I want to play this' but can't find it at retail anymore."

Speaking of retail, Koller confirmed that SCEA will be publishing more UMD movies and at a reduced price point. "We definitely understand that releasing a '70s era romantic comedy at $29.99...

347w ago - Eric Lempel of Sony has recently been discussing the progress of the Playstation Network. Lempel notes that while the team is happy with what they have achieved during their first year, they are by no means going to stop merely with what we see today.

He remarks that the great thing about the PSN is they have the capability to alter and upgrade the service to meet the demands of users and concludes that 2008 will be a big year in general for the network.

To quote: "While we are happy with what we've accomplished during our first year, we're by no means going to stop with what you see today. We have a long-term strategy for the service and there are still a good amount of features we haven't delivered. The great thing about the PlayStation Network is that we have the ability to make changes and upgrade the service to meet the demands of our users.

"I recognize that there are a few features that PS3 users have asked for that we haven't delivered yet... We have a lot of features in different stages of development that I think our users will be very excited about.

"I know that an achievement system is very important to our consumers. With Home, and in addition to Home, we have some very exciting programs planned to recognize our consumers gaming skills and loyalty...
