SCEA’s John Koller has told MTV that PSP will see non-PSone retro games coming to PSP in the future.

“In general there’s a lot of discussion about [publishers'] back catalogs that will finally find its way to PlayStation Network in the back half of this year,” said the exec.

“PSOne is included, but everything is on the table… We look for some of those big hits from all of the past games in their history and look for ways we can bring them over. It’s not always easy. There’s obviously technical areas that need to be bridged.

“But when those are solved, consumers will see a wide variety of retro games and brand new games coming to PSN.”

Ikari Warriors, please John. Full thing through the link.

    Y’see, tie these together on the same PSN nick and have them working on the PS3 aswell (PSP games being able to run on the PS3 would also be excellent, and an incentive for people like me to buy them on PSN), and Sony could have themselves an excellent combination.

    But I get the feeling they’ll still fall far short of what I’d like to see.
