SCEA marketing boss John Koller has told Wired that downladable titles for PSP are one of the firm’s “big pushes” for this year.

“One of our big pushes this year is to be sure that the right kind of content and the right kind of games in particular are placed on the PlayStation Network for download on the PSP,” he said, speaking at GDC.

“We’ve been engaged in a wide range of conversations with publishers over the last year, year and a half about software and games overall on the PSP. One significant topic that hasn’t necessarily been covered a lot is inclusion of digital copies of the games that they’re launching on UMDs.”

Koller, by way of giving a timeframe for downloads to hit PSP en bloc, pointed to late 2009.

“In the back half of this year, we should see a good rise in the amount of content that comes to PSN for the PSP,” he added.
