Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Kaz Hirai has said the firm is currently in negotiations with various developers to bring digital versions of already released PSP games to the new NGP system.

Speaking in a round table interview with Watch Impress, Hirai said owners of a current PSP will be able to redownload their titles onto NGP if still within the download number limits outlined by PSN.

As well as digital downloads, Hirai said packaged games for the system will be released via custom memory card format with a rewritable space so users can save and download data, similar to ones used with DS.

General memory cards will also be supported, according to a Sony representative, and in its current form, NGP will not support video output.

NGP was announced earlier this week, and currently there isn’t a confirmed price or release date – more was promised at E3 though.
