Up to 7,000 PSOne-to-PSP titles by 2007, reports UK PSP Magazine

PlayStation emulation (PSP)
"Riiiiiidge Raaaaacer!"
Kaz Hirai's famous declaration at Sony's E3 media breifing might not have garnered much applause, but, according to UK PSP Magazine, there are plenty of other emulated PlayStation titles (for the PSP) that will. These five AAA titles should be available when the emulation service launches:
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Final Fantasy VIII
  • Silent Hill
  • Tomb Raider
In addition, UK PSP Magazine reports that up to 7,000 PlayStation titles will be available for download by the end of 2007. Say what?! 7,000! Yes folks, it's possible -- Wikipedia: "As of March 2005, there were 7,743 software titles available (this figure counts games released in multiple regions as separate titles)."

Forget PSOne, the PSP has officially become the first, truly portable PlayStation. We knew the thing would find its calling sooner or later...
