Seven first-party downloadable PSP titles coming 2008

Sony Computer Entertainment America is currently developing seven original titles for the PSP, due out next year via download through the PlayStation Store.

According to sources speaking to, the first-party septet encompass three action games, two music-based games, one shooter and one racer (where does Calling All Cars fit into that list?). They will be approximately one-half to one-third the size of current UMD disks and are intended to provide two to ten hours of gameplay.

Sony is also reportedly courting developers to provide more original titles to the network. No other details are currently available. The PlayStation Store, currently only accessible via the PS3, will be available through the PC and PSP next year.
