Retro Games destined for PSP?

March 4, 2009 by jmcdonou 

Short article over at MTV Multiplayer, with a quote from a Sony exec indicating that they are interested in making retro games, including ones for non-Sony platforms available over the PSN network for use on the PSP.  I’m trying to think of a way to do this in a manageable fashion from Sony’s perspective that does not employ virtualization, and I’m coming up empty.  A question for our project is whether freelance efforts to develop emulators might begin to fade if the commercial players start providing their own emulators for earlier platforms.  It will also be interesting to see whether the game  companies care to share their emulator code.
