Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, you may have noticed the number of stories slowing down here. Time moves on, but I'll always keep posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age.
Since I don't have the time or content for a Patreon or YT channel, please consider clicking an ad to help reach my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Are PS2 Games Coming to PSP?

That's an odd thought in itself, but there are some rumors doing the rounds that this could be happening. To be honest, I think this is something for either NGP, or Xperia Play (using PlayStation Suite).

If Sony had given the PSP enough power to run PS2 games, it would have been selling them on the store years ago, to help prop up dwindling PSP sales in the west, and to generate heaps of revenue from the massive PS2 back catalog.

Even if Sony had some sort of cloud-based OnLive solution, the PSP takes 1/3 of its power to run the network connection, so I doubt there would be enough to manage the game side. Looking at the hardware, there just isn't the power for the little PSP to do the job.

Finally, I read translations of interviews with the Japanese Sony guys and most statements can be easily misconstrued, so this is one rumor going straight in the bin.
