Saw this on EvilAvatar:
http://psp.advancedmn.com/article.php?artid=3147

7000??  I wouldn't have guessed that the entire PSOne library was even 2000 titles, let along 7000!

Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy Tactics and a bunch of other ports coming could be great.

Will the games look good, comparable to the DS?

YES, AWESOME.

I've been holding out on a playthrough of the PSOne FF's to play them on the PSP.

Somebody must've misplaced a zero or something. There's most definitely not 7000 PS1 games out there.

As for the PSP's emulation to the PS1, I think it'll look pretty good. It won't be widescreen (or stretched if it is), but it'll work.

The controls will suck though. Especially those released towards the end of the PS1's lifespan, where games used both dual-analog sticks (which the PSP obviously doesn't have).

If this actually happens, I will re-buy a PSP with no hesitation.  I think they're current crop of games are crap, but being able to play FF Tactics or Castlevania on a road trip would be awesome.  I am curious what the price point will be for the ports, though.

I'd love to potentially play Tactics again.  I never liked the GBA version with the 10 year olds battling it out.

Castlevania on the other hand seems to be much better now on the GBA/DS, with the newer systems in place.  Was the PSOne better then the newer stuff on the DS?

I never made it all the way through Vagrant Story, so its a game I'd love another shot.  Some other solid PSOne titles out there as well.

They may be using old arcade compilation games to inflate the numbers, but that still seems way too high.

The PSOne Castlevania is pretty much the exact same game as the DS version.

I still prefer the PSOne one though. Better music for starters, and the whole 'second castle' thing still rocks today.

So there was the soul collection aspect, as well as upgrading your weapons, or was it pretty standard action?  Part of what I like about the DS Castlevania is the soul abilities you can collect and upgrade with.

There were a dozen (?) or so critters you could get that would float behind you and do occasional damage or other things. And they'd level up over time, gaining additional power.

And there were a ton of weapons/armor/accessories for you to buy/find lying around/grab off of monsters.

The gameplay, level design, and music of Symphony of the Night continues to hold up immensely well to this day.  The only person I know of who never "got it" and has thus missed out on this gem is Fyedaddy.  Freak.  :twisted:

Wasn't this originally the entire point of making the PSP?

The problem is that most PS1 games actually look like ass these days.

As with all things Sony these days, I must ask: How much is this going to cost me?  (Sorry, the article won't load at the moment here.)

Yeah, but they look much better on the small screen.

Well they had bad loading times from the disc (CDROM) but the Playstation games you'll be playing on your PSP will most likely be downloaded in some form to your memory stick.  That should nuke any loading time concerns.

It's the PSP though, games wouldn't feel right without that trademarked Sony load time smile.
