PSP To Be Online At Launch
Sony's PSP sports titles will be offering online content out of the gate. Details inside...
Sony has revealed that their internally developed sports titles for the upcoming PSP will feature online functionality. Gretzky NHL, NBA and MLB, all being developed by Sony's 989 Sports label, will feature online play modes and are all due out at launch.
While the Sony PSP has enjoyed a successful launch in Japan, none of the Japanese titles feature online play, but some, including Ridge Racers and Darkstalkers Chronicle do take advantage of the units local area network or WI-FI functionality. The move shows that online play is a priority in America and hopefully other developers will step up and take advantage of the PSPs full capabilities as Sony prepares to launch the revolutionary handheld device on March 24, 2005.
