PSP gets back to game basics

Sony is going back to gaming basics with the . Despite global sales of 15 million units, it’s falling to find support for the UMD movie disc format, and the Nintendo DS is proving far tougher competition than Sony suits might have anticipated.
So what’s the PSP gameplan? A free firmware update, which brings Macromedia Flash Version 6 compatibility to its web browser, is expected to open up online games applications, while cross-platform functionality with PS3 titles will play an integral part of the PlayStation Network Platform, which launches in November. In the US, the company will also offer original PlayStation games titles for download to either memory Stick Duo cards or third party hard drive devices.
Also due later this year is a USB EyeToy camera.
The future isn’t all fun and games though. The company is also planning video and voice-over-IP services which would effectively turn the handheld into a video-phone, and a GPS peripheral.
