All future PSP titles will be downloadable via PS Store

Sony’s PSP continues its growth as the system which got off to a rocky start early on and experienced a resurgence as of late is upping the ante once again — the PSP will be getting the ability to download all upcoming games from the PlayStation Store in the very near future. The service will be available in Japan starting October 15 and will be launched with Destroy All Heroes 2 as the first available downloadable title. No release dates of the service for other regions have been announced.

All titles will still be available for hard copy purchase on UMD, so this doesn’t signal the death of UMD quite yet, but it does take a step towards the digital era.
