NeoGeo titles coming to PSN Dec. 21
SNK Playmore announces "Neo Geo Station" for Sony's virtual storefront hitting later this month; 10 updated PS3 and PSP titles available at launch for $8.99 and $6.99, respectively.
PlayStation 3 owners with an Internet-connected console can already download PlayStation One classics, but for those looking even deeper into the past, the PlayStation Network will soon offer NeoGeo titles.
Publisher SNK Playmore today announced plans for a "Neo Geo Station" on the PlayStation Network. The download hub will go live on December 21 with 10 classic NeoGeo titles. The games will be offered for both the PlayStation 3 and PSP priced at $8.99 and $6.99, respectively.
Additionally, the NeoGeo titles are not plain and simple ports of their original form. SNK has added contemporary features to each title including online versus and cooperative play for the PS3 (ad hoc support for PSP titles), as well as a "variety" of unspecified improvements.
All 10 titles arriving on the PlayStation Network are listed below. All titles will be available for the PS3 on December 21, with two (denoted with *) also being available for the PSP. The other eight titles will arrive for PSP sometime in January.
