Sony working on PSP store

Many would suggest that Sony's main focus in gaming is its home consoles, the PS2 and PS3, whilst the PSP is just a side venture into another market, which it is not finding as successful when being crushed by Nintendo's DS every week. Sony has made attempts to prove this theory wrong by introducing a lighter and slimmer PSP model and the ability to download from the PSN store via PC. But the same many are probably demanding a Store that doesn't require a PC (or PS3).
But worry not as Sony is once again stepping up to bring the interest of the PSP to a whole new level by introducing an store similar to PSN exclusive through the PSP.
"Clearly that's something we're thinking about", says Eric Lempel, PlayStation Director of Nework Operations, "It's just a matter of priorities and some technology that we need to make it all work right and make sure the content is delivered securely, just to protect some of our [intellectual properties]".
He went on to confirm that Sony is looking into the possibility of bringing PS3 PlayStation Network games such as flOw and Everyday Shooter to the PSP.

They're taking notice of the PSP more and more with the increased sales. It's a good idea.

Maybe they can improve the browser while they're adding the PSP Store. I love how the DS uses the two screens. The bottom to get a full view of the page and the top to see what you're zooming in on. It would be nice if Sony joined up with Firefox or Opera to bring a REAL browser to the system.

the psp store is the right step in the right direction for sonys psp. I really like how easy it is to just download and install the games, game demos, themes, wallpapers, etc automatically to your psp using a small software from sony, the same way when you are downloading and installing some file from a website throught whichever browser.

I'm not sure where the author of this article is getting that Sony's entry into the hand held market has not been sucessful (capturing 30% of the market) or that it is some "adventure" Sony enbarked on?? True the PSP did not get off to a good start (kinda like the PS3) but with the new models, price reductions, and new IPs it's currently doing pretty well :).

I think he meant compared to the DS, which is absolutely flogging it (and everything else for that matter).
