PSP can play PlayStation 1 games

Sony's Portable PlayStation (PSP) can now play original PlayStation games after Sony gave PSP users an early Christmas present via an unheralded firmware update.

PSP users can now play PS1 games purchased on the PlayStation Store website. PSP users can also stream games from a PlayStation 1 disc, played on a PS3 via the Remote Play function. Both machines need a Wi-Fi connection.
