Xperia Play Won't Play PSP Games You've Downloaded

If you thought you might pick up an Xperia Play next month, transfer any digital games you’ve downloaded onto your new new phone and ditch your PSP, you’ll have to change your plans.

GameSpot UK quotes a Sony Ericsson executive who says PlayStation Network games aren’t compatible with the “PlayStation Phone.”

Says the exec:

“[Xperia Play owners] will have to repurchase the games, so it’s not totally integrated. I think the exciting thing is that there are games which people are very, very aware of.”

If you had a PSP and own a bunch of downloaded content, is this a dealbreaker for you?
