Premier publisher of interactive entertainment software, D3Publisher (D3P), will bring its classic PSP (PlayStationPortable) titles to gamers for download via the PLAYSTATIONStore across EMEA beginning this September. PSP owners will no longer need a UMD to play critically-acclaimed PSP titles such as the original Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, 2007s multiple award-winning cult hit and Dead Head Fred, a head-swapping, third person-action game and more.

D3Publisher is always looking to make fun and original gaming experiences easily accessible to everyone, said Yoji Takenaka, president and chief executive officer, North America and Europe, D3P. We believe that making these classic PSP titles available via digital distribution gives the games a new opportunity for discovery and the gamers a second chance at hours of enjoyment.
