- Anyone own a PSP?
Thinking of buying one to take away on my travels. Is there a ROM cart similar to the Gameboy DS to play er… backed up” games ?
Anyone own a PSP? Saw a guy playing snooker on one on the train yesterday and it looked pretty good – reminded me of Jimmy White’s on the Amiga.
Any nuggets of info would be nice – pros/cons, tweaks or hacks etc.Posted 10 years agowoodywoodbineSubscriber
Got one, not hacked but its a great bit of kit still. UMDs are dead cheap these days and if you get a decent size memory card you can store music, pics etc on it as well as access the internet through wireless (albeit very slowly).
Seconded recommendation for Loco Roco and Patapon too!Posted 10 years ago
As above – you can use game “backups” stored on a Sony Memory Stick but subsequent firmware updates have made it more and more difficult to use them.
iirc (just sold mine) anything with firmware higher than 3.0 is nigh on impossible to hack. 2.71SE is the one to have but you need some knowledge of computers/gadgets to get things set up properly (lots on the web though – google psp 2.71se). Oh, and latest games need the latest firmware, making sticking with 2.71 more difficult 🙂
Good fun and very addictive little console. Especially Loco Roco – great gamePosted 10 years agogravity-slaveMember
I’ve had loads of fun from my PSP. Great screen, great sound, easy to use. The only ‘cons’ I found is the UMD, as you say, playing off a stick would be much easier for travel. Homebrew firmware available that might do it. Stock battery life OK but the original PSP has a long life battery option.
LocoRoco is addictive and the music will drive you potty, in a good way. When you start trying to sing it, you know it’s time for a break.
Wipeout Pure is the best ‘driving’ game I’ve played on it, absolutely awesome conversion.
I might sell mine with games and accessories. Drop me a mail if you are interested in photos and details!Posted 10 years ago
