Like many others who had purchased original PSP games
from the retail outlets, you will realize that as the games is
completed, buying new games seem to be getting expensive and
unaffordable. What else can I do if I want to continue to play new or
old fashioned games on my PSP console? I start search and looking for
website that offers free PSP download games.
Once I had
downloaded the PSP games onto my console, how to play PSP download
games was my next question. I'm not sure exactly how PSP works when I
download new PSP games onto the unit, but I sure have found some
answers while I was looking for it. Since I'm facing and struggling
with this problem on how to play PSP download games on my unit, lots of
other people must be also getting the same problem.
Hope that I
get this right for everyone to play PSP download games because I used
the same method here to play on my console. Before we get started, I'm
using a PSP unit with firmware of 1.5 and having a Sony PSP compatible
memory stick pro duo.
Since you are going to download the PSP
games, you must download the games for the correct version of firmware,
if not it will not work. Newer version of the firmware is available to
anyone from the PSP official website. Most homebrew PSP games works
with firmware 1.5 and below because the newer firmware upgrade is
trying to block people from using homebrew games. Make sure the games
you are downloading ends with PSP because only PSP files are compatible
with Sony PSP unit.
Once the PSP games are downloaded, connect the PSP to your computer
by using the USB cable that comes with the PSP console. Change your PSP
console into PSP mode by pressing the "Home" button. Next scroll left
to the "Setting" column and scroll down until "USB Connection". Press
"X" button to enter PSP into USB mode.
download the PSP games into your console, the games must be copied and
downloaded onto the correct folder in order for the games to work. And
the correct path is PSP > GAME in order for the any PSP games to
work correctly. If the "PSP" and "GAME" folder does not exist on your
PSP memory stick, you need to manually create the folder with folder
name in ALL CAPS.
you have finished downloading or transferring the games onto the PSP
memory stick, you can disconnect your PSP from the computer. From the
PSP console main menu, scroll over to the "GAME" column on your Sony
PSP and continue to scroll down on the memory stick. Press "X" and a
list of game files will be displayed. Scroll downward and you will be
able to see the games you have just installed.
"X" again to confirm your selection and play the PSP games. I had tried
to practice the steps above many times in my PSP and it worked all the
time. Hopefully it will also work for your console too.
