How do you make the most of your PSP? Play games, of course! What makes it even more exciting is there are A LOT of games for you to choose from. The safest mode will be to shop in its official store, but if you’re willing to take a risk, you can add hundreds of games sold by PSP developers and enthusiasts.
Today, we’re not going to talk about specific titles. They’re easier to find, and mentioning them will definitely take us a couple of days. Instead, we’ll highlight some of the niches or categories these games fall:
PlayStation Minis are mainly for PSPs, but you may be able to come across titles that work seamlessly with both Vita and PS3. These include Actual Crimes: Jack the Ripper, Aqua Attack, and Duael Invaders. These games are only downloadables.
Minis are preferred by some because they are very easier to play and they don’t have a very large file size. In the process, the PSP owner can hold a lot of Minis.
As their name suggests, they are just for showcase. You can download the demo games to determine if this is the game you really want to save in your PSP. Demo games are virtually cost-less, so you can download as many of them as you like. Moreover, there’s no need to keep track of their exact duration, since they become non-functioning once the expiry date arrives. Just like other kinds of demos, the demo games for PSP are very limited, but the functions are enough to give you a good idea about them.
Yup, you can download free PSP games today. However, before you get all too excited, know that they are not sold by PlayStation Network (and never will they take that route, we presume). These are the games developed by PSP enthusiasts. Normally, for you to download free games, you have to tweak the device’s firmware, which can be dangerous if you’re not careful. Moreover, some “free games” are actually viruses or malware, which can damage ultimately kill your PSP.
These are the kinds of games that are sold in offline stores. No, we’re not talking about downloadables that are packed in CDs. Those are illegal. These are official PlayStation games. However, they are in CD form, and they come with manuals and other components you may need to successfully install the game. The downside of this is you have to get a new one once the game is already updated.
These are 3D games, which means images have more depth and dynamics. For you to be able to play the game, you need to have more than just a PSP. You also require some glasses that will allow you to “see” these images in their 3D form. Needless to say, there’s a good chance you’re going to have a lot of fun since it’s something new.
As the name implies, these are games that have been developed in Japan yet sold in PlayStation Stores. Japan is one of the biggest leaders in electronics, and they’re highly creative especially when it comes to game designs. It doesn’t come as a surprise if the West such as the United States will take interest in some of them.
The only potential issue with these Japanese games is you may not completely understand them since they don’t come with any English bundles (subtitles or voiceovers).
These are simply a collection of some of the best PSP games ever sold. They have been downloaded millions of times over the years. They may also refer to games that have been developed extremely well, with hard-core graphics, gameplay, and story. If you want to invest on good games, you may want to start with them.
There are two of these: PS1 and PS2. They are classic games, some of the first games that have been created for the PSP. These may refer to A Bug’s Life, Baroque, Bomberman Land, and The Emperor’s New Groove, which was released again on March 2011. PS2 Classics, on the other hand, are very similar to PS1 Classics—they’re also old school—but they are designed for PS3.
