    You could probably just torrent them and then you could copy them over to your PSP's memory stick.

    He's referring to the free ones Sony's giving out to people who had PSN accounts before it went down.

    6.x PRO-B5 has PSN access.

    Pandora downgrade re-writes all flashes, so he'd lose his activation info, and he'd need to be able to reconnect to PSN on his PSP to re-activate it.

    you should be able to use your PS3 to get the 2 free games for the psp
    Some people do NOT have wifi
    and
    DO NOT use windows

    Considering the price discrepancies I think it's a bit more likely that somebody will have WiFi than a PS3. [​IMG]

    I just did this with the 6.39 PRO-B6 from my PSP. Since it's registers as 6.39, you'll be able to access PSN.

    OK I got to store but no "welcome back" banner. I followed guide from playstation site ([PlayStation Store] > [Account Management] > [Transaction Management] > [Services List] > [SCEA Promotion]) but there is no such thing as "SCEA Promotion" and pics only have PS3 screens! (PRO-B 6.20)

    You're probably going to need 6.39. I'm using 6.39 PRO-B6 and I can see in both the PSN Store and on the Services List.

    media go will work. i just used it to get them on my PSP which is running 6.20 PRO-B6.
    just use it to download the free games as you usually would, and use this version.txt to spoof your psp to 6.39.
    then media go will read your PSP as a 6.39 and won't give you any trouble copying the games to your PSP.

    i'm assuming you're on a 6.xx PRO firmware other than 6.39 PRO.
    paste this into a text file called "version.txt" and put it in ms0:/SEPLUGINS/
    Code:
    release:6.39:
    build:4966,0,3,1,0:builder@vsh-build6
    system:57253@release_639,0x06030910:
    vsh:p6608@release_639,v58306@release_639,20110126:
    target:1:WorldWide
    then go into your recovery menu and enable "use version.txt in seplugins" or whatever it says.
    now when you go into your system information, it'll say your firmware, nickname, model number, and "Fake: 6.39"
    this spoof fixes basically everything; media go, ps store, wifi multiplayer games, etc.

    I don't really see why you're bothering, if you're capable of downloading whatever game you fancy to play on your PSP for free, why bother getting these freebies?..is it to save on internet usage?

    Copy/pasting wasn't working for some reason but I downloaded it from here and now it works! Also noticed it was under "latest" bar. woops.
    That's some handy feature I wasn't aware of. Thanks Shabutie78 [​IMG]

    E: whoops wrong name. Also even if everyone could get these games for free anyways these are official so there won't be problems with updates and online playing in future.

    Hmm... odd. I'll just put some details first:
    1) PSP 2000 running 6.20 PRO-B6
    2) I used the version.txt hack.
    3)Running Media Go
    4) My PSP is not connected to the internet or logged into the PSN.

    And I'm getting no content under the 'Welcome Back' screen. Do I need to sign in on my PSP to link it with my account?
