    I just got a vita and I heard psp games look way better on the vita. Do they look grainy at all since it is a higher res screen? I have a psp and I was wondering if it would be worth it to rebuy ghost of Sparta, peacewalker, Valkyrie Chronicles, pes3 and monster hunter. Is it that much better when I already have the games?

    Will my monster hunter game save transfer to my vita? It is a hacked psp and I think the region for my Monster hunter was Europe.

    i can't answer for the saves but I can testify for the screen quality. It's really gorgeous. You won't regret it. It's neither grainy or less sharp, the contrary actually!

    There is a method for transferring saves across, but I've yet to get it to work. It does involve the content manager.

    As far as I can tell though, if your save is in a different region to your console, it will definitely not work.

    How to transfer saves from PSP to Vita.

    1. Start a psp game on your vita and create a save file (doesn't matter what you just need a save)

    2. Connect it to PC and open content manager

    3. Transfer the save to the PC

    4. Find out where that save was transferred to (you can also open content manager options on yor PV by clicking it in the taskbar down at the bottom right and it will have a folder listed). The folder is usually:

    C:/> users > username > documents > PSVITA > PSAVEDATA > (a folder that just has numbers and letters) > in here is where you should find the psp saves

    5. Plug your PSP into your PC and find your save files ( folder is in PSP > SAVEDATA)

    6. Transfer the saves you want (or all of them) to the folder on PC that we found where the vita backs the psp saves to (the letter/number folder in PSAVEDATA)

    7. Open content manager on vita and choose PC -> PSVITA

    8. Choose applications > psp saves and check mark all the ones you want on your vita

    Congratulations! You can now get all your psp saves on your vita

    thanks but you forgot the most important part. My monster hunter save file is European and my game is USA. How do I convert the save file? And yes psp games look amazing on the vita.

    You will need to obtain a US copy of the game and the savegame deemer plugin to convert your save data to the US version.

    So the missing step was the need for a pre-existing save file? No wonder...

    Basically, install savegame deemer and the US iso. Load the foreign version and then save immediately after saving which will create 3 .bin files in SAVEPLAIN\gameid. Play the US version and create a new save for the game. Copy both SDDATA.BIN and SDINFO.BIN files from the foreign save to the US save (overwriting those two files in the directory for the US decrypted save data). Finally, load the US version of the game and then immediately save again after loading the save (which will write an encrypted version of the save).
