    I heard there was a way to play full-fledged PSP games on a PS3 running official firmware. Is this still possible, or has this since been patched? I'm kind of curious, because Dracula X Chronicles looks divine on PS3 judging from the images on Hack Informer.

    I forgot
    It was patched with 4.70 IIRC, so if your PS3 is on that firmware or higher then it's not possible.

    This is the first I've ever heard of this. I'm running the latest rebug and would enjoy playing PSP games on my PS3, how would I go about it please?

    Put PSP iso into PSPISO folder, launch via mmcm/webman

    I tried that and it wouldn't start, IIRC it said something needed to be installed?

    IIRC, you have to install Cobra PSP launcher (if it's not already installed)
