    So I ended up buying a PS3 a while ago when my brother said he'll be moving out with his PS3. Around the same time I thought "Why not get a PSP?" and started to check things out. Since the new Sony console is coming around by the end of the year with a quite reasonable price tag, is it smart to wait for the PS Vita or go Hack 'n Slash a PSP3000/PSP Go with CFW (or the likes)? I'd like to play old PSP games so does that end up with PSP3000/PSP Go? Which of the two?

    If this hasn't been answered yet (not enough PSV specs yet), I'll leave this open or a mod can do the necessary things if needed be.

    ps. The reason I'm asking is that if the PS Vita supports PSP games, I'd probably end up buying that since at the price of a PSP Go/PSP3000 + 16 Gb memory stick, I'll get about 5-10 PSP games off of PSN. [​IMG]

    hmm you will get a lot of opinions from this thread with almost the same concern you have

    http://gbatemp.net/t298966-is-it-worth-to-...-at-this-moment

    as for PSP 3000 or Go, to me it comes down whether you buy your games or pirate them.. if you buy them go for 3000 the price of UMD games is really attractive on best sellers and especially the second hand market while the Go has a build in 16 gb memory to download more and more.
    personally i have a 3000 i love good deals and physical copy of my games, the screen is a bit bigger and i like the design better.

    If you want to go on mass piracy than you may as well get a PSP 3K or Go. If you're going legit than get the Vita.

    Buying UMDs that are already on PSN is pointless at this point because if you buy the Vita, titles downloaded on PSN will be playable on it.

    So it doesn't matter whether I load the game on a PSP3000/PSP Go and then ended up with a PS Vita and loaded it on that, regardless of the prior consoles used? That's the main point that I have.

    Also another question: Will all PSP games be available on the PSN eventually? Well talking basically about KH: BBS, GoW, etc. more popular franchises (I could name a few more games, but going to sleep in a sec..).

    I have no idea why GoW isn't on PSN, it technically is Sony.

    KH:BBS is never coming to PSN, the AP they put in mostly fucked up them chances.

    Older games are coming, just last week FFT was released.

    I don't know if all PSP games will be up on PSN but I would say the good games will be. You can already get the Ys games, VC II, Lunar etc. And as it looks like Sony are taking digital distribution seriously, I'd say they'll put up the good shit up distribution

    Figures.. No wonder why everyone hates AP.. They even fuck up legal ways of obtaining Digital copies.. So the only way to get a copy of it is with UMD -> Game ISO / Just plain old Piracy? Meh go for new tech and older than old AP methods.


    -Qtis

    ps. Also WTF is wrong with Sony not releasing games worldwide on PSN? Doesn't Sony have the possibility of making a game available globally without bigger problems if the game is already translated? *cough* Valkyria Chronicles 2 EU? *cough*

    Also a new question in regards to the PSP and emulators, is the PSP GBAemu any good? Currently have a DSL + 3in1 and DSiXL + DSTwo options so compared to those [​IMG]

    ps. To mods: posted a new reply instead of editing so that someone actually might read this. Didn't want to make a new topic for it if that's ok [​IMG]

    I find GBA emulation to be excellent.

    i found each and every emulator for the PSP clsoe to perfect, SNES and GBA FULL SPEED, megadrive and neogeo full screen, everything is sexy and awesome!!

    except for the MAME and PC engine but again maybe its me trying crappy revisions with sound crackling, lag and glitches all over the place >.

    Emulation on the PSP is one of the best out there. At least on all consoles I've tried. [​IMG]

    Excellent! This sounds actually quite good, and if the seller in question accepts my offer, I'll have a PSP 3000 and a PSP Go (the Go less than 4 months old, barely used) in a few weeks [​IMG]

    ps. Second thing is that what's wrong with the devs/publishers? What do they lose when putting content available on PSN? Isn't it just pure income (while Sony may take their share, but doesn't that happen regardless of distro method?)?

    Sony charge a fee for not only having the game on the PSN, but also for the size of the game itself. Most publishers aren't willing to kowtow to Sony when the PSP is such a risky proposition and they lose most of the control of the games.

    I thought Sony was the best to publish games digitally?

    While Nintendo only sends you a check once you've hit a certain amount of sales, don't know what Microsoft do, Sony send money monthly (IIRC).

    Plus they can update games with more control unlike Xbox LIVE.

    I think it's just Europe, both God of War games are on the PSP store. Plus I hear you now and then reference a game not available on the store for you but I think it is for the US.

    Well all in all I just hope they make the interesting content available in Europe regardless. Btw is there a way to downgrade from the latest firmware to 6.39 (or possibly factory settings) if a PSP Go is updated to 6.40+?
