    I was looking on the PlayStation store just now and I can't seem to find a PSP demo even when I am selecting a game the store says is supposed to have a demo. Anybody else having this issue?

    They show up fine for me on the web store: http://prntscr.com/dq3xkk

    Couldn't say actually on the Vita, since no PSN spoofing for 3.60.

    Just search "Demo" and then choose PSP on the side bar. All demos will just have Demo in their name, at least for PSP stuff.

    Ah, I see. I was doing it another way by clicking 'Demo Available'. Now I see them all... thank you!

    Not entirely sure what you're talking about, because A) PSN spoofing broke ages ago and you can't use the "Download to Vita" option anymore and B) I have no idea what you mean by "blacklisted" via CMA since CMA has nothing to do with the PS store directly, it's only used to backup games from your Vita to your PC.

    I mean transferring to the vita. transferring them to the computer makes no sense as their encrypted.

    Still have no idea what you're talking about, because you can't transfer official PSP or Vita games downloaded on your PC to your Vita at all.

    u can with ur ps3. a lot of demos have been blacklisted. they won't show up in cma. I'm assuming this is for adrenaline. the smallest game available is about 4MBs, but u have to go into IDA and install it with package manager. I've never done it personally.

    the reason u need package manager is that the game isn't installable on the vita. u have to use ur psp or ps3 to grab the license.

    I noticed the blacklisting because a PSP demo I downloaded I was unable to transfer from by PS3 using CMA because it did not show up as available for transfer. But I was able to transfer another PSP demo from my PS3 last night. Forgive my ignorance but what is IDA? I would love to know an alternative method to using CMA.

    I'm in the same situation, all my downloaded demos don't show up in CMA. Would you mind telling me which demo you used?

    Assuming you're using a German PSN, most likely your only option is Ape Quest.

    Actually i think something's wrong with my PS3. I'm using a Slim with 4.81 Rebug CFW installed. Whenever I download a demo, it does not show on the XMB game list. So I think the demo might not be correctly installed. Do you know why?

    Yes I found the demo there, but there's no "Install" or "Play" option. Is this normal?

    some psp demos can't be installed on the ps3. they're meant to be transferred to the psp.

    don't you just leave it sit on the ps3 and read the file from your vita's content manager psp section when connected?
