    Who had this happen to them,
    My laptop decided to shit itself and I lost all my PSP games about 50GB and I just did a back up to DVD and borrowed them out to what I thought was a trust worthy person so when I asked for them back he disappeared he lives in another state and doesn't reply to my emails
    now it is going to take me 4 months to try and get them again I can only use 12GB down load off the internet a month [​IMG] [​IMG]
    This sucks

    Losing you're shit sucks. my hdd shit out on me the other day and i lost all my complete rom sets from all the cartridge systems. Luckily i don't have any bandwith limitations and i probably down load 5x your monthly limit daily. my advise to you if your looking to redownload your collection is to look for compressed files and buy an external hdd to back up your files. good luck recovering your collection.

    No, a collector actually buys games to, collect them, you're just someone who wants to have everything. There's a MASSIVE DIFFERENCE.

    Besides many UMD's are very cheap and it'd make far more sense to spend a couple of AUD on GTA LCS than download 1Gb of data. BUY SOME GAMES!

    Good for you. That doesn't make you a PSP collector.

    Your lack of history on the PSP board betrays your comments.

    Plus the issue here is someone calling themselves a game collector but not actually owning any games.

    What's this got to do with the price of cheese? I have 4 psps and I don't see why me not posting on the psp section much has anything to do with this? I will make sure I post everyday from now, sorry!

    Firstly because a game collector is clearly not a collector of game images. The distinction is implicit...if someone gave you a present of the Complete Megadrive library as a collection of Cartridges or ROMs which would classify as a game collection?

    Secondly, this is RedBaron. If it was anyone else this would be a non-point but in this instance unless you've followed his history then you're missing some details here.

    I agree with buying games, but as far fas buying a umd; I disagree. I can download a 2 gb game in around 15 min from psn, way faster than going to the store and getting home.

    To the OP, why don't you backup your games?
    I keep a copy on an external hd and on a secondary drive.

    Whoopee for you....internet provision around the world is not as fantastic as yours. There are bandwidth and speed restrictions which are common around the world. Just because the US has good internet provision doesn't mean that everywhere else in the world does....which is part of the reason the PSP Go was a bad idea.
