There goes the last major excuse mant people had for not picking up (by far) the best portable gaming device on the market. These things can be had for less than $100 in NA now and under £150 in the UK with 10 (mostly top tier) games. The "Essentials" range means there's plenty of good content on PSN that's really cheap now as well.

So tell me, if I buy a PSP Go and KH BbS, how do I play it on the Go?

If I own the UMDs already, what is the legality of downloading the ISOs?

I just don't know how I can rip them.

I would like a PSP GO. It's a sexy console. But I want to buy UMD's to have the physical media.

I'll admit that I'm tempted to pick one up. I wonder if any of those $150 deals are still on.

I'd need to break out my old 2000 to start ripping games again since I decided my 3000 would be homebrew free.

You'd need to install CFW on your UMD based PSP, put the UMD of BbS, rip it, then install the sort of CFW on the Go, and put the rip of your UMD on the Go's hard-drive. But that's only if you're classy.

The analog nub on my PSP-2000 is wearing out, so I'm really tempted to pick up a PSP Go now. I buy just about all my PSP games through PSN anyway.
Just a bit worried about how it feels, is it comfortable to actually use for longer periods of time?

Wait so I will have to buy a normal PSP as well as a PSP Go?! Why not just play the game on the normal PSP then?!

If you have a PSP with custom firmware, it's incredibly simple to rip games. It just takes a few minutes to do it.

Don't know. I haven't picked one up yet. I believe some people in the custom firmware thread said it's below 6.20. It's 5.something.

You need a regular PSP with CFW to rip the game from. I guess you can DL it if you own the game...but Im not sure the legality from that.

Quite tedious :x

I have a Go and bought Crisis Core and Birth By Sleep UMD's (forever owned) and my nephew recently bought a PSP3000.

Would be so awesome if I can finally play my UMD games on the PSPGo (Fuck you Square Enix!) :lol

Sorry that was pretty incoherent. The they's refer to squenix and sony respectively. But squenix has a stake in making piracy unpalatable on the system, and I'm sure sony has some degree of leverage over them that if there was any sort of effort, games like KH and FFT would be on psn easily. As far as I understand, the downloadable psn titles are essentially an ISO of the UMD. If that is the case, I just can not understand why 100% of the psp's titles aren't on psn.

It's a grey area, but like someone suggested, you could buy the UMD and torrent the ISO. Not exactly practical but a workaround service for something Sony won't provide...

It's not a grey area legally at all. Morally sure. The moment you launch a torrent of a copyrighted work, you are not just downloading something, you are also uploading it.

It's more convoluted. You need a CFW PSP with the RemoteJoy plugin. Then you need to plug your PSP into the computer via USB. Then you need to plug your DS3 into the computer via USB (Bluetooth drivers don't exist). The drivers suck too.

Then you can play your PSP with your DS3. But you need a computer with you.

What they needed to do was do a one-time digital redemption code to be included with a PSP UMD sale? I understand the fear they had would be people would give the redemption codes to their friends or sell them while just using the UMD... or the opposite way.

Except you need to run an old firmware on the Go, it cuts you off PSN (the main selling point of the Go)'s catalog unless you use MediaGo, and isn't officially supported.

Oh, yeah, and some of us run PSP-1/2/3000's that can run the game... without modification... on our UMD drive!

I'll wait until the PSPGo is being firesaled at $50 before I jump on one. No further.

For those who are really interested in getting the best possible result in using a controller + TV/monitor to play PSP games, CFW knocks the PSP Go out of the park. You have so many more options in terms of video output and controller settings, etc, it's not even close.

What's the problem with using Media Go? Its the best and simplest way to manage and buy PSP content. Downloading PSN content through the GO itself is an exercise in frustration.

Regardless, with kernal access that restriction will be gone in no time, if it isn't already.
