Downloading Sony PlayStation Portable Games

Apr 22, 2008
The PlayStation Portable system is compact and therefore easy to carry around. It offers many game choices in a variety of genres and has capabilities to download music, television shows and movies. You can download new files to your PSP any time of the day or night, when it is convenient for you. Learn how to know what files you can download with your current system and where to find an unlimited number of PSP files so you never run out of fun things to do.

Firmware Information

Firmware is like the operating system of the PSP. It manages operation and stores files. It also controls the functions that the PSP is capable of performing. To find out what firmware version you have on your PSP system, go to the main menu and select settings. From there you can see what version you have. This information is useful for letting you know what type of games, movies and music you can use on your system. You can also upgrade your system to a newer
version as they become available.

Emulator Information

Emulators are devices that allow you to download older versions of games onto your system. They are easy to find on the Internet these days. If you use
emulators just for personal use, and not for making a profit, there should be no problems using them. Amateurs are also playing around with their programming skills, creating their own versions of games. With an emulator, you can download their games for free. Most of these games are pretty simple in their gaming actions and compare to games like Space Invaders or Pong.

Download Sites for More Choices

You have to be careful when downloading PSP games, music or TV shows from the Internet to your system. Many legitimate download sites offer memberships so you receive notices of new games through e-mail. However, plenty of illegal sites are selling bootlegged copies that could get you in trouble for violating copyright laws. You should be leery of sites that offer "free" downloads, no matter how professional the site looks. You should be able to ask the site owner questions about how they can offer these downloads for free. If you get no answer, move on.

You can generally spot a legitimate download site by looking for these three features:

1. The site generally offers a wide variety of games, music and TV options, not just a few.

2. The site provides support and gives you a telephone number and physical address to contact them with problems and/or questions.

3. The site provides quick download speeds. They pay for enough bandwidth to keep up with download demands.

PSP has made it so easy for people to enjoy many forms of entertainment. Knowing your system is important to finding all the great things that you can download, most of the time with instant downloads. The important thing is to know how to keep yourself safe with the places you choose to download from, so your gaming fun can be unlimited.
