How To Play Downloaded Games On PSP

[ 0 ] January 2, 2016 |

Most people whom own a PSP believe that the only way to play PSP games is by purchasing them from a store. To the disbelief of many, it is possible to download games directly to a PSP. This is because a PSP is able to download content over Wi-Fi, USB, or through a PS3. These steps are assuming that one has purchased the games through the PlayStation store. Here is a guide to downloading games to your PSP:

How To Download Over Wi-Fi

The PSP provides a download list from the XMB menu. This is located by finding the XMB menu, and finding PSN, then Account Management, then Transaction Management, then Download List. After locating the download list, you will then choose the option for “Download List,” followed by the “X” button. The new game which has been downloaded to your system will then be located under “Games.”

How To Download Content From A Computer

Aside from Wi-Fi downloads, PSP content can also be downloaded to a computer. With computer downloads, the process is very similar to doing so through WiFi. The major difference with a USB connection is that you would download the content to your computer first, then choose settings and USB connection on the PSP. This would be followed with going to Store – Download List on the PSP itself. On the PSP itself, you would simply drag and drop the content to the device. You would then tap on the O button to take the device out of USB mode, and go to “Games” to view your new game download.

A PSP can even be connected to a PS3 for the purpose of downloading content. Once the PS3 game has been purchased, it can be copied over to the PSP. Under the PSN menu, followed by Account Management, followed by Transaction Management, followed by Download List. The download list will provide all of the games which you would want to download to your device. The PSP game can be found under the “Game” menu, and is copied over by pressing the “triangle” button, then copy and “X” from the menu button on the right side. You will then proceed to view your game under the “Games” menu.

What Types Of Content Can Be Downloaded?

Both games and movies can be downloaded to your PSP. This includes virtually all of the PlayStation content which can be purchased from the PlayStation store. You can also download TV Shows to your PSP, which is a convenient feature when you are traveling to a new location. This process of downloading content is made virtually effortless by the PlayStation store.

The PlayStation store also has plenty of free games available to download. These are listed under the “Free-to-Play” category, which offers plenty of fun and entertaining games such as “Run Sackboy Run” or “Desert Ashes.” Some of the more popular games will still cost money, but are available for download to the PSP in addition to the PS3/PS4.
