Its funny, my DS or GBA will hold its charge for months without play which is great. If it cant hold its battery life I'd rather use batteries. I've always got plenty at home and at least if i want to play something that is dead i can can chuck a couple of AA/AAA's in it and be on my way. Sony dont like their consoles being left alone. Every time i leave the PS3 for a while i have mammoth updates to do for both the system itself and for the games!

Really like the look of this.
If you can get it cheap then it might be an idea to just get it because I have a feeling it might be harder to track down in the future since it's the last PSP game of note in the EU so far (aside from a few EA things that inevitably slip out) and I can't imagine it was distributed too widely.

I got mine for £15 from Play.com. Haven't played it yet but it's a port of a PS2/360 game that came out in Japan ages ago so I imagine there's already plenty of opinion available outside of the PSP version.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

The PSP actually has some excellent driving games - OutRun 2006, both Burnouts, Gran Turismo, Motorstorm, both Wipeouts - all spring to mind.

In fact, it has some great all round sports games too - NHL 2007 is brilliant, Everybody's Tennis, Virtua Tennis.

I've got about 70 PSP games and OutRun and NHL are my top two.

Ive littlerly just had to do this lol,

Also my psp is unlocked so i can play emulators but how do i update it so i can play new games but not loss the modded firmware.
If you get the latest CFW (6.60 Pro I think) then they'll just load the IOS's, easy peasy -

Did that get a UK physical release or was it PSN only? There's a US seller listing them for about 9 quid on eBay.

EDIT

Just noticed that Amazon have Fat Princess Fistful of Cake for £3.33 (Essentials version).

Passed an import shooter on the psp called Dangei Orta ??

Anyone heard of it? It was pricey but looked great on the back.

Trouble is, I can't find a single mention of it online, when I tried to look for reviews.

Maybe it has a different name locally. :?

Only thing i could suggest is to see if it looked like anything else - or - if it wasnt too expensive buy it and see. I passed up on Pixeljunk at the weekend but comments seem to be favourable so now I regret it. Should have researched more on my mobile.

Needed to resurrect this thread for at least one reason - but also to add that I just bought Popolocrois , Riviera and Ultimate Ghosts n goblins - my first games for a while.

Ok main reason - I passed up on a game today (as I have done a few times and regretted it) mainly because I had never heard of it and because it looked like a Warioware ripoff.

It was called WTF - Worktimefun.

Anyone come accross this or played it and is it any good - or should i just quit asking stupid questions,buy it and enjoy?

Can't say I've heard of it!

However - Ultimate Ghosts and Goblins. The most difficult game of all time??

I was hoping it was a compiled pack of Ghost n Goblins / Ghouls n Ghosts - turns out its just a graphically enhanced rehash. With slow fire responses.

I bought it ages ago for a fiver I think, but it's still sat on my 'to be played' shelf. Not much help I know! :oops:

Not really - but nice to at least know of one person who bought it. Wont get back over that way for a while now so its out of my range at the moment.
