I'm sure there are a few like that out there.
Been buying lots of NTSC and NTSC/J PS2 games and they are much more colourful on the shelf :D

Would be nice to have some import ideas for PSP as I wouldn't know where to start. Got J'eanne D'arc ages back and loved it and had to buy Manhunt 2 before it was released here. Other than that i haven't imported anything else for my PSP.

Darius Burst is my fave PSP game and Jap only, It's quite expensive though.

Ikki Tousen: Eloquent Fist is a good side scrolling beat em up with anime girls.

So just under two weeks of starting my collection again.

I have set myself a rule, to begin with, that I will spend no more than £3 per game (or average £3 if multiple games in one transaction) and that also includes postage if buying on eBay! Of course when I go for the imports and special editions again I'll have to spend more

It just makes it a bit more fun, a bit more challenging and keeps the wallet happy.

This is what I have so far...

Some decent titles in there for the money you've paid, Joey. Like your buying rules too, keeps the interest up. :D

My PSP collecting is pretty much at a standstill....probably because i don't have a PSP at the moment :lol: (although that's not strictly true as my son has one that i can use) but i prefer to own my own hardware. I do pick up the odd game if i see them at a good price.

My games are packed away in the attic, but it'll be nice to dig them out and dust them off when i find another decent console.

Hammerin' Hero is a good side scroller beat em up. Kencho Badass Rumble is a 3d brawler/fighting game which reminds me quite a bit of the Yakuza series

I like the PSP boxes, must be the size and shape.

I've sold a couple of my PSP games to the local retro shop. Im slowly whittling my collection down to just what I want (whilst keeping the ISO files of course!). Can't see anything I'd want to buy now, happy with what I've got (about 40+ cases and 90 ISO files).

I wouldn't mind getting a decent quality PSP Go before they all disappear though.

What were the official and non official psp magazines at the time? I can find a little info on the official one that disappeared in '09 but that's about it.

Anybody still have any?

Off the top of my head I've recently imported

Bleach Soul Carnival and Zettai Zetsumei Tohsi 3, Bleach is the japanese release but the other one I believe is from Hong Kong

I still want to import Soul Carnival 2 plus I've got my eye on getting a few more RPGs for the collection.

The problem with my PSP collection is I tend to keep getting rid of games then buying them back later on, I think I must have bought the rereleases of Final Fantasy 1 and 2 at least twice each and I want to pick them up again now.

Has anyone played either of the Star Ocean games?

I had both when I was originally collecting but never got round to them. I've started Kingdom hearts: Birth by sleep but i'm not really into it at all, I think its the Disney side i'm just not clicking with.
