I love PSPs

Post by station » Tue Jan 04, 2011 4:04 pm

I've never really ventured into PSP emulation before, purely because I didn't think I could get it working, but sorted it today on a recent (6.20) firmware as well!

I only ever used it to play -that game with the squidgy spheres in-. Emulators increase it's possibilities hugely, it's a pity Sony don't like homebrew and you have to start it up through a savegame. :(

If you have custom firmware you don't!

I've owned a pong console, Atari VCS, Vic 20, Spectrum, Megadrive, Saturn, Dreamcast, Wii, XBox 360, Gameboy & PSP and I can honestly say my hacked PSP is my best purchase ever. The emulation is just fantastic. Get one now!

They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

I too love my PSP. It is hacked with an impossible number of games on, though for the past year or so I've mainly used it for actual PSP games (madness I know!).

It's portability is a huge convenience.

The SNES emulator is a bit disappointing but apart form that it is completely ace.

I just bought a PSP 300 for the TV Output. Is this one hackable?

I'm not sure which is hackable these days. I've got a PSP 2000 slim which is fully hacked, but I doubt I could do it again without a few weeks of research.

Can anyone recommend a decent replacement/spare battery? I hate it when my battery goes flat when I'm away.

Similarly - does anyone have a decent battery recharger that is smaller than the official Sony beast??

You can get one from Game for about £5 I think. They also do one for £15, which as far as I can see is no different to the cheaper one at all (luxury packaging, maybe?).

EDIT: In reference to a charger :)

psp-hacks.com wrote: psp-100X= all are hackable regardless of firmware with the use of pandora battery and magic memcard.
psp-200X= old ones are fully hackable with pandora(3.95 and below brand new in the box) and new ones with unhackable motherboards are semi-hackable if ur firmware is 6.20 or lower.
psp-300X= all are semi-hackable if ur firmware is 6.20 or lower.
psp-GO = semi-hackable if ur firmware is 6.20 or lower.

Which firmware version does your psp have? you can find this out my going to the psp system settings menu then Scroll down to the "System Settings" icon and press X. Scroll down to "System Information" and press X. The screen will display the PSP's MAC address, system software version, and nickname. The "System Software Version" is the firmware version.

Never was a fan of the PSP until I custom firmware'd it (as those who listened to the old WGAx audio shows will know). It is a superb machine for retro once you have unshackled it.

Loved PSP before and after Zetr0 sorted my firmware and turned it into a RETRO wonder.On my 3rd Phat (1 broke my my own clumsy hand, 1 never used, 3rd running custom firmware for emulation purposes-Still buy original games and occ.UMD movie) and just bought a 3000 model of the very kind Shinobi so i can play likes of GTA:Chinatown, MGS Peacewalker etc from original UMD.Seemed a typical Sony of late product at 1 time:Great potential, very little being done with it.Hopefully Sony learnt some lessons for PSP2..but very much doubt it.
