playing ps1 games on the go is still mindblowing to me
they feel so good on the psp and its perfect for picking it up and playing a little
playing ps1 games on the go is still mindblowing to me
playing ps1 games on the go is still mindblowing to me
Pretty good emu machine? What is that a 1000 or 3k? I had a 1k on release and didn’t find out about its abilities until way later.
its a 3k
i dont emu on it only ps1 which is not really emulation (as far as i understand the psp is so similar to the ps1 that ps1 code runs)
wonder how good snes really runs on it might have to get dkc 2 to test
How did so many people get tricked into thinking the PS1 capabilities of a PSP are not emulation
its worse than duckstation
PSP was really ahead of its time. Chinkhelds were still in the garbage bin famiclone phase so PSP didn't really have any real competition, it was THE emulator handheld in the early to late 2000s. The only other handheld that could emulate PS1 back then was GP2X and its PS1 emulator was nowhere near as good as POPS
> it was THE emulator handheld in the early to late 2000s.
Absolutely not you revisionist dipshit. The psp wasn’t even around till 2005 that’s not early 2000’s. THE handheld emulator of the early 2000’s was the GP32. It was the first “homebrew handheld” that was made specifically for hombrew and emulation. It had a huge scene in the early 2000’s with hundreds of games and even some game engines written for it. It also had commercial releases too. You probably don’t remember cause you were too young to into coding homebrew and the underground scene. Everybody who was into hacking and coding knew about it, if you were into emulators you probably knew about it. Just cause they didn’t sell it at wall mart doesn’t mean it didn’t have a huge impact on handheld the emulation scene today. It literally started the space race of handheld emulation and was a top contender through the many iterations of the gamepark company until the pyra and gpd win started to gain traction. But I doubt you know an iota of what I’m talking about because you probably just puppet YouTubers opinions.
sounds like cope that nobody cares about an obscure chinkshit handheld to me
t. didn't have a PSP
I did, but I also had a gp32 and a ds.
In 2007 I had my chinkfriend hack my psp1k and he put G-Darius on it and I put gpSP in it with every GBA game I wanted to play in it. I beat a bunch of games and got into Pokemon for the first time. Way more people had a hacked PSP than a GP32. The PSP was better and more popular. It had a bigger influence in portable emulation and hacking consoles.
>It had a bigger influence in portable emulation.
Absolutely not. It took off where gamepark left off for sure I'm not gonna deny the psp it's legacy of homebrew and emulation but you're just wrong. The gp32 still has more homebrew stuff than the psp. It was a huge influence to handheld homebrew/emulation. It was around 4 years before the psp and in that time it influenced many people and companies. It's way more important than the psp. why are you so fucking stupid, why can't you understand this?
Why can't you understand that GP32 was a niche failed experiment that achieved nothing and the PSP was a mainstream console that brought portable emulation and hacking to the masses where people actually used it? Even a sperg like you can understand that. It can't be simpler.
It's not about bringing it to the masses it's about it's influence on those that would end up making homebrew/emulation on the psp and ds. Lots of those people got into hacking and emulation because of the gp32. It was the first handheld to be built around homebrew, it still has one of the largest homebrew libraries of all handheld device. It never failed it got multiple revisions up into the early 2010's. Youre just not actually in the homebrew scene, gay. You're a surface feeder leeching off of those who actually hack things and put in the work. You don't know shit yet you still spout off like a blabbering retard. You're just a basic bitch anon.
>It's way more important than the psp
Yeah dude some literally who Korean device with a 133 mhz clock and sold 30k units was way more important than the PSP.
What has to happen to a person to make them act like this? Just rabidly lying like this? Are you on some Seoul payroll to promote Korean culture online? Singing MapleStory's praises would be much more convincing dude
You just don't know, you're not in the scene now and you weren't back then. It was bigger than the psp in the homebrew scene. You're a walmart tier videogame enjoyer and that's fine, just shut the fuck up when your knowledge of shit depends on a quick search of Wikipedia.
That's more than the amount of coders who make hombrew for free so your dumbass can pirate Vidya, moron. You really think there were millions of people developing and hacking consoles in the 2000s?
Do you think 30,000 Koreans bought it just to develop software on it? The PSP was exposed to more developers and developers-to-be GLOBALLY than the GP32 and that is a fact. The skilled programmers are here in the West, not in fucking Korea: they have a handful of tech companies with zero startups and zero hacker culture. The most renowned Korean software is Samsung's UI for Android.
I already stated the psp took off where the gp32 left off. My whole point was from idiot claiming psp was THE emulation machine of the early 2000s and that's just not true. The gp32 was extremely important for kick-starting the whole handheld emulation and homebrew scene. Like I already said as well, the gp32 still to this day has one of the largest homebrew libraries. You cant deny it's influence and major hombrew scene. You just weren't around back then, please stop trying to revise history from the point of view as a consumer and not somebody who was actually participating in the homebrew scene. You're trying to downplay the importance of the gp32 because you are ignorant of what perspired in those days of early handheld homebrew and I'm not gonna just let you Wikipedia historians YouTubeify reality.
If anything the PSP scene kicked off from where the GBA scene left off, as it was a nifty little device that wasn't limited to a 30,000 unit run in South fucking Korea. Do you know anything about the GBA scene, Kim?
>The most important and influential portable emulation device in history.
>YOU JUST HAD TO BE THERE! TRUST ME DUDE!
I believe you guy, GP32 changed the world and this forbidden knowledge is known only to a small cabal of Korean hackers. Sony, Wikipedia, Walmart, and Youtube are trying to rewrite the history of emulation.
Not even. I don't even really know many people from back in the day who were Korean and in the Hombrew scene. This is also how I know you dont know anything. Everybody had to import their console from liksang.com(Alibaba before Alibaba) or try and get one on ebay. The homebrew scene is small. The same people are in most other console homebrew scenes. The gp32 was on everybody's radar who was into hacking and homebrew. These people, who bring you the emulators and softmods you freely enjoy, they loved the gp32 and lots of them got into homebrew because of the gp32. You're shitting on the legacy of emulation you now stand on. How fucking more retarded can you get?
>Everybody had to import their console from liksang.com(Alibaba before Alibaba) or try and get one on ebay
You're not helping your argument by agreeing with us that it cost 6 kidneys and a written deed to your arsehole to even acquire one of them in the first place; I'm sure that did wonders for disseminating a device that already only sold 30k
I already stated the fact that 30000 units is more than the whole of the homebrew scene coding roster. You know the people who actually make emulators and softmods. The average consumer doesn't hack or make homebrew for consoles. The influence of the gp32 isn't on the average consumer it's on the actual coders and hackers who got there hands on a gp32 way before the psp even came out.
>is more than the whole of the peepeepoopoo
Do you not think that the amount of potential coders will increase as distribution increases? Do you? Fucking tell me you daft cunt, don't fucking dodge the question I swear to fucking God. You fucking spastic, fuck you Kim there's no way you can be this demented in good faith. Assure me that you have an IQ north of 80 and can comprehend abstract ideas like scale economies and per capita. Assure me, please, give me anything that demonstrates your understanding.
Do you think there's even a homebrew scene without coders? Wtf does the amount of units sold have to do with homebrew for consoles from the 2000s? It's a completely different game, billions more people in the world and the world is much more connected. The only people who were hacking consoles back then were into weird obscure shit like the gp32. There was not hundreds of YouTubers and redditors spewing anything retro videogame related. In the 2000s it was common for the average videogamer to think retro games were dumb and it was cool to only play the newest games and consoles. It was only because things like the gp32 did the idea of handheld emulation machines even hit the mainstream. People who owned a psp in 2007 didn't know or care about homebrew. Which brings me to another point. The original psp mods so you could even run homebrew involved soldering the battery, this didn't change for some time.
Do you think there's a homebrew scene without access to the device fuckwit? And guess what? Guess what gay? READ THIS gay SINCE YOU'RE A QUESTION-DODGING LOW-IQ NONCE:
YOU YOURSELF fucking said earlier that people LEARNT to code by developing for the GP32. Why the fuck would the PSP – which is also newer and therefore had access to fresh blood – be exempt from this? You fucking idiot. If you dodge the question again then I'm not going to reply to you and I think anybody who continues to humour you from this point is a fool.
You obvious weren't there and I also stated that people who made Hombrew were usually doing so for multiple consoles. Your argument doesn't even make sense. The psp did take off where the gp32 left off, it wasn't the only console on the homebrew scene. The psp,ds and GBA were huge consoles that also had homebrew scenes, but there was the whole gp32(gamepark) line of handheld emulation machines that pushed the way for all emulation machines. Gp32, gp2x, canooo, dingoo... All the way up until the pyra and the gpd win. Of course you probably don't know any of this you only benefit from this arduous homebrew journey.
>You're shitting on the legacy of emulation you now stand on.
Said the retard replace the emulation behemoth that was the PSP with deprecated chinkshit. Get help.
My knowledge comes from getting a PSP instead of a GP32 because it was better in every way and it's still relevant today. Go back to your gay secret club where you fantasize about mattering when the PSP is actually responsible for the modern world of portable emulation since it made the GP32 obsolete. Simple as.
Many of the people who developed for the psp also developed for the gp32. The gp32 influenced the hombrew scene more than your little Sony fried chicken brain can understand. You have nothing to actually say but how much of a fanatical psp midwit you are (and Im a psp fan too, I'm just not a short sighted mouth breather).
I'm not a PSP fan you fucking retard. It was a very flawed consoled but I'm just not a blind zealot that can't recognize how the PSP was plain and simple the best portable and most popular emulation device for years and perfectly useable today. I don't care about your faggy scene that achieved nothing. The PSP was the catalyst that refueled my love of old games. Every personal attack you tried has failed because the only way you can argue about the relevance of your irrelevant console is to create a character that doesn't exists. If I'm honest it's hard to imagine anyone not recognizing the impact PSP had on portable emulation. Go be gay somewhere else.
I never denied the importance and awesomeness of the psp, shit for brains. Youre jumping into a conversation midway, cause I said something you didn't like a put the psp. You think you're correct, because for you the psp made you fall in love with old games again. which is fine, I'm saying that without the huge homebrew scene of the gp32 there would be a lot less development and hacking of consoles in the 2000s. You can be a surface dwelling retard with atrocious reading comprehension all day, it's not going to change what actually happened in the past.
Yeah I was on gbatemp back in the day and let me tell you what... The GBA homebrew scene was shit compared to the gp32 scene at the time. There wasn't even a comparison. This is how I know you're all retarded zoomer revionists, you think the accumulated homebrew of twenty years is exactly the same as when it first started? It's literally retarded
You literally said the GP32, which didn't have a global release, which sold 30k units, was more important for the homebrew scene than the PSP.
>you think the accumulated homebrew of twenty years is exactly the same as when it first started
Oh, so your working assumption is that I'm not even talking about the 2000's scenes and instead trying to own you with a Daedalus update from last week? Yeah, I guess it's really easy to convince yourself you're right when you assume everybody else is a fucking retard arguing in bad faith. You sound severely mentally ill and the passion you are putting into being rabidly wrong tells me that you were not in fact there but are one of many zoomer losers on Ganker insecure about their age. Go take a bushwalk and rethink your life mate.
It was more important than the psp for homebrew in the 2000s. You really had to be in the scene back in the day. Right now Im arguing with a bunch of people who were never there telling me I'm wrong about important the gp32 was for handheld emulation. Just because it's not on YouTube videogame historians channels, doesnt mean shit. It's still got the one of the largest homebrew libraries of any handheld, why if it was a nothing consoles that nobody knew about? Why would it have so much homebrew and emulators before anything like that was really around, especially on handhelds? Why was it such a huge thing in the Hombrew scene back in the day(ohh that's right you don't anything about that you only know Bout the Walmart psp bundle)
"Walmart" this, "Walmart" that, dude I was joking when I said you were being paid to promote Korean culture but now I'm fucking convinced. We don't have Walmart in Australia btw which is where many of the most talented programmers are from.
Sorry ime arguing multiple people any many of them have been so adamant about the psp being more influential in the homebrew scene in the 2000s than the gp32. It's not true I'm just getting tired of people who need er even were online when the handheld homebrew revolution was just getting started. I understand the psp has become an impressive emulation machine, that was not the case in the 2000s, that didn't happen until the 2010s. Emulation in the 2000s was rough, except for the nes. Most people didn't even know what the fuck it was and it was also hard to find roms compared to today. I say revionists history because people don't remember those days it's like everything that's happened since then is compacted into the whole history of most things these days.
>that didn't happen until the 2010s
Holy fucking shit. Unbelievable. You are just a liar.
And I'm saying that the PSP was in every way more influential and significant than the GP32. Keep trying to rewrite all documented and experiential history.
Nobody cares or knows about your chink shit, stop chimping out you autistic poorfag
Sorry that sounded a lot less autistic and rage induced as I was writing it also I didn’t read you’re whole post…
You’re not even the guy I’m replying to and you’re a retarded mouth breather who doesn’t understand shit. If it wasn’t for the GP32 the state of handheld emulation would be abysmal. They spearheaded the whole movement, it’s like the importance of pong for videogames.
>its worse than duckstation
he is full of shit. try playing thps2 on duckstation and then psp ps1 eboot and you can feel the lag on duckstation far more severe
PSP has native PS1 emulator because PSP was selling digital ps1 games back then.
So PSP is basically built for PS1 games on a hardware level.
And technically it's natural to play PS1 games on PSP because PSP was meant to do that officially.
I remember when PSP announced it - everybody was whining and crying about that on gaming forums (reee who the fuck would buy DIGITAL GAMES IT'S LITERALLY LIKE BUYING AIR lol...and look at us now).
If only we knew how cool it will be in the future to have PSP and perfectly run ps1 games!
indeed. especially if you consider that "new games" sometimes come out for it
it's not native level emulator. it's magic of sony having source code for ps1 so POPS is just really good software emulator
PSP being the same MIPS architecture made it a lot easier to support PS1 games.
What a weird and wrong comment.
>Meant to do that
On the go to where?
On trains and planes and shit bro
Yep but its not much else for me lol
You can remap buttons but the default is having the analog mapped to the r2 and l2
Some games are probably unplayable I guess
PSP is basically an official handheld PS1. it's so good
I try to avoid playing home console games on handhelds but JRPGs are just so much better when you can lounge about wherever you want.
I've never tried it but how do you play games without R2 and L2?
It's the greatest handheld ever made. Vitafags and tendies gonna ruin this thread as always so just ignore them.
thats why you should shill psp on Ganker
Ganker would suck MIPS' processor dick any day vs garbage like ARM that enabled modern pajeetware and largely responsible for vita's shills because anyone could code for it with 0 skills due to ARM's cross compatible instruction set, while you have to know C and assembly for psp's homebrew aka be competent
i was personally asking Ganker how could i securely connect psp to internet and if you have openwrt it's very easy because you can isolate it with zones and firewall rules, practically making it very secure even if wpa protocol is old
wiby.me sites look gorgeous on psp. it's like you entering forgotten internet and see it how it was meant to be seen
>It's the greatest handheld ever made
not anymore. PSP is good but with SteamDeck you can buy just for 400$ and fill it up with literally ALL GAMES there is no point to have any other handheld if you want emulators
would you ever actually play this on the go tho? psps are so cheap and actually fit in your pocket
if i had a steam deck id be scared of breaking it and it seems way too big to truly bring about
That thing is bulky as fuck though.
I literally just chuck my psp go in my pocket whenever I have to take the metro and just grind away at gt2 endurance races back and forth because the thing is so small.
I know the deck is bigger than a switch which is already massive, not really ideal for pick up and play stuff.
Thats literally just a portable pc of course it can play anything
>3DS can emulate all Nintendo handhelds + NES/SNES flawlessly
>PS Vita can also handle PSP/PS1 and older Nintendo consoles
What does PSP have over them? I don't get it.
Judging by the other posts in the thread it seems llke you will call me a Vita shill for not understanding but I've never owned either and I'm genuinely curious.
Honestly the GPD handhelds look like it would be more comfortable but I'm unwilling to spend that much money on Chinese products because it'll probably crumble the moment I pick it up.
I would have bought a vita instead but psps are much cheaper thats it
I also have an original small 3ds but i mainly just use that for 3ds games
>What does PSP have over them? I don't get it.
ability to solder new batteries and get 10+ hours of time. plus it still fits in pocket better
And here comes the deckfag insecure about their $873490328590328435903248903452ui90234843290345890643894306634890 paper weight.
It plays all Ganker and is comfortable to hold. That is literally the only criteria that a system needs to meet for me and most others don't. It's not my fault I've got gorilla grippers that cramp up on anything that doesn't have handles.
Dude shut the fuck up before I lick your ass you annoying gay.
It's really not that big
I'm the anon that posted pic:
I'm playing handhelds only and my regular consoles collecting dust.
PSP is great and i have THREE of them (first one then psp 3000 and the special edition one) but Steam Deck literally cancels all other consoles except 2 screen ones (DS/3DS) because you can't imitate that naturally.
You get used to huge size really quickly. I don't mind the size of deck at all now.
And fucking god it's so amazing to have literally all games.
Just install 1TB or do a madman thing - 1TB SSD + 2TB card and you holding the HOLE HISTORY OF VIDEOGAMES in your hands.
+ it's so openly customizable and Valve encourages that
I think your pic might be bait but I can't help myself. Do people really buy those GB cart readers for use with emulators? What is the point, are they afraid of the nintendo ninjas?
>I think your pic might be bait but I can't help myself
WHY zoomies think that EVERYTHING is either a bait or a meme or other crap?
Steam deck is for older people (30+) and many of those already have shit ton of cartridges.
Of course i find the idea of connecting my physical game to steam deck and use it is fun as fuck
>>Of course i find the idea of connecting my physical game to steam deck and use it is fun as fuck
Imagine being so easily entertained by fiddling with pointless bullshit that one finds intentionally convoluted processes like that "fun".
>Imagine being so easily entertained by fiddling with pointless bullshit
Yeah, if there's one thing playing retro video games is known for, it's the point of it.
Fun is subjective. What one person might find not fun is what another person might find fun.
>What is the point, are they afraid of the nintendo ninjas?
I guess maybe they work with the save files?
Can you confirm?
>Can you confirm?
I would like the Deck if it weren't so goddamn big. PSP was the perfect compromise between screen size, weight, and and comfort in the hand for the controls. All it was missing was two more shoulder buttons.
No thats ps vita. As a hacked console, its PSP 2.0 and without losing the benefit of being an actual portable console. Switch and Deck are handhelds, but they are very far from being actual portables, which is what a handheld console should be also about
true and i loved PSP because of how portable it is. But stuff like deck can spoil you fast.
Because for example for me now Sonic Racing Transformed is like some sort of PC-version of mariokart because i keep playing it in handheld anywhere i want cause it's on Steam
>Because for example for me now Sonic Racing Transformed is like some sort of PC-version of mariokart because i keep playing it in handheld anywhere i want cause it's on Steam
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is on the Vita, infact it was on the Vita before it was on PC. Your point is unclear.
The deck is too big. My choice for gaming on the go is either a 3ds for Nintendo games or a Psvita for psp/psx games. The ps vita I find to be a better emulation machine than something like the 3ds but the 3ds does have a much better Gba emulator. Maybe in the future the switch will become a good machine for Ganker on the go but the lack of native backward compatibility does hinder it a little and the switch's game library isn't retro so I can't mention that.
Back when I had mine, I think I played Jet Moto 2 and Resident Evil 3 on it and was turned off by improper L2/R2 support so I gave up. Mainly used my PSP for Minis, NeoGeo, and PC Engine classics from the store cause they were small and I could add several to my 1GB memory stick.
I'm saving up for one of these actually but because I have a few games I'd like to play on the go like Fire Pro Wrestling World, MGSV, and soon Street Fighter 6.
what exactly makes it better than Vita?
Nothing, it is a cope.
>Ganker told me to stick with PSP and never bother with Vita for retro shit
>Decided to buy Vita anyway
>It's better than PSP in every way
And I thought this board was better.
The battery mod and better resolution/aspect ratio is the only reason to get a psp. The Vita stretches the psps resolution when emulating it.
The Vita benefits from being able to do the exact same quasi-native PS1 playback that the PSP does thanks to sharing the same CPU between those consoles, using the same backwards compatibility method that the PS2 uses. It's why I use my PSTV for PS1 games more than my actual PS1 now, it's a great way to get them running on an HDTV without any hitches.
Does the Vita play psp games as well as the psp? I've heard it actually emulates them and has input delay, but I don't know if it's true.
It does and they look like blurry shit because it cant play them in their native resolution.
you can uprez them 2x with a plugin
Name of plugin?
Btw PSP games on the Vita are crisp clear because it uses integer scaling by default.
PS1 games are scaled depending on their resolution, and you can disable scaling altogether.
Yes, it does. No TV out on the Vita, and some apps/homebrews/plugins/manuals may not work but all the official PSP games work on the Vita exactly the same as on the PSP, DLC included.
>No TV out on the Vita
Not officially, but you can use the Playstation/Vita TV and
What about the shoulder buttons?
L2 and R2 are mapped to the control stick by default. Left is L2, right is R2, and up is L2+R2.
what if I wanna play ape escape or something?
It got remade for the psp lol
out of luck. same goes for games like treasures of the deep
>what if I wanna play ape escape or something?
>It got remade for the psp lol
I unironically like the psp version more than the ps1. Even after you master the stupid ps1 controls they're still not as fun as if they just programmed the game with good controls
Man. And you can have savestates too nowadays. Feels good.
Thought I'm a PSP Go lover.
Where did you get the shell and is it any good? Theres a scratch on my screen which really gets on my nerves even though its not even that bad
I've been modding PSPs for a while. Rule of thumb is: chinese shells are shit. But some are less shitty.
I found this seller. He takes approx 20%~ more for the shells but they are decent. I built a blue one recently and it was far, far better than the transparent shell from the previous PSP build. Here's the seller:
You will have to swap out the button rubbers still though].
>more than 1000 years in MsPaint and we never got clear shell replacements for the PSPGo.
Fuck, i hate this world!
I have a white Go that I cant part with, even though I have upgraded to a white Vita 2000. The Go was so perfect and ahead of its time when it comes to ditching the UMD and digital storage.

Have you ever though about a battery mod? Ive recently been looking into modeling a case that not only protects your psp and adds support for your hands but has a spot for a bigger battery mod. You'd possibly get 8-10 hours of life with one of those big guys.
Not really. My entire PSP collection is physical. Well, aside from PS1 classics that I mainly play on PS3. According to the inventory of my collection I took earlier in the month I have 20 physical PSP games, and double or more I want to grab off Ebay when I have spare cash.
Well with the case I have in mind you don't need to remove or mod anything but the battery and probably leave the battery door off while it's in the case.
The only mod I've considered battery-wise is getting the PSP to run off of a brick of AA batteries. Still, I'll gladly look at whatever you are thinking of, Anon.
That actually saved my ass.
My psp was starting to skip reading discs (it would stutter up and that grey "yo bro you wanna quit game?" screen would show up without warning and need a few seconds to restart reading the disc).
I tried selling my psp at Game but the woman there put a game in and it took a while to load the UMD and she went all "can't buy it! Doesn't read the discs right" so I kept it.
Like three weeks later I'm browsing Ganker and there's like 3 PSP hacking threads (remember, with the demo for that Japanese book game?) and the rest is history.
>I tried selling my psp at Game but the woman there put a game in and it took a while to load the UMD and she went all "can't buy it! Doesn't read the discs right" so I kept it.
Kek. I traded a N64, no cables, games or controllers and I was unsure if it even worked to some random chick on Craigslist for a PSP and games back in the late 00's or so. Had dog bite marks, did not like to read umd discs and generally was trash. Took it to Gamestop the next day and traded it for a used but like new PSP 2k, MHFU and Viewtiful Joe. Dunno how I got so lucky with the trade, but I appreciate the dude letting me blatantly cheat the system like that.
sorry man, physical media ages and dies - digital media lives on. Either its the laser reading the disc or the discs itself, its going to physically crap out at some point. Also load times are much faster and tolerable.
I ran two PSPs into the ground playing PS1 popstation, Gundam Vs Next, and GBA/Genesis/CPS2/Neo Geo/NES. I loved that little thing.
>Gundam Vs Next
Translated? Loved Gundam Extreme Vs Force on the Vita.
Nah. But you don't need a translation to play it. It's very straight forward.
Good to know, thanks.
Gotcha. I just have been using non-CFW/hacked consoles and Sony made their release of SH unplayable on Vita, strangely.
I love my portable PS1, I'm pretty sure I bought like half of the PSone classics off PSN before I realized you could hack the system.
I will say though I have no idea why the hell they don't let you have analog controls in PS1 emulation. It doesn't matter for most PS1 games but a few games like Spyro really feel work having to play with digital movement.
can you not remap the controls on PSP? On vita you can map the d-pad to the sticks.
The PSP is great for that, glad I picked it over getting a DS at the time, because it just let me play all the good shit on the go. Vita is nice too since you get the second stick and the touchpad L/R for the games that use that. If only Sony had realised to lean into the emulation market subtly instead of throwing fits about their memory cards and firmware they would've probably sold more of those things.
Still use either of those every time I go on holiday.
If memory serves you could remap them, but it's been a while since I've used it.
The Vita supports analog inputs, but the PSP doesn't, it'll let you map the D-pad to the analog stick but no actual analog inputs.
Has anyone in this thread beaten Silent Hill on PSP? I tried it once over a decade ago but did not get very far and died like an absolute bitch, but once I get my PSP back up and running I was considering giving it another shot. Still a bit annoyed that Sony did not make it playable on the Vita for some strange reason.
both the psp "silent hill" and the ps1 silent hill work fine on my vita
I did it. Works fine from start to finish, with the exception, maybe, for the ghosting during loading screens.
Good to know, thanks.
Very cool. Might have to toss CFW on a memory stick to play that.
Oh nice. My friend recently gave me a pretty scuffed up silver 2000 that he's put the hacked firmware on to play isos and snes/megadrive roms. I don't have photos on this computer but I bought a new white shell for it and a bunch of actual glass screens off aliexpress. I really need to post pictures of the glass and provide a link. It changes everything
The ripper roo fight is awful on such a tiny screen
Currently playing Vagrant Story and Front Mission 3 (I didn´t beat them back in the day on psx) and Replaying Megaman Legends (Struggling a bit with lock-on but doing OK)
It also emulates Capcom arcade up to CPSII and the Neo Geo ones as well.
PSP is one of the best, had one for years, traveled with me around the world, still working still giving me hours of fun.
Fuck I LOVE THIS MACHINE
I cannot imagine playing Vagrant Story without L2
I just set it to L1 and move the camera around with the analog
how's the fps for SH1?
psp still doesnt know how to do slow mo scene during sh1 loading screens, so you get solitaire effect on it
Well, sometimes it drags a little bit, but I think it did so back in the psx as well. Maybe not, I´m really not the right anon to answer this. I started playing on Atari 2600 and have always been a consolefag so I don´t really mind FPS slowing down as long as I can still move around and play the game. If it does have some kind of slow'down it´s not too terrible.
It also correctly output 240p over component if you have a PSP 2000 or 3000 with video out support
It’s a fun portable emulation machine but the prices on these are kinda iffy. Probably because it’s scarce now

Fuck, I need to buy a second PSP for backup purposes. I need to be able to play my UMD collection if something happens to my current PSP.
Can you use your PSP to make ISO backups of your UMDs?
I'm pretty sure that's a basic function in like all PSP cfw, press select on the XMB I think to bring up a menu for that.
My psp needs a new battery to get up and running again but the screens scratched to shit..
Maybe I'll get a psp go and relive the psp days on that.
is there any easy way to connect a psp to a tv
Sony had a cable for it. I remember my brother owned one but he lost it.
What's the best model of a PSP?
2k or 3k is fine
1k has half the ram and less homebrew compatibility as a result. also a really shitty screen
Go is fine if you can make do with 16gb of internal storage as those micro pro duo cards are a bitch to find
dont they all use the hard to find cards
Sort of but not really. The 1/2/3K are designed to use Memory Stick Pro Duo, but micro SD adapters for them are cheap as hell so it doesn't matter.
The Go uses Memory Stick Micro, which has no adapter and you can barely even find them in 16gb, let alone 32gb.
They exist but they're uncommon since you have to cut the plastic inside the go to fit them in. They're more similar to Vita 3G slot sd card adapter
Why hasn't this adapter been cloned yet? I really want a couple of these so bad.
Good that there's an option then. Hopefully it's easier for people to install a PSVSD, I bought one for my 3G vita and wound up stripping all the screws holding the modem in and ended up having to cut it out. The mess of fiberglass shards and conductive PCB materials that made all over my Vita's guts was about as pretty as it was to clean up, but it hasn't blown up yet.
Man, I just want a Vita memory card that does not cost a fuckton or take up my game card slot, since I own way too many Vita games.
I was thinking of getting a PSP Go to use kinda like a "hybrid" PS1, set it up on my CRT and take it on the go when I need it.
I thought about getting one from Japan but these things are apparently super expensive. Why is that? It's actually way cheaper to just look for one locally.
there's some corrosion on the plastic film on my PSP Street's screen. Replacement faceplates aren't manufactured because the circuits for the Start, Select, etc buttons are on the faceplate themselves. When cleaning the thing out years ago I also lost the membrane for the d-pad and a 3000 series d-pad membrane doesn't fit.
get a new psp
expensive now in Australia, a year or two ago you could get em for 20 US a piece now it's like 100 US on average
I remember buying my PSP Street (PSP-E1000) from Big W for $70 AUD brand new back in 2013.
Same bro, but for me it was 2014. You got a sister who needs marrying off? Gimme that E1000 and we have a deal
How do I prevent DuckStation from automatically creating a retarded "resume" save state whenever I alt+f4? Trust me, I've tried ALL the options. There simply is no way to disable this except by either 1) clicking power off without saving, or 2) enable confirm exit and deselect the save state box EVERY single time you want to quit a game.
Psp could still be a daily driver media device if you could somehow connect to the modern web.
Crazy how ahead of its time it was.
it supports h264 codec which is still widely used today. so yeah. that part aged exceptionally well
Oh yes I am well aware, that's why it is so close to being viable.
The SSL certs restricting the RSS feeds is the biggest drawback.
i blame html5
that's what actually killed psp's web capabilities, not ssl
there is homebrew for java emulator which can run really quirky opera mini browser designed for old phones and that supports modern ssl, so you can still do https
but issue is... modern web being html5 still gimps your ability
The lack of memory really hinders it, having built in functions no longer work because of security is unfortunate.
Ive been meaning to make the location free player work with ota TV for the memes too.
Or just use ppsspp on your phone
does your phone come with 4 face buttons, 2 shoulder buttons, analog stick, dpad and select/start buttons?
Yeah it does
that's not a phone
quite honestly. i tried playing persona 2 as psp ps1 eboot at first falling for whole "it's comfy to play long jrpg on portable device, especially if it's battery modded", but persona 2 is slow as shit, all animations take ages to play out, the animation for each battle start is not helping either. i cannot play that game without turbo button so i moved my save to phone instead
>shit game is bad
>PS1 version of persona 2
>playing ps1 games on the go is still mindblowing to me
Why? We've been doing it for 20 years
anon you can play ps3 games on the go now
emulation is gay
if you're an old fag you should play steinsgate. its peak nostalgia. theres so many weird 2chan and 2010 pop culture junk in it. I totally remember all the junk about how CERN was gonna create a black hole with the LHC and all that bullshit. Fun times.
stupid dumb tourist scum
I was pretty active on the old PSP hacking forums and did graphic work on a few shitty homebrew games. I can confirm that the GP32 was the big homebrew handheld before PSP and DS. I will also confirm the reason later handhelds didn't have a cool homebrew scene, just retroarch and piracy, is because a large part of the PSP scene saw dollar signs when the iphone came out and went into mobile coding.
i parasite eve or code veronica x on my s20fe without lags before sleep when i have to travel for work
Scaling kinda sux
how hard is it to set one up to flawlessly play PSX & PSP game? im in some pretty bad debt.
Focus on the money first lil bro
>psp buttons only start working after the system has been on for a while
solidified grime. after console heats up it melts some of it
how about you clean it up
battery bulged what is a good replacement
