I haven't really paid all that much attention to the PSP hype and while it's a bit silly to play Zelda III on one, I'd still like to have that option available to me if I get one.

Anyway, what I'm asking is what's the deal with getting these fuckers hacked and stuff?
I heard something about newer models with better protection.
Are all the European ones like this?

(Sorry if this thread was hard to read, it was hard to write too as I'm just coming off a hangover).

I decided thismorning when drunk that I'd get a PSP soon if I got the job.
This was based solely on the fact that I was enjoying the Ridge Racers OST at the time

We need money for SGWH though, maybe you should save some for that first?

You can play Zelda III on the PSP? I thought they only hacked it for NES games? Sad thing is, I would only recommend it to you if you actually can play SNES games on it...I mean what are you actually going to play on it? The Metal Gear card game?

Anyways for some info on the various PSP hacks you can have a looksie here:

All the European ones should be 2.0, which means no, you can't run homebrew on them. However, there's appearently a system downgrader in the works that'll knock it down to 1.5, in which case you CAN run such apps.

Cool.
I don't know if you can play Snes games on it, I just presumed so. Not that I'm that bothered either way

Like most people, I don't want a PSP for the current wave of games but the extra features.

I might get a PSP when it gets cheaper and have more games, but so far I fail to see the point in getting one


By extra features do you mean PSPr0n? ruroken

There is no current reason to own a PSP apart from unofficial emulation. Unfortunatly, Sony has taken steps to make damn sure there's no reason to buy one at all. Sure, the MP3 and MP4 playback features are pretty cool, but the novelty wears out very quickly.

2.0 is pretty close to being cracked. It'll likely happen within the month.

I pretty much want one for photos and MP3s as it plays games and an ipod doesn't.

I doubt the PSP will go down much in price any time soon as it's amazingly popular and Sony are making quite a big loss on every console sold already.

Dude, I can hook you up with a cheap used PSP if you like. Theres loads of second hand, but mint V1.0 and 1.5 PSPs all over Tokyo. If you aren't bothered about value packs or don't mind them missing things like the memory sticks (fucking useless 32mb...) then they come dead cheap. I want your V.Rares to listen to on the subway... Japan needs to know what real music sounds like D=

What price are we talking about anyway?

I saw an unboxed V1.0 Standard pack today for about £75-80 (it was about 14000 yen) => That cheap enough for you? I need all the DJ damien chronicles so I can use my loud headphones to blast homebrew UK music at everyone on the sardine can trains... I dunno why I suddenly wanted them... maybe after watching SGTV?
Oh, I did find a really shitty art2 flash rip on newgrounds with incorrect lyrics =D You should sue man... =O

Yeah, its been around for quite some time, and hasn't improved with age. Classic mislyrics, tho!

"Motherfucker, rear it is, a sequel to Arr
when you diss me,
you fall, you fucking smarr
but, o-dere's no boundries
N-kniver two I
so DJ's name
has sparkled to the next
and give it one more try
You cocksuckers remember me from
Tournamix 2
The guy who made that DWI
your site would never doo
Just becauase you
you outland me
saw a generic trance shit
you shower awhile
cuz punky dowel is a crazy fucking dick
Well now I'm back to rock your world
My art is fucking blind
While you pussies don't realize
you need it to survive
Trapped (tm) inside a two day sync
the secrets of the world
A wonderful place for science,
art and magic meld.
All you motherfuckahs
wants a chance to wreck the bar
Well fuck you,
and fuck your mom
go back to ooh-la-la.
but if you've got an ounce of cents
and stay up fucking music
life doesn't happen all at once
So why should fucking music?
As the colored arrows fill the screen
you're probably all just thinking
I'm on my way to diss my latest work
and set my spirits sinking
Well, cunt-faced fuckers
here's bad news
I don't give a shit
So take this fucking freeze arrow
AND RAM IT UP YOUR CLIT
All these Shamen One and Two
was show you the meaning of life.
But you don't just throw it back at me
you add a sharper knife
Well, I'm not wasting any time
on shit like you and I fucking tell you why
I don't want you to find happiness
in your life,
I WANT YOU TO ROT AND DIE!
fuck is this? My hog-o-wert
is someday unky stick
this Tournamix can go to hell
and Syrius is a prick
So all you assess can go back
to your faggot little dance
DJ Damien signing out
You motherfucking notz!"

Good stuff Shock
Guess he didn't bother to read the .lrc file, eh?

Wonder if Katamari will be any good on a handheld though?
I guess the touchscreen could bring something interesting to the game, but I can't see how it could be any good on the PSP, other than musical goodness

Maybe that's what Ward meant? ruroken

no touch (TM) boo

further more, it has analog control. Touch > Analog. And it lacks a second screen.

lastly, the DS can't play Super Metroid, which is terrific

I was being totally sarcastic.

My PSP advice to mt 23 year old self is that when you finally do get a PSP, don't go wild and buy all the games you missed. You'll play approximately none of them.

That checks out. This thread is from a mere few months after I got a PSP myself.

That was quickly followed by a psychotic break and my mom being diagnosed with cancer. Stupid PSP. boo
