I’ve manly got this PSP to make emulating the PSP on my phone more legal (owning the emulated console, and ripping my own games), but since I have it I might as well try my hand at hacking it, and see what all it can do.
Why mobile gaming, well when I’m home I generally don’t care to game (other things I’d rather do), but when I’m out it is nice to be able to play a quality games while I wait for stuff and people. And when I am home it is nice to have the option to kick back wherever I am and game.
Anyway on to the PSP.
This is a PSP-1001 (1st gen) and it’s on old software (3.90). The latest version is 6.61 which I won’t be updating to since it could fix the flaw that allows you to push custom software onto it. I believe the method I’ll be using we’ll update it to 6.60 though.
It didn’t come with a charger, so it was a gamble buy, but after rigging this up it looks like it works.
I want to keep track of what I’m spending on this thing, so…
|7-18-19||Memory stick adapter||$5.95|
|7-20-19||Kingdom Harts - Birth by Sleep||$14.99|
Still less then a modern AAA title, and I’ve been having far more fun playing Kingdom Harts than any of my somewhat recent AAA games.
