Oh yeah, i've got it. Spend £150 on a PSP and risk bricking it so you can play some home grown DOS version of tetris and a few SNES/GBA games on it. Right, I get it now :roll:
I've got a better idea. Buy a GBA instead of a PSP and play some GBA games on that :whistling:
Alternatively - buy a few PSP games, a good PSP movie encoder, encode some decent sounds and use it for what it is designed for. I just don't understand this homebrew malarky? Is the PSP not adaquate as it is?
It's a handheld photo viewer, movie player, games machine and music player.
I wouldn't mind so much, but homebrew doesn't look worth the hassle anyway. You can't run Windows CE on a PSP using homebrew. You can't run Tomtom Navigator. You can play tetris, and a couple of emus ... hahaha

Please tell me what the point is, as i'm dying to know.

there's some good 3rd party software out there but for the majority of people, enabling homebrew = no copy protection. I"m sure you can read between the lines!

Most people like to play 'back up' games, but there are other apps. Allowing you to customise fonts and menus etc...

The good thing about these back-up games is that they can run from the memory stick; quieter, faster loading than UMD counterpart.

Oh and if you know what you're doing there is little risk of bricking your PSP.

There is some good settings etc added when you use the new 3+ firmware. ive changed the firmware on a few psp's and none bricked. the main cause of bricking is (even tho the guides tell you) ppl dont have their psp on charge, or their battery dies during etc your psp going off during the firmware upgrade is the usual cause

good thing with a psp..its portable..you buy 15 games, its not that portable anymore. back those games up on memory card. 2 or 3 cards and psp...very portable.
