River Raid, Galaxian I’m in. Is Defender too much to ask?
He isn't wrong, but he is the type that argues semantics. If you used anything over 32GB on an older PSP (I can't say for PSP Go, because I don't have one) then the XMB menu would cause slowness and headaches. For one very short period I had 2 x 32GB cards in a DUO adapter (64GB total), but immediately downgraded. It is compatible, but can be extremely bad advice for the Phat/Slim PSP's. If you're the kind of person to have many games/folders/emulators to load in a list, I wouldn't. Sometimes, even if I simply pressed the Home button the entire thing would freeze for a while (and that was only 64GB). The higher you go the worse it gets, I wouldn't and cannot recommend anything higher than 32GB (this is from experience). EDIT: As I expected, there are others reporting this all over reddit also. https://www.reddit.com/r/PSP/comments/6spiv1/can_the_psp_support_128gb_memory_stick/ They didn't even have 128GB cards back then you're completely right, In light of this, it seems the hardware wasn't designed to cater for it.
I was interested in the arcade 1up cabs as they were priced very reasonable in the US, but as usual there’s been a huge markup on the uk price. £400 for the uk vs around £230 in the US, even taking into account VAT that’s a joke.
Pandora battery was what I used, but there was no mention of needing one. You did misinterpret my answer by assuming he needed one surely? I will clear that up now, because it was far from it. I could of explained it better, but I didn't need to since the idea here was to present a possible option, but, more importantly - a valid term 'Pandora Battery' for people to Google and find the latest info themselves from the scene. As for the Pandora Battery itself I didn't use it because I had a brick, it can work on non-bricks. There wasn't an exploit for my firmware at the time, so I needed one. I'm not a fan of people deeming something 'redundant' if it can still be used though. I mean each to their own, but you're not only assuming its useless everywhere, but dismissing it completely. Retailers sell Pandora Battery kits, so in reality it's still a perfectly good option to install CFW, just not recommended if you're a techie. Thanks for the updated info on the scene though. This all still doesn't affect me, but perhaps swapping these facts would useful for others. ;)
'phil16' asked "Can't you just run emulators directly on a PSP using custom firmware nowadays?" and the first line of your response was "Yeah, Pandora battery.". Did I misinterpret your answer? If so, why refer to the Pandora battery at all when you answered him as it has nothing to do with his question? It is redundant nowadays unless you have a brick (and even then it only works on the 1000 and some 2000's). I've owned every model of PSP apart from the 'Street (e1000)', and since sold my GO. Still own the 1000, 2000 and 3000. The Phat and Slim PSP's do support larger cards. You just use a cheap Pro Duo to Micro SD adaptor. 256gb works on it too: https://www.reddit.com/r/PSP/comments/7xkhfq/added_a_128gb_micro_sd_card_to_my_psp2000/ With regards to the Go, realistically you're only going to get 32GB out of it because Sony used the M2 cards. There's the size and some voltage issues, hence no adaptors.
