    I'm not a fan of sports games on such a small screen so I say Wipeout Pulse & Syphon Filter Logans Shadow.

    Wipeout is really fun, and I know the first Syphon Filter game for PSP was good, so I'm sure the second one is good too.

    I'd say neither, go for an 8 gig memory stick instead and put all your old PS1, N64, SNES, NES, Sega, Sega CD, Game Gear, Game Boy, Neo Geo, MSX, Lucasarts and DOS games on there.

    I saw two very important words on there...

    Lucasarts and DOS games. How's that possible?!

    Is it possible to play like..... Uhm... Wing Commander and Crusader on my PSP?

    If I could get a second PSP for cheap, I would keep it for only homebrew.

    Hell yes you can get an 8 gig MS for less than two PSP games. They run sixty bucks on thE bay.

    There's a great port of ScummVM, which is a Virtual Machine to run Lucasarts adventure games that use the SCUMM engine (Everything up to Grim Fandango), and they all run great save for Curse of Monkey Island, which runs a bit choppy and The Last Crusade, because there aren't enough buttons for the boxing sequences.

    There's also a port of DOSbox, but don't expect Wing Commander to run yet. It's fairly new, I wouldn't try to play much higher than Alley Cat. I got Skyroads to work, but just barely.

    The ScummVM port is great, thanks to KA mentioning it I just played through The Dig on my PSP.

    If you can't afford the 8 gig, get a 4 gig. I'm currently working with a 2 gig, and it's always packed full.

    Heck no you cant, 99.9% of those are fake, How do I know? I bought like three from good sellers and they are re shelled and formatted 4gig that when in the psp or pc read 8 gig. I would be very careful, I am just glad that I was able to get freakin refunds. If you got one that actually works for that much let me know the seller please.

    Yeah, I had the same thing happen to me on a 2 gig, bought it off eBay and it was a fake with only 1 gig on it, but read a s 2 gig.

    Luckily I got my money back, and I kept the crap card too. The seller wanted it back, but there was no way in hell I was going to pay to ship it back to HK or wherever it came from just so he could rip somebody else off with it.

    Good rule to follow - if they have multiples to sell, they are probably fake, EVEN IF their feedback is good.

    And this is all related to the Pandora deal? I have to look this up. Does it work with Slim?

    Yes using Pandora makes the slim do a special downgrade and then upgrade to the current 3.71 M33-2 there are tons of sites that have tutorials but I personally think the opening the battery method is the least technical but does require a spare battery.

    get the homebrew stuff man, i've got 2 psp's just for that reason. One for the emulaters that came on it and the other for all my regular psp games. And as far as the sports games go on the PSP, madden isn't bad at all, just takes some getting used to

    I don't get why people have 2 PSPs for separate reasons, when a modded one can do both equally well.
