Now that Sony has discontinued the PlayStation Portable (PSP), games can no longer be downloaded directly from the PSP through its Storefront.

Read on to discover simple ways to copy games from your PC or PlayStation 3 directly to your PSP.

  1. 1
    Download and install Sony MediaGo. Point your web browser to mediago.sony.com to download and install the software.
    • Make sure your computer can run the software. You'll need a Windows PC running Vista SP2, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, or Windows 10, at least 1 GB of RAM (2 GB recommended), and at least 400 MB of free space on your hard drive. [3]

    • 7
      Copy the game to the PSP. The next step varies depending on where you want the game to be stored.

      • If you want the game to move right to the Memory Stick, right-click on the game and highlight 'Add to,' then select Memory Stick.

Transferring Other Downloaded Games to a Hacked PSP from a PC or Mac
Download Article

  1. 1
    Make sure you have a hacked PSP. A hacked PSP is a PSP that has custom firmware installed. You'll only be able to use this method if you've hacked your PSP. [4]
  2. If you're using a Mac, open Finder and you'll see your PSP under Devices. Double-click on it to open.
  • 5
    Navigate to the Memory Stick folder and then double-click the subfolder called 'ISO.” If you don't see a folder called ISO, press Ctrl+ Shift+N (PC) or Shift+ Cmd+N to create one. Make sure the name of the new folder is in all capital letters.
  • 6
    Drag and drop the game files into the ISO folder. The file extension for your game should either be .ISO or .CSO.
    • You can copy videos from your PS3 or computer the same way, but make sure those files are moved into the Video folder instead of the ISO folder.
    • If you get an error about running out of disk space, you'll need to make room for more games on your Memory Stick.
  • 7
    Click the circle button on your PSP. This will take the device out of USB mode. You can unplug your USB cable.
  • 8
    Open the Games folder on your PSP to find your game. Start your game as you would any other.
    • You may need to restart your PSP to see your game.
    • If you don't see the game listed, it's likely that you don't have a “hacked” PSP3.

    • How do I put downloaded games into the PSP without using a USB port?
      Community Answer
      You can't. You either need a memory stick adapter for your computer or a mini USB cable to plug directly into the PSP.
    • Do we need to be connected to a network to download the game?
      Community Answer
      Whether you want to download it onto your computer or onto the PSP itself, then yes. It's just like any other large game file you download from the internet... you need access to a wifi network.

    This freeware utility lets you use the PC to download PSN content from the comfort of your favourite download manager.

    Nachiket MhatreFeb 05, 2013 09:28:52 IST

    The crazy amount of discounts doled out for AAA titles on PlayStation Store makes digital downloads seem irresistible compared to expensive physical copies. I mean, who wouldn't mind purchasing a game like Bayonetta for Rs 900 off PSN (PlayStation Network) when it still sells for Rs 2,499 in brick-and-mortar stores? Unfortunately, like all good things in life, this too comes with a catch.

    For starters, downloads on PSN are slow and most of them can't be resumed if your Internet connection conks off. It's not uncommon either for an inopportune power cut to ruin an entire 10GB game download. It's not just the speed or unpredictability that's concerning. I find it hard to accept the idea of downloading dozen-odd gigabytes of data through a console—something that isn't really built for durability and rigours of 24/7 downloading. A console has a limited lifespan and I'd rather spend it playing games than just downloading them.

    What if I told you that you could use your laptop or desktop PC to download PSN content, replete with the ability to pause, resume and recover downloads? This witchcraft comes courtesy of CF3B5's PS3.ProxyServer. This nifty little piece of freeware lets you use the PC to download PSN content from the comfort of your favourite download manager. Thereafter, your PS3 can fetch the download off the PC, even as the utility fools the PS3 into believing that it's accessing the download from PSN itself.

    The process may be a bit daunting for a beginner, but that's where this simplified, screenshot-rich guide comes in. Just follow the lucid and easy-to-understand steps and you'll be revelling in PC-assisted PSN download nirvana in no time.

    What You Need

    • A PS3 console
    • A laptop or desktop PC
    • A router or switch connecting the PC to the PS3
    • PS3.ProxyServer utility (click to download)
    • Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 (click to download)
    • Service pack for .NET Framework 1.1 (click to download)

    Installing PS3.ProxyServer
    You absolutely need Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 and its service pack to install PS3.ProxyServer at all. Unfortunately, this makes it impossible to install the utility on newer OS such as Windows 7, which is incompatible with that particular version of .Net Framework. However, we aren't going to quit just yet. All you need to do is follow these steps to get around the problem.

    This may look intimidating, but it's easy and hardly takes any time

    Now you can install Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1 with integrated Service Pack by running 'netfx.msi', which has now created in the 'DotNet' folder. This makes it possible to install the PS3.ProxyServer utility.

    Step 1 – Type 'ipconfig' in the command prompt window. Note down the IPv4 address in the 'Ethernet adapter' section (for wired connections) or 'Wireless adapter' (for wireless connections).

    Note down the IPv4 address

    Step 2 – Run PS3.ProxyServer utility. In the 'Proxy Setting' tab, enter the IPv4 address in the 'IP Address:' field, check the box for 'PS3 Mode' and enter 8080 in the Prot: [sic] field. Don't forget to keep the computer switched on.

    It won't work until you click 'Start'


    Step 3 – Fire up your PS3 and follow the instructions within the image captions. Click to enlarge images.

    In the 'Settings' column, navigate to 'Network Settings'

    Select 'Internet Connection Settings'

    Choose 'Custom'

    Choose the option appropriate to your network setup and keep accepting the subsequent default values

    Select 'Use' in the 'Proxy Server' option

    Enter the IP Address and Port Number identical to the ones entered in Step 2

    This is what you should see if your setup is correct

    Step 4 – With the PS3 routed to the Internet through the PC, it's time to download something. Either initiate a game update or any PSN download and cancel it after a couple of seconds. Note down the exact time you initiated the download.

    Note the exact time of the download to make the next step easier


    Step 5 – Switch to the PC and click on the 'Logs' tab in PS3.ProxyServer. This contains the history of the web links accessed by the PS3. If you haven't navigated away from the download page, your download should be the topmost link. At any rate, you can always use the timestamp and file size to determine the right link. Click on the link to initiate the download on your PC. I recommend using a download manager for speed and security. The best part is that, you can now use the PS3 even as your PC does the downloading.

    Use the timestamp and filesize to determine the right download link

    I recommend using a download manager to fetch the file off PSN

    Download

    Step 6 – This is where we begin the redirection process.

    Right-click on the same download link and select 'Copy Shortcut'

    How To Download Games Directly To Your Ps3 Download

    Once the download is complete, move on to the 'Replace Files' tab and click the 'Add' button

    Step 7 – This brings up two text entry fields and a button.

    Paste the link obtained in Step 6 into the empty text field on the left

    Now click on the button depicted by the arrow, which brings up the 'Open' dialogue box.

    Browse to where you saved the download and select the downloaded file. Click 'Open'

    This is how it should look at the end

    Step 8 – Downloading the file on to the PS3 is as easy as replicating the download process followed in Step 4. However, this time the PS3 fetches the download from the PC and not the Internet, so the download speed is as good as your internal network allows.

    Reinitiate the download as usual to fetch it from the PC

    You know this trick has worked if you can see a redirection log entry, where the download link points to the path of the file downloaded on your PC. What's more, you can create multiple redirections to fetch multiple downloads from your PC. Now pat yourself on the back, because you have not only saved yourself from the agony of slow and unreliable PSN downloads, but this also goes a long way in prolonging your PS3's life.

    The hyperlink pointing to the path on your PC is a sign of successful redirection of the download
