Step 1: The obvious

Picture of The obvious
Games- The tip for getting games, especially for PSP, is what you think you would play over and over and over again. The replay value increases if it has online capability. My favorites games for the PSP are SOCOM: Navy Seals Fireteam Bravo 2, Daxter, Ratchet and Clank size matters, Star Wars Battlefront II, Midnight club, and Either Grand Theft Autos.

Video- Having videos on your PSP really makes a difference on road trips. There are free programs on the Internet for converting videos into PSP forms, for example Orbit .

Music- Unless you have a Ipod, the PSP is also good for just listening to music.

Pictures- Showing pictures on your PSP to your friends, and you can also set it as your background.

Internet- The PSP internet is fun when you don't want to carry your laptop around. It can't support large sums flash, so no videos, no games, no porn (unless its pictures:)

you know how to do that but you dont know how to take actual screen shots on your computer? you know that little button on your keyboard that says print screen or prt scrn? and the paste button in paint or aany photo editing software.
srry i just find it annoying that some people dont know how to do that or rotate an image on their computer. its simple little things that people overlook.

genious! I'll definitely try this out!:) I love my psp, with your tips I know how to get the most out of it!:)

Free TV
oye forgot tht 1
lol actually go to on your psps web browser and you can play or download the games free. theres other sites on their main site too ( but a few are kinda iffy you can get themes, vids, and flash games on there. but uf that vid downloader doesnt work. then theres another site. but i forget what it is right now. i might get back with you on that part.
What connection cord do you need? Will it download any game? Does it work for macbooks?
My PC has a MS pro duo reader so I don't need a cable; check if yours has one.
oh yeah get a good one. DON'T buy cheap one or they might break! buy one thats about $10 to $12 or just a bit lower like $8 .REMEMBER DO NOT be cheap on these!
u use a link cable just go buy it from your nearest game stores if they don't have it go to a place where people sell computers,parts and stuff they should have it. well idont know how does that USB hole looks like on a PSP. just in case bring your PSP with you.
The connection cord is simply a usb to miniusb cable,most of the time people have a few lying around And any computer that can read data from the psp will work

When I say connection cord, I mean a USB cord that plugs into your computer.
I know that already but where do you get one for cheap $.
The connection cord is a mini usb. if u have a computer, you should have one of these laying around. If not u can get one in ANY electronics store for about 50 cents

Nice and straight foward, easy to follow. Only thing is, i think you should have said on step 5 that it makes your psp "more fun" not funner. One up mate.

ahhh...the fact that American English is constantly changing and become more and more messed up, we tend to look at true English as perfect,polite and proper of a fact, we basically speek the same thing, its just that we are more of a "melting pot" with multiple races that make up their own slang and that adds to the screwines of our language...and the fact that all Brits say mate isnt that big of a fact, Australians say it b/c they descend from mostly British decent....So Wi DoNtt u R35p3ct teh pplz wh0 m4d3 ur langwidge...BTW im American....
