You can download the Sony app here or check out their store offerings here.

For those wondering, I tested the download procedure on my custom firmware PSP and it was a no-go. The app told me I needed to upgrade. :)

Um. Where's the grand royal treatment for this? People have been demanding this for ages and Sony isn't a making a huge media deal out of this? No wonder they suck.

oh and time for Spyro!

Ok, I figured out what my problem was. My PSP was on 3.40 - OE when I first tested the software. I upgraded to 3.71 M33-4 and I was able to download a free theme.

The PSN DRM rules are much more flexible than Live. If I recall correctly, you are allowed to re-download the game up to 5 times across 5 different consoles (i.e. PS3 and PSP). The download rules are listed at the bottom of each download page. At least, the ones I've seen anyway.

Anyone know how much space these games usually take up?

Well, PS1 games couldn't be more than 700MB (unless they are multi-disc games) and the Socom Demo I downloaded was about 400MB...

From what I've seen, the PSOne games run between 100-400 MB. I think my biggest one at the moment is Real Bout Fatal Fury - Dominated Mind which is only large because it has a fair number of videos for a fighting game.

You can get them on PS3 and then transfer them to your PSP. I haven't heard of anyone going through the JP PSN store on their PSP and downloading them directly.

If you delate your history, it forgets the country (At least with IE) and I've tried going into the Japenese store, but it's obvisiosly in the Kanji or whatever it's called. You could try downloading them I guess, I'm not sure it'd work, you could try a demo first.

The Japanese offerings really aren't that special. Titles of note are "R-Types", "Popolocrois", "Echo Night" and "Biohazard: Director's Cut". Most of the others are on the U.S. marketplace.

Did you download the official 3.72 firmware? If so, I don't know what to tell you. It should work.

yeah! I go to update my PSP and I download whatever the current is. It DOES say 3.72. It's then when I go to load the installer..I get that message "Game cannot be started (DADADADA)" <---- ?!

When I download the update. I go to Game => Memory Stick => PSP Update ver 3.72
When I run that, that's when I get that weird "Game can not be started (DADADADA)" thing..:lol:

Ah! It's probably because you are running the custom firmware. Just upgrade to the latest custom firmware (3.71 M33) with the latest update (-4) and you should be good to go. I can't tell you how to do that of course (violates the ToS) but there are plenty of sites out there that have the information you'll need.

Are the PS1 games converted to run in wide screen? ( It seems very unlikely, but thought I would ask? I am guessing that they stretch, or run with black bars. )

There are a couple settings available but by default they run with black borders. I think they can be stretched but then the resolution takes a hit. At the moment I have a couple of the JP PS store games on my PSP and I just leave them with the borders, otherwise they get blurry.
