Finding PSP Game Demo Downloads

By: Sandra Stammberger

If you have a PSP, then you probably want to spend some time with different games because you don't want to keep playing just one game over and over till you practically know what's going to happen next. You'll want to go out and buy new games for your PSP, but of course, you want to know if it's any good, and if it's going to be fun to play. That way, you can check a game with a try it and see it reality test. If it's good, then you can confirm that it's going to be a good game to buy. If not, then you won't waste money buying a game that you'll regret later on.Where can you download PSP demo games?

If you want to try out the latest and greatest offerings from game developers, you can download a demo version for your PSP on the game developer site. They typically have these ready for players to try out so that they can see if they'd like to buy it. As well as that, the Sony PSP website can clue you in on the latest games that are coming out from different developers.

The best part about downloading games straight from the developer or Sony's site is that you can be sure that the game you're downloading will be free from viruses or Trojans, which can be embedded in the game files. It won't necessarily crash your PSP if ever you download from somewhere else, but your PC will be put in danger of being infected by a virus of some sorts.

Compatibility with PSP units

Not all PSPs are created equal. There are PSP units out that are running on the early 1.5 version of Sony's operating system. However, if you have a PSP that is running on later versions of the Sony Operating system software, you can't run PSP game demo downloads by downloading them straight from the net and copying the files onto your memory stick.

This is because only the 1.5 version has the ability to run games from the memory stick. To get around this, you'll have to downgrade your PSP's software to the 1.5 version from the later version that you have so that you can run game demo downloads. You can find out how you can go about this process on your own through PSP owner forums, where they can teach you how to hack your PSP and downgrade it to lower firmware.

After you downgrade your PSP unit so that you can run games from the memory stick, you can just upload your newly downloaded game demos onto the memory so you can run them. If you're not sure of the steps on how to do this, you can also find out the process of uploading a game through PSP owner forums.

Game demo downloads for the PSP are a great way of finding out if a newly released game really has the goods to back up whatever hype is surrounding it. And that way as well you can make sure that you'll be enjoying every bit of your money when you go out to buy a new game. With UMD games being so expensive and all, you'll be pleased to know ahead of time that you won't regret your new game purchase.
