The Sony PSP Retro Compilation Library

The Sony PSP Retro Compilation Library

Presented by noiseredux The PSP is no doubt a bit of an emulator powerhouse. But for those of us who are more interested in collecting physical media, it should be noted that the PSP is also a great system to showcase various retro compilations. Considering what a wonderfully cheap handheld it is to collect for (at least domestically), you can actually build up a rather impressive retro library with just a pocket full of spending money and a small stack [...]

Castlevania Remakes Coming To PSP

Yet another set of classic games is coming to the PSP — and this time it may be a very big deal. Two of the most popular games in the Castlevania frachise, the until-now-import-only Castlevania X: Rondo of Blood and series highpoint, Symphony of the Night are both being remade in the upcoming Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles. Both games will receive a graphical upgrade (mainly Rondo of Blood), but the compilation will also include the original version of Dracula [...]

Final Fantasy I & II Coming To PSP

Anyway, this time around, Final Fantasy I and II are once again making their way to a new device. The PSP version might just be the must beautiful (see the new screenshots) and fully-featured. From GamesAreFun… ” Famitsu recently released some new screenshots of the two upcoming remakes of [...]

Crazy Taxi Coming To The PSP

Nothing like fresh and original content on the PSP. (Ok, that’s my poke at the PSP for the day) Anyway, Sega is bring the Crazy Taxi franchise to the PSP. The new Crazy Taxi title is not a direct port or anything new. Instead it is a freshly developed version that implements the maps from both Crazy Taxi and Crazy Taxi 2. What worries me post is that Hitmaker is not behind the development at all, but has Sniper Studios [...]

Except for now instead of having to pay for the limited selection of games, you are now able to play any Playstation ISO (the CD version of a ROM) on your PSP. [...]

Meta Review: Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max For PSP

Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max for the PSP has made it over here to the US and from what I’ve seen in this video clip, it looks impressive. This PSP version also includes Yun, Maki, and Eagle, characters that were added for the GameBoy Advance version of the game — plus Ingrid, who was introduced in Capcom Fighting Evolution (and would have been in the cancelled Capcom Fighting All-Stars). It’s cool to see the new characters in action in the [...]

While it is not made by Nintendo, Super Mario Mini is a beautiful hombrew effort by Arguru. This is by far the best and most commendable homebrew project that I have seen in a long time. From what I have seen, it looks very professional and take full [...]

Gradius Collection on PSP

The Sony PSP is finally getting some good Shmup lovin’ — at least in Japan. No word on a release anywhere else, but Gradius Portable will be a compilation of Gradius I, II, II, IV and Gradius Gaiden. That’s not a bad lineup at all — especially when you consider the formerly PSX-exclusive Gaiden. Options in the portable compilation include saving states by pausing the game, toggling slowdown, playing in widescreen, and restarting from any previous save made. A movie [...]
