The dream of every cash-strapped PSP gamer is to find downloadable free PSP games. The reason behind this is simple: why pay more per copy of a single game when you can download them for nothing? Games on the PSP are not limited to umd games alone, there are those you can freely download and run in your PSP, provided you have done two things.
First, you have downgraded you firmware to 1.50. The current firmware in your PSP discourages your running homebrew programs on them, or programs that allows non umd games to run on them, like hacked PSP games and homebrew applications. It's sad that Sony doesn't want you to play games they or the game-designing companies won't earn from, but that is not your problem. Once you downgrade your firmware to 1.50, you can run the downloadable free PSP games on numerous websites on the Internet.
Second, you have to find a website that won't give you grief with getting downloadable free PSP games. Just because a site says the downloads are free means the download speed won't drag on to hours and days. That would be frustrating. Even worse, the game you clicked on to download, when the download is finished, might not even be the game you wanted. What is worst, after the download, you find spyware and adware happily living in your PC, courtesy of the website you got your downloadable free PSP games from. But hey, you didn't shell out a single dollar for this. So you don't exactly have the right to complain.
What you need, then, is to find websites that are worth the payment you give them. Some websites offer free games, sure, and if your patience can handle the pop up and banner ads and spyware, it's your time you're burning. If you are going to shell out some money click here, it might as well be well-spent.
Non free websites that offer downloadable free PSP games fall into two categories. First is the kind that charges you for a joining fee and a monthly membership fee. Worse, some even charge per download on top of the other fees. Now you have a right to complain. You want more for your money.
The other kind of website charges you a one-time only joining fee and allows unlimited downloads of their stuff, from downloadable free PSP games, to tips and tactics, tutorials, homebrew applications, game emulators (like for the Game Boy and SNES), and even wallpapers. The download speed is fast, no spyware or adware, and no hidden charges.
