Able to play PSP on TV through PS3?

5 replies 3566 views Edited Aug 30, 2011

Sorry if this has been asked a bunch, I've googled this topic a bit and have seen mixed results (mostly depending on model type). I have an old PSP (1000) and I'm trying to get my PSP to display on my TV via my PS3. I have gotten remote play to work, but that obviously only converts your PS3 screen onto your PSP screen. Is it possible at all to get an older model of the PSP to work on your TV?

No, you'll have to trade up for a newer PSP (PSP-2000 and up) for that feature. PSP-3000 and up allow playing on SDTV and HDTV, while the PSP-2000 is limited to HDTV for games. I personally didn't find playing on the TV very exciting, because the image will be centered on the screen with big black bars around the edges.

Alrighty, thanks for the quick response. The main reason I wanted to do it was because I heard you can use a regular PS3 controller instead of the standard PSP controls. I have not played my PSP in ages, and now I've found that my fingers/thumbs hurt like a b#@%! after only a few minutes of using the small PSP controls.

I guess a secondary question, could I hook a PS3 controller up via a USB cable and use it? lol...

You can use the regular DualShock 3 controller with the PSPgo by pairing it through the PS3. You can't do the same with the older PSPs because they lack Bluetooth. There's no built-in facility to hook up a DualShock 3 via USB unfortunately.

Man, this is why I stopped using my PSP in the first place... Not enough good titles and the controls almost instantly make me feel like I've been playing on the PS3 for 4-5 hours. =((((

Resistance Retribution for the PSP allowed you to use a DS3 while playing the game on a TV. However you need a PSP 2000 or 3000 to do this. This is the only game that allows this feature, there probably would have been more had active PSP development continued...
