Are PSP games playable on PS3?

7 replies 619 views Edited Dec 11, 2012

I noticed there are games for the PSP listed on the Playstation Store.  Does that mean that I can play them on my PS3?  I have a PSP but I would rather play these games on my PS3 since I have pretty much given up on my PSP.  If they are playable, will the aspect ratio of the games be that of a PSP  or will hey fill up my TV screen (16:9)?

If it says PSP it's for the PSP only. If it says PSP/PS3 it can be played on either. I don't think there are any of those other than minis.

Sadly no.  The reason, Sony wants your money.

Only minis can be played on your PS3 and PSP. They aren't "16:9" or "Fit to Screen", they only take up the middle of your screen, and look like crap on my 40".

It has nothing to do with Sony wanting your money. The games already look like crap on the PSP, imagine them blown up on a big screen.

I would put up with a boxed in picture.  It wouldn't bother me so much.  I started with Atari, I can handle blocky picture. :smileyhappy:

Don't forget about PS1 classics, guys :smileywink:.  Like minis, not all, but most are compatible with both systems.

psp on ps3

You know what, if you can download psp games on ps3 you should be able to play them on ps3. Your already paying for most of them any ways, so why not? I hear from a lot of people I know that psp's are obsolete so why not just play them on ps3's?
