PSP to PS3

11 replies 95 views Edited Feb 6, 2013

I brought Final fanatsy 7 & 8 on my PSP but I want to play it on the ps3, I have copied the save data to the PS3 and downloaded and installed them on it but when I start up the games the save that are copied to it don't show up, and I really don't want to go through all that work on final fantasy 8.

 

So is there a way to get the PS3 to read the PSP saves?

I think that the save information is completely different. I hope I'm wrong but I fear I'm not.

I have looked on the Internet, and I did found that both consoles save in a different formats, and that there is a way to transfer it some how so it would read it but I have done that and it still dose not work.

If there is no way then I just start a new and FF 8 will be the most annoying one.

I may be wrong. But did you create a PS1 "memory card" in the system first? *best guess*

You'll need to purchase the game for the PS3 if you wish to play it on that console.

 

The PSP version is for the PSP & the PS3 verison for the PS3.

Actually, if you buy the PS3 version, it is playable on the PSP.

These are PS1 classics; they are playable on both with only one purchase.


If I remember correctly, you have to go to the virtual PS1 memory card and from there choose to copy from the PSP.  You can copy it in either a PSP (to backup the save) or PS3 (to play it on the PS3) compatible format, but you have to copy it from the right place on the XMB.

 

Edit:  Really, you guys are giving BRIT-KO kudos for the wrong answer? :smileytongue:  He may be correct most of the time, but you shouldn't just assume he is :smileywink:.

Oh, thank you, I was starting to doubt that was possible. Do you know how to make it PS3 format?

My bad JERM, I didn't understand the OP's question, however in my defense it is kind of vaguely worded in my view, it doesn't mention cross-play or anything.

 

As for the Kudos, moble. ne1 pelase feel free to remove.
