I finally took the plunge and got a PSP-3001 to compliment my PS3. I already had one PS1 classic (Silent Hill) and I copied that over and it seems to be working fine.
I was thinking now about getting Resident Evil 2 and 3 from the PSN store, because I only had those for my Dreamcast which broke. Has anybody played either/both of those on their PSP's. How well does it work? I doubt speed is any kind of issue, the PSP is more powerful than the PS1 I bet. Any control issues that would ruin the experience?
It's perfect for PSP. The controls are very similar to Silent Hill, press R to aim and X to shoot. One thing I should note is that the analog control on PSP doesn't work like it does on the Dual Shock controller(PS1 to PS3), so to move you have to use the D-pad. I have no problem with the D-pad, in fact, I rather use the D-pad instead of analog for tank control games like RE, Silent Hill and Dino Crisis.
One quick question though, you're getting RE2 and RE3, why not RE1 as well?
