How to buy PSN things for the PSP?

This sounds like a silly question, but if I don't ask, I won't know.

My girlfriend is staying at my house over the weekend, and she's brought her PSP with her. As we were looking on the PSP store on the PSN (Via the PS3), she saw a game she was very interested in buying. How would we go about actually doing this? Would it be as simple as buying the game on the PS3, then just usb modeing the game over?

Cheers in advance

it's really weird how that works. from what i can remember, you buy the PSP game, and then you install it on your PS3 or something like that, and then from there you can transfer it to your PSP.  
 
so yea, it's pretty much buying it on the PS3 and usb transfer, but it installs on your hard drive, i guess for security reasons. that's what i remember, anyway. i haven't done something with a PS3 to PSP transfer in like, three years but it should be pretty simple.

That's weird. I'll see if I can pull anything off the PS website. Cheers though

I thought that the PSP could interface wirelessly with the PS3.  Me wrong?

You can just buy it on the PSP.
