Is downloading the only way to get games on the GO now?

#1 Posted by Lukeweizer (2509 posts) -

I used to download PS1/ PSP games on my PS3, then transfer them to my GO. But it seems that Sony has removed that function in a PS3 update. Now whenever I connect my PSP GO to my PS3, it doesn't detect it. Is there any other way to get games on a PSP GO that doesn't involve a wireless signal? I didn't set up my wireless to spit out a B signal (which is the only signal the GO likes, right?) and I'm too scared to play around with that stuff.

Doesn't Media Go on PC still work for PSP?

You should probably sell your Go and grab a Vita if you want portable gaming on a Sony device. I can't imagine they'll still be supporting the Go.

@RustySanderke: I do have that disc in my PSP box, but I've never used it. Do I just hook my GO up to my PC with the USB cable and put in the Media GO disc and it acts like an online store?

Update: Doesn't work with Windows 7.

Yeah. I bought it about a year or 2 ago when it was $99. All I want is an easy way to get Monster Hunter Freedom Unite and other PSP and PS1 games since I can't connect it to my PS3 anymore. Damn thing probably isn't even worth selling now anyway.
