Sony’s PlayStation Portable gaming console is one of the premier gaming devices available for the market at this time. Though its competitor, Nintendo DS has always been ahead when it comes to sales figures, the PSP is far more powerful than the Nintendo console. With version 2.70 of the firmware, users were greeted with Flash 6.0 support in the embedded microbrowser. This enabled users to browse some websites that allowed for Flash 6 content or even games.

However, you do not always need to be online to play a Flash game on your PSP there is a very simple way to play it offline on your beloved handheld console.

Requirements

  • Sony PSP with firmware version 2.70 or higher.
  • SWF file of your favourite Flash 6 game (More on how to get the SWF file later).
  • Memory Stick for storing the Flash game.
  • Memory Stick card reader or PSP USB connector.

Procedure

Getting the SWF file:-

  1. Go to any good Flash game website (such as Miniclip or Bored.com) and search for a Flash 6 game.
  2. Once you find one, load it on to your browser’s page.   Browser-Flash
  3. Once it’s loaded, save that webpage somewhere in your hard drive.
  4. Navigate to the place where you have downloaded the page. There will be a folder called webpage.htm_files (where webpageis the name of the webpage that you have downloaded).
  5. Inside this folder, there will be an SWF file this is your game file.

Playing on the PSP:-

  1. Copy the file you downloaded into the memory stick of your PSP. Create a new folder and put it in, or place it anywhere else, but remember the address of the file. For example’s sake, I place the file on X:\FLASH\game.swf, where X is the memory stick’s drive name on the computer. Game_On_MSDuo
  2. Open the PSP’s internet browser and type file:/FLASH/game.swf URL_On_PSP
  3. Your PSP will ask your permission to run a plugin in that page. Agree to it and start playing! Game_On_PSP

Closing Notes

Block Commander and Jelly are two games from PSP Flash Gaming, a site dedicated to providing flash games for PSP users. (Note you need to search a little to find the SWF files since the website urges users to connect to their site over the internet to play the games.) Another wonderful site optimised for the PSP is PSPonme that has a large collection of Flash 6 games.

      I will eventually be doing a post on homebrew for the PSP. This will not involve piracy of any kind as I am against that sort of thing.

    • http://kaushiknarasimhan.net Kaushik Narasimhan

      Which game is this? Do remember that the PSP doesn't have much memory. So if the game doesn't run at all, it must be pretty darn huge for the PSP. :)

    Just wanted to say there are easier ways of getting a .swf file now, i think most "youtube" downloader plugins for firefox will download a .swf file for ya, quick and easy, with no need to download a full webpage/useless stuff.

    Any way to get UMD (files)? I’m just interested b/c when I tried UMD Dumper, one file showed the dumper and the other was corrupted. So I was wondering if there is an easy free way to get UMD games off the web. (UMD – Universal Media Disc) (the disc that you’d put in your psp to play games/videos)
