Flash Games on The PSP
Recently the 2.7 Firmware for the PSP was just released. It enabled users to play online flash games and watch flash movies. Some may not know of being able to play off-line Flash games. Here’s a quick tutorial on how-to-do it. First update to 2.7 Firmware and then enable Flash under system settings. Then download some flash games from wherever you find. I really enjoyed SCARYJAM8’S PSP FLASH GAME PACK on the Sony PSP forums. Then place the files here: file:/psp/common/flashgame.swf. Via Scaryjam8 of Sony Forums. Pack available here.
