Default PSP on PSN question?

So if I download a PSP game on PSN, can I play that off my PS3?

I don't have a PSP and I want to play some certain PSP games.

And I really didn't want to pay to try this out.

If you have the latest firmware update, you can download psp 'minis' and play them on the ps3. I don't think the standard psp games can be played, though....Not yet, anyways -

I doubt we'll see it anytime soon either. They want people to buy both a PS3 and a PSP, not just a PS3. I know I wouldn't have bought a PSP if I had this option.

I like the fact that some games seem to work on both, buy one version and play it on the PS3 or PSP. I don't like that others have dedicated versions which only work on one or the other. It's the same with BC, it's not that it's not possible, it's less profitable.

Are they labeled as PSP mini? Or how do I tell the difference?

Yeah, but I'm not sure how many they have out yet, since it's a relatively new thing. I saw Tetris, but I'm not sure what else they may have. I don't know if the minis have their own dedicated option/label in the store or not. I just saw the Tetris minis on the front page of the store sometime last week when I first logged onto it.

No. Though I doubt you'd ever want to see a psp game running on your TV, the resolution on them is crazy low. I have the video output cable for my psp and it looks like liquid dog shit on my TV. Then again the psp is only 420x272 in resolution.

Pretty much the case and complete crap. Still some people don't have iPhones or iTouches to be able to play them.

And the minis are in a special section of the PSP games section. Just log in to the PSN, choose "what's new" (fastest IMHO) and near the top willl be the PSP logo. Select it and the first logo should be "mini's". Everything there will be playable on your PS3, but after reading the Wikipedia site I think you need to have firmware 3.15 installed. 3.15 is an optional install btw.
