I've mentioned, more then once, that I LOVE the PSP for its ability to be played via "the big screen". However, I feel I have now maximized the potential of the PSP's AV-out capability and wanted to share it with you fine folk for whomever else shares my passion to play some of these classic RPG's in full screen HD glory.
First off, I chose the PSP GO model for one primary reason and that is PS3 Dualshock syncing. That is, you can play using the dualshock 3 controller instead of having to ever tough the PSP with a mess of wires.
Pictured is how I have it set up. You'll notice I use a cradle to hold and charge the PSPGO whilst gaming. This is important because it allows me to charge the system constantly while playing, thus battery life is a non issue.
FYI the cradle is only 3 dollars used at gamestop right now if you can find one.
That handy device is a GODSEND. It upscales the tiny sketchy psp screen that is normally displayed on the TV to smooth 720p WITHOUT slowdown, audio hiccups or ANY percievable degradation in gameplay/experience. I was real skeptical about this piece of equipment until I used it
Finally the result.
See (a bad picture) of FFIV The After Years being played in HD, filling my WHOLE SCREEN WITHOUT A ZOOM FUNCTION!!
What you are essentially getting here is a set-up that turns your PSP into a fully functional home console. I know this may not excite some, but for me this set-up is pretty freakin' glorious.
