See Kingdom Hearts Running On A PSPgo

The fact you can’t buy Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep on the PSPgo highlights one of the bigger problems with Sony’s struggling handheld. It also helps explain why piracy is so rampant on the portable device.

This clip, from a device that is able to run copied games on the handheld, shows what PSPgo and/or series fans have so far been denied: Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep running on a PSPgo.

It’s a sad day when pirates and homebrew aficionados are able to so easily get a game running that neither Square Enix, the game’s publisher, nor Sony, the PSPgo’s platform holder, seemed willing or able to accomplish.

The irony isn’t lost on us, either, that a video showing a program that will mostly be used for piracy may at the same time convince many people to hang onto their PSPgos.

  • The instant i discovered modified firmware, i didn’t buy any games for teh psp any more. You had a 4Gb memory stick, and you could sometimes fit 10 games on, wihout having to carry around 10 nit-so-little mini CD things

  • I’m still trying to figure out how this is current news. A pspgo with 5.03 OFW can simply run the HEN exploit and boot into Gen-C CFW to play this game. This was the case in septermber for the US/EUR release and I’m fairly certain it would have worked for the japanese version in January.

    tl;dr PSPgo still poorly supported. Needs CFW.
