The PSP's Game Sharing feature allows you and a friend to play a single UMD disc co-cooperatively. There are several games that support this feature, but figuring out how to actually enable game sharing can interrupt your gaming plans. Fortunately, the actual process for enabling game sharing is actually quite easy, and once you learn it you'll have no problem playing and sharing video games on your PSP.

Enable your PSP's wireless mode. Do this by flipping the switch on the side of the PSP into the "on" position. This will allow Wi-Fi transmission.

Load the game that you want to share. Simply put the game in the UMD slot, and select it from the "Games" menu on the cross media bar.

Go to the game sharing option and begin broadcasting data from your PSP. This is generally located in the "Multiplayer" section of the game, but if you are unsure as to where this option is located, check your game's manual.

On the other PSP go to the game sharing option in the "Games" area of the cross media bar and put it in game sharing mode. It should detect the other PSP's broadcast of the game, and will begin downloading the title momentarily. Once the download has finished you will be able to play the game together.


Games with Game Sharing capability include: Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Tekken: Dark Resurrection SOCOM: US Navy Seals Fireteam Bravo 2 Buzz: Master Quiz


The game sharing data will automatically be deleted after you turn the PSP off.
