How to Convert RAR Files to PSP


The Sony PSP (Play Station Portable) has a large hacker community, and these hackers like to be called "homebrew developers." The games that they create are called "homebrew games," and they are free to PSP users who are running the appropriate custom firmware software on their PSPs. Often times, these games come in RAR format, as they are compressed into smaller files. This makes it easier to download the files. The RAR files need to simply be extracted in order to be used on the PSP.
