Ever wonder how to put PC games on a PSP hand-held console? Putting flash games on your Sony handheld console is a simple procedure.. A PSP cannot run the latest PC shooters, nor should you expect the complexity of games like Torchlight or Dragon Age. You do not even need special firmware for your PSP to accomplish this. The browser that comes with the system contains Java and flash support.
