The Sony Play Station Portable (PSP) has encouraged avid gamers to find ways to save up on money by downloading PSP game iso’s, instead of buying the PSP game titles. One way these games are distributed is through PSP game torrents on torrent sites. But are the games that come from these torrent sites any good compared to other websites that provide access to their database of PSP games?
There are three things to consider here. First, cost. Are the torrent files available for free download? Second, is the download speed fast? Third, is the game selection wider than other websites that allow direct download? Fourth, what about spyware and adware? Fifth, what about corrupt files?
One of the more popular torrent protocols used is BitTorrent, and this protocol is much better than peer-to-peer transfer of files because it’s faster. BitTorrent enables fast downloads of huge files, including PSP game torrent files, using only minimum Internet bandwidth. It costs nothing to use, has no spyware or popup advertising. You can download and install an assortment of BitTorrent clients to use, all of them for free.
BitTorrent increases transfer speeds by gathering bits of the file you wanted and downloads them, the pieces, all at the same time from numerous PC’s owned by people who already have the file you want. This makes downloads of PSP game torrents, among other things, very fast.
Websites like Mininova and Meganova are torrent sites that offer free access to their database of torrents on numerous files, from movies to games to whatever.
So, to answer the five questions. First, yes, the torrent files are free for download so long as you have installed the equally free BitTorrent client. Compared to commercial websites that offer PSP downloads, access to torrent websites costs nothing. Second, yes, the download speed is usually fast. Third, the game selection is affected by how many torrent files are made available be participating people who serve as seeds, or download sources. This means you should keep searching for torrent sites where they have more PSP games. Forth, usually no spyware or adware. When the download is finished, you can usually virus-scan the downloaded file for malware, before running the file. Fifth, as for bad or corrupt files, you can always check the comment thread on the file you are to download for responses and comments. Some of them will point out if the file is corrupt, or incomplete, or if a better one is up in another torrent somewhere.
There you go, a comparison of PSP game torrents compared to websites that offer download of PSP stuff. Hope this helps.
