Does anyone care Sony may remove PSP games from the store next month? I certainly do, even if I'm not sure that's actually going to happen, since the last blog post they did about it isn't very clear.|
Anyway, I was thinking whether there were any games there that I'd still want to buy so, as apparently I have nothing better to do and am more than a little autistic, I went through the entire store (and it was a lot of work) and made a list and published it here: https://byebyepspgames.com
Some really interesting stuff there.

In case Sony removes PSP games from the store in July...
I thought you already couldn't buy them anymore?
Definitely a couple of PSP titles Iíd still be tempted with. Thanks for this - Iíll have a hunt through. Still play PSP games more than Vita ones on the Vita:
currently loaded on my Vita:
Patapon 2 & 3
Valkyria Chronicles 2
Persona 3 Portable
Cladun 1 & 2
Trails in the Sky

Iím glad the Vita games got a reprieve but tbh the PSP is so old, I donít think we can really complain about the closure of the digital store. As long as previously bought and owned games can still be downloaded, thatís fine by me.
I do still play my Vita, but being honest, I havenít actually bought anything for it since they dropped it from PS+.
Yeah, I'm not complaining about the closure of the PSP store, it's about time really. It's great they'll remain available to download, too.

@dominalien Thanks for this. I may try to make some time this weekend in between the football to see if there's anything I want. I recently bought a PS3 and just got it back with a 1TB hard drive fitted, so I guess now's a good time to get those games that can only be bought via a PS3. I only have a US PSN login, so I'll be checking the US store.

I couldn't find Trails in the Sky when searching on my Vita a couple of months ago which was annoying as I own it, bah.
Ah, Riviera! That was a peculiar game.
I have Trails from the EU store, it must have been removed at some point. Luckily still available in the US.
I'm glad someone finds the list useful.
If you are interested in that, you'd better avoid the euro version of Riviera. It has no Japanese audio track. Get it from the USA store instead.
Riviera isn't on either store as far as I can see. Though it may conceivably be available in the US from the Vita, this is something I haven't checked as I haven't reset my Vita for the US. I'll reset my PSTV later today and see if it comes up with something interesting.

Iím fairly sure that Riviera is the only Sting game we got in the UK for the PSP. US got Yggdra Union and Knights in the Nightmare too. Never played either of those.

Going through the list, I got reminded how the Gangs of London tv series from last year actually started off life as a PSP game. Or at least the IP did...
Knights in the Nightmare is much better played on the DS anyway, although I realize finding a copy nowadays would be much more expensive.
I'm never gonna sell my limited edition, for sure.
