Question Still playable on PSP via PSN store?

I've recently been itching to replay all Core TRs, in particular TR3, but realize I currently have no platform to play it on except a first gen PSP. I need to buy a new battery for my PSP, so before I do that I just want to make sure they're still available (I want to remember that TR1-5 were available on PSP).

There's really scarce information on the PSP versions and if they're still available, so I thought I'd see here if anyone knows if this game is still available to buy on PSP via the PSN Store?

I think the PSP store shut down a few years ago so I doubt they'll still be up

Just set sail in the seven seas, it is not your fault but Sony's. If you feel bad about it buy the Core games in GoG or Steam.

you should be able to download them from a PS3 if you have one? idk if you can download it online thru a browser anymore though. sony said they were taking down the PS3/PSP/PS Vita part of the online store, but i can still access it.

also TR:C isn't available on PSN in NTSC-U territories for some reason

Thanks for all the responses guys! It does seem the games are available to purchase directly on the PSP via the PSN store so I'm giving it a try

And yeah I used to play them on my PS3 but sadly sold that a couple of years ago when I got my PS4. I wish they hadn't removed the PSX classic games compatibility after PS3!

Just wondering but is there any reason why you're looking for a PS version of the game? It usually goes on sale for dirt cheap on Steam so

Maybe they want to play TR in the bus, outside or in the bathroom

I unfortunately have no PC to play on, otherwise I'd definitely go that route (especially for TR3 because I'm not really a fan of the collectible save crystals tbh, haha)

I'll assume you have a good phone so did you try emulation? Is PS1 emulation even a thing on mobile?
