Do the Capcom and Namco collections have anything that is absent from versions on other platforms?

Most of the arcade games that appear in the PSP Capcom collections were in the PS2 & Xbox ports of them, while the PSP Namco collection have a few unique arcade games along with arrangement versions of some of the games that were pretty fun.

How is the Death Jr series? I wanted to play that back in the day too.

They're pretty good 3D platformers, I remember having fun playing them back in the day.

If you are going the CFW route, then I'd definitely recommend the POPS Loader, since the PSP has built-in software for playing PSX games. In particular, I'd recommend Tales of Phantasia's fan translation by Phantasian Productions.
Cool, I'm gonna set it up now, any idea how the PSP handles the two missing trigger buttons? or does it just not?

I'll check those out then once I knock out FFT, that game is kicking my ass right now lol.
I expected FFT Advance difficulty and streamlining, but what I got was essentially Tactics Ogre with more lenient perma-death and less guilt tripping when you lose a unit.

I believe they can be mapped to the analog stick.

Acht, I keep forgetting about Every Extend Extra.  The original game is freeware for Windows, and apparently there's a sequel for the X360 that is a further improvement.
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

I also just found out that the best version of Brandish is on the PSP too.

I also found a copy of Darkstalkers at the bargain store, but I didn't pick it up because finding willing DS challengers is like finding water in a desert.

If you like rhythm games, I recommend the Korean series DJMAX. It's similar to Beatmania IIDX and there's some really catchy tunes! Some games are import only, but if you're a veteran rhythm gamer I'd go for DJMAX Black Square.

How does that hold up to the PS3 versions? I played God of War 1&2 but never made it as far as 3&4
