    I know the PSN is down and this could all change but If I buy a PS1 game on a ps3 can I also download it on my PSP or do you have to pay for it twice to get it on both?

    Also I have read up and understand how the PS2 memory card transfer thing works, but I would like to know if it works with downloaded titles just as good as a physical PS2 disk and will it work with downloaded PS2 titles on a NON-backward compatible PS3?

    the ps3 and psp will only play what's made for them to play from psn...and unless your psp is currently activated to even play psn game titles, you'll be wasting your time...to activate it, when psn returns, go to either your ps3 or psp under account management to handle all that

    Huh? Why would it be a waist of time? and I'm referring to PS1 games that are available to download for both Parasite EVE, Spyro ect.

    Most PS1 games are not compatible with PS3.

    Yep, some games are made for PSP/PS3/Vita now too. Pay for it once, get it on 3 platforms.
