Finally, below is how to launch PSN games via multiMAN for those interested from sealhealy (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-2280/):

Launch PSN Games from multiMAN like any other PS3 backup:

1. Install your PSN package game like you normally would
2. In multiman go into file manager and navigate to /dev_hdd0/game
3. Find the corresponding game folder to the game you just installed eg. 'Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD' = NPEB00527
4. Copy this folder to your USB game folder /dev_usb000/GAMES
5. Now rename the copied folder to something meaningful eg./dev_usb000/GAMES/NPEB00527 becomes /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527
6. Inside the [Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527 folder create a new folder called PS3_GAME eg. /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/PS3_GAME
7. Now move all files inside /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/ into the PS3_GAME folder.
8. Go back to your Game list and refresh it, the new game will appear
9. Mount the game
10. When kicked back to XMB start the game from App_home not the disc icon

Notes:

  • You don't always need to copy all files sometimes just creating the file structure and copying the eboot.bin and param.sfo is enough.
  • I also think the reverse maybe true for some other games that don't work copying only eboot.bin eg. leave behind only eboot.bin param.sfo TROPDIR in the /dev_hdd0/game folder.
  • Creating a shadow copy of the USRDIR may also work? Nope

I would like to point out that I've gotten some games to run this way.

If you have a PSX2USB adapter (they used to sell these at radioshack, afaik they are now unattainable), you can use a PS2 controller on the ps3. (The ps3 sees the controller, and the adapter supports dualshock 2.)

The games I tried were:
Odin Sphere (Slowdown, graphical glitches)
Silent Hill 2 (Slowdown)
DDR MAX (Major Slowdown)
DDR MAX2 (Major Slowdown)

Once I get out of class today, I will test more games.

that would be awesome. if they could get a psp emu working, there's a few games on that i'd like to play, namely thug2 remix (if you can't tell, i'm a tony hawk fan)

Any chance of emulating PSP, like the Cobra dongle? or is that a totally different thing/method? Sadly Cobra doesn't support the new PSP games, only old ones, I wonder if this could be improved with a more "open-source" project.

if you can do this without FSM i'd definitely try it! I think somehow, someone has to merge old and new together, the old to force it to play and the new for better compatibility. I will one day play thps3 to thaw on ps2... thps3 and 4 on psx/gba bite

I mean, thps4 on psx is surprisingly playable for it being a game ported to psx.
