If you’re a fan of sports – whether it’s playing sports, watching sports or even betting on sports – the chances are you will be interested in playing sports on your console. The PSP – PlayStation Portable, was one of the most convenient ways to play – as you can take the fun with you wherever you go. You can enjoy the thrill of sports such as football, tennis, horse riding and more on some of the best PSP sports games of all time. Here is our pick of the best PSP sports games released for the system.
No list of excellent PSP sports games could be without the addition of a FIFA game – and the one we include here is FIFA 07 – by gaming giant EA Sports. Not only does this game offer the most complete team lists, but it is also super realistic and very playable on PlayStation Portable controls – that can be a little awkward at times.
WWE SmackDown! Vs. Raw
Let’s move over to wrestling now – and the name of the top game here is Smackdown. This game manages to offer an experience very much in line with the standard PlayStation, with great graphics.
Virtual Tennis: World Tour
