Does anyone know where the PS3 stores the downloaded PSN games (folder location on the hdd)?
I want to FTP in and copy some stuff to my PC.

I think PSN games are stored in hdd0:\game\
Inside that folder there should be a bunch of other folders, for example, NPUB00032. All of those folders would contain your PSN games. :)

Had a look. Nothing in there but I can see lots of PSP minis in the package manager of the XMB, so they should be somewhere.

Hmm, my ps3 files manager shows that same location for installed data. (albeit, it appears at X:/dev_hdd0/game/ from within the ps3)
If its not there, you don't have anything installed.

Ahs, you didn't say uninstalled things before. Packages, hmm, never checked where those go before, I always installed them right away.
Try somewhere in your user folder for those. X:/dev_hdd0/home/########/ (and also X:/dev_hdd0/home/########/exdata/)

Note: ######## is an 8 digit number, the lowest of which being 00000001, that represents your userid on the ps3. You'll have to keep going up one number at a time till you find the right one if you've ever had multiple users on your system, as userid numbers never get recycled.

Edit: Hmm, after a quick glance, another couple spots that sounds possible are, X:/dev_hdd0/tmp/downloader/ and X:/dev_hdd0/tmp/np_pkg/

Yes, I know my profile is 00000003 and the games are not installed (can't be since they're PSP games) but oddly enough still could not find them.
I have been pretty much into every directory one by one.

I know the game is on the PS3 as my PSP and Vita can both see it.

After some googling it's dev_hdd0/vsh/task/00000001. 00000001 could be any number depending on how many thing's you've downloaded so I'm assuming that's what the 00000003 is for you?...

So, try checking dev_hdd0/vsh/task/00000003 and seeing if the file is there. There'll be a few files in there but the only file you'll need will be, as expected, the .pkg file.

Just tried that, only 3 files there:

d0.pdb
d1.pdb
f0.pdb

all around 97 bytes so it's not them.

I did find something in hdd0/vsh/game_pkg/80000008 that has files:

d0.pdb
d1.pdb
ICON_FILE
VBNFnffhkfdhdjhgsjfbkx.pkg which is around 28mb (name is actually different but its encoded like that)

so it must be this
Thanks for the tip corey :)
