      You can transfer everything you have in the demo to the full version.

      The only place I know of is the PSN store. I downloaded it on my PS3, then transferred it to my PSP. If you have a PS3 do that, if not then I don't know what to tell you.

      Ok what you need to do is 1 of 2 things if you psp has the latest firm ware up date then you can access the PlayStation store from there assuming you have an account for it.Then under the psp demo section should be psu portable. If not you will have to go to the PlayStation store on the pc and download it from there directly to your psp. Again that is if you have a PlayStation account set up, if not then create one so you can download it! Of course you can do this from the PS3 as well like HammerHeart said. Well good luck! heres the link (http://www.us.playstation.com/PSN/mediamanager)

      Is it true you can connect PSP to the PC and PS2 versions to transfer characters?
      Is PSP even that great? It's just PSU minus online play right? That's all I seemed to notice when I played the Japanese demo around the time of it's release. :/
      I have PSZ and I'm already kinda bored. >_> Probably because I don't understand a word of it.

      The demo keeps on timing out on download from the PSN store (via PSP)! How blood curdingly irritating!

      As far as I know, you can't transfer any characters between PC/PS2 to PSP- I believe they took this out for the English version.
      Also, It's only ad hoc- You can play with other people with Ad-hoc party but you need a PS3 to do this- You can download it through the Japanese PSN store.
      Finally, I had no problems downloading it directly to my PSP but you need to make sure you have about 550 MB of free space on your Memory Stick becuase it needs that much to download AND install it.

      It had a level cap and everything but by the time the actual game came out, I'd played the demo so much and save so much money I had no problems buying whatever I wanted. Can't wait to have a head start on this game.

      How do I keep playing the demo? It only let me go through the 2 missions and won't let me do anything else.

      No, that's not something you can do in this game.

      You can only do Story Mode once. Then you have to go to Multi Mode (press the right arrow button on the Story Mode screen) and you can do a few select missions there.
