    if you have a big enough memory stick and dont mind loading games back and forth on it , why do people compress iso to cso,
    to get more games on stick?

    That's the only reason. You cant assume that everyone has a 2gb Memory card so for people with 1gb CSOs are needed for some of the bigger games.....but personally I hate 'em cos the compression often makes games slow and laggy. Give me an ISO any day.... :)

    cso are good if you only have a small memory stick. files 500mb or less compressed seem to run fine but above that they seem to run a bit slugish so i only compress files under 500mb.

    i also got a genuine 2gb for only £10
