Opening PBP files

Did your computer fail to open a PBP file? We explain what PBP files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PBP files.

What is a PBP file?

The .pbp file extension is used by the Sony PSP portable game play device. The files that contain the .pbp file extension usually contain the firmware update image files that are used to update the PSP device's firmware. The .pbp file extension may also be used for files that install different games onto the PSP device.

In some cases a person will want to modify, "jailbreak" or "hack" the firmware of the gaming device itself. In instances such as these, the file that is used to do accomplish this task may also be saved with the .pbp file suffix.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
