Run Any PS1 Game On A PSP – Hacked Emulator Action!

It turns out the Sony PSP is actually good for something after all! (I kid.) Some ambitious software hackers have cracked Sony’s PS1 emulator for the PSP. Yes, that emulator — the one that is used to play the PS1 games that they sell on their PS3 store. Except for now instead of having to pay for the limited selection of games, you are now able to play any Playstation ISO (the CD version of a ROM) on your PSP.

Of course, there is some legal issues involved, but if you rip your own PSP games you should be OK. Now if only there was a similar method to play your classic games on the Wii’s Virtual Console without having to buy them again.

Supposedly, most every Playstation game runs at full speed with this emulator, but some PAL games have some speed issues at this time.

Update: I’ve found a guide on Digg that should walk you through the process of getting your PS1 games on your PSP

If i recall right, most PSX ISOs are around 300-600mb average. I dont have a psp so i dont know, but what is the highest storage capacity for their memory sticks at present? and also, how much capacity would be probable within the next year or two? if i could hold a dozen games or so, that would definitely pique my interest.

This is just great! I have converted all my psx games using the popstation converter just to try if they worked on my psp, and they all worked great!
The largest SD memory card is 4gig i think, no problem squeezing in a couple of psx games there =)

Does anyone know what PS1 game is that is shown on the PSP screen?

iirc, It’s R-Type Delta 🙂

I have the NTSC-US version of R Type Delta and that screen looks nothing like it. Is it PAL or NTSC-J? I am just curious b/c I am a big shmups fan.
