#PSP #RetroGaming #Emulation
Anyone who knows me knows that I love my Retro Gaming. I was brought up in the 16bit Sega Vs Nintendo console war, which only became more brutal with the arrival of the 32 bit Playstation from good ol' Sony. Due mainly to logistics, playing these games on actual hardware becomes a bit of an issue, especially as your collection inevitably increases as the addiction sets in... Setting up the consoles on a suitable monitor, getting them to work and even having the space to set them up in the first place are common problems. But now Emulation offers people a solution, and if you make sure you own an original copy of the game, it's also perfectly legal!
- A Wiki on installing firmware to your PSP console. Having custom firmware not only enables you to install apps that run ROMS, but can also have other benefits, such as taking screenshots or speeding up frame rate etc.
- A brilliant Wiki explaining many of the different emulators of different systems available for your PSP console.
- A good site for PS1 game files. These files have been stripped back so run much better on the PSP. I've played a number of games from here including Crash Bandicoot, Nightmare Creatures and Alundra and had no problems. The site also has ROMS for other systems, too.
- Another good site for downloading ROMS for a multitude of systems.
