PPSSPP: A New Free and Open Source PSP Emulator for Android

Who doesn’t like video game emulators? Considering how powerful our computers and mobile phones have become, emulators can often run on them nearly as well as the original devices.

We have featured various game emulators here in the past, and the latest one we’re bringing you today is PPSSPP. The app is a free and open source emulator of Sony’s popular PSP (PlayStation Portable) handheld gaming console for Android devices. Before we get into more details, here is a video of PPSSPP in action:

The developers are working on it actively to add support for more games.

If you’re into mobile gaming and would like to give PPSSPP a shot, join the discussion at the forum thread for more details or visit the PPSSPP website for its download link and the current game and device compatibility list.
