Fast, portable and but limited PSP Playstation Portable emulator
A review of PPSSPP by Sven Sørensen

PPSSPP (PlayStation Portable Simulator Suitable for Playing Portability) is a PSP emulator which can open game files. It is available for several platforms including Android which can be found in the Play Store.

The application features a modern and straightforward interface which provides you access to a file browser to search for games on your system or connected mass storage media. It can open PSP ISO files without much issue.

PPSSPP also provides access to a store which includes free PSP game demos which it can download and then emulate. Also inside the store are homebrew games and applications which can be downloaded and emulated on a Windows system.

The support for PSP ROM files isn't necessarily universal and it can currently load around 800 different games while a smaller number still remain unplayable.

PPSSPP features several different settings which can be configured: Audio, Graphics, System, Controls and Developer are all self-explanatory. Quick access to other options are available from the "Options" menu in the top menu bar.

In the end, PPSSPP is a very good PlayStation Portable emulator which has a ton of features and options for optimal gaming.

PPSSPP features and highlights:
  • Play in HD resolutions and more
  • Play on a tablet for big-screen mobile gaming
  • Customize on-screen touch controls or use an external controller or keyboard
  • Save and restore game state anywhere, anytime
  • Crank up the anisotropic filtering and texture scaling
  • Continue where you left off by transferring saves from your real PSP
