PPSSPP is a PSP emulator for Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android, BlackBerry 10 and Symbian with free and open-source creased focus on speed and portability. This software can run your PSP games on your PC in full HD resolution, and play them on Android too. This software can even upscale textures that would otherwise be too blurry as they were made for the small screen of the original PSP. Even on modern Android phones and tablets, you can often run at double the original resolution.
PPSSPP is the first PSP emulator for Android (and other mobile platforms), and also runs faster than any other on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. This software is in its early stages and game compatibility is thus still somewhat spotty.
A computer build can be pretty powerful and can even support the full functionality of consoles and games through emulators. Moreover, some consoles also come as debuggers to aid developers in finding and fixing bugs. For instance, this software is a powerful PlayStation Portable emulator which also offers an impressive library of games and demos.
- Play in HD resolution.
- Support for big-screen mobile gaming.
- Customize on-screen touch controls or use an external controller or keyboard.
- Save and restore game state anywhere, anytime.
- Support for anisotropic filtering and texture scaling.
- Save game transfer support.
Accepts games from PSN and under ISO formats
- The application fires up pretty quickly and is ready to go without additional configurations. It’s both a fully-functional emulator and debugger, allowing you to simply enjoy your PSP games on the desktop, but also to take a shot at finding and fixing bugs in your own projects and products.
- On the bright side of things, you can play all the PSP games you own and can easily transfer them to your computer. Input can come under the form of an ISO or CSO format, so it’s quite easy to bundle the game in a supported ISO image yourself. Games downloaded from the PSN onto your PSP device can simply be copied and launched without any configurations.
Debugging tools and control configuration
- As mentioned, the application isn’t all just about playing games and having fun. The debug menu offers a variety of tools to help out, such as a disassembly utility, GE debugger, or memory view. You can also save and load map and SYM files, show debug statistics, take snapshots, and more.
- In case you’re not really fond of the default overall configuration, you can dive in the game settings menu. Here, nearly all aspects of the emulator and its behavior are put at your disposal, such as control mapping, display layout editor, rendering, hardware acceleration, texture scaling, filtering, frames kipping, rendering resolution, and a lot more.
- Controls can be altered to your advantage. External controllers are supported, and you can map and test out all buttons, including analog sticks. There’s support for touch-enabled devices, with the possibility to manually configure the touch layout and make it visible on-screen for better guidance.
