View Full Version : Will there ever be a psp emulator?

I was curious to see if you guys think there will ever be a psp emu for pc? The only one pspe is crap and only runs very basic homebrew. It would be nice to see an emu with flash emulation for devs to test. Even if it doesnt run isos, homebrew would be nice and be a good way to test.

I figure there will be.. many, many years from now. ^_^ At least if we're talking about anything that's going to be remotely decent and act like a PSP. As it stands, they're still working on ironing out GBA emulation, which is a system that came out quite awhile ago. I have no doubt that as computers get better, so will emulation of the PSP, and I'm sure that someday in the distant future, they'll have PSP games running full speed on the PC just like the SNES. But by that time, it won't be a practical alternative to the actual PSP, since the PSP won't really be used anymore. The problem is, it's really complex, and a very powerful system.

Good points. It is too bad though, as it would really help devs.

Look at the ds emus. Although they arent great, at least there are quite a few actually being worked on.

Well if the existing psp emulator could load dev hook I dont see why a fully working emu might not appear.Don't know if it can load devhook though.

It barely loads tetris, I HIGHLY, HIGHLY doubt it loads devhook.

Like I said, you could always make an xmb/homebrew emulator with no iso support for devs to develop and test.
