PSP EMULATOR0.7.6 has been released! For Android

Fast and portable

PPSSPP is a PSP emulator written in C++, and translates PSP CPU instructions directly into optimized x86, x64 and ARM machine code, using JIT recompilers (dynarecs).
PPSSPP can thus run on quite low-spec hardware, including stronger ARM-based phones and tablets, as long as there's support for OpenGL ES 2.0.

Increasing compatibility!

PPSSPP is only a few months old and thus not all PSP games are currently playable. However, compatibility is improving very quickly!
Some currently known playable games:
  • Persona 3 Portable
  • Little Big Planet
  • Grand Theft Auto - Liberty City Stories
  • Monster Hunter Freedome Unite
  • God of War - Chains of Olympus
  • Virtua Tennis
  • Final Fantasy Type-0
  • Wipeout Pure and Pulse
  • Saint Seiya
  • Mega Man - Maverick Hunter X

Free & Open Source

PPSSPP is an open source project, licensed under the GPL 2.0 (or later). Anyone is welcome to contribute their improvements to the code, and the hope is that over time this will resolve the compatibility problem, letting us all play the PSP games we wants on the devices of our choice.
PPSSPP is free to download and use.


April 22, 2013: 0.7.6: Major compatibility fixes!

A serious bug was fixed and suddenly a ton of vexing issues just dissappeared! For example, the 3D graphics being black in Persona 3 and the large graphics errors in the two main GTA games. Those are now very playable (on PC, a bit heavy for mobile)! Also, I found a major bug affecting Little Big Planet among others, fixing that as well. The UI now also has multi-language support, it's in Settings->System. All these fixes are enough to motivate a new official release, so here we go - 0.7.6! It may take a few hours before it's visible on Google Play.
