PLAY STATION PORTABLE EMULATORS FOR ANDROID
There are various PSP Emulator projects, each one of them has it’s own particular features. The core (root) project is PPSSPP, most emulators are currently based on it’s open source, but PPSSPP itself is a complex community project created originally in cooperation with JPCSP which has much deeper story. JPCSP itself hasn’t got support for Android platform (end even no more supported nowdays), but PPSSPP and all subsequent projects have complete Android support. PPSSPP forks are mostly designed only to be Android PSP Emulators. In tribute to the JPCSP developers we still mention it in this Emulator list.
The pioneer in the PSP Emulation area, JPCSP was written in Java and originally was developed for PC, Unix and Mac. It was the origin of whole PSP emulation era. Using Java was useful for debug, but caused a lot of compatibility issues. Due to many reasons, in fact it’s development was abandoned, but gave a chance for PPSSPP and other great emulation projects.
An ingenious project created by Henrick Rydgard, one of legendary Dolphin Wii Emulator developers. With huge contributions of open source community, PPSSPP was originally based on JPCSP, and now it is the core mainstream PSP emulation project. It is available for various platforms including PC, Android, iOS (unofficially), Mac, Unix. PPSSPP has various forks including specific ones for Android.
