PSP emulator and game are something you can get serious enjoyment out of with your PSP. The PSP is a fantastic system for games, and among its many advantages is that it is quite easy to download and use emulators and games with it. With a bit of advice from here, you could soon be playing Double Dragon and Castlevania on your PSP?
It isn’t quite as straightforward to use PSP emulator and game as you might expect. If you think it is just a case of transferring the game onto a memory card and then running it, it isn’t. There is more to it than that. In order to make any progress with this project, you will need emulator software. This will tell your PSP what it has to do to mimic a different system, and enable it to play the games from the other system. You can pick up this type of software in many different places, but you do have to be very careful as a lot of these sites can be dangerous. There are unscrupulous sites which could have you download a virus, or something which will damage your PSP. Later in the article I will tell you where to find the honest, genuine sites that you can use to safely download the software.
You are unlikely to be able to get a PSP emulator and game from one place. Usually you will need to pick them up from different sites. The game files for an emulator are called a rom, and there is no shortage of ROM sites online. The biggest pitfall you face when downloading PSP emulator and game is a legal one. A lot of the old games are still under copyright, and if you do download the game and have not paid for it, you will be breaking the law. There are manufacturers who have legalized the downloading of their emulators and games by transferring them into the public domain. There is a very useful loophole that you could try and use. Provided you have a legal copy of the game already, there is no law against having backups. This means that your old SNES game that you still own can be played on your PSP, provided your original copy was a legal one!
Just as an aside, when using PSP emulator and game, you may come across the problem of some firmwares not allowing you to use emulators. You can, however, downgrade your PSP firmware, and you are often better off with a slightly older one.
You will often find that the toughest problem with PSP emulator and game is that of finding trustworthy sources. Sites can be put into three broad categories-
Free Sites-The only thing that keeps these sites free is that no one would ever give them money for their services! You will receive a very poor choice of games and emulators, software which doesn’t work, spyware and viruses, painfully slow downloads, and downloads which turn out to be something totally different from what they were supposed to be. Good luck if you use one of these sites, you will need it!
Scam Membership sites-These are sites which pretend to be free, but will grab your credit card details every time you go to download something. I would stay away from these because I don’t really like paying again for a game I had on Genesis in 1992.
Genuine Membership sites- This is the place you need to look at for PSP emulator and game. There IS a charge, but it is a one off charge, and it is not that large. By paying this one time fee, you will have access to all the great condition emulator downloads you could ever wish for. Usually you will get to download as many free PSP games as you can manage. These are the sites I use for my emulator downloads, and I would recommend them. Getting to grips with PSP emulator and game is not quite as easy as many people think, so hopefully these tips will be of great use to you!
