How to Play Sony PlayStation Portable Games on Android

Notwithstanding the fact that the modern game industry does its best to please avid gamers with exciting, fun games that stun with exceptional graphics, realistic characters, and conspicuous settings, we still cannot forget retro games. It’s not a mere nostalgia that prompts us into scouring the Internet for retro titles that once kept us glued to a screen and a joystick, of course. Recently, I’ve come across my dust-covered vintage PlayStation Portable I used to play when I was a teen.

Frankly speaking, I’ve been dreaming of playing some vintage console games on my Android phone for quite some time, but I didn’t know where to start. The sight of my good old PSP spurred me on to realize my dream. Fortunately, modern technologies allow playing our favorite PSP games on both PCs and Android devices. At the present time, anyone can download a reliable emulator, get some cool PSP ISOs from a trustworthy online source and start enjoying timeless retro titles on an Android device.  

Playing PSP Games Using the PPSSPP Emulator

As you may know, it’s technically impossible to run old school games on modern comps and phones. Still, gamers eager to relive the happy nostalgic memories can avail themselves of special programs called emulators designed to simulate the operation of vintage consoles and turn modern devices into a platform suitable for running retro titles.

The emulator exceptionally good at emulating the PSP is PPSSPP (quite a funny name, don’t you think?). You can download this tool emulator from Google Store completely legally. Moreover, it’s free of charge.

The PPSSPP emulation tool can run PSP without noticeable freezes and lags. Besides Android, it’s fully compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux.
