Project PS3P Announced, PSP Emulation on PS3 in Development


188w ago - Today dimmudroid has announced news of what is currently being developed as Project PS3P on PSX-Scene, which aims to offer PSP game emulation on Sony's PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: "I'd like to announce a project i've been working on, PS3P. Basically it's the ability to load PSP games on PS3.

As you may know, the PS3 can play PSP Minis, which are installed just like any other package. And most PSP games have nearly identical structures and files as PS3 games.

Thus far I've been able to achieve a few steps in the right direction, but I'm not ready to share my work just yet. I've been working on this in my free time (aka outside of work and family) and it will be done when it's done.

If you'd like to know more, or keep on the up and up, feel free to find me on http://twitter.com/dimmudroid

I may need a few alpha testers soon, I'll post requirements and such later today."

This is quite cool would like to play some PSP games on my big screen, homebrew scene is developing quite well now.

Dont think it will be streched as it'll auto configure it to the best your tv can view.

I don't know but can't PS3 already play / emulate PSP games on it's own? I feel it's a bit over complicated to write our own "emulator" again ... I'd much rather see using the already built in capabilities than creating the duplicate ones.
well, that's what the project is I'm already guessing.

the psp emulation is built in, but not documented. I'm sure the creator is taking time to explore as they go. ;]
