To quote from the video's caption: "Launching PSP game on PS3 - World's First Test

Here's a first video of launching PSP game on the PS3. It wasn't easy at all, I worked about a week without any breaks, a SDK which has recently leaked very helped me. I don't know why there was no in-game sound, seems I made some mistake when building a game last time.

There were some problems in controls (I mean some buttons were messed up, e.g. START became [], select didn't work at all), but I'm gonna fix it."

I think I might just give it a try... if anything good comes out of it, I'll post a video of how I did it .-.

Of course there is a PSP emu on the PS3, this is how minis works. This is a small part of Angry Birds PARAM.SFO (inside EBOOT.PBP)

Can you see the PSP_SYSTEM_VER, also, if I'm not wrong, PSOne Classics runs as PSP too.

I tried to run some PSP games UMD version, but the problem is the EBOOT.BIN and BOOT.BIN (BOOT.BIN is an EBOOT.BIN decrypted), I hex edited it but we can't sign it. They have almost the same file architecture.

This thread looks to be dead but with all of the recent advancements with Custom Firmware and other homebrew. Would/could anyone try to pick up this topic?

This guys videos if you believe them or not were still convincing enough to pose the possibility that there is a PSP emu on the PS3. The guy has not posted his tool but it looks as if this discussion is still good enough to bring back to life.

This guy has given us quite a few clues how to replicate this... He used his NBA Live 08' Disk dump, and places all the information from Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines into this directory.

He probably then copied the param.sfo from PSP Mini game, and modified the tag to BD-GAME instead of PSN-GAME, then placed all that information in hdd0/Game/XYZ (same as param.sfo and the actual PSP game), then copied that same information to external USB under /gamez/. Backup launcher is then launched, and viola! I can test tomorrow, got work here soon...but its really not that unconceivable that the Sony PSP emulator actually works...

This backs up what I just wrote 2 seconds ago, there is info in hdd0/game/here... that is where the eboot.bin/eboot.pbp is being launched from.
