139w ago - Today garyopa at PSX-Scene has reported that Russian hacker GamerSuper has began a project for playing PSP games on Sony's PS3 entertainment system and shared a PoC video!
Below is the proof-of-concept video, and for those curious GamerSuper's own Web site is located HERE.
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 definitely trust him. i also added him as friends on youtube because i'm sure this is not a fake o.o
people where able to emulate dc games on ps3. why should somebody not be able to build a psp emulator. the system structure is quit same because its from sony. i don't say its identical but i'm pretty sure sony where lazy and said "oh, ps3 have xmb, psp have xmb. we make is simple so we can convert it easy.
and i'm pretty sure that exactly this point helped gamersuper to build this homebrew. and i can't wait to play with it crisis core on my 4.00x1.80meters beamer screen ^^
i have take a look on ps3 directories and i see on my psn psx games its emulator like psp the files are EBOOT.PBP the ps3 inside on flash2(i think) have folders with psp emulation. i will try tommorow first to use the old patchers for eboot.pbp who i make psx games work on psp and IF works definetely its working on psp.
i think its not have to do with backup manager but someone can try just to copy the directory of extracted iso on external hard disk.
like how he show it now with the backup manager, it looks like most of us can do this, with just editing the PS3_DISC.SFB file and start it through backup manager (after unpacking the game files in there folders).
