PPSSPP - PSP Emulation for Jailbroken Phones

By , on March 23, 2013

We don't normally engage in discussions about jailbreaking iOS devices, but every now and then you can see the appeal in going down that somewhat gray pathway.

One such benefit includes being able to reduce the amount of portable devices you take out with you by emulating them on your iPhone or iPad.

The clever boffins over at PPSSPP are making large strides in emulating the PSP, with recent developments getting the JIT (Just In Time) rendering working (somewhat) stably, meaning you can play with near perfect framerates.

For those interested, the iOS version of PPSSPP is currently available via Cydia, so if you're already Jailbroken and want to take the plunge, it couldn't be easier.

What would you like to see running smoothly on iOS?

I'd love to see something like Monster Hunter, Phantasy Star, FF Dissidia, Star Wars Battlefront, Ys Seven, Crisis Core...Oh the list goes on.

I don't like the idea of jailbreaking my iphone and I don't plan to do so. But if they manage to make Silent Hill Origins run okay, then I might reconsider...
