[v1.4.2] PPSSPP – Best and free PSP emulator for multiple platforms

PPSSPP (short for PlayStation Portable Simulator Suitable for Playing Portably) is a cross-platform and open-source emulator originally created by Henrik Rydgård (AKA: hrydgard, one of the main members in the development team of the renowned NGC/Wii emulator – Dolphin) from Sweden, in 2012. It can perfectly run the vast majority of PSP games, supports Windows, Linux, Mac OX, Android, iOS and many other mainstream computer and mobile device operating system.

PPSSPP was written mainly using C, C++, in order to improve its running efficiency and portability. It’s much easier to operate, and has faster emulation speed and more perfect function than the JPCSP emulator relying on Java. Up to this day, it has been confirmed by numerous emulator players to be the most powerful PSP emulator for both Windows and android platforms.

The PC edition’s graphics quality of PPSSPP is far superior to the PSP handheld machine, and runs very smooth. Therefore, the PC players just need to equip an Xbox 360 gamepad, then you can enjoy the same (or even better) game experience with PSP (including the handle and more refined graphics)!
