Play PlayStation Games on Android

Do you miss the good old PlayStation days? I am talking about the original PlayStation with the 1MB Memory cards (I had a lot of those) and the boring yet simplistic outer-body design?  If so, there is hope for you. Thanks to multiple apps in the Play Store, you can play PlayStation games on Android.

Emulation has come so far on Android. It amazes me at just how many titles are compatible with the PlayStation emulators. Speaking of which, I am going to use the popular emulator called Fpse. In my experience, I found that this emulator works the best and will guarantee you a large collection of compatible titles. Also, it features nifty features like quick save state (goodbye 1MB memory cards) and allows you to customize many of the in-game emulation settings. However, don’t feel obligated to use Fpse. There are many other good PSX emulators appearing in the Play Store.

What You Will Need:

  • Fpse
  • PSX Game ISO
  • Playstation Bios File

The Simple Process

Okay, so the first thing you need to do is find the ISO or BIN of the game that you want to play. If you have the PlayStation disc, then there are tools on the web that you can use to get the game data off of it. Otherwise, just Google search.

If the game you’re trying to use is in a ECM format, you can use the unecm tool to convert it. Simply drag the ECM file to the unecm application in your file explorer.

Afterwards, download the PlayStation Bios zip and unzip it. You should see SCPH1001.BIN. Transfer the bios and game to your phone.

Finally, on Fpse, load the bios file and the game. To load the bios go to **Settings –> Misc –> Paths –> Load Bios. **The app will automatically scan your phone for any games.
