Play PSP Games on Android

Play PSP Games on Android

Yes, you can play PSP games on your Android device. This is not a gimmick, nor some sort of absurd remote VNC. This is pure emulation right on your Android device. It is all thanks to the app PPSSPP. Surprisingly, some games work with excellent frame rate and graphics quality (Naruto for example). Keep in mind though, not every game will be compatible and it will not work with every device. So YMMV.

What You’ll Need:

  • Cube Elf
  • PSP .iso or .cso game.

Step 1: Find PSP Game

The first thing you need to do is find a PSP game. If you already own a PSP game, then there are tools on the web which you can use to extract the actual game file. Of course, you can find anything with a little Google searching.

Step 2: Preparation

Now, download PPSSPP from the play store. Also download the Cube.elf file to your device. Inside of PPSSPP, navigate Games and go to where you downloaded the cube elf file, then launch it. If it opens, then that means your device is capable of handling PSP games. Finally, go and launch a game. If all goes well, it should boot.

If the graphics look terrible, feel free to go inside of the settings and change the rendering resolution and display resolution to get the best quality output. Be aware that this could cause performance issues with the game. Also, for some games (such as Ratchet and Clank) you might have to enable Frame skipping.
