Play your favorite PlayStation Portable games anywhere and anytime without needing the actual console. Enjoy popular titles on the go with better graphics and performance, and a whole lot of added features with PPSSPP. This popular cross-platform emulator was first released to the public on November 1, 2012, by Henrik Rydgård, co-founder of the fantastic Dolphin emulator.

PlayStation Portable Simulator Suitable for Playing Portably, better known as PPSSPP, is an open-source Sony PSP emulator that's available for Windows, macOS / OS X, Linux, Android, iOS, WiiU, Switch, BlackBerry 10, MeeGo, Xbox Series X, and S, Pandora, and Symbian platforms - prioritizing the emulator's stability, speed, and portability on different devices. Although PPSSPP is free for everyone, premium versions are also available with added functionality and features.

Better Graphics

Feast your eyes with sharper and more vivid graphics as you play your favorite games. PPSSPP features many graphical enhancements to the actual PSP console. The most notable enhancements are:

  • Support for higher screen resolutions
  • Antialiasing
  • Image scaling
  • Support for awesome shaders
  • Linear and anisotropic filtering

Save States

One of the advantages of emulated games is the ability to save and load your game anytime. PPSSPP Supports multiple save states for each of your game files so you can see those multiple endings and scenarios without having to start over - that's almost cheating!

Additional Features

As a well-developed PSP Emulator, PPSSPP also features Ad Hoc Wireless Networking to allow multiplayer capabilities similar, if not more, than the original console has to offer. It also features Dynamic Recompilation (JIT) and provides many device-specific features such as 'Immersive Mode' for Android devices, screen stretching for BlackBerry 10, and Multimedia button support for Symbian devices. All devices and platforms also support accelerometers as well as keyboards and gamepads input.
