"Psx4all" PlayStation emulator for iPhone and iPod Touch on the way

Share

playstation-emulator-iphone.jpgSome law-breaking CRIMINAL has been hacking around with Sony’s PlayStation emulator (presumably nicked from the PSP) and Apple’s iPhone OS, managing to get a basic PS1 emulator working on the iPhone and the phoneless iPod Touch.

He’s getting around Apple’s hatred of buttons by overlaying the PlayStation controller’s buttons over the game screen, but at the moment the screenshots he’s released show it running at a pretty disappointing frame rate. Creator ZodTTD reckons it’s just a work in progress – and that his beta test, due in days, will sort all that out and make it work a lot better.

It still won’t solve the biggest problem, though – that stealing games is WRONG and you’re all committing CRIMINAL ACTS whenever you play unofficial emulators of any kind. And imagine how saddened Steve jobs will be, personally, should he ever find out.

  • I literally laughed with tears in my eyes, with respect to the article.

    This guy seriously needs to grow up.

    “And imagine how saddened Steve jobs will be, personally, should he ever find out.”

    LOL, looks like another SJ lover. Why not email him to see if you 2 honeymooners can get a room together?

  • Oh man – so indicative of today’s rage filled era. Such a shame! Pyrofer, that would have been a useful comment if you weren’t so intent on throwing the insults. And such harsh words – maybe you just got out of bed the wrong side, or maybe you just need a slap? I hope you get over it matey… 😉

    I dont even know where to start. What a load of rubbish. reporting like this should be illegal.
    He is NOT a criminal, it was NOT ‘SONY’s PSX emulator and its totally legal.

    “that stealing games is WRONG and you’re all committing CRIMINAL ACTS whenever you play unofficial emulators of any kind.”

    What kind of total biased stupid jerk would write this sentance, undoing all the hard work put in by those trying to bring actual facts rather than FUD to the public.
    Yeah, stealing games IS wrong. Playing a game you own on an emulator instead of that dead PSX that broke 2 years ago is LEGAL. There is a ‘fair use’ clause in law to allow it.

    Grow up and learn to report like a real journalist instead of a biggot.
