A PS1 emulator for the PSP would be superb.

Wipeout 2097

Driver

MGS1

*swoon*

Colony Wars!

Einhander

Raiden DX :(

With literally over five thousand games in PSone's library, the potential (and potential impact to our wallets) is staggering.

Ace Combat,

Driver,

TOCA,

Alundra...

The list is endless :unsure:

But do any of them require more than two of the shoulder buttons, a circumstance which would make them utterly worthless on the PSP?

I really think this is an ill-considered move by Sony. It smacks of a company which knows its system isn't going to triumph against very strong opposition. There are plenty of things they could do which would make the PSP more tempting...giving us a broken-by-design PSone emulator isn't one of them.

Worthless? They could either be re-engineered to only need two shoulder buttons (via downloadable service, presumably from the PS3) or the emulator will be customisable to use different buttons instead (analogue stick nudge let/right as R2/L2, for instance).

Makes it more tempting to me. Have you not been reading the positive response in this thread? :unsure:

Ace Combat makes fairly extensive use of all the buttons, not sure about the others. Configurable though and some > none any day, given the vast PSOne library.

I think it is a useful feature. I did already comment that'd I'd buy a PSP if the emulation is any good (don't see why not), just for a handful of titles. Many games look ace on the little PSOne LCD screen I have on my desk. The PSP screen is superior. Delight!

Every single sentence here is just plain wrong.

Amazing!
