Playstation on the iPhone
From the maker of GPsPhone comes psx4iPhone, a Playstation emulator for iPhone. Its not quite a release yet, but zodttd, the developer, says a release could be only a few days away.
What can you look forward to in the first release of psx4iphone? Depends on how the beta testing goes. I will be working on the existing dynarec (cpu emulation) quite a lot to improve performance as it will be required. The screen scaling and screen placement will be drastically improved over the above images. Memory card support will work, and save states might work. Sound will be implemented as well. The interface/gui will be very similar to gpSPhone's just with 4 hard buttons instead of just A+B, and L2 and R2 buttons. A rough estimate would be about 75% of games will be compatible. With such a large library of games, this may or may not include your favorite game. Performance will have to be increased about 25% to get a good portion of games running smoothly. This can be done.

wow how cool but in my heart of hearts i know it just wont be playable no matter how hard you try
games like megaman x4 would be doable thopugh but games like resident evil woud not.

Now what i don't understand is.. well, remember when NES came out for the iphone, and it was all slow and what not, then there was alot of talk about... "how a bout a SegaGen/GBA/N64/PSP" emulator, and most of the conversations led to - iphone not powerful enough. Well, GBA is working (quite well, but still bugged, steady improvement though) but i'm very skeptical about this "PSX" emulator... How? isn't the hardware requirement for such an emulator too great for the iphone to handle? Heck, i'll just hope for it, i'd love to play crash bandicoot wherever i am without buying a psp.

You may wana note that people who DONATE get to BETA TEST.
iPhone is very powerful btw, if anyone told you it can not run PS1 or N64, they simply don't know what they are saying. It may not run PS2 or anything like that but it is a very strong phone.

well, i stand corrected, after actually looking around a little, it seems that the psx ran a 33mhz processor and used 2mb of ram (from wiki), i think the iphone may very well have that one beat .

So lets go all out and get a sensor bar modded to attach to the phone and have a wii emulator for all those people who can't get their hands on one for the holiday.

but this is more like one of those things to show off to your friends
"my phone plays playstation1 what does your phone do?"

This is sweet, I will def download when its available. Hope the beta testing goes well!
12-09-2007, 01:31 PM #12
donated. this is the emulator that I have been looking forward too.

yea idk about this one, seems like it would be a bit tricky to do on the iphone, especiallly some games. Like the l and r buttons are already sort of hard to use on gpsphone, and I think this is more of just to see what the iphone is capable of more than anything. I think developers are getting a little emulator happy too haha
Next lets make an iPhone emulator to run on our iPhones!! loli LOVE apple.

We would need an TV emulator that is better than the TV out that's on the iphone. I spent the $49 for the "special iphone cables" and the TV out is terrible compared to my video ipod. I would love a decent TV out that worked with everything ( mail,web,rss) then I could plug it into my car and read email on my nav screen. OK so I'm "out there" but I consider the iPhone to be potential gateway to many parts of our lives.

At the moment:
60% of me says that this won't be very enjoyable
40% says that this could work out very well, especially by February when the SDK is released, then the developers at zodtt will have more resources available to them to make even better, more efficient emulators.

I don't mean to be pessimistic but due to all the emulators out there, I really doubt that ps1 emulator will amount to much...I know it's very difficult to get compatibility and such but it just seems like a very difficult thing to do on an computer, much less and iphone...but I'm really rooting for this project as I would like for it to prove me and everyone out there wrong...go emulators!!
