A few months ago, people discovered how to run their own, home cooked software on the PSP. Since then, and the discovery that Linux code could actually be ported quite easily, a veritable explosion of software hit the scene, among which some awesome software like Pixie, an eBook reader, and various emulators of older consoles, including a very snazzy SNES emulator. That makes for the very first portable SNES This very popular system saw literally thousands of games released for it, and the games look very good on the small PSP widescreen.
The only catch is that you have to have OS version 1.50 or less, 1.51 and 1.52 have fixes in them that prevent Home Brew from running, for some reason (it’s a shame that Sony doesn’t support this apparently, because the software is truly aweseome).
I was wondering if any other PSP owners here are discovering this vast new realm of possibility. I’ve figured out most stuff, and am tempted to start coding myself, so I’m also available for some questions. Also, we could discuss (hence my posting in the Café) some of the great games of that era.
