246w ago - Today dimmudroid has announced news of what is currently being developed as Project PS3P on PSX-Scene, which aims to offer PSP game emulation on Sony's PS3 entertainment system!

To quote: "I'd like to announce a project i've been working on, PS3P. Basically it's the ability to load PSP games on PS3.

As you may know, the PS3 can play PSP Minis, which are installed just like any other package. And most PSP games have nearly identical structures and files as PS3 games.

Thus far I've been able to achieve a few steps in the right direction, but I'm not ready to share my work just yet. I've been working on this in my free time (aka outside of work and family) and it will be done when it's done.

If you'd like to know more, or keep on the up and up, feel free to find me on http://twitter.com/dimmudroid

I may need a few alpha testers soon, I'll post requirements and such later today."

Would be nice to use the peek and poke on a mini as its running, would give us a lot more to work with for an open-source emulator... be a lot of work, but it would be easier than going in blind.

If you look in the flash folder there is already PS1, PS2 and PSP emulators. How about just finding a way to open them up to play whatever we tell it to play instead of making emulators for them?

Just like the remote play option there must be some way to tell the PS3 that all PSP games are minis so they play with that emulator.

I don't think it would look stretched because when you play a mini or a ps1 game it looks right.

Technically they won't as long as screen resolution of ur hdtv is 480p because psp does support 480p.

Why would they? PSP is a 16:9 ratio screen, and so is my HDTV.

Sure, they will be scaled to full screen, and perhaps wont look as great as on the psp.

In time, hopefully there would be options to set the aspect ratio. For instance, on the PSP if you have a emulator installed you can choose the aspect ratio / stretching methods. ex. Full screen on PSP vs original as designed for a 4:3 tv set for NES roms.
