Description

PPSSPP emulator for iOS can run your PSP games on your iPhone and iPad in full HD resolution (see also Android and MacOS version.

It can even upscale textures that would otherwise be too blurry as they were made for the small screen of the original PSP.

Even on modern iPhone and iPad, you can often run at double the original resolution.

Features

PPSSPP is a PSP emulator for iOS written in C#.

It translates PSP CPU instructions directly into optimized x86, x64, ARM or ARM64 machine code, using JIT recompilers (dynarecs).

PPSSPP can thus run on quite low-spec hardware, including stronger ARM-based phones and tablets, as long as there’s OpenGL ES 2.0 support.

  • Play in HD resolutions and more
  • Play on a tablet for big-screen mobile gaming
  • Customize on-screen touch controls or use an external controller or keyboard
  • Save and restore game state anywhere, anytime
  • Crank up the anisotropic filtering and texture scaling
  • Continue where you left off by transferring saves from your real PSP

PPSSPP is an open source project, licensed under the GPL 2.0 (or later).

Partly thanks to such contributions, PPSSPP’s compatibility is steadily increasing, letting us all play our PSP games on the devices of our choice.
