    iirc, the psp is very similar to the ps2 in terms of technical specs. just look at the state of PS2 emulation, lol.

    State of PS2 emulation?

    Buggy, graphics are missing, freezes up on almost all games (the best emulators seem aimed at making Final Fantasy work before any other game), and a framerate that would make a baby's cry seem like fun.

    When you're getting 15 FPS on a high end computer, you know we're a long way off.

    Pretty sure PCSX2 is now alot faster and better that what you're suggesting.. Then again I don't have a powerful system to test it on

    60 fps on Final Fantasy 10 on PCSX2 0.92 here but I dont want to play it untill they fix the FMVs. Would you believe they were working in the earlier version but now they arent. How annoying [​IMG]

    Wasn't there some news recently about a PSP emulator being in development and running some games already? I wouldn't expect too much any time soon, though.

    Isn't PSP 32-bit, while the PS2 Emotion Engine is 128-bit? I think the PSP should be much easier to emulate.

    That's one game and a 2D game. 3D has always been a pain and much more difficult to do. Besides, sound is also going to be a pain.

    Unless an emulator coder gets his/her hands on a devkit, you won't be seeing an emulator any time soon.
