    Whats so great about this?

    1. It is designed by Sony, thus , its bound to run better than 3rd party emulators such as FPSE.

    2. Its free.

    Unless this supports the analog touchpads, I'm fine with my *ahem*free copy of FPse.

    It does. Remember, it is the native PSX Emulator.

    The reason why I'm in doubt is because Crash Bandicoot only supports the touchpads for controlling the D-Pad, instead of actual analog support. The original PS1 copy didn't support analog, so that'd be understandable, but this is why I'm questioning if this emulator has it because it's based on the Crash Bandicoot emulator.

    Any chance of this being migrated to other Androids? If this would work better than PSX4Droid or FPSe on my Inspire, then hell yes.

    Awesome freakin' news, this will let run your own ISOs all over the way, thus using native PSX support.. So the title fit the news perfectly =)

    Very nice, looking forward to trying this on my xperia play [​IMG]

    Not that i've run into any problems with fpse, but still, if the files loaded through sony's emulator work as nicely as the included crash bandicoot game does it can only be a good thing [​IMG]

    Nope. This requires the Sony Ericsson framework to run.

    This is absolutely great news along with the R800x's (verizon xperia play's) bootloader getting cracked

    and it's not really POPSLoader, it's just Sony's emulator being modified to play any ISO we want (as opposed to a 3rd party emulator like FPse)

    Great news. I have an xperia play. Once i have used 7zip to uncompress zpak and it worked. After that i have tree folders:
    Code:
    content/data/image.ps
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ/data/ps1_rom.bin
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ/manual
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ/metadata.xml
    save/xxxxx/0.raw
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ /1.raw
    ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ /metadata.xml
    ucc/xxxxxx/metadata.xml
    Cannot manage to repack a different iso file in the zpack because image.ps is unknow format.

    Here's the metadata.xml in content folder:

    the one inside save folder:

    i dont see the point as android has ps1 and n64 emulators that can already run on xperia play quite well....


    whatever you guys think i guess.........

    I forgot
    The PS1 emulator on the Xperia play runs better than FPSE or PSX4Droid (or so I've heard). So this is pretty cool.
