    It's because the PSP doesn't just emulate PS1 games but it's CPU architecture is so close to that of the PS1's R3000 that it can run some of the original instructions nativley and everything else gets taken care of with emulation.

    A fun little tidbit that points to the origin of POPSloader(the PS1 emulator on the PSP/PS2 that handles what the CPU can't) is that it shares some emulation glitches with a PS1 emulator for the Macintosh that existed in the early 2000s...one that sony bought the rights to in order to take it off the shelves.

    psp3000 has what it's called "Placa Maldita" thats spanish, would be something like Forbidden Motherboard, this wasn't able to install a Custom Firmware permanently, meaning that each restart/reset of the console, would remove the custom firmwar,e and has to be launched again, NOT INSTALLED, but launched, that was until 6.61 Infinity went out --> https://www.lolhax.org/ credits to David Morgan, AKA Davee.

    Now you can create an hybrid installer for your psp3000 and install a custom firmware permanently, if you decide to go with the PSP, go with the psp GO. Dont go for the psp 100, as it only has 32 MB of Main Memory plus 4mb of dram, psp 2000, 3000, GO! and ---> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:List_of_PSP_Models

    Go for the PSP Go!, but forget about n64 emulation.

    I don't think the op cares about PSX or N64 Otherwise it would have mentioned it. A low end console that can just play the basic cartridge stuff before any n64 and psx is all that it needs, as long as there good, clean performance emulators supporting it like snes9x, genesis plus and final burn alpha.

    All the basic needs is about
    512MB - 1GB ram
    Decent storage device Probablly anything over under 16GB As those roms don't take up lots of space.
    Decent battery life, Well sceen light, Simple ease of use and some other functions.
    Good functional emulators, perhaps support for snes9x Fceultra Visualboy andvance Genesis plus and final burn alpha cores, or retro arch.
    Although maybe they should be more specific what they are looking for, but the op kinda already says what they wanted.

    I've been using the PSP for the last few years. Though I'm planning to switch to this later this year:

    lol...well yeah, "maldita" can be translated to that, it can be several things,

    damn
    damned
    blasted
    fucking
    cursed
    accursed
    darn
    dratted

    But it depends on what sense you use the word, in this case would be Damned Board, or even Forbidden Board.... just don't let me get started with the Spanish lessons ;D.

    Then again:
    Psp --> for anything lower than N64 Not Including N64, but including PS1 due to performance.
    Xperia Play -->for anything lower than PS1, including PS1.
    OLD nintendo DS, DS Lite, DSi, --> Can emulate Nes, and Snes [ABOUT 80% good], and NeoGeo games, [80% Compatibility].

    I saw that thing yesterday, and at first was like, yeah could work, and then i was like NOPE.
    Imagine the HEAT and the BULK of that thing in your hands. might as well stick with the "JXD S7800" or the "GPD XD".

    Unless you have access to a ps3 to download ps1 games to play on the psp, or cfw, and the fact that psp are 10 years old, outdated and no longer production, finding one won't be easy or will cost more if people are selling them Complete with a sizeable memory stick for large data size, and to mention, working and functional with less than problem matic things.

    Is better to get a decent android thing like the xperia play @ScarletDreamz mentioned since is always supported with update for things. But if you want performance, i recommend the shield portable like before, it has 16GB storage, and can use micro sd card for more, Long battery life, HD touch screen and a great sound system that can be heard from many other rooms in the house. With google support for games, apps and media is hard to get bored of that thing. Comes installed with Sonic 4 Episdoe 2 just to show off how powerful it is. It runs at 60 FPS like the console ports do, that not many other android devices can.
    Also don't try to deflect attacks or bullets with it, it may work but i never tested. Is not that kind of shield, is more like the shield from marvel univers. TOP SECRET

    If you find a PSP for $20, I'd say it's worth it. Otherwise, if budget is a concern, just grab a cheap Android and bluetooth gamepad for it. Anymore, even the cheapest new Androids have plenty of power behind them for something like RetroArch. If you're willing to dump a lot of money into a handheld, the Nvidia Shield is nice.

    PlayStation eboots are ridiculously easy to make yourself, can be made from any game in the PlayStation library, and require no more than a PC.
    Installing custom firmware onto a PSP is literally just drag-and-drop, and there's still a ton of places to find support (including this very website).
    PSP 3000 models are going for between $50 and $90 used on eBay. PSP 2000 are going for even less, some of which have already been hacked.
    Memory sticks are irrelevant, since these adapters support up to two 128GB microSD cards and can be found for less than $5.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    The PSP remains the best, budget option for portable emulation.

    All of these facts aside, Super Nintendo emulation on the PSP is still poor for intensive games like StarFox and Yoshi's Island.

    If you want something with more juice, grab an NVIDIA Shield (either the portable or tablet). Despite running Android, the input delay is vastly reduced compared to other Android alternatives, making it perfect for emulation. Although I understand that streaming games from a PC to the Shield will introduce its own latency issues.

    AS mentioned below, eboots are WAY too easy to make, takes less then 10 seconds...and having a tegra for emulation its just not budget friendly, besides there are very few devices with tegra, not to mention the build design, so any android device with keyboard, preferable keypad as the Xperia Play, will be the best to bet on android for emulation. as for the psp being 10 years old, so what? ebay its full of them, a psp 200 starting from 40 bucks.

    Psp are about 40 bucks on ebay sadly.

    also
    @TheKawaiiPug you can find android cheap clones that work, for under 40 bucks.

    actually, just very few PSP 3000 models can't be hacked and i am not entirely sure if this still holds true (i vaguely remember reasing that the infinity hack would even work on those devices, but then again i do not have one of those 3000 models so i wouldnt know).

    I would still prefer a 2000 model over my 3000, mainly because i can definetly see the scanlines very obviously. That makes it far from unplayable, but still, it bothers me. the 2000 models have a far better screen.

    PS1 emulation would be nice as a matter of fact. Also didn't realise it was simple to install CFW.

    As for the price range that sounds really reasonable for something that basically emulates exactly what I want.

    @ScarletDreamz thanks for all info and to everyone else as well! ^^ ;)

    Regardless of all the quoting people is doing of my post or the cost of things, the op mentions nothing about price. So i was just giving my impression for what they may like. If the question was more clear on what they were looking for then i suppose it would make a difference.

    The kind of product, how much they willing to spend, what features it can support for what they wanted. But is all just ideas. Which i actually like some of yours. Especially @ScarletDreamz since i at one point wanted a xperia play. :) Though i never seen that red looking laptop before, and it made me want to know more. If laptops were more like that but able to play games and such at good performance. I would have that instead. :D

    i just double checked the infinity website which is a very recent cfw installer (http://infinity.lolhax.org/index.php) and it explicitly only lists the E1000 Model (PSP street) as unsupported. so my guess is that really any psp except the street models can be easily hacked.
