    If you've heard rumors about a Sony Playstation 1 emulator being coded for the Nintendo Wii and Gamecube I'm here to tell you the rumors were true. Emu_kidid, Sepp256 and TehPola have been quietly working on a port of PCSX for both Nintendo consoles and I've been privileged with being able to test out their work in progress emulator.

    Let me tell you, I'm impressed at how far they have come as the emulator can handle some games and runs at a very playable speed. Click on the replies link to see a video of the emulator in action and also to read an interview I conducted with Emu_Kidid about WiiSX.

    There's PSX and Saturn emulators out there, but no Sega CD or Turbografx CD? Odd...

    The way Emu_kidid, Sepp256 and TehPola are, you won't see a release till its nearly perfect/very usuable. (As with Wii64.) So it could be awhile, just check back at tehskeen and their google source page for updates.

    But the question is, will it be able to play the "3"?

    It's kinda weird to have a decent homebrew PSX emulator before there's even a proper NES one [​IMG]

    However, there's no point for me to emulate the PSX on the Wii...Having a modded PS1 or PS2 is just much more convenient [​IMG]

    What's wrong with FCEU that makes it an "improper" NES emulator?

    It probably will. If I'm not mistaken, PCSX supports those games, and this will be a PCSX-port. They're aiming for full FPS, so I think there's a pretty good chance that this will emulate PS1-games pretty much perfectly. I can't wait [​IMG]

    Looking forward to this [​IMG]

    Just wondering, is it possible that the Wii can emulate the PS2 properly?

    If emulation were done well enough, it's possible. But since PS2 is poorly emulated on the PC, I doubt we'd see any Wii emulation of the PS2 running at full speed.

    There is a PSP emulator for the Wii running at 4fps, I believe.

    Likely not at any kind of reasonable speed.

    Besides, PS2 has audiovisual features Wii lacks (even if few games use them). Such as support for Dolby Digital and output above 480p.
