Homebrew games and emulators

In addition to the homebrew games such as PSP Chess and PSP Go, there are various programs copied from other games, in particular a Bejeweled clone and games such as Dr. Mario. Perhaps one of the most popular forms of homebrew that has the largest following and has persuaded many PSP owners to diligently avoid upgrading their firmware can be found in the form of homebrew emulators that emulate the behavior of other gaming systems.

Since its initial release, the PSP has become one of the best and most versatile emulation platforms available. There are PSP emulators for the Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis, Atari Lynx, and a variety of other platforms. There's even a MAME emulator for the PSP. Many of these are available bundled together in packs, such as the Kxsploit Homebrew Pack.

All of these emulators need ROMs to run. You can obtain many excellent homebrew ROMs for a variety of systems at
