 XPERIA PLAY NEWS

PSXPeria Project allows you to convert PlayStation discs into Xperia Play game files

Driver, PaRappa the Rapper, and Gran Turismo all compatible

Product: Sony Ericsson Xperia Play | Manufacturer: Sony Ericsson

If you're frustrated by the glacial pace at which Sony seems to be bringing PlayStation classics to the Xperia Play, you're not alone.

But, while most of us do little more than tut and moan, some clever chaps over on the XDA developers forums have decided to actually do something about it.

The result is PSXPeria, a piece of software developed by senior XDA forumites 'fma965' and 'Masters 2150' that allows you to convert disc images of PlayStation games into files which are playable on the Xperia Play.

The possibilities!

So, that dusty stack of PSone games need not languish in the cupboard any more. Get them out, create some ISO images, run the PSXPeria program, and you'll soon be tackling Tenchu on the bus.

What's more, this is one of the easiest bits of Android tinkering to carry out we've ever seen. You don't need root access to your phone, and there's a video tutorial - which we've embedded below - to walk you through the entire process.

If you're keen to get cracking, simply install the Java runtime environment, and then check out the project's XDA developers forums thread and GitHub page for more information - including a list of the PSone titles so far confirmed as compatible.

I don't believe it was ever on the market Aero, follow the hyperlinks to the XDA forums that are in the article - you'll find it there.

This is very old new!!

Einhander isn't 'perfect', but crashes are minimal, some background renering is a touch on the dodgey side but it plays well.

R-Type Delata and R-Types are perfect.

I tried Die Hard Trilogy but the mini map and few other bit don't quite show up properly.

Compatibility list claims Einhander is 'perfect'... worth checking out for that alone as it glitches horribly on FPSe.
