So if you are a fan of Sony's PSP and love emulation you have a chance at playing some of the games on your Linux box thanks to PPSSPP
Technobabble - it is written in C++, and translates PSP CPU instructions directly into optimized x86, x64 and ARM machine code, using JIT recompilers (dynarecs). That's good right?
Luckily the project is open source (github link
) so you can compile it yourself or you can use one of the unofficial builds found here
It is great to see projects like this, I would hate for older consoles (and the games) to get lost because the creators no longer make or support them.
This is the first PSP emulator I know of as well and it's open source too so I hope it keeps the PSP on PC alive!
