Nostalgic PS1 games are found running on the PlayStation Phone
In yet the latest look at the handset, we find the XPERIA Play branded device being equipped at playing some nostalgic original PlayStation games that some of us have long forgotten. Specifically, the recent video clip of the device shows that an app called ROM Buddy that's loaded and provides the ability to play some of Sony's original PlayStation titles – such as Resident Evil 2 and Ridge Racer.
Granted that we're seen an app offering this functionality right now, it's hard to gauge whether or not it'll be something available on the actual final product. However, it'd be almost unlikely to find Sony Ericsson to offer something like this from the onset. Nevertheless, we'd imagine that the hacking community will get their work on to have a variety of emulators ready for its arrival. And in any event, it just goes to show that the PlayStation Phone means serious business when it comes to playing video games.

Rom buddy is just a app that lets you get games from you still need to get the emulator with it. Its not anything you cant get running on current android devices now I have it on my Droid X. Still with it current specs this phone is outdated hope they change the specs before it release here and for a price currently lower then the psp go. Otherwise it wont be worth it cause the psp go has been hack and can play emulators and PSX emulator is currently being ported to the psp go just like it was on the psp.

the keypad and joystick buttons look like shit...Sony shud really polish the design if they want mass appeal although it wud be already getting that with the PS games running on it...maybe add a trackpad kinda thing to act as Analogue controller for racing games...that wud be sweet!
