This PSP emulator for Android actually works (kind of)
Some titles, however, are considered playable, according to the developer of PPSSPP. Puzzle Bobble Deluxe and Pinball Fantasies can be played, as long as you don't mind the glitches that are yet to be ironed out. 3D games are also mostly a no-go, and the great majority of other titles will not take you much further than their main screen.
Still, if you are a die-hard PSP fan, keep an eye out for more reliable versions of PPSSPP. Also, you can grab version 0.2 of the emulator from the Play store and give it a try. ROMs, however, you'll have to find yourself.

5 years from now I'll be lying in a couch playing gears of war 3 on my "super phone".

True. Looking at GTA3 Anniversary edition i'd agree. Yet i'd still play it with a joystick on the cosole or PC. I couldn't bring myself to play GTA 3 on handhelds since it didn't feel good with on screen controls.

I would like to see more game oriented phones. Im kind of disappointed that the Xperia Play was the only one. Sony purposely released it with crap specs and old PS1 games that didnt sync with our PSN accounts (so we had to rebuy them if we already owned them on PSN) to tell us hardcore gamers that people dont want dedicated game controls. If they released a TOP OF THE LINE phone and gave us quality games to go with it, and them maybe also release a no contract version of it for kids and such so they dont have to play with your phone valued at $600, I think the outocme could have been quite different.
(oh, and the N-gage, LOL)
