Ready to play all your favorite PSP games on your Android smartphone? Well, right now you can't, but it looks like the PPSSPP emulator might make that possible one day. As the name suggests, it emulates the hardware of Sony's well-known portable game console. Unfortunately, it is still at an early stage of its development...

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 doubt it. Drivers would be an issue.

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)
