Well, well! You (probably) already heard about the several PlayStation Developer Wikis like for the PS3 and the PS4, but also for the handheld consoles like PSP and PSVITA, with it's strong communities and useful information for each wiki. But while the actual Console Generations were already satisfied with their own wikis, there was something missing. If you wanted to get some informations about older Sony Consoles, then we had to be honest - your informations kept very short. But since we speak about the "past tense form" from "has", the lack of useful information could change with your help. Thanks to the well-known user @GregoryRasputin, you can now contribute to a PS1 and PS2 DevWiki! Yeah, that's right. Sony's both first released home consoles are getting it's own dedicated wikis and everyone is welcome to contribute.
The PS Dev Wiki's that comprise of PS4, PS3, PSP and PS Vita developer Wiki's are awesome, yet the family seemed as if it was missing something and that something was Wiki's related to the PS1 and PS2, which is why i have created Wiki's for both those consoles.
It will be harder documenting the PS1 and PS2 as the majority of the sites connected to those consoles are long gone and many are not archived properly on Wayback Machine, i am hoping that some people from those scenes will be able to contribute, perhaps some developers such as @bigboss, anyhow here are the links to all the PS Dev Wiki's:
Sure in the beginning, the content is rare on both wikis but with your help, this could change in near future. This makes it so interesting to be a part from the "growing process" when you already contribute at the beginning. And yes, maybe there was already some similar projects in the past , especially for the PS2 but as "Greg" already explained above, the old information are very rare and no one did a proper backup back in time. No question that in the early 2000s during the lifetime of both consoles, there wasn't such "wiki platforms" available on the internet. Therefore it's even more beautiful to see that there is still some existing Progress and Interest as you probably recognized a few days ago with several Releases for the PS2. Those consoles deserved it's own dedicated wikis and finally they got one.
If you want to contribute to both new wikis, please make sure that the registration on both wikis are disabled due to the high Spam amount on all wikis. You can add a message down below (same for the original source) or by contacting @GregoryRasputin at the Discord Channel "PlayStationBuddies". All the wikis itself have their own dedicated Discord Channels as well, which can be found here. Oh and yes, both wikis are hosting at the same server from PSP DevWiki. There is no need to be confused. This is actually intended since those three wikis are the smallest one. A few users from this Forum were already registered, so what are you waiting for? Let's contribute!

The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..Continue reading
Advanced Power Options (v1.10) Released: A XMB MOD for all CFW & HENA handy XMB (main menu) modification for the PlayStation 3 that is now compatible with either CFW (Custom FirmWare) or HEN (Homebrew ENabler) has been updated to v1.10 with a new name as well. This project has seen contributions from various developer's that include @DeViL303, @kozarovv, @mysis @Joonie and @lmn7 and collectively have created Advance Power Options (v1.10). This sleek mod allows for additional Power Options to be displayed and executed with ease from the comfort of the XMB. The new inclusions for your XMB will include a fast Shut Down (no conformation is asked), A Soft Reboot (a faster reboot, doesn't completely shutdown system) or a Hard Reboot (which shuts down slower, as it's a complete system restart). Plus, the mod provides a few additional Advanced Options and these include the ability to Reboot in Recovery Mode (which can be a handy feature, as the official method from Sony involves a process of holding the power button down on your console for awhile), If you desire even faster access to a few functions within the Recovery Mode the devs have you covered here as well as there is options to Rebuild Database or Check the File-System on reboot by selection those included options on the XMB as well. For HEN user's that about sums up things, but CFW user's you have one more additional function which is optional but Also included is an optional pkg to Boot into OtherOS. Overall, this is a great collection of work and a superb modification for your PS3's XMB to add new functionality. View a preview of this mod before installing it, by checking out the developer's YouTube video included below (video coverage is of v1.04) to get an idea of what this mod is all about for CFW and now HEN user's also.

PCSX-R (PS4 Port) - PlayStation (PS1 on PS4) Emulator by ZnullptrThis news is a bit late but wanted to get everyone caught up on this project for the PlayStation 4 as Developer Znullptr (David Miller) has recently developed a new emulator port for exploited PS4 console (currently 5.05 being the latest exploitable firmware in public) called PCSX-R which as you may of guessed is a PlayStation 1 emulator. The developer has said he ceased emulation development (source code release is planned) on the PS4 but we have seen a few tweets (1, 2) that could suggest he is still working on a few things (like a mednafen port that maybe is a better options for PS1 gameplay(?) ) but that remains to be seen. This PS1 emulator port seems to be working good enough to play many titles (some issue's are outlined below in the notes by markus95). PS4 gameplay footage can viewed in the videos provided below. So far we have seen this emulation developer soft release several PoC emulators for the PS4 that have included Yabause (A Sega Saturn Emulator w/ speed issue's) / Reicast (DreamCast w/ speed issue's) & ,mGBA (GameBoy Advance). Since this is an early concept and build you have to manually swap your roms for a game you want to play, details about the process can be seen below courtesy of @Markus95 .Continue reading
