First it was PS2 Emulation that came to exploited PlayStation 4's but now the developer's have appeared to made progress towards unlocking PSP Emulation as well on the PS4. As sometimes the case with re-release of games from older generations they contain not only the game but an emulator to play the original files. KiiWii (from GBAtemp) had noticed that Parappa the Rappa (PS4) files matched the PS2 Classic structure, from there a bit more digging was done and it was then concluded that Parappa the Rappa for the PS4 was running on a PSP Emulator. This is great news for the PS4 Homebrew Community and means some new adventures for PSP Emulation on the PS4 are on the horizon. Don't forget on PS4 Linux Side of things as well, PSP emulation is also possible, a recent Linux Distro by the PSXITA Team (psxitarch linux) bundles various emulators like RetroArch/PPSSPP so be sure to give that new distro release a look as well.
While the discovery is still in its early stages, the community is sure to progress this find into what hopes to be a fully working PSP emulator like what is now possible with the PS2 Classic emulator. So far there is positives and also some obstacles to overcome, the positives we have seen demonstrated the Cube Test Homebrew running on the Emu (via screenshot by ZiL0G80 )
Cube Test (PSP) working on PS4's PSPEMU
Overall there has not been much reported of being tested with PSP Homebrew and likely will take some figuring out how the emulator works for most to work.. Something that could take some time as we look at the PS3 community still learning and making discoveries to Sony's internal Ps2 Emulator and PsP Emulator. This could be quick work by developer's (would not surprise me) or also it could take some time for devs to document how this emulator works as there is no instructions manuals included for this emulator..
Darkelement has gave a bit of a sneak peak to PSP PKG creation with this tweet and pastie file. What we know from various test in KiiWii original thread we do have a few working games and also alot of games not working. This can be expected early in the process, the question however remains is this a simple fix to get these games (many) not working or its a more serious setback. The coming days and weeks should shed plenty of light on the situation and hopefully plenty of PSP goodies on our PS4..

ref00d (plugin) Released - Run Games / Apps that require a higher FW from your ownFollowing the big news from Team Molecule several weeks ago and effectively opening the system wide open, it was only a matter of time before we would start to see other developer's start putting the finding to use and we have seen the FAPS Team (team members listed below) have recently released a new (taiHEN) plugin called ref00d, this plugin is a big deal, as it will allows users/devs to use content that would otherwise require a higher firmware to be played/executed on a lower firmware for your exploited PS Vita or PlayStation TV. Typically not an easy task to reach but thanks to Team Molecule's research and the FAPS Team we now have a ready to use simple plugin solution to remove those firmware restrictions, see additional details about this plugin release in the release notes provided below by the development team.
[Update x2] RetroArch (PS2) Preview (includes 2 cores) - Introducing New Nigthly PS2 ReleasesUpdate (2x): Reports are coming in this PS2 Homebrew is also working on PS3 HAN & PS4 (5.05).
With progress making headway on the upcoming PS4 port of RetroArch from a group of developer's, Another developer (fjtrujy) started progress on a PlayStation 2 (PS2) port several months back (view previous progress) and now has a port that progressed enough for a public soft release, Now available in the new RetroArch PS2 Nighties for anyone interested in downloading and trying out the multi-system emulator on your homebrew capable PS2 hardware. @fjtrujy warns that many things need implemented yet and many pending issue remain and only these early release contains two cores currently 2048 and QuickNES. Which is likely to grow and a good gauge to base what is expected for the PS2 port, Would be to view the PSP as that should be a good baseline of what to expect and the PS2 may be able to handy more then the PSP likely.Continue reading
2018 - Year in Review: "Kernel Exploits, New Cryptographic Failures and a (tiny) new Console" [Poll]2018 is over and it was a very interesting Year, not only for you as a Gamer, but also for PSX-Place. We saw many Releases across all platforms, like several Kernel- and Web Exploits for the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita caught a strong year as well, especially back in December, but also the PS3 was still very popular with many updated Homebrew Releases for System Firmware 4.82 for instance. We also saw some newcomers like the PlayStation Classic, where everyone knows how bad Sony designed it and why we (the Homebrew-Community) has to fix it. But in case you missed something, this Article will give you an overview what happend so far in 2018 for the whole PlayStation-family. And to round things up, there is a small Poll you can find down below where you can vote for your favourite Console of last year. Every Vote is welcome.
But what will 2019 bring to you? It's still early to say but maybe Sony will satisfy the all Gamer who asks for a "PS5". But the PS4 is still a powerful machine don't you think? Maybe we will see a new Kernel Exploit for a higher System Firmware with the hope that it will lead into a proper Homebrew Community. But however the end result will be, we hope that you will stay faithful to our Community, so you won't miss any action in 2019. And speaking of that, we wish everyone a Happy New Year 2019 and may your dreams/wishes come true.Continue reading
