How to Play Any PS1 Game on Your Own Android

PlayStation is one of the most popular gaming consoles in the world for 23 decades. The latest versions of this console offer an awesome gaming experience with high picture performances, but do you remember the very first PS games? If you felt some nostalgia and want for gambling when you've read these game titles, this article is for you.

In the present world, we're using smartphones with quite strong hardware components, capable of graphically intensive tasks. Why don't use them to do a little bit of retro gaming?

Here I shall present you the way you can play any PS1 game on your own Android. It's straightforward and easy, and it does not require a rooted apparatus.

Install PS1 EmulatorThe very first thing you need to do if you want to play PS1 games on your own Android would be to get PS1 Emulator. There are a couple PS1 emulators available on the Play Store, however, the top one according to me is the psx roms emulator. It's a paid program, but totally worth for the money. The ePSXe emulator is quite stable and runs the matches without any lag or stuttering. Click this link to download it, or simply search for the ePSXe emulator in the Play Store ePSXE Emulator.

Install Zarchiver

The following app you will need is Zarchiver. It's a program for archive management, and you'll use it to extract the compressed BIOS and match files. 

Download PS1 BIOS

The BIOS document is like an activation key for your emulator. Without the BIOS that your emulator will not work. As soon as you've got it configured and installed, you're good to go. For today, just download it from the next link PS1 BIOS. I recommend you picking the USA Download.

Download PS1 Games

Now it is time for you to download your favorite games. I've mentioned Emuparadise.com in one of my previous articles about playing NES games on your Android. You can check the article here if you are interested. But, Emuparadise is a superb place where you can find a whole lot of PlayStation Roms, here is your link to the website. But now, I'll present you another great location where you can find tons of PlayStation Roms — Roms-Download. com.

When you first open the page, click on the PlayStation link at the Consoles section. Then select the game you need to download. You can pick one in the most well-known games or browse the library by letter or genre to find your favourite games. Next click on the Download Now button and your download will start.

Configuring The Emulator

You have all the files ready, and now you need to configure them properly.

First, you may set up your BIOS and then your game. For the function open the Zarchiver and navigate to the folder where you downloaded the BIOS. Find the BIOS file (in my case it is known as SCPH1001.zip) and extract it. You can pick the third option of the menu, which will extract the files in the individual folder named as your selected file.

Next, you need to extract your game with the same procedure. Chose the file title (in my instance, it's a CRT — Crash Team Racing.7z) and extract it into a separate folder. That is it, you have just finished the extracting procedure.

Open your ePSXe Emulator and select Run Bios. 

After it finishes, click Run Game and select the .bin file in the folder in which you've extracted the match files earlier. With the last step, you've started your game. Enjoy your favourite game startup animation. I am pretty sure that it will make you grin. 

Playing with PlayStation games is always fun and enjoyable, but playing the first PS1 games will make you experience exceptional feelings. Pick your favourite childhood game and give it a try, you'll be amazed.
