Play PlayStation games on your BlackBerry PlayBook

If you're feeling a bit nostalgic today and have already exhausted your SNES skills, why not try out some PlayStation games on your BlackBerry PlayBook? Thanks to forums member Catalystg the PlayStation emulator dubbed PCSX-ReARMed-PB is ready to roll. While it still has a few quirks, the emulator looks to be running pretty well for the most part so far. You'll be on your own when it comes to loading it up and finding some games to play, but you can hit up the forum thread below for help and more discussion. Anyone up for a little Crash Bandicoot?

Play PlayStation games on your BlackBerry PlayBook


I've been waiting to hear what the rumored partnership was. When I saw the title I almost sh*t myself thinking this was the news lol.

okaie im a total noob at this :( , but would any1mind posting a video of how to do the whole thing. . . . . . that would be just great !!! havent played crash bandicoot for 10 years.....

That is great. I am currently installing playbooks into my SUV back seats for the kids. My plan will be to put a PS 3 in the rear entertainment center for game playing as well as watching blu ray. As well I will be putting in a booster for web surfing and such. I already have wireless headphones installed and working. Just a few more tweeks. I will post when all the bugs are worked out, and mounting is complete and finished with proper matching trim ect.

That's a great idea putting PlayBooks on the headrest! The video quality alone is awesome not to mention they're cheaper than buying the screen only. Add to that the capabilities the PlayBook has...nuff said!

I downloaded the PCSX emulator and the SCPH1001 BIOS, followed the instructions to install them, but no matter what game ISOs I download and install, none of them will play. The emulator runs the BIOS screens just fine, so I know it is doing something, but every game I try just hangs at a blank screen, no logos, no loading messages, nothing. Is there some trick I'm missing?

Nevermind, I found the solution. The file extensions of the ISOs *must* be capitalized (downloaded as xxx.bin and xxx.cue, rename to xxx.BIN and xxx.CUE), and you have to select the .BIN file from the menu, the .CUE file is also shown but does not play when selected.

Actually, if the .cue extension is in lower case while the .BIN extension is in upper case, the ROM Selector will only show you the .BIN file!
