Portable consoles are the in thing once again thanks to the release of Nintendo Switch, that hybrid halfway between a handheld console and a desktop console that intends to make itself a name on the mobile leisure market dominated smartphones as of lately.

And among that were the rage, we have to point the PSP that's no longer made because it was replaced by the PlayStation Vita, but it still has millions of fans all over the world who continue enjoying its game and that can now do so from the desktop of their macOS thanks to the emulator PPSSPP.

The best way to play PSP games on your computer

Well, not only on your computer, because apart from the Windows and Mac versions, there's also a version for Android mobile devices, although not for iOS. In any case, here we're discussing the version for Apple desktop computers on which you'll be able to run the ROMs of this legendary console once you download the application.

When it comes to installing them, you'll have to search on Google because they're not included in this download. You'll find them in CSO format on different websites. Just download them to the folder when you've got the emulator and load them from the program's menu.

Install games from Sony's video console on your Mac and play them on a large screen.
