PCSX was a PlayStation emulator from the late 2000s, it allows you to play PlayStation games on a PC even without the original disks games can usually be downloaded from the internet, and the amount of games available is shocking. Some of the features of the software include Disk tray opening and closing for games that require it from the in-game menus, makes it very easy.
PCSX has a widescreen hack in the CPU options that work for 3D games to fill your monitor screen better. Controller plugin supports so you can game with a vintage controller.
Ease of use and FREE
The program allows me to easily access the games from my childhood that I find the most nostalgic. The program which doesn’t tax an average laptop or PC to run at all is user-friendly, and the constant stream of updates from the admin keeps the program running smooth and bug-free, which is uncommon in the emulator software market. Most programs are buggy messes of software, while this looks like an excellent professional program. I was easily able to find the game file for crash bandicoot one of my favorite early PlayStation games. I can load it right up, play the game and make saves just as if I was playing on the original PlayStation console. Everything is saved to your computer’s internal memory, and the files are tiny. The program for me was free along with the games, so it’s also a very affordable gaming option for anyone, and with controller connection options, it’s easy to have a full-blown PlayStation console at home for free. A few drawbacks to the program are lack of some of the later games and the occasional system freeze or crash caused by the program not responding, but that is very rare and easy to fix.
Overall this is an excellent program for anyone who wants to play those nostalgic PS games.
