Are you a game lover looking for means to play console games on your android or PC? Most gamers have at some point in time come across a psp game console, which is a miniature and mobile version of the playstation 2 game. Ppsspp on the other hand is the mobile version of the gaming console with a PC version as well. In this post, you will learn how to download a ppsspp game for free on android and PC.

PPSSPP games are enjoyed by anyone with an interest in gaming. It comes with a pretty decent quality that gives one the impression as though they are gaming on the regular console. The best part about it is that the PPSSPP app on its own is not a large application, typically 20mb in size. However, in order to play a game on the mobile ppsspp gaming console, you will need to download the raw game file. 

Let’s say you want to play a football game, you will need to download the football game file and open it from the app in order to launch the football game. You can download as many game files as you desire, the only downside is you will run out of storage space due to the fact that the game files are large in nature. The game files are cross-platform as well, meaning you only need to download a game once and it will work on both android and PC.

How to run PSP games in PPSSPP?

You need to have your PSP games as .CSO or .ISO files. I do not have the right to distribute those with the app, so you’ll have to provide them on your own. To convert your real PSP games for use with PPSSPP, you need to install a “Custom Firmware” on your PSP. Google for that. Then follow these steps:

  • Insert the UMD into your PSP.
  • Connect your PSP to your PC with a USB cable.
  • At the PSP main menu, press Select. In the menu that pops up (only on Custom Firmware), choose UMD as USB Device.
  • Still, in the PSP menu, choose USB Connection in the Settings menu (to the left).
  • On your PC, a folder will pop up, containing a virtual ISO file. To copy the game to your PC, simply drag this to somewhere on your hard drive and the copy will start. Done!
  • There are tools to burn ISO files into CSO (compressed ISO) files to save space, such as maxcso by [Unknown] .

If you have digital downloads on your real PSP, they can be used directly on PPSSPP. Just copy the EBOOT.PBP over. Note that this has not been tested as much as ISO loading so there may still be issues with some games.


Although the ppsspp is nowhere near the regular Play Station in terms of video graphics, ppsspp offers quite decent graphics considering it is on a mobile platform. Another thing to note is that the game may sometimes be slow when played on a mobile device and may crash from time to time. I am a huge fan of ppsspp BTW. In a future post, I will share the best ppsspp games to download in 2020 with relevant download links
