Dreamcast emulator crawling onto PSP

Tuesday, 29th July 2008 07:08 GMT By Patrick Garratt

We’re all for a portable Dreamcast, but, er, not like this. Joystiq brings word of a Dreamcast emulator for Sony’s power-packed portable, but kinks abound.

To put things in perspective, the emulator’s author, “drkIIRaziel,” recently released a video of the emulator running Shenmue at a framerate that would make paintings proud – with load times to match.

That’s not to say things won’t improve, but we’re not hedging out bets on this thing being playable any time soon. However, if you’re looking for a PSP version of headless Ryo Hazuki’s hill-climbing adventure, today’s your lucky day.

    Why? Why would anyone even try to do this? The PSP doesn’t have nearly enough juice to get anywhere NEAR a playable DC emulator. :-D

    Emulation is done because it’s out there to be done.

    Are we going to get proper emulation scene news now or just stuff that runs poorly on other consoles but allows the site to add a holy “dreamcast” tag to the story and get some nice metahits?
