The Sony PSP portable video game system can be used to play games designed for PSP, obviously, and downloaded games originally designed for PlayStation and PS2. The machine can also be used to run unofficial programs that will allow other games to run on it. One such program is Daedalus X64, the only Nintendo 64 emulation program for the PSP. By installing Daedalus X64 on your PSP, you can turn the machine into a portable Nintendo 64 games console.

Tips and warnings
- Don't download ROM files from sites that aren't compliant with ESA (Entertainment Software Association) protections. These files may be illegal to play on your PSP unless you own the original game. Check for a site's ESA compliance in the site's "About Us" section or by contacting the person who maintains the site.
