The Sony PSP, besides being able to run UMD-based games and downloaded software from Sony's PlayStation Network, can run a range of amateur-developed games and software from the Internet. One such piece of software allows the console to be used as an emulator for MS-DOS games, allowing vintage PC titles to be run on the portable machine. This opens the console up to a wide variety of older games, many of them freely available.
