The PlayStation One remains one of the most popular video game systems of all time, with over 100 million units sold worldwide. Chances are if you bought a PlayStation One when it first released, it conked out on you awhile back. Lucky for you, computers can be used to emulate dozens of video game systems (including the popular PlayStation) without setting up the video game console. As long as you own PlayStation One CD-ROMs, you can play PlayStation One video games on your laptop wherever you please.
