These are emulators that are officially created by Sony Corporation.

Emulators on PSP[edit]

PlayStation One Portable Station (POPS):

PS1 emulator for PSP, for playing PS1 Classics off PS Store. Use POPSLoader with CFW to use.

Emulators on Android[edit]

PlayStation Pocket:

PS1 emulator bundled with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. It partially depends on hardware emulation, so it's not compatible with other phone models. It was meant to only work with select titles sold on the official web store, but it took less than a year for an injector to emerge. Emulation accuracy is mid-tier at best and the injector only works with single-track games, although multi-track games are theoretically possible.

Emulators on Vita[edit]

PSP mode. You can also run PSP version of POPS through this using VHBL and POPSLoader.

PlayStation One Portable Station (POPS-Vita):

PS1 emulator for Vita, for playing PS1 Classics off PS Store. This seems to be a port of PSP's POPS loader, even using some POPS modules

with PSP mode.[1]

Emulators on PS2[edit]

PlayStation One Portable Station (SLBB-00001):

PS1 emulator for PS2 internal and USB HDD. Install POPStarter on FreeMcBoot to use. Developed by SCEI, it was published by Konami as DLC for BB Unit owners, and came with (and locked to only play) the game ビシバシスペシャル3.[2]
