Top PSP Games You Can Play on Android in 2023
The PlayStation Portable (PSP) was such an iconic and innovative handheld for its time. The console sold over 80 million copies worldwide but it also suffered from a lack of games, unable to compete with the humongous amount of first-party titles that the Nintendo DS had. However, Sony decided to bring in several big-name titles like the God of War series and the Grand Theft Auto series which provided countless hours of handheld gaming for many fans. Currently, you can run these iconic games on your Android Devices using emulators like PPSSPP, Lemuroid, RetroArch, etc. Let’s take a look at some of the best PSP games that you can run in 2023.

Top PSP Games on Android in 2023
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
Players are put in the shoes of Corporal Victor Vance, serving in the US Army. He turns to a life of crime, initially with the intention of raising money for his ailing brother, Pete. Eventually, he finds himself in conflict with rival gangs, mob bosses, and druglords. The game was initially launched in 2006 for the PSP but it still holds up well for a game running on an emulator.
Assassin’s Creed Bloodlines
This game’s storyline is the only connecting factor between the first Assasin’s Creed and Assasin’s Creed 2. The game takes place after a few months following the events of the first game. Altair, who is now a mentor to the brotherhood, attempts to stop the templars from regrouping at Cyrus. This game cuts the chase quite short as it only takes six to eight hours to complete. Regardless of that, the game provides players with a memorable handheld Assasin’s Creed experience.
Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands
This 2010 action adventure from Ubisoft provided players with a 3D platformer-style gameplay for the PSP. It featured fluid mechanics and intuitive controls for the PSP. Look no further if you are looking for an arcade-style Prince of Persia game to play on the go.

Chains of Olympus is one of the most acclaimed titles released for the PSP.
