Playstation 1 Emulator in works for Wii - WiiSx

A number of coders including Emu_Kidid are working on a Playstation 1 emulator (a port of PCSX) which is compatible with the Wii and GC. Apparently, the emulator already runs some games at a "very playable speed" and the team promises that a public preview release should be available before the end of this year.

If you've heard rumors about a Sony Playstation 1 emulator being coded for the Nintendo Wii and Gamecube I'm here to tell you the rumors were true. Emu_kidid, Sepp256 and TehPola have been quietly working on a port of PCSX for both Nintendo consoles and I've been privileged with being able to test out their work in progress emulator.

Let me tell you, I'm impressed at how far they have come as the emulator can handle some games and runs at a very playable speed. Click on the replies link to see a video of the emulator in action and also to read an interview I conducted with Emu_Kidid about WiiSX.
