Playstation on iPhone

One independent software developer is hard at work on a Sony Playstation emulator for iPhone, which will allow iPhone owners to play original Sony Playstation games on Apple's cellular handset. The author says the software will support both the iPhone and iPod touch, and that a beta testing stage is due to arrive in the near future that will allow users who donated money to receive a pre-release test version.

Separately, the creator of the iMatrix 2d code recognition program for iPhone has added a feature that allows users to export contacts from Address Book to iMatrix. The update can instantly jump to code view for the last exported contact, according to, making it possible to transfer contacts from one iPhone to another as easily as exchanging photos.

    nice idea

    Well if they can get this to work then count me in. Lara Croft and Actual Soccer on the move sounds great.

    But i dont see how a two finger touch screen sensor will emulate the four buttons, joystick and two shoulder buttons on the PS controller :-(
