Hackers find “official,” usable PSP emulator hidden in PS4’s PaRappa | Ars Technica

"Unlocked PS4 consoles can now run copies of PS2 games Sometimes it seems that Sony itself is a PS4 hacker's best friend.", "In January, we wrote about how hackers were taking advantage of the system's built-in PlayStation Classics emulator to get arbitrary PS2 games running on unlocked hardware.", "Hacker Dark Element has also posted the apparent configuration files used by PaRappa's PSP emulator and promised that a user-friendly PSP package injector that works on unlocked PS4s is coming."

'Earlier this week, GBATemp user KiiWii posted his discovery that the PS4 game uses an in-built PSP emulator to run a copy of the 2007 PSP version of PaRappa rather than running new code specifically ported to the PS4. '

'Now, it seems a PSP emulator buried in a "remastered" PS4 release could provide a new way to get upscaled versions of the portable system's games running on your TV.The PS4 game in question is PaRappa the Rapper Remastered, a bare-bones, upscaled re-release of the '90s PlayStation rhythm game. '

It would nice to have the source code for this, or even just the source code for the original consoles. Such a shame companies don't release any code even for stuff that's 2 decades out of production, makes preserving classic titles that much harder.
