How to Download a PSP game
After downloading and installing the emulator app on your android phone, the next step is to download any PSP game of your choice. Remember that even after downloading and installing the emulator app you won’t find any PSP game that comes with it.
To get your very first PSP game, you must know that .ISO or .CSO are the only files that are compatible to play a PSP game on a PPSSPP android emulator. The reason why am saying this is because sometimes you might come across some PSP games that come in ZIP or RAR format and not in .ISO or. CSO format. So, you will have to unzip or uncompressed the PPSSPP game file using a file extractor app such as ZArchiver, Xplore, WinRAR and many more.
