    As the title suggests you know what the subject matter is.

    So far, cybdyn represents the official PSIO presence on this forum.

    Proof of this device in operation was requested, a forum member was picked and said device was supplied to RetroJunkie who has tested and uploaded the results for us all to see here.

    Discuss/enjoy ect...

    I wonder if they will be able to achieve 100% compatibility through the I/O port? I'm worried, specially with the audio.

    Whoops, wasn't subscribed to this thread, now I am!
    Managed to find some bench space, and fired up the old SCPH-5502 and PSIO for some testing.
    Rage Racer seems to work well, no background music - probably missing CD-XA audio, so expected since it isn't implemented yet!
    Crash Team Racing seems to work well.
    Crash Bash also seems to work well. Looks like you better put some cash aside for a PSIO then! :p
    I'll get some video up in the next few days of these ones in action.

    Edit: Just found a bunch of video I hadn't processed for earlier requests! Whoops! I'll get onto that as well :)

    Here's a question for all folk "in the know" about PSIO or Playstation in general

    As I assume all of you know its possible to run PS2 games from network
    what's so great is all my PS2's now have full access to my entire collection ^__^

    if possible I would like to do that with my PS1

    I know its early days for PSIO but is such a thing possible? Also have Mega Man Legends1/2 been tested yet?

    Some more video demos of the PSIO prototype hardware 1.1 are uploading as we speak:
    - Rage Racer
    - Crash Team Racing
    - Crash Bash
    - Crash Bandicoot

    - Star Ocean: The Second Story
    - Final Fantasy IX
    - Resident Evil

    - Tenchu: Stealth Assassins
    - Tekken 3 (using debug bootloader)


    Hasn't been tested by me yet, but I'll throw it on the (ever growing) list!

    Will let you know how we go! You do know I am terrible at racing games right - see Rage Racer above :p

    RetroJumanji? I'm not that bigger Robin Williams fan :D

    Ah bugger, ran out of time to fire up the PS1 today, won't be till Wednesday at the earliest now. Sorry!

    Shhh, shhhhh! Be careful calling me that! Call me RJ, McRetro, Shane or RetroJunkie ;)
    We don't want the original "retro" with his misplaced capital R coming in and storming the place ;P

    Haha, yes! Sorry about that, somehow I filed some 40GB on a USB hard drive I misplaced for a few weeks. My bad!
    However about Star Ocean, I liked the way it told the beginning of the story from each characters perspective!
    Did everything look like it was how it was supposed to be?

    Yeah I've only started the game as Claude ("cloud" or "clawed", haha) but everything seemed to play very well through the psio on your demo :)
