Ever want to play XCOM on the go? I modified a Sony PlayStation 1 version of the original X-COM and transferred it to my Sony PSP.
It's a kind of a pain without a mouse, but it works with the buttons (obviously). It also plays the CD music version so THAT's a plus.

Here's the pics, enjoy.

Two questions come to mind:
  • How did you go about porting it over, and
  • How does the game handle saves in the portable version
Other than that, cool stuff! :)

Sure, well to answer your first question.

I downloaded a program called Popstation gui, It's basically a .bin to boot converter, Which means it changes the format from .bin and converts it to an .ISO

Secondly, saves work just like any PlayStation save, it creates a digital mem card and reads when you load. I don't know if there's an auto-save, but this game literally plays like the PC version, saves and all. It also doesn't have that pesky difficulty bug.
