Name Description
FlareStorm FlareStorm is a Playstation emulator for Macintosh. There is no readme file. This version is a large core improvement over the previous version which is now discontinued. The emulator itself is stable, however, compatibility has dropped since the previous version. It however, no longer requires the PSX BIOS to run. Definitely one to watch.
PCSX PCSX is a port of the Windows Playstation emulator of the same name. Compatibility is decent so far being based on PCSX, but the port itself being new it
still has some bugs to work out. This is definitely one to watch if you're a Mac using fan of the PSX. A compatibility list can be found here.
PCSX-Reloaded PCSX-Reloaded is a PlayStation emulator based on PCSX-df, both of which are ultimately based on the now discontinued PCSX. PCSX-Reloaded improves on PCSX in several areas and should now be considered a solid competitor to ePSXe and pSX.
PSMac PSMac is another good playstation emulator for Macintosh. It doesn't have the speed of The Pi, but it runs some demos that The Pi does not.
The Pi The Pi is the fastest Playstation emulator for Macintosh in the public domain. It runs many demos and some homebrewn games.
Virtual Game Station VGS was the second commercial PSX emulator to be released. Instead of trying to improve the performance of a game, VGS just strives to make it work. Thus there are no added features over the PSX, but VGS does run more smoothly than Bleem. The demo version of this emulator was released recently, and is crippled to a degree like Bleem. Normally, when you got the full registered version you can save your games, get 2 player support, and Game Pad support. However, this has all changed since Sony bought out Connectix. You can no longer buy VGS from them. Enjoy the demo, it still works, but you won't be able to save. The link will take you to Connectix's news blurb about how they will still support current owners of VGS until 12/31/01. Also note that VGS will NOT run in OS X even in the Classic environment, you have to boot into OS 9 if you want to run it.
