Play PSP games like Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII in VR, but only if you have an Oculus Rift

The promise of virtual reality gaming, shopping, porn and just about anything else might be just around the corner, but you can already enjoy some of your favorite PlayStation games in virtual reality if you have an Oculus Rift Dev Kit 2 lying around.

Available to download now, PPPSSPP VR emulates classic PSP games to bring you a higher-resolution version than the original game. Add in the re-rendered geometry and stereoscopic 3D support for games and you’re in for a totally different PSP experience.

According to RoadtoVR, it even includes head-tracking and pre-warping. I don’t even know what that is, but I’m pretty sure it’s a good thing.

So, kudos 2EyeGuy, you’ve likely made a lot of people very happy.

If you expect it to work perfectly with every game, then you’d probably be best re-aligning your expectations, as you’ll likely still come across a few issues here and there.

Judging from the Final Fantasy demo video above though, it’s certainly worth checking out if you have an Oculus.
