PCSX-Reloaded is a PSX Emulator for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. It is a continuation of the two previous PSX Emulation project, PCSX and PCSX-DF. PCSX-Reloaded has jumped over several different development teams over the years with PCSX-Reloaded being the current main version of the emulator. Recent version’s of PSX-Reloaded have appeared to of abandoned the PC builds of the emulator with primary focus now seemingly to be on the Mac OS X and Linux versions of the emulator.
It is considered one of the biggest competitors to ePSXe, however unlike ePSXe, PCSX-Reloaded is open source, allowing anyone to pick up the code and improve on it. PCSX-Reloaded’s emulation is regarded as about on-par with that of ePSXe. While being a somewhat accurate the main focus of PCSX-Reloaded is to maintain a great compatibility while providing fast emulation speeds. PCSX also attempts to emulate the functionality of the PSX Bios, however it is very much a work in progress and doesn’t provide the same level of compatibility as the actual bios files yet.
PCXS-Reloaded also uses the same plugin specifications of ePSXe, allowing it to make use of the exact same plugins that ePSXe uses. This is a good thing as it ensures that certain features like the graphic plugins will have a continue focus on developing them further.
