FPSe-Playstation Emulator for Android
Emulators are those software or hardware or both which can imitate the behavior or function of one system (e.g. Android) in another system (e.g. Windows) in such a way that their behavior closely resembles the original system. Emulation is the ability of a computer program in an electronic device (e.g. PC, Xbox etc.) to imitate (or emulate) another program or device. An emulator cannot perform exactly as the real system but it may be very useful to some extent. Also the behavior of an Emulator also depends on the hardware of the Host Computer (on which emulation takes place). If the hardware is inferior to that of the Guest Computer (of which emulation takes place) the programs related to the emulator may run slower. An emulator can run those programs of the Guest System on a Host System. Now-a-days different emulators are available.

Some examples are below:

1. Bluestacks App Player(Emulator of android for Windows)
2. Bluestacks App Player(Emulator of android for Mac)
3. KEmulator (Emulator of JAVA J2ME for Windows)
4. JBed (JAVA J2ME emulator for Android)
5. FPSe (Playstation emulator for Android)
6. FPSece (Playstation emulator for Windows Mobile)
