Henrik Rydgård has released new version (PPSSPP 1.0) of excellent PSP emulator for PC, tablets and Android that lets you run a lot of titles (well, at least the few which are available on PSP) and can play them with graphical implementations as filters additional textures, shader post processing effects and other improvements, either Direct3D or OpenGL.

PPSSPP is considered the best emulator for Playstation Portable and lets you enjoy the best classic PSP games at high resolutions and controls upgrades. It is a good opportunity to play games at 1080p resolution like God of War: Chains of Olympus , Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars , Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, Tekken: Dark Resurrection , Wipeout Pure or Ultimate Ghosts ‘n Goblins.
