PSP Mod Allows for Mouse Support

May 5, 2009Written by Kyle P.

For all those who enjoy using a mouse to gun down your enemies, you’re in luck. Noted PSP hacker, TokyoDrift, has created a mod for the PSP, that allows for the user full use of a PC mouse.

What’s interesting is that TokyoDrift didn’t use USB to connect the mouse. Instead, he used an old PS/2 mouse, in which he connected to the PSP’s serial port. All of the functionality of the mouse works, even allowing for button-mapping.

Of course, the usefulness of this mod will vary from game-to-game. However, it is a neat idea and just goes to show that the PSP isn’t as mobile as some would think.
