Play using a PSP with FuSa Gamepad [EN]

Sergio Esaú Arámbula Durán edited this page Dec 8, 2018 · 3 revisions

With a custom firmware such as the pro CFW and ME CFW, and thanks to the natural flexibility of the PSP and the semi open hardware with the help of FuSa gamepad (a homebrew app for the PSP) you can get one of the best SNES gamepads for your Raspberry Pi

What we need?

  • A PSP model 1xxx 2xxx or 3xxx (models 2xxx & 3xxx preffered)
  • A 1GB+ memory stick pro duo
  • A mini USB to USB A cable
  • A custom firmware (Pro or ME / LME)
  • A PC or your Pi to transfer the files over SAMBA
  • The FuSa gamepad app

How to get started

Downliad the FuSa gamepad zip and then turn your PSP on with your memory stick allready inside your console and if it is a model 3000 or go run your CFW (older models do not need to run it because those models allready boots with the CFW loaded) plug your USB cable to your PSP and PC now uncompress your zip inside > /PSP/GAMES/ and safely unplug it from your PC, now run the app and connect it to your pi, the screen of your PSP should be turned off but the power LED should stay lighted

Recomended layout

For a consistent experience inside and outside Emulationstation includibg in Kodi and all the ReteoArch cores and because all the PS gamepads in Japan uses the same layout as a SNES gamepad but with diferent symbols I suggest use this buttons map plus my little suggestion for the volume buttons and the home button inside Kodi

PSP layout


  • The PSP street is not supported
  • If your PSP is in a good condition, this is much better than a generic controller or a 360 gamepad. The buttons are really responsive and the D Pad ideal for retro gaming
  • The pi is NOT capable to fully charge a PSP
  • The volume buttons do not work in emulationstation or RetroArch
  • You can access to a more in depth configuration in the FuSa's ini files
