With the arrival of countless Everdrive flash cards supplying cartridge based systems with a ROM loading solution, where does it leave the optical media driven consoles? Luckily enough a similar solution for the Sony PlayStation 1 is in development which would allow disc images (ISOs) to be booted up straight off an SD card.
Don't throw away your game discs just yet though. The promising Project PlayStation Input Output, or PSIO for short, is still very much a work in progress with little to show right now. That said though, the thought of being able to access a menu driven library of PlayStation 1 games off an SD card might just be reality in the near future. The Australian developers behind the project have already managed to load up technical demos and several games with their prototype hardware already via a USB CD drive.
As we await further updates from the PSIO team, we're left wondering who will step up to create a similar solution for the Sega Dreamcast.
