How to play PS1 games on Android using DuckStation Emulator.

In this era of advanced and powerful digital technologies you no more have to go outside to communicate with people and do physical works as with the entry of smartphones now you can do almost all physical works from single screen using modern and advanced smartphones that we have in 21st century.

Especially, people and most gamers stopped playing outside games as due to busy life style so majority of people now a days replacing outside games with digital games that we get on smartphones, PCs, and popular home gaming consoles like Nintendo, Sony PlayStation etc in thier own comfortable space.

Eventhough, games from home gaming consoles like Sony PlayStation are more advanced with pretty high graphics then any device yet people like to play digital games on smartphones over video games from home gaming consoles because people can carry smartphones and play games with finger tips that is user friendly and smartphones are available on market at 1/10 price of home gaming consoles.

Anyhow, Nintendo used to rule the market of home video game consoles until Sony a well known japanese electronic company started releasing thier own home gaming consoles with high graphic video games that are more popular and capable then any other home gaming consoles due to that Sony PSP series even surpassed sells of Nintendo several times.

Sony released number of home gaming consoles since the launch of first orginal PlayStation known as PS1 on Dec 3, 1994 like PS2, PSP, PS3, PS4 and latest version is PS5 even though all 5 of them are Sony home gaming console lineup yet you can't play one home console games on another thus in case if you want to play all games of PS1 to PS2 then you have buy of them which are really expensive.

However, as we said earlier the entry of smartphones in mobile market drastically reduced the sells of home game consoles as people preffering smartphone games over home console games and today only hardcore gamers are interested in buying home video gaming consoles but there are some people who want to play home video console games on smartphones that feat is not possible a decade back because of different hardware and software limitations.

But, when a developer named Henrik Rydgard released PPSSPP a emulator to play Sony PSP games on Android powered smartphones since then numerous video game emulators created and released by developers around the world due to them we can play almost all games of any home gaming console on smartphones powered by mobile operating systems like Google's Android and Apple's iOS etc.

Most emulators created to play home console games also known as video games on smartphones are unofficial as companies usually don't create official emulators for smartphones as it will drop sells of thier home gaming consoles and using this unofficial emulators is illegal as  people have to first download video game aka rom pirated version from internet to load it on thier unofficial emulators.

Unofficial emulators are created by third party developers who don't have any association with home game console makers thus they won't get any support from companies due to that third party developers have to do alot of hardwork and has to go through alot of things to build hardware and software compatible unofficial emulator and that takes time which is why unofficial emulators stay at 
early access or beta phase even being open source projects on GitHub or GitLab etc.

Fortunately, we have many best unofficial emulators to play Sony PlayStation games on Android like PPSSPP emulator for PSP, AetherSX2 Emulator for PS2 and recently I found another cool and amazing unofficial Emulator named DuckStation by using that you can play all video games of Sony PS1 on Android OS for free.

Here, it is evident the development of unofficial emulators for Sony PlayStation is slow and rare for example : PPSSPP emulator released 10 years back to play Sony PSP games and now in year 2021 we got AetherSX2 for PS2 and DuckStation for PS1 games including that there is not even one unofficial emulator to play PS3, PS4, PS5 games on Android as of now but they will be available in future.
