PSIO is a flash cartridge which plugs into your PlayStation “Parallel I/O” Port. It allows you to instantly see your games running from an SD Card on real hardware which can be selected from our Menu System.

You understand that in order for PSIO to work with your system, a Switch Board needs to be installed on your mainboard. If you require this to be done for you, please see our "Mainboard Modification Service". Please also note that PSIO will not work on systems without a “Parallel I/O” port.
