The developer of the first Playstation emulator for Google Android is back, with version 2. The new app adds a framerate counter option and automatic frameskipping to make games play more smoothly. The developer recommends only running psx4droid v2 on phones with 60MHz or faster processors.

The new app is on sale for $1.99 for a limited time. The original app is still available from the Android Market for $5.99 — and the developer is not offering a free upgrade to the new version, so if you want the latest bug fixes, you’re going to need to pony up a few bucks. The developer says the reason for the new version is that save states from the old emulator aren’t compatible with the new app.

Keep in mind, the emulator requires a valid PlayStation BIOS file to run properly. If you don’t know what that means, you might want to check out a set of step by step instructions for using psx4droid from xda-developers.
