    Hi everybody. Just today I saw my old Ps1, and had moment of nostalgia. I have the Wii hooked up on the TV and it's a hassle to unplug it and plug the Ps1 in. My point, would it be possible to hook up my Ps1 to my macbook, and play the old games using my macbook as a screen? If there's any cables I need to buy please tell me, and be as specific as possible. Also, if this is not possible, are there any Ps1 emulators that would play my games if I put them in my macbook? Thanks!

    Not possible in the way you want. You could get a video input USB device, but the delay would make it useful for PS1.
    Buy a $20 switch so you can plug your ps1 and wii and whatever into the switch and just hit the button to change which one goes on to the TV.
