This is the only emulator for the mac that works well and supports almost all the games. Unfortuneately, Connectix sold the rights to Sony, which of course, promptly terminated the project. The last version is 1.4.1. I belive you have to have an ATI card to make it work. There are also patches available to simulate the "mod chip" so you can play burned games.

Quote from Press Release:
"Our new agreement with SCE gives us the resources to move rapidly into a wide range of exciting new applications for our core emulation and virtual machine technologies", said Roy McDonald, President of Connectix. "We believe that this collaboration can lead to improved development tools, innovative consumer products and productive enterprise solutions."
As part of the agreement the two companies have resolved all legal issues pertaining to Connectix Virtual Game Station (CVGS). For consideration, Sony Computer Entertainment will acquire from Connectix all assets related to the VGS emulation technology. Connectix will continue to offer the current version of both CVGS for Macintosh and Windows until June 30, 2001. Connectix will provide continuing support to existing users. All further emulation development for the PlayStation" game console will proceed under the auspices of the joint agreement.
Connectix resolved it's all legal issues by handing Sony their emulator and everything relating to it. June 30, 2001 was when Sony got the emulator, then terminted it. Indeed, Sony probably was getting a few sales ripped off from the emulator, and who would go up against Sony in a legal battle? Connectix didn't want to.
