Pac-Man (Arcade Original) on the Sony PlayStation / PSOne / PS1 / PSX

One for the aficionados of the pill popping, ghost busting beachball with a mouth (I always preferred Amidar, but that's just me!).

Question  Can I play arcade original Pac-Man on the PSOne (and hence PSP, PS2 and PS3) ?

Answer  Yes Sir. You surely can.

You have two options here: Official and Homebrew.

Namco Museum: Volume 1 - A collection of 6 arcade originals including Toy Pop, Rally-X and New Rally-X, Pole Position, Bosconian, Galaga and.. PAC-MAN!

PS1 MAME - If you enjoy playing games in slow motion, you could try playing the original rom set on PS1 MAME. Expect it to run at about quarter of the original speed though.

And that's as much as can be said. However this is a pretty short post, so here is a list of other Pac-Man related games that you can also play on the PSOne:

Namco Museum: Volume 2 - Super Pac-Man  On PAL and US releases only.

Namco Museum: Volume 3 - Ms Pac-Man

Namco Museum: Volume 4 - Pac-Land

Namco Museum: Volume 5 - Pac-Mania

Pac-Man World: 20th Anniversary

Ms Pac-Man: Maze Madness

I'm bound to have missed something here.. so please comment if there is more to add and I'll update as necessary.
