Your PC will not run the Playstation CDs. Period.

(The playstation uses a completely different processor family, in addition to different hardware design around that processor. You can't run Windows software on a Playstation either, for the same reasons. It used to be possible to boot a version of Linux on a playstation, but (a) that requires software compiled specifically for that environment, and (b) Sony decided to lock people out of that option, something many people are still angry about.)

Adding to orksecurity, no, you can't run Play Station CDs on a PC. You *can,* however, play the games *without* a CD on your computer, more commonly known as emulating.

Remember, downloading the games to your computer without owning them is *stealing,* and is illegal, so only download games you have already bought.

You can connect game controllers to your pc. Then I guess you could get an emulator for your favorite games (they are legal if you own the game).
