|Portable Sound Format|
Portable Sound Format (PSF) is an audio format used for storing PlayStation and PlayStation 2 audio data. Neill Corlett created the format in 2002. PSF originally stood for PlayStation Sound Format, but since numerous projects have used the format as a base platform (GSF, SSF, USF, etc.), it has been renamed to Portable Sound Format.
PSF soundtracks are distributed in a set of files. Individual songs are stores as .minipsf files which contain the notes of the music, and the .psflib file contains the instrument data.

All games released for the PlayStation can have their music ripped to PSF format.
How to Obtain
Ripping PSF files is complicated, but luckily, most PlayStation games already have their sound ripped to PSF format and can be downloaded from the following sites:
- psf.joshw.info - Josh W (individually 7Z archived, lots of intermixed MP3 rips).
- zophar.net/music/psf.html - Zophar's PSF archive (out of date).
