$115 USD is expensive to you for such an amazing product? No, you can't emulate the CD-ROM via an Arduino or Pi. lol.
Development Console: SCPH-5502 with 8MB RAM, MM3 Modchip, PAL 60 Colour Modification (for NTSC), DB-9 breakout headers for both RGB and Serial output and an Xplorer with CAETLA 0.34.

Development Computer: Windows 98, Pentium 3 [400MHz], 128MB SDRAM, DTL-H2000, DTL-H201A, 21" Sony Trinitron CRT, CD-ROM burner, 3.25" and 5.25" Floppy Diskette Drives and a ZIP 100 Diskette Drive.

Arduino isnt powerfull enough, RaspberryPi probably neither. especialy the IO output. Maybe if you take the ALTERA Cyclone 3 FPGA and add it to your RaspberryPi you might be able to put out the right IO with speed and accuracy. but basicly youll be reworking the PSIO and the price ;)
Raspberry can do 22Mhz in C. not sure if you can get Audio and Data out that fast tho. your basicly reinventing a wheel here.
(I dont own a PSIO and I am not affiliated with the makers of it. If I would want to make such device, I would either just buy a PSIO (preorder) or ... try it myself with an fpga.. price...)
Development Console: SCPH-102, unkown clone Modchip, PAL , FTDI board build into the case (microUSB) for Serial I/O.
Development Computer: GNU/Linux, Arch x86_64 Linux 4.20.3, i7-3632QM [8x3.2GHz], 11,8GiB, 1366x768 GeForce GT 630M (Optimus tech), lots of gig of storage
