    Standalone Prince of Persia PS3 PKG File for Custom Firmware Out

    Today NEO117 has made available a standalone Prince of Persia PS3 PKG and homebrew files to run the 1989 game on PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware without the use of an SNES emulator along with Street Rod and Street Rod 2 and more updates below.

    Download: Standalone Prince of Persia (1989) PS3 PKG Files / Standalone Prince of Persia (1989) PS3 PKG Files (Updated Graphics) / Street Rod PS3 PKG File / Street Rod 2 PS3 PKG File / Caesar PS3 PKG File

    I have tested it and can confirm that it works 100%. Give it a go as its a great game and runs completely smooth.

    To quote: I just compiled this PKG with the very first Prince of Persia ready to play on your PS3. Enjoy it.

    NOTE: I tested it and found no problems, however if you do find any issue please let me know by PM or on this thread. Thank you.

    I simply Used the fail0verflow tools and the Dosbox port for PS3. Nothing too hard. Btw, I updated the download. There's another PKG for the Homebrew category if you have it, and it has SND0.AT3 now.

    Street Rod 1 and 2 for PS3: This was requested and so I decided to go for it. Should you find any issues please let me know.

    Again, this has 2 PKGs, one for the regular "Game" category, and one for the "Homebrew" category should you have it.

    Update: Well, I got a little bored tonight and decided to go for something a bit different. Here's a small treat to you guys. The classic Prince of Persia with updated backgrounds and characters.

    I want to say that I do not take credit in anyway for the enhanced graphics, these belong to the guys at Princed who made an incredible work in this department. I did put them in the game permanently and compiled the PKG though.

    I also want to say that I ran into A LOT of bugs when doing this. I think I managed to fix them but should you find anything that went over my gaze please let me know. Also you're gonna have to tinker a bit with the mappings if you want to play with a keyboard (for whatever reason...) however it works just fine with the controller. Also, this release will work 100% fine in the PC using Dosbox, it's the PS3 that gave me issues... so I had to do a lot of trial and error before I got it down.

    With all this said, here are some screenshots and of course, the link to download it. (above)

    I managed to make it run, however being a simulator I couldn't really map the controls. So I'd recommend using Keyboard/Mouse for this one, however you CAN use the DS3 in Mouse mode.

    Caesar 2 crashed and Pirates worked at first and then froze for some reason. I'll try those tomorrow morning, right now I'm dead tired.

    Do you fancy firing up your nes emulator, giving Prince Of Persia a quick play, then try the ps3 pkg and see if either is noticibly better?

    Seems like I made a mistake, this was a SNES game, my bad.

    Anyways the graphics are much better using the SNES emulator but they both have the same gameplay.

    I think that's clever. Way to go. And I'd tell you where to get reliable roms but I'm pretty sure I am not allowed to link to rom sites. lol
