I think this is a clue statement, preservation, only through emulators old games can be played again, its not like pc games that can be played on any pc with the appropiate tweaks. So yeah, lets call it preservation and nothing more.
Didn't DOSBOX get written because it had become impossible to run all those old DOS games on modern hardware?
Obsolescence is not the sole preserve of consoles - heck, even the switch from Windows XP to Vista/7 broke a lot of game compatibility.
Also, installing something like Discworld 2 (a first-generation Windows 95 game) that insists on overwriting your DirectX files with, say, DirectX 2 - not fun.
How well would the PS3 run DOSbox anyways? We have native USB HID support - that's great to have already with an emulator like that.

Somebody bring me the ZX Spectrum emulator and I'll be in heaven! Manic Miner here we come
FBA - would be the next BEST emulator port.
if you want XBMC that badly, there's a simple solution:
get coding already. I want to see it too, but I'm not going to post innuendo on a message forum that basically translates to: "Stop all work on console emulators, and get working on XBMC". That's not very nice now, isn't it?
We're not doing this stuff for anything else but our own amusement and personal gratification. If you get some use out of it, that's a bonus, but by no means a priority.
BTW - Halsafar is a member of the SNES9x PS3 team. So we're building up SNES9x as a foundational framework first - so that we could use some of the main code to port emulators with it.

Glad to see someone picked up my little side project. Sad to report that it is not quite ready yet. Progress is very good though. Also the idea is to keep the code base very similar to the snes one we are working on so it is easy to maintain.
I won't post much on the forums but I do read. I will of course post success when it is reached.
My PS3 has been collecting dust since MGS4. I'd be happy to "burn" it out with some actual use. My PSX still runs fyi and it was abused back in the day.
halsafar, thx for your work, i wait NES emu for PS3 for long time
Is your native language english? Or do you even read my complete post? Try rereading my original post and see the BEHIND you are making of yourself. Cheers.
I would really like an emulator for the sega dreamcast but i guess this too would be great just to have it run on the ps3. lol
