PS3SX - PSX Emulator PCSX Port for PS3 is Now Available!
Today an anonymous source released on PSGroove (linked above) a PSX emulator for PS3 entitled PS3SX, which is a port of PCSX to the PS3.
Download: PS3SX PSX Emulator Pre-Release / PSX BIOS File (Required) / SVN
To quote: It runs at full speed, full screen, and supports CDDA and XA audio. This pre-release also features 2 player support, saving, and iso formats *.iso *.bin *.mds *.img.
Currently the source code has not been released, but it will be once the emu is completely ported using just the PSL1GHT SDK. PS3SX will run on all retail 3.41 units (fat and slim). Currently it is untested on older firmwares and does not work on debug units (PS3 Test units).
Instructions: Install PKG file on PS3. Either use the folders from the rar file, or make "bios" "MC" and "psxrom" folders in the root of a USB drive. Download PSX bios file below, and place it in "bios" folder. Place legally owned PSX backup ISO's in the "psxrom" folder. Run emulator and play!
Please note there is currently a bug with this pre-release. You can only quit the emulator when running a game. If you attempt to exit to XMB at the rom menu, the emulator will freeze.

hanks to Talmagal for finding this out, but to avoid getting a black screen on load, the BIOS file must be named like this;
Finally, make sure the SCPH1001.bin is in the UPPERCASE.lowercase format.
More PlayStation 3 News...
wait what. the PS3 already support PS1 games Right or is it only the Fat one ??
Wow now i have something to play with tonight. Thanks to whoever is working on this.
Thanks for the news zeromx and +Rep!
AWESOME! That was quite the surprise.
awesome excuse to play ffvii again.
Here is a reference from wiki on the compatibility for ps1 and ps2 with the ps3...
All models support software emulation of the original PlayStation, but support for PlayStation 2 backward compatibility has continually diminished with later models and the last model to advertise integrated backward compatibility was the 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle. Compatibility issues with games for both systems are detailed in a public database hosted by the manufacturer.
All models, excluding the 20 GB model, include 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi. In addition to all of the features of the 20 GB model, the 60 GB model has internal IEEE 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi, multiple flash card readers (SD/MultiMedia Card, CompactFlash Type I/Type II, Microdrive, Memory Stick/PRO/Duo) and a chrome colored trim. In terms of hardware, the 80 GB model released in South Korea is identical to the 60 GB model released in the PAL regions, except for the difference in hard drive size.
Like the South Korean and European models, the North American 80 GB (2007) model also excludes the PlayStation 2 "Emotion Engine" CPU chip. However, it retains the "Graphics Synthesizer" GPU. Due to the elimination of the "Emotion Engine", the level of compatibility was reduced.
The 40 GB, 80 GB (2008) and 160 GB models have two USB ports instead of the four USB ports on other models and do not include multiple flash card readers, SACD support, or any backward compatibility with PlayStation 2 games. This was due to the removal of "Graphics Synthesizer" GPU, which stripped the units of all PlayStation 2 based hardware
Nice news and hopefully turns out well.
