    RPCS3 PS3 Disassembler / Emulator for PC Boots Commercial Games

    Following up on the previous revision and update news, Poetic.Injustice reports that the RPCS3 PS3 Disassembler / Emulator for PC now boots some commercial PlayStation 3 games including Disgaea 3 and Arkedo Series 02: Swap with details below.

    Download: RPCS3 PS3 Disassembler / Emulator for PC Update / rpcs3 0.0.0.2.7z / GIT

    To quote: RPCS3 is a New PS3 Emulator, Still In Early Stage, Boots Commercial Game #1

    We know that a lot of you want to get your hands on a PS3 emulator. Well, that day may come sooner than expected, as a team of developers is currently working on a PS3 emulator that is able to boot a commercial game.

    In the realm of emulation land, this is huge. Yes, this is laggy and buggy but the fact that an emulator can boot a commercial PS3 game is HUGE. The name of the emulator is RPCS3 and you can view a video from it running a commercial game below. Enjoy!




    Wow, this is huge news! It'll be years before we get something playable, but it's a start.

    New video showing the game running much better.




    Disgaea 3 also showing some results. This is a test on the last revision of RPCS3. It requires to manually unpack a edat file and extract some firmware files into the /dev_flash/ folder. If you feel the desperate need to claim this is fake, please go away.

    Video: RPCS3 PS3 Emulator - Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign Ingame

    Following up on the previous updates, PlayStation 3 developer B1ackDaemon shared an RPCS3 (PS3 Emulator) WIP video via YouTube which shows footage of commercial PS3 game Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign running with details below.

    To quote: "YouTube’s ‘B1ackDaemon’ has released a new video from RPCS3 – the most promising PS3 emulator that is currently under development – that shows in-game footage from Voodoo Chronicles: The First Sign.

    And while there is no doubt that there is still a lot of work to be done, it’s really cool witnessing the baby steps of this emulator."




    Finally, from the video's caption: Notes: tested on latest rpcs3 commit b98b3241e7 (GIT). Have some graphics issues, like missing texts in dialogs. To run game on Rpcs3 you need to replace key.edat file with decrypted one.

    PC configuration: Core i5-760 2.8@3.5GHz, 6Gb DDR3-1333, GeForce GTX 470, Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64.

    Update: The PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 can now play over 20 commercial PS3 games, with an updated video and details below (via reddit.com/r/Games/comments/2msdbu/in_the_time_since_ps3_emulator_rpcs3_came_into/) as follows:

    Note: To run games on RPCS3 you need to replace key.edat file with a decrypted one.

    Update #2: Finally, from PlayStation 3 developer AlexAltea (via zecoxao) comes Nucleus - A W.I.P. PS3 emulator with details below, as follows:

    Download: nucleus-master.zip / GIT

    Nucleus, a one-man-army PS3 emulator

    So, in case you haven't seen checked out this emulator, it is currently being developed by my friend AlexAltea. You can check its original github link here: github.com/AlexAltea/nucleus

    The novelty of this is that it's being developed by one person ONLY, however that person could already run several tests on it flawlessly.

    Probably in a space of 2-3 weeks you'll see the first RSX sample being run on it, because Alex would be finishing developing a backend for it (something in OpenGL/DirectX).
