To quote, roughly translated: Well then apparently someone has the job of making a PS3 emulator for PC. An now is in the process (to not get excited) only a disassembler.
NOTE: Do not expect to launch a game or homebrew or anything, just are in test mode.
PlayStation 3 RPCS3 emulator open source to run on PCs with Windows OS. For now only a de-assembler PS3, although in recent deliveries have been able to implement ELF compiler.
List of Changes:
- Cleanup code
- Implemented DbgConsole (for sys_tty_write)
- Emulated PPUThreadGetStackInformation syscall

- interpreter: Found and emulated instructions. Fixed value sc.
- Removed pogina WikiFAQ wiki on the web.
- interpreter: Emulated instructions.
- ElfLoader: Fixed SetPc value.
- rpcs3: Fixed compilation errors for debug mode.
- rpcs3: Emulate some syscalls (system calls) File System. Re-writing mode MThread (now uses pthread 2.8.0) Re-written momoria administrator. Re-writing the store manager (ini). Log Marcos Main and keep their position and now tamano.size Added more opcodes. Fixed 'crash' if the frame Log / DISASM / Memory Viewer is closed. Implement OGL video mode.

More PlayStation 3 News...
i don't want more emulators i want a 3.60 jailbreak!! every day there is a new emulator. is that what they are wasting their time on? wtf???
what a crybaby.
Not even a NASA PC could run the PS3 Emulator hahaha
It really depends on the developer, some are interested in emulators and others jailbreaks or game managers, etc.
It's nice to have a variety of people with different interests working on the PS3, but keep in mind whoever releases the next PS3 JailBreak may become the next GeoHot with Sony taking legal action so that may be why few are willing to share one.
I agree with ROCHA160, for what those emulator, flagging, rebuging, some CFW that already exist, and so on... Brainiac!, Good morning, WakeUp guys, there is something to discover... or Sony put you all down and you guys, are so afraid to publish how to Jaibreak this console.
So, PLEASE STAND UP!, PLEASE STAND UP!, or let us know if you don't care.. so say we all, me and other few thousand!
You stop wasting your time and make a 3.60 Jailbreak. You seem to know what you're talking about.
Looks like a few of you here is missing the point - this is not "another emulator" - this suppose to emulate PS3 on PC (and not vice versa) and although I doubt it would ever reach the full capabilities not even mentioning the speed of actual PS3 the benefits are obvious - if you can "run" PS3 code on your own PC you have much more tools to debug it, poke around and find out how to crack the system and so on. So stop moaning and if you want something else - go and make it, nobody stops you if you think it's so simple
Nobody say that is simple and we all apreciated HARD WORK, when we see SOMETHING, and we are not missing any points, but our patience is hard to ignore. And don't forget CFW 3.66 is all that matter after that you may release what ever you want.
So are you saying that a functional PS3 emulator could assist in the development of CFW's?
