February 24, 2011 // 6:35 pm - Following up on the recent N64 Emulator for PS3 videos posted, today another Team known as EmulateMii have announced that the PS364 Nintendo 64 Emulator for PS3 is currently under development.

To quote: "We've been playing with PSL1GHT, the legal, open SDK for PS3, over the past couple days, and we have a basic port of Wii64 to PS3 already. Expect more to come...

PS. There is some recent news about a team claiming to be working on an N64 emulator for PS3. Just so you know, that story is not about us or about PS364."

More details will be posted on this Nintendo 64 PS3 Emulator WIP as they are available.

wow now this is good news.

hopefully in the future this could be plugin based so that we could use plugins that we prefer (such as N'Rages Dinput plugin, currently the only input plugin that supports transfer pak emulation for pokemon stadium/2)

good work

Always a pleasure to hear great news with the promise of better news to come! I love my N64's and don't play them anymore because they look terrible on modern TVs and I only liked a few anyway. It might be worth it if we could harness the power of the multi-threaded cell to emulate each piece of N64 hardware on a different SPU and get proper up scale and filtering going with 1080P output.

I would also like to see if audio filtering and up-sampling would be possible on games with MP3 encoded audio like "Conker's bad fur day" and "perfect dark". This looks promising for games like Mario 64 but I am not sure if a suitable frame rate could be achieved for resource intensive games like the two previously mentioned above. I sure hope It can!

I used to mod my physical game paks like 007 with semi permanent mods that saved to the eeprom. This takes me back. I still have my N64 shark link PC to Game$hark cable and wonder if an internal Game$hark like memory editor could be added to the emulator with FTP support for good measure.

Good luck to the developers working on this! I sincerely hope progress on this goes well and wish them the best. This will kick A$$.

I moved this to the PS3 hacks section for discussion now, and I will promote it to the Site News as soon as more details are available such as pictures, a video, POC or a release etc.

Woow if you really can bring the N64 emulator to the PS3 that would make my PS3 complete!!! Good luck and you'll have all my support. Im a big N64 fan (Super Mario 64+Mario Party 2 in the old days oh yeah!)

If I may ask, is this version 1.6 or 1.7? I thought they didn't releases sources of that right?
