Home PS4 News - Latest PlayStation 4 and PS3 News

February 21, 2011 // 7:46 pm - We are a team of 3 guys who have been working on a Nintendo 64 emulator for quite some time now, and we have decided to go out with the news since now our N64 emulator is officially working on the PS3.

We still have a huge load of things to work on, but it's playable and N64 is finally working on the PS3.

What we have done so far:

  • 1 player (keyboard only)
  • We have succeeded to enable gameshark codes
  • Graphics works excellent on most games we have tried; Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Ridge Racer 64, Diddy Kong Racer, Mario Kart 64, Banjo Kazooie and 1080 Snowboard.
  • Games we have tried that are jerky (so far): Duke Nukem 64, Doom 64, Hexen 64 and WCW Smackdown 64.

Issues (we are working on):

  • Audio is not working yet.
  • A user interface and the ability to edit and change files such as controller settings, cheat codes, etc. (We do all this over FTP now).
  • Game menu (we now have to upload one game at the time).
  • PS3 controller, (we now have to use a USB keyboard).
  • Multiplayer.

We have decided to use ps3news and youtube to communicate with you guys, and if you want to help us out, feel free to either email us at [email protected] or PM us on youtube.

We will upload videos for every new feature or issue we fix, so please subscribe to us on youtube. We want to keep you guys updated so you can follow our process.

And we will of course update you here as well since this is the official ps3 news website for hackers. Please share the video and all that stuff.

Here's the youtube video we just uploaded:








And have a nice day

Huzzah! It's a shame the Gamecube emulator announced a while back hasn't seen any development.

Make a video with pressing the PS button while playing, and put the camera so we can see the whole screen, also a better camera would be nice, or just record with a dvd/hd recorder.

Cant everyone just shut up! If its real, GREAT keep up the good work. If its not, a N64emu will happen eventually from somebody. if the wii can do it the ps3 can do it better!

Exactly! We would all love this to be real but i see nothing which proves it, the pish poor vids don't show proof in anyway and of course there is those 132 stars. Hope i'm wrong but this "emu" is nothing more than bollocks.

I believe it's real. I don't believe we have seen any fake postings around for a while? barrybarryk do you consider that they edited the video to NOT show them having to ftp their settings and load up things, which would make the video more lengthy and boring,so they cut it down to showing them running something instead of the whole thing? thats my input. props to the devs and hackers that made all of this possible.

p.s. ps3 being hacked is the holy grail... people need to learn to appreciate the hard work of these people.

132 stars on Mario 64? I thought there was only 120??

I'm hoping this comes together. I would really love to see a good N64 emu on the ps3.

that said, I'm also abit sceptical. not because of the quality of the video but because of the reasons barrybark pointed out.
If this does see the light of day, I'll be one of the 1st to congratulate the devs for their hard work. From what I've heard it will be hard work porting code from an x86 platform.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's real. Everyone said the same things about the videos of the first PSJailbreak device and look where we are now. It would be nice if you could grab a $20 webcam and use that to film though, just so everyone who has doubts could get this cleared up. Also like barrybarryk says, please post one continuous shot, even if you are getting error messages or having trouble with it, we understand it's still an alpha/WIP. Thanks for your work and for bringing us the first look at it!
