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.

Thrilling news for those of us who tend to have monstrous PCs. If a PS3 emulator for the PC which allows internal resolution selection is made reasonably functional in the next few years more than just a few of us would be happy. Some games are as low as 960x540 (stretched internally to 720p), the aliasing in those is intolerable.

A quick note for anyone who has an HD capture card/TV tuner, if you have a modern AMD card don't forget you can force morphological anti-aliasing over it regardless that it's not being rendered on the PC and it's just the image shown.

So are you saying that a functional PS3 emulator could assist in the development of CFW's?

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.

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

You stop wasting your time and make a 3.60 Jailbreak. You seem to know what you're talking about.

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!
