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.

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.
