This PS3 Emulator for PC Truly Looks Promising; Check it Out!

By   /   9 months ago

The RPCS3 PlayStation 3 emulator for PC isn’t entirely finished, but it’s certainly looking very promising.

The team behind the emulator have been working hard the past few months to make it run as smoothly as possible on Windows platform, and they have come a long way.

A couple of generations before the PS3, almost all consoles could be emulated on the PC. As the hardware has become more complex, it has become increasingly difficult for developers to create emulators of consoles in the past decade.

PS3 used one of the lesser known Cell microprocessor technologies, and to emulate that on a standard x86 processor (used in PCs) is no small engineering feat.

Although emulation is generally associated with piracy, it has actually been used as a commercial product in the past. Mostly emulators are not seen with the same negativity as piracy, as they greatly aid in preserving the lives of out-dated games that are no longer available on readable discs, or have been removed from a service for one reason or the other.

The team also demoed PS3 title After Burner Climax on the RPCS3 emulator. Be sure to check out the video of the demonstration (shared above).
