Demon’s Souls is a PlayStation 3 exclusive which launched in 2007 and never made it to any other console or PC, however, you can now play the game on PC at 4K/30 FPS using the RPCS3 emulator.
RPCS3 emulator is a PlayStation 3 emulator that runs PS3 games and Demon’s Souls is the latest addition to the games that can be played using this emulator.
According to the developers, Nekotekina introduced some SPU recompiler improvements the significantly improves the Demon’s Souls performance on RPCS3 running on PC. As you can see in the video below, the game runs quite smoothly using the RPCS3 emulator.
This video recorded with an i7-6700k the game is pretty much locked at 30 fps at all times. Yes you might notice the occasional badly paced frame or so, but compared to the 20 fps mess, for example, Boletarian Palace was at before this is just amazing. And it’s not like a real PS3 is any better in this regard.
However, devs of the RPCS3 emulator have been making steady improvements for their PlayStation 3 emulator. Recently, the emulator saw improvements God Of War 3, Army Of Two and more games to make them run more smoothly while running on the emulator.
Not only that, the team shared a couple of videos showcasing Red Dead Redemption and The Last Of Us running on PC, however, the games are almost unplayable due to awfully low FPS and glitches.
But, in the latest video, the team noted that improvements will be coming and also teased at the end of the video that they won’t be leaving out The Last Of Us.
Since Naughty Dog and Rockstar Games do not plan to release their games on PC, we hope that with the help of this emulator we can play these games on PC at an acceptable framerate.
