The Playstation 3 console

The PlayStation 3 (known shorthand as PS3) is a console by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., released in 2006/2007. This console is notorious for being difficult to work with, due to the newly-introduced Cell Broadband Engine achitecture that no game developer outside of Sony has worked with prior to launch.  

EmulatorsEdit

Due to the complexity of the Cell processor achitecture, plus the fact that it would take a LOT of resources to get such games emulated (as an example, see specifications in Dolphin and PCSX2 for their respective consoles), there is no PS3 emulator sophisticated enough to play PS3 games at full speeds. There are, however, some that are usable only for small homebrew (and in RPCS3's case, a very limited selection of commercial titles):

Name Operating System(s) Latest Version Active Recommended
RPCS3 Windows, Linux Git
