A member of PS3-hacks.nl made it a bit clearer how to use emulators on the PS3 using Swap Magic. The tutorial is located on the bottom so scroll down a bit to view it.
Emulating an emulator LOL
This article only proves to me that they could Give us all ps2 emulation through software with ease.
I play a ton of PS2 games that I missed last gen.
Im with kingme on this one,Im still looking for P3 FES,and the MGS essentials.
I still play Persona, Odin's Sphere, Suikoden V, Shadow of the Colossus... the list goes on. PS2 is a great system, sure it's not as high tech as this gen systems, but it's got an AMAZING library of games. I play my PS2 a lot still.
Unfortunately for me I missed alot of the last gen with new kids and whatnot and didn't even own a console, so pretty much anything PS2 is new to me. I've been playing the MGS Essentials (I plan on completing before playing MGS4) and alot of the ones you guys have mentioned too. Still have alot of cheap $10.00-$15.00 PS2 games I picked up used that I haven't gotten to yet.
I just bought persona 3 fes, also I'm playing ICO, SOTC, Trapt and allot of ps2 games. so like most gamers I think BC is important
they should just get rid of the country lock on ps1 and ps2 games
Agreed! If only they could.
and maybe they simply can't do it
I believe they could and could benefit Sony in the long run. Having such an extensive line for PS2 titles is a plus. A plus to the gamer is having that option to play those title missed that are now affordable at a cheaper price tag then the release retail rate. It is easy for them to remove it. Look at all the boot methods used on previous consoles. Sony can implement a boot option in the OS. As well have that option for the user to enable or disable.
@theturk JRPGs .... every one out so far on next gen consoles are crap compared to their ps2 competitors .
This means nothing. When someone finds a way to download emulators to the hdd itself, that's when it'll take a new shape all together. The ps3 would be the most profound console of all time. Running every game/system ps3 and below. That's impressive. A nice thought and dream.
It's a step in the right direction, I didn't even know that running emulators (w/o using LINUX) on the PS3 was possible to this point. A modded Xbox could run everything including PS1 & N64 games, except for it's PS2 counterpart. There's no reason why the PS3 couldn't run everything except for 360 games. Hell it could probably run Wii games...
That's what I'm looking forward to. All emulators on my PS3 make it happen Sony. PS3 PS2 PS1 Xbox GC N64 SNES NES GB GBC GBA SD SS SG All in one system = greatness.
It's possible for sure. It's only a matter of time before they create an HDD based emu for PS3 IMO. It would be sweet, but like you said, it's just a dream right now.
then people complains about problems with FW updates...those are the ones having trouble with FW v2.40
i still play a lot of ps2 games. i gotta admit i play the guy game when friends come over still. that and when a sequel is announced on ps3, i go back to the originals and play them all the way through to prepare for the new one. just finished up the last of the resident evils yesterday
Do you have to be some kind of an elite hacker/modder to get this to work?
Just follow the tutorial and ask any quetions you like ;)
LIBSD, XMCMAN and XMCSERV are impossible to find :'(
It's difficult to download the ELF file because of the language. $niper
