Demon's Soul can be seen emulated on PC using the PS3 emulator in this latest video.
it seems to run okay-ish, but good lord is the sound quality awful. is that the emulator or just a botched recording?
it's the emulator and technically it's not the quality it's a bug however it's a huge progress
PS3 is just going to be one of those consoles that's just incredibly difficult to emulate without actually having source code for everything. The Architecture is just going to be a nightmare to emulate, until CPUs are more than powerful enough to brute force through it.
The performance is quite bad.
Damn it Sony....why couldn't you just remaster this for the Pro at 1080/60fps?? If there ever was a game that deserved it. Demon's Souls and Dark Souls 1 are the two games from last generation that I would pay double to play remastered on my Pro. On topic, just buy a used PS3 with Demon's Souls for $120 or whatever it cost and play it properly...it's worth it. Plus the online is still going strong.
I've poured so many hours of my life into Demon's and Dark Souls, and if they remastered it I'd do it all again. Please Sony.
I actually just bought Demon's Souls. Just came in the mail today. Only Souls game that has been looming over me since I packed the PS3 away but going to start that game sometime next week.
You're in for a treat...however some gamers who have played the other games in the franchise say Demon's Sous feels too dated. I vehemently disagree with that assertion and for me personally, Demon's Souls has the best atmosphere in the entire franchise. It's like a nightmare fairly tale. It also has some of the best levels (poison swamp) and some of the coolest weapons with the Blue Blood sword and Meat Cleaver. Just a tip...watch out for the Black Phantom lurking in the swamp.
"Damn it Sony"? Sony can't force From Software to do something. And you say it as if From Software could do a 1080p/60fps version of Demon's Souls justice, the kings of unoptimisation.
Enjoy pc players, I had loads of fun with this one. If you've never played a souls game before, definately start with this one though, since later games were aimed to improve upon this. Also, has some neat features you won't see anywhere in the souls series like the weapon upgrade paths :)
The white/black world tendency was a fantastic idea as well.
Oh yes that was definately a cool feature. I really wondered why they didn't bring that back in later souls games.
Cool, can run some PlayStation Exclusives on this. That's great. We all love emulation, aye?! Gotta love the ps3 emulation love,
My favorite PS3 game.
So over 10 years later some people are finally managing to run one PS3 game on their PC? This goes to show you Sony really nailed it with their piracy protection measures on that one.
Damn! and people say the diffrenece between the PS4 gen and the ps3 one doesnt show...
