Here is the first PS3 game being 100% emulated and working on RPCS3

Nice. A year or maybe 2 and PS3 emulation will be possible on most PC's with the majority of the games.

I wonder if that means It will be easy to pirate dlc that is not available anymore on psn anyway. Never got to play as Shuma Gorath and Jill Valentine in Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

Thats nice. I wonder if we will get a 360 emulator some day

BattleAxe2547d ago

They already have one, it's called backwards compatibility on Xbox One.

Hoffmann2547d ago

There is one in the working too

KTF262546d ago

Xenia emulator
still in very early stages but they made it to ingame (broken) before RPCS3

NewMonday2546d ago

Sony should look at the code and use it on PS4

they get an emulator free development cost

XanderZane2546d ago

True.. There's already a perfect running emulator on my XB1. Don't really need anything else except more games.

I say about a year and looking forward to it.

I like how you say "most" PC's. Actually "most" PC's, especially laptops and tablets don't even have the same performance as the XB1 and PS4 although I won't deny there are some that make the current consoles look like four-function calculators.

You also have to remember that Dead Space 3 was multiplatform (PS3, XBox360 and Microsoft Windows) and as such probably did not make as much use of the SPE's that games like Uncharted would have done.

Still, it is a pretty good attempt to emulate a PS3 game on the PC but I do think most people if they wish to play Dead Space 3 can either play it on their PS3 or XBox360 (XB1 under emulation) or just get the genuine PC version by fair means or by green parrot on shoulder.

The following is the Minimum System Requirements.
Processor: Intel : Pentium D 840 3.2GHz, AMD : Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core BE-2300.
Graphics Card / GPU: Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT, AMD Radeon X1600 Pro 512MB.
RAM: 1 GB.
Operating System (OS): Windows XP 32 bit, Windows 7 32 bit.
Hard Disk Space: 10 GB.
Direct X 11.

I think we will take more notice if Uncharted or Demon's Souls rather than Dead Space 3 is made to run under emulation. Still like I have said before it is a good attempt at PS3 emulation.

This is what I have been wondering. Im already trying to be somewhat conscious about how playable the release version is, so that years after all the servers handing out updates and selling DLC have been shut down, I can still enjoy the game.

Now that emulation of 7th gen is starting, it will be interesting to see how can all the patches and DLC be handled legitimately, or if piracy is required.

Sadly, piracy is still way too relevant in the emulation scene. The best thing that could be done, would be the publishers giving out games older than 15 years old for free, unless they re-release or patch better conpatibility to them. The next best thing would be to not categorize downloading of 20 years old games as piracy, since the situation is very different, for example when compared to music or movies.

Not that it would change anything, except possibly peoples perception of the act.

andrewsquall2546d ago

Still waiting to play a majority of PS2 games "perfectly" on that awful PCSX2 emulator so I wouldn't hold my breath.

hamzilla2546d ago

Ummm have you tried the latest version of it? I'm playing every ps2 game in 4k no problems what so ever. Yes I have a GTX 1080 tho so that might help it out alot.

Hopefully within the next couple years, I can pop in my copy MGS4 and Demons Souls and play them the way they are meant to be played, upscaled to1440p @ 60fps with AA and AF.
Nobody should be mad about RPCS3 or any other emulators being developed on PC's

Sephiroushin2547d ago

If we were going by that then 4k 144fps...
But I'm just trying to say that the way they are meant to be played is the way they were made in the first place...
And no, my comment doesnt mean I'm mad, I will play them myself the higher my PC can handle them!

PoSTedUP2546d ago

I agree. I like gta3 on ps2 much better than any other enhanced version.

I3loggs242546d ago

"But I'm just trying to say that the way they are meant to be played is the way they were made in the first place..."
Considering FROM dropped Demons Souls 2 because Sony would not allow them to release a sequel on multiple platforms, I'd say your statement is false. Legal contracts stopped the devs from making the game the way it was meant to be played, RPCS3 will fix that.

The way they are meant to be played is whatever way brings the best experience for the gamer, and depending on how well this emulator runs over the next couple of years, PC emulation will be superior to running it on the PS3.

Edit: wrong post

NextGenCeo2547d ago

I don`t need a make comment. I`m just smiling :D

CPU:Intel corei7 4790k
GPU:Geforce 970
RAM:DDR3 Kingston 2400mh 2x8gb

2pacalypsenow2547d ago

Yeah that won't MGS4 at 4k6 60fps

ONESHOTV22547d ago

you should add 16GB ram i just bought a HYPERX 16 GB ram a few days ago and it's working very good i was using vengence before 2X4

Cernunnos2546d ago

That is a nice mid-range build

MRMagoo1232546d ago

same specs as the school pc I made for my son for his room cept corsair ram

NohansenBoy2546d ago

Well, the GPU is mid range, but the RAM and CPU is future proof and high end.

Red_Renegade2547d ago

they were meant to be played on ps3. that's why they're there.

Princess_Pilfer2546d ago

Nobody cares sweetie.

I really don't want to have to have every console I own hooked up to my TV all the time when I could just run them all on 1 machine. Especially when I'll be able to run those games better (ie more stable framerate, higher resolution, faster loading) on that 1 machine, and I'll be able to keep playing online after the games servers or the entire PS3 PSN goes down.

Red_Renegade2546d ago

um, nobody cares about what you don't want, either. and why would you have all the consoles hooked up all the time? you don't play them all the time, do you? doesn't matter, cuz nobody cares.

Princess_Pilfer2546d ago

Except my desire represents a significant chunk of people who own multiple older consoles and a decent PC and makes our lives easier.

Your "desire," if you can call it that, wants people to go spend 100 bucks on a new PS3 if theirs dies, it wants online for PS3 games to die when the PS3 PSN does or when servers for the games get pulled (which has already happened for most of them that used servers,) it wants people to have to have all their old consoles hooked up, it wants people to be stuck playing 720p games that can't even manage a stable 30 fps on their 4k 120hz TV/moniter, ect. That helps......nobody.

Even if we look at the piracy angle (which I don't advocate, just making a point) at this point it can't hurt anyone anymore. I have a PS3, but lets say I didn't. Why would I buy a new one for 200-250 USD when I can get a used on for 70? So Sony makes no money off that. Why would I spend 20-60 USD on a new game when I could get the same game used for 5-20? So Sony makes no money off that. PS3 online is free so no PS+ required, so Sony makes no money off that. All the cheapest legal ways to buy the *vast* majority of PS3 stuff is buying it in a way that sees all the profit go to gamestop or some pawnshop or random people on ebay, none of it goes to Sony, therefor it will have little to no impact on Sony whichever way you go about it. Might as well go about it in the way that gives me the better experience and doesn't require the area around my TV be a tangled mess of consoles and cords.

And yeah, I do play games from old systems on a regular basis. Revently I've been playing a lot of Xenoblade Chronicles and Contra Hard Corps so that's the Wii and Sega, and I go back to play Burnout 3 occasionally, and I'm playing Guild Wars with a bunch of friends. So that's 4 systems in the last ~2 months

Red_Renegade2546d ago

blah blah. my only point was that the games were meant to be played on the console they were made to work on. dunno where you and your significant chunk matter to that at all. prolly cuz they don't.

ShaunCameron2546d ago

He just means himself and his little social circle which probably consist of 20 people at most.

Princess_Pilfer2546d ago

@ShaunCameron She means herself and at the very least the 9 million people who've downloaded *just* the latest version of the PS2 emulator.

@Red_Renegade BS. The only reason to make such an obvious statemnt (no ****ing duh they're meant to run on the PS3, they were released on the PS3,) is to make it as a counter point to the idea of an emulator. You can't back out and pretend it meant something else because someone pointed out that in most cases a well built emulator is *superior* to the original system in most ways, and provided it's only being built for last gen consoles and earlier then it's not hurting anything because nobody was going to buy the stuff new anyways.
