These games are very old now its easier to just locate a ps3

ProjectVulcan1689d ago

Not the point. I for one want Metal Gear Solid 4 in minimum native 1080p and 60FPS. On PS3 it ran 1024 x 768 and about 25FPS.

So the only way that ever looks like happening is via emulation. Good work is being done on RPCS3.

marioJP871689d ago

Ain't happening. You'll get 1080P but the frame rate won't run at 60 fps. Emulators don't work that way as PC games does. Not a single emulator has been able to override a 30 fps game to run at 60 fps ... actual 60 frames.

@ MarioJP87 Lol sorry but go back to your console, you know nothing about PC emulation. I have run countless console titles that originally ran at 30FPS on PC emulators with a full fat 60FPS refresh. Countless! I suggest you google for Zelda BOTW emulation, where it's easy to have 50FPS+ for a game usually running 30 or below on Switch. Just the other day I ran 25FPS PS2 game Metal Gear Solid 3 at 1080/60FPS on PCSX2 ......two examples.

It is true some games are designed with critical parts of the engine locked to frame rate, but most actually aren't. Probably 98 percent aren't. This is because many console games don't remain locked to 30FPS, so unless you hit the 30FPS you have problems elsewhere.

Whats more some of the ones that do have stuff like animation and physics locked to a 30FPS pacing occasionally have work around options baked into an advanced emulator.

MGS3 is one of those with specific configuration for 60FPS, AND it even has analogue button controller support to boot! Not even the Xbox 360 remaster has that!

Thank you for schooling him, ProjectVulcan! I was is this guy talking about? haha Someone has never used an emulator before I guess.

Spartacus101689d ago

By that logic you might as well not play any console exclusive from this gen since one day it will possibly be playable in native 4k, 144hz.

Yeah its a fact that the higher the res and frame rate the better, but waiting for all these years while the graphics themselves start to become outdated seems like one step forward, two steps back.

starchild1689d ago


One of the benefits of emulation is the ability to run at higher resolutions and smoother framerates. I can assure you I've run many console games at 60fps which normally run far below that. ProjectVulcan is correct about everything he said.


I don't want to have yet another console cluttering up the area around my TV. I don't really have the space for it to be honest. Backwards compatibility should be a normal feature for any gaming device. But emulation brings lots of additional benefits anyway.

marioJP871688d ago (Edited 1688d ago )

Show me a YouTube video with all of your claims and I will retract my comment. I've been emulating for years on PC, PS3 in its linux days and android. I know what I'm talking about. You claim 98% of emulated games? Show me proof. What can you provide besides MGS?
What other emulators do you claim are capable of this?

ProjectVulcan1687d ago (Edited 1687d ago )

Erm, most emulators are capable of it. DEMUL, PCSX2, Dolphin, Project64, ePSXe etc etc.....

I showed you two games that emulate at higher frame rates than on their native platforms. One is enough to prove the point. Pick either. Find videos of the other ten thousand yourself, it is not difficult.

It's a fact and you really don't know anything about emulation if you think that you cannot emulate console games to run faster! That's patently not true to anyone that has genuinely emulated console games on PC before.

marioJP871686d ago

Bull crap. I've been running dolphin for years on my laptop. I'm currently running it on my GTX 965m. I damn sure cant run resident evil 4 at 60 fps and I mean real 60 fps, not 60 frames with a locked 30 fps. I cant run "The Warriors" or "Manhunt" on PCSX2 at 60 fps.
Now if you can show me just a 30 second video of you running RE4 at 60 fps using dolphin, then I will admit to you being right and me being wrong.

Shhhhh. Let the master race who claim to have a better game platform try and find ways to illegally play better games.

MoshA1689d ago

Huh? Most people have played these games before and want to replay them on higher settings. Those who haven't won't enjoy them as much without nostalgia anyway.

ProjectVulcan1689d ago

Emulation is not illegal. This shouldn't have to be pointed out here, it should be common knowledge even to knuckle dragging mouth breathers.

annoyedgamer1689d ago

The ignorance is oozing from this comment.

letsa_go1689d ago

They get all the PC games, PLUS the ability to play console games. Sounds like master race to me!

Poor Heavy Rain lol that game was and is a pile. Emulation sounds cool though - Res. Evil 3 and Directors Cut all the way.

Skankinruby1689d ago

Ugh, motorstorm collection on psn please!

LoveSpuds1689d ago

Know that would be a great collection of games for sure. My only gripe with these games was how difficult they got by the time you were two thirds of the way through the campaign.

Harkins17211689d ago

Making great game play even better!

pyroxxx1689d ago

So games run at 10 fps and graphical glitches not seen since pcsx2 in 2003,.. I will get there someday.

PirosThe4th1689d ago

Many games already run at full speed
