The RPCS3 team has announced that the best Playstation 3 emulator, RPCS3, now supports online play via PSN emulation.
If they can get Killzone 2&Resistance online.I will build a pC just to play online
i'd be more interested in getting white knight chronicles online to work. although that's more of a pipe dream since it got shut down so they probably don't have code to tell it the servers are up
white knight part 2 which included the 1st game was an excellent game man i miss it the overworld traversal had awesome visuals
Correct me if I'm wrong, but in white Knight multiplayer you can build your own small village right?
@gtx i don't know. by the time i got the game the servers were shut down then i gave my ps3 to my nephew to play. I liked the game of the single player but i didn't get a chance to participate in the online unfortunately :I
@gtx Yes, you could... Most known villages were because the owner put resources for people to gather or the person was known for making guides etc...
Add socom confrontation to that and wow I'm in .. sony did brought amazing games but leaved the online to third parties alone and that got to change on the ps5 i need my socom fix and a new Killzone.. i mean for all i know they cab using shadows fall ( i will even take killzone 2 assets enhanced) assets and bring us a f2p online experience 120fps 4k
Warhawk Socom Confrontation (post patches) Killzone 2 Resistance
I have ordered my emulation rig. Waiting for it to arrive. See you online 👍
If they got MAG working, ill jump right on it
You'll just need 255 more people to jump on it with you.
Holy fffuuucccckkkk I want a MAG2 so bad. Maybe it 250 vs 250 with full vehicle support, objectives and character classes.
mag oh yeah that game!
Socom for me!
This is pretty incredible! Warhawk, Resistance, Killzone, Fat Princess...the list goes on
Does any games work online on ps3?
Only 2 confirmed working. Demon Souls and Bomberman Ultra. The rest of the games do not work yet. Note that this update came out only yesterday and has a lot of work ahead in order to get other games to work.
There's an android app for Warhawk called Warhawk Reborn which lets you play matches online via a 'LAN' game. Works great, but otherwise like TheEnigma said
If few coders on their PC can run ps3 games, why can't Sony do it on the PS5?
"For the Gamers" that's why. Remember no one buys a "new" system to play "older" games
RPCS3 has long been in development (9 years to be exact), and yet it still doesn’t fully support every PS3 games. Plus, the system requirement for RPCS3 seem to be quite high, as someone on Twitter said that their system has rx 570 4g with ryzen 3700x and 16 gb ram and still couldn’t run a demo app properly. Based on that, I think even Sony would struggle to emulate the PS3 properly, no matter how powerful the PS5 might be.
Sony has the documentation for the sustem architecture and development. They could easily do it but they won’t. If these free lance devs got their hands on those documents they could reverse engineer it in a short while
An RX 570 is not a high end GPU. I'm also just going to say Sony has the documentation, its very different from some dudes piecing things together in their spare time.
IDK I have an older i7, and I played through all of Persona 5 on the emulator. So most modern CPUs shouldn't really struggle with it.
I've been saying that for ages. If Sony puts more resources towards PS3 Emulator on PS4 or PS5 it's possible.
Because Sony would rather milk every last dollar they can. They'll gladly sell you a remaster that will run at a "glorious" 1080p for a very reasonable $60. What they do not want is you buying a $5 PS3 disc from eBay and playing it on your PS4. They would brand them self as true next gen machine, forward looking. Who wants to play last gen games anyway right? Don't be fooled by smokes and mirrors.
Is it gonna be p2p or what?
Only games that were p2p will work unfortunately. Games that used servers back in the day won't work at all
I miss playing Uncharted 2 and 3 online, so I'd gladly play it again online via RPCS3. Thank you hardware fan-developers!
Socom Confrontation please
I think a new socom is coming and it will be a huge deal not low budget. With a twist (with classes and new more modern tech) also but definitely with classic competitive modes a amazing clan system and tournament system. After all if Guerrilla Games take on Socom and GG loves classes plus online gaming community also loves them for example rainbow six . Hopefully is announced in the next few days and hopefully is a lunch tittle. Sony has always delivered a online focus game on release lunch
I really hope those GG clues are legit. Socom changed online gaming. It's a shame what they've done with the series since 2, but Confrontation was decent.
God I miss Warhawk
There's an android app for Warhawk called Warhawk Reborn which lets you play matches online via a 'LAN' game. Works great... Just checked the servers, for example there is a 22/24 person TDM Archipelago in progress *right now*
Personally still have the real deal, can play my ps3 anytime. Games running how they were intended.
No such thing as "how they were intended". They run how the hardware limitations and/or dev time/cost allow them to run. Nothing wrong with being able to run older games at higher resolutions and frame rates. Nobody could honestly believe that devs would have chosen to have games running at 540p/<20 fps if they had the option not to.
How's those Demon's Souls servers working for ya?
Metal Gear Online 2 please
There is a private server look it up :')
Resistance Fall of men is all I want.
awesome dang! :)
Socom Confrontation please. Why the hell can't Sony do this???
If I can play resistance 2 online I definitely will try again to platinum. cause I platinum all killzone series
