It's a huge achievement for the emulator, now in its 10th year
Oh man i would love it if Sony were to utilize such an emulator to allow for playing PS3 games on a PS5.
I guess it's corporate greed. You can play some PS3 games via ps now and that's cool but there's definitely input lag interfering with the experience.
It’s not enough to boot a game. I want it to work 100% or I’m not interested.
Don't know what they're doing with that, people would love to play PS3 games. Must be the money.
Been able to play Metal Gear Online 2 for the past few months on it, no issues, so yeah definitely coming along.
Yep i've enjoyed it too, apart from the dwindling player count, they really need to push that game more. https://mgo2pc.com/
o7 A salute to my fellow MGO fans/veterans, I may have to look into whether my PC is capable of running it, MGO2 is still my top online game of all time, great memories.
Súper underrated game
Would love to be able to play it on shield but cant even do ps2
It's one of the best systems ever and Sony needs to figure out to allow us to play those PlayStation 3 games on current consoles That would be such a huge positive news for PlayStation if they were to announce that all PlayStation 3 games will be playable on PlayStation 4 and 5
Heck yeah. If MS can make a big announcement of bc for xbo after the fact... Sony can too. Id welcome it wholeheartedly.
Ps now is best bet for now but who knows what the future holds. Cause Sony only focused on ps4/ps5 and future. Still disappointed they stopped doing ps2 on ps4.
big difference between bootable and playable. Would add a huge library if possible on ps5
for sure, everything boots, but there are still around 1000 titles that cannot be finished due to some sort of error. Still, there's a lot of playable games, which is a good start.
I'm an emulators geek , can't resist with any positive news about them.
Sony need to step up their game here and offer us PS3 back compat on PS5, even if it's just a curated selection of top titles like Xbox did.
I would love to play Metal gear solid 3 HD but those pressure sensitive face buttons are so hard to emulate the right way without an OG wireless ps3 controller. Even the ps5 controller gave up those analog face buttons.
It's why I still use a PS3 controller even for Steam PC games. Nothing compares for action games.
Now where to get the games?? 🤔
Ahoy ye mateys
If you've got a compatible blu-ray optical drive you can rip your PS3 games. You can also use your PS3 to dump digital games. https://rpcs3.net/quickstar...
I do have an extensive PS3 collection.Awesome
I still think we will have proper Xbox One and PS4 emulation before we have proper 360 and PS3 emulation. Those IBM processors...
Great achievement. Genuine question, how does one find time to play games a few generations back? I barely have time to keep up with games that I have never played before.
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum
I don't think he was asking where to play them
You could stream less, work less, go out less, socialize less, etc.
I stopped stressing out about keeping up with new games a long time ago. Now ~50% of my time gaming is spent on retro games. I've had an active backlog since the beginning of the PS3 generation and even on older systems there are still games I want to play that I never had the chance to. Once I've realized that there is no way that I'm ever gonna have enough time to play everything I want to play, it became kinda arbitrary whether I focus on new or old games. I always play what I want to in the moment and while there are games that I absolutely want to play day 1, they are rare enough that it doesn't become a problem.
I am the opposite, when there are new games, I usually want to play them first (if they are good of course), I am not very motivated to play retro games. Maybe I am getting old, just don't feel like I have enough time to replay games that I have finished before. Recently finished Kena Bridge of Spirit, Metroid Dread... was hoping to playing Dying Light 2 next but that is delayed... so just in the process of picking what to play next, maybe I should wrap up RDR2. Actually borrowed Avengers from the library, the single player is surprisingly good so far, the graphic is really good. A few games that I tried but just can't get myself to finish because something just feel off... - Biomutant - Shadow of Tomb Raider (finished the first two entries, the third one for some reasons I keep losing interests)
Jesus...10yrs just to boot every game. I guess another 10 to load every game. Another 10 to make them playable and another 10 to make them fully playable. Still glad they making progress. I guess my kids, kids will get to enjoy it.
Old post, but the article was recommended to me. I mean, I'm 30. I remember running 64 emulators on a PSP in jr high. Emulation is just getting quicker and quicker, with the big 3 now just basically pulling PC parts off the shelf and calling it their console. The issue with the PS3 is their idiotic implementation of their in house cpu, which all but their seasoned 1st party deva even knew how to make proper use of. At the end of the day though, emulation will be the only way of actually preserving these games. PS3s are going to eventually die, and the discs as well. When they finally close the store, this will be the only somewhat convenient, and not highly expensive, way to actually play the PS3 library outside of the few PS3 titles you can stream via now.
Could they at least used a more modern PC picture for the article. Rocking the 1990s monitor lol.
So the argument and justification in the past was the cell processor were the reason they couldn’t do it. Looks like that argument was just rendered mute.
very interesting arguments
