A Quick One – PS3 Emulation On PC – Running Some Games – 2018 04 13 17 45 45
I managed to get a PS3 Emulator called RPCS3 running on my PC. It’s fairly easy to set up and I discovered 5 of my games would actually work with this emulator.
The emulator uses the regular update file intended for the PS3 and you need to install that inside of the emulator. Then, if you have a compatible bluray drive it is possible to dump the games, decrypt them and copy them inside the file structure of the emulator, much like the WiiU emulator does.
It’s far from perfect and certainly not full speed when grabbing the game footage with OBS at the same time. But I figured I’d share this amazing fact with you guys.
It’s fascinating to see software intended for a vastly different architecture just do its thing on the PC.
