Thread: PS3 Emulator??

    This thread may be old, but i'm just saying Geohot has cracked the PS3 security stuff. now all that's left is reverse engineering the software all the way back to how that games are made. maybe not 10-20 years, eh?

    Oh, and just so you guys know, current PC hardware way surpasses the PS3's capabilities. One just has to rewrite a whole new OS to take advantage of it. Maybe port the PS3's OS over? somehow?

    They have only really been making playable progress on the Saturn, Dreamcast and GC in the last year or so (all 10+ year old systems) and todays PC's are light years past them in hardware terms. I'm not sure how many times we need to go over how completely pointless and misleading the PC spec Vs Console spec debate is in terms of 'emulation' of hardware

    So what you should do is provide an email address for all the people who's hopes you build up to email you on asking endless questions about where the emulator is, how to make it work and why it won't run games on their PC....that is afterall, all posts like this achieve. Until there's a working emu with playable games its just enthusiastic rhetoric, to try to pretend anything else is just stupidity.

    True, but what the hell does that have to do with emulation. Any fool knows you need 8 times that core to emulate something.

    Oh right, "just" , not like that is a hard task or anything. And why not find a cure for caner and we are set. Come now, you seriously have no idea what your suggesting.

    You still need interpretation from os to hardware.

    So now you need to great an entire OS-emulator, with a kernel emulator?

    Whether you emulate the os or a rom , its still going to involve work. If the ps3 architecture is a nice match for the PC systems today then yes this proposed idea would save time. However the XBOX is, so why has no-one done that? BECAUSE IT ISNT EASY!!

    Why is this thread still open?

    Because it provides a single thread for them to post in as opposed to dealing with several new one's every week I would imagine.

    It is true that PCs hardware is a lot faster than PS3, but keep in mind that both hardware are built into a different architecture and thus emulation works like this (more or less): Instructions in a console hardware needs to be translated into a PC "language" that it can understand and then interprete it back as console language and it takes time to do this process and that's why faster hardaware is required.

    nice..

    Maybe so, but that cpu is nothing short of a tyrant. That alone would be hard to match in a modest or even average pc system.
