    I think this is a clue statement, preservation, only through emulators old games can be played again, its not like pc games that can be played on any pc with the appropiate tweaks. So yeah, lets call it preservation and nothing more.

    Didn't DOSBOX get written because it had become impossible to run all those old DOS games on modern hardware?

    Obsolescence is not the sole preserve of consoles - heck, even the switch from Windows XP to Vista/7 broke a lot of game compatibility.

    Also, installing something like Discworld 2 (a first-generation Windows 95 game) that insists on overwriting your DirectX files with, say, DirectX 2 - not fun.

    How well would the PS3 run DOSbox anyways? We have native USB HID support - that's great to have already with an emulator like that.

    FBA - would be the next BEST emulator port.

But anyhow not many xbox1 are still working so bringing them to the ps3 is a big plus. On the other hand theres always a game to come back and check out, for me is a snes game, final fantasy VI which I havent played yet and the emu will make it posible.

    What we didnt get on the xbox1 era was a ps1 port that really worked 100% so that would be nice or a ps2 emu that works good. But anyway, with so many great games right now I really see it quite difficult to find some time to grab the old ones. But thanks again for the work, I hope its a great learning experience porting this emu to the ps3.

    Also I would like to ask you all a question, are you really going to use your ps3 as a nes, snes emulator or any other old console? I ask this because xbox360, ps3s and most of the current gen hardware seems to break after a couple of years if they even last that long, so are you really going to blow that "life" your console has to play a nes game? Or are you planning to use xbox media center for example to kill that "life" watching supernatural or any other show? Because I think there are far easier ways to get all this stuff with out burning a console. Well just asking to know what you people think.
    Adrianc1982,

    if you want XBMC that badly, there's a simple solution:

    get coding already. I want to see it too, but I'm not going to post innuendo on a message forum that basically translates to: "Stop all work on console emulators, and get working on XBMC". That's not very nice now, isn't it?

    We're not doing this stuff for anything else but our own amusement and personal gratification. If you get some use out of it, that's a bonus, but by no means a priority.

    BTW - Halsafar is a member of the SNES9x PS3 team. So we're building up SNES9x as a foundational framework first - so that we could use some of the main code to port emulators with it.

    Glad to see someone picked up my little side project. Sad to report that it is not quite ready yet. Progress is very good though. Also the idea is to keep the code base very similar to the snes one we are working on so it is easy to maintain.

    I won't post much on the forums but I do read. I will of course post success when it is reached.

    My PS3 has been collecting dust since MGS4. I'd be happy to "burn" it out with some actual use. My PSX still runs fyi and it was abused back in the day.

    Is your native language english? Or do you even read my complete post? Try rereading my original post and see the BEHIND you are making of yourself. Cheers.

    I would really like an emulator for the sega dreamcast but i guess this too would be great just to have it run on the ps3. lol
