To quote: RPCS3 is a New PS3 Emulator, Still In Early Stage, Boots Commercial Game #1
We know that a lot of you want to get your hands on a PS3 emulator. Well, that day may come sooner than expected, as a team of developers is currently working on a PS3 emulator that is able to boot a commercial game.
In the realm of emulation land, this is huge. Yes, this is laggy and buggy but the fact that an emulator can boot a commercial PS3 game is HUGE. The name of the emulator is RPCS3 and you can view a video from it running a commercial game below. Enjoy!
Wow, this is huge news! It'll be years before we get something playable, but it's a start.
New video showing the game running much better.
Disgaea 3 also showing some results. This is a test on the last revision of RPCS3. It requires to manually unpack a edat file and extract some firmware files into the /dev_flash/ folder. If you feel the desperate need to claim this is fake, please go away.
