[Answered] PS3 H/W emulator?
I have been sitting for a long time, waiting for PS3 to open up. If its taking time, I believe there are very good reasons for that. but I just want to see for myself how hard it really is.
I am gonna ask lot of questions here and i hope somebody here can help me with the answers. so let me start with my first question:
1. is it not possible to create an emulator for PS3 H/W and run PS3 bootloader/firmware code on it ? It might take a long time to develop such an emulator but is it possible ? at least theoretically ?

Well, its sort of been done (very sort of).
IBM has software that can somewhat emulate the cell, however as for doing it for the PS3, it is sadly quite a ways off. Forgetting the fact that enough information about the PS3 is still unknown, since its such an "odd" piece of hardware, it may prove hard to emulate.
But, assuming we find enough information out about the system, it is theoretically possible yes, but I would not expect to see it for ages, if ever!
