    Hi,

    I would like to know if there is possibility of playing pc games on ps3.

    Thanks.

    No, absolutely not. The PS3 will never be capable of playing modern PC games because the cell is not an x86-compatible processor.

    Edit: Although you may be able to play a few games under Linux, but that's about it. DOSBox will allow you to play older PC games if that is what you had in mind.

    I thought this was possible, not directly but using ur ps3 as a client to your PC to stream the games to the console. I dont remember the article, but do some googling on the subject.

    I would hazard a guess that the PS3 just wasn't powerful enough to.

    Hi , theoretically its possible through cpu virtualization/emulation , anyway can't expect same speed or same graphics quality of native x86 platform , actually so far there's no emulators for ps3.

    A little different but along the same lines. Is it possible to play PS2 games on a PS3? Thanks

    It is if you have a PS3 with (4) USB ports on the front, if yours only has (2) then unfortunately not yet.

    More details are here, with the original guides, videos, etc linked in the third post of the thread:
