117w ago - We are a team of 3 guys who have been working on a Nintendo 64 emulator for quite some time now, and we have decided to go out with the news since now our N64 emulator is officially working on the PS3.
We still have a huge load of things to work on, but it's playable and N64 is finally working on the PS3.
What we have done so far:
1 player (keyboard only)
We have succeeded to enable gameshark codes
Graphics works excellent on most games we have tried; Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, Ridge Racer 64, Diddy Kong Racer, Mario Kart 64, Banjo Kazooie and 1080 Snowboard.
Games we have tried that are jerky (so far): Duke Nukem 64, Doom 64, Hexen 64 and WCW Smackdown 64.
Issues (we are working on):
Audio is not working yet.
A user interface and the ability to edit and change files such as controller settings, cheat codes, etc. (We do all this over FTP now).
Game menu (we now have to upload one game at the time).
PS3 controller, (we now have to use a USB keyboard).
We have decided to use ps3news and youtube to communicate with you guys, and if you want to help us out, feel free to either email us at email@example.com or PM us on youtube.
We will upload videos for every new feature or issue we fix, so please subscribe to us on youtube. We want to keep you guys updated so you can follow our process.
And we will of course update you here as well since this is the official ps3 news website for hackers. Please share the video and all that stuff.
Here's the youtube video we just uploaded:
And have a nice day

Damn, I was genuinely excited for this but after reading the whole fake vs. real debate I've become a skeptic
The reasons being:
video #1: 132 stars - its been too long since I played mario 64 for me to remember but from what I've read the N64 version only had 120 where as the version for ds had 30 more added putting the total to 150
This is one of two things I am waiting for. Once an N64 emulator is available, my PS3 will cease to play PS3 games or access PSN content. Instead, I will have thousands of thousands of games spanning multiple generations on one system that works with a large TV and has a wireless controller.
Icing on the cake would be porting Dolphin, and being able to use the move controller instead of a wiimote. It would be the only good reason to buy a move controller
well I can tell you the videos are fake, all three are cut after the 'emu' is loaded from the xmb which is obvious from the light shift, fading differences and position of the camera in relation to the screen.
that's not proof the project is fake, it's just likely it is, but the videos certainly are.
