To quote: PCE.emu is a PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 emulator written in C++ for Android, iOS, WebOS and PS3. It uses the emulation backend from Mednafen and is built on top of the Imagine engine. The source is released under the GPLv3 license.
Accurate emulation and high compatibility rate (Note: Data swapped TG16 roms are not supported, see known issues below for a fix if you're getting a black screen on load)
Backup memory and save state support, auto-save and ten manual slots for save states
Supports ROM-based games in .pce and .sgx formats, optionally in .zip files
CD emulation via loading CUE or TOC+BIN files (select a system card rom in the options, for versions <= 1.3.0: place syscard.pce in same directory as CUE file)
About Save Games:
A standard .sav file is created for games using internal battery backup memory
Save states are named .ncq for the auto-save slot, and .ncX where X is the slot number for manual saves.
Performance Notes (as of version 1.3.0):
PS3: 60fps with hucards & CDs.

Not really a bug, but when running on a case-sensitive file system make sure your CUE file *specifies references in the same case as on the file system.
PS3: only 1 controller is supported
PS3: loading a CUE file with external audio tracks causes the system to lock up
PS3: sound is not synced properly, causes slight distortion in the audio
