FCEU NES Emulator Port for PS3 is Under Development

700°
197w ago - Just under a month ago we reported on an SNES emulator for PS3 under GameOS, and today PSGroove reports that work has started on an FCEU NES emulator port for PlayStation 3 JailBreak users as well!

For those unaware, FCEU (previously known as FCE Ultra) is an open source Nintendo Entertainment System and Family Computer Disk System emulator.

To quote: According to [Register or Login to view links], it seems a user by the name of shinhalsafar has begun work on an NES emulator for the PS3.

The project seems to be less than 24 hours old, so it may take some time before something playable is released. However, we look forward to seeing what shinhalsafar has to offer.

b636102a7c:

SKFU: Sony Wants PS3 YLOD, TeamICE PSP Emulator Bricks PS3

850°
200w ago - Today SKFU reports that based on his recent findings Sony may actually want PS3 YLOD consoles, and in related news the TeamICE 'PSP Emulator' is bricking PS3 consoles of those who use it.

To quote from SKFU: "Due my reserach for a CFW I noticed an interesting string in a .RCO file (system_plugin.rco).

"msg_error_console_hot_pls_restart"

The system has become hot. Please turn off the system and wait a while before turning it on again.

So my thought is: Could the PS3 have prevented most of the YLOD cases, as there should be a function to shutdown the PS3 when it is too hot? Seems so, but well - someone may want to make profit."

According to PSGroove, Forum user TeamICE has released an alleged 'PSP Emulator' that is reported to be bricking PlayStation 3 consoles.

To quote: "They are showing screenshots and even including a readme which adds to the appearance of legitimacy. Unfortunately, this is not a psp emulator, when ran it actually will brick your PS3 console.

If you see someone posting this teamICE psp emu, then please ignore it and report the user.

Mathieulh was quick to announce that the EBOOT.BIN is a manufacturing_updater_for_reset.self. Explaining that the jailbreak patches enable the cosole...
 

Sega Saturn Emulator Yabause is Ported to the PS3 GameOS

650°
200w ago - Today French site PS3Gen.fr (linked above) has released a Sega Saturn Emulator Yabause port on the PS3 GameOS for use with PlayStation 3 JailBreak devices and PSGroove.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

I've tested it and it's very laggy, won't boot at all.. the BIOS starts and then returns to the PS3 XMB as the BIOS.BIN is required on the ROOT of a USB flash drive, otherwise it will crash back to XMB.

To run Saturn games rename them to GAME.ISO and place them in the root of the USB stick, but be aware this is an early release so expect bugs including crashing and freezing.

As mentioned above, in order to use it you will need to Google for a copy of the Saturn BIOS to run this emulator as it is not included.

1400°
201w ago - Update #2: squarepusher2 has released several more updates to SNES9x PS3, the Super Nintendo Emulator for PlayStation 3, which are all available for download now HERE.

Update: A new SNES9x r2 binary is now available with changes noted HERE followed by a SNES9x v1.0.3 port by Alex793 which includes some more fixes for those interested.

I got my Teensy++ Thursday and decided to port SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) over to the PS3 as a little exercise to play with the Cell SDK.

It's pretty rough but it seems to work OK. It will load (uncompressed) ROMs off of /dev_usb000.

If anyone is interested, the code is linked above via GitHub with a binary attached below.

201w ago - Today garyopa at PSX-Scene has reported that Russian hacker GamerSuper has began a project for playing PSP games on Sony's PS3 entertainment system and shared a PoC video!

To quote from the video's caption: "Launching PSP game on PS3 - World's First Test

Here's a first video of launching PSP game on the PS3. It wasn't easy at all, I worked about a week without any breaks, a SDK which has recently leaked very helped me. I don't know why there was no in-game sound, seems I made some mistake when building a game last time.

There were some problems in controls (I mean some buttons were messed up, e.g. START became [], select didn't work at all), but I'm gonna fix it."
