The PS3 has become an emulating powerhouse!

Rate this Entry
Until the recent PS3 hacks the original xbox was the go to console for playing emulators of retro games. Now thanks to the work of some diligent hackers you can have a similar experience with your PS3 console. You no longer need to buy a jailbreak device but you do need to learn how to hack your console.

If you are on 3.55 firmware and you want to play home brew and emulators you should definitely get Kmeaw's CFW. http://ps3crunch.com/installing-kmea...r-support.html

This custom firmware will allow you to play back up games as well. The one caveat however is that it is difficult to play your ps3 online and you might get banned if you do.

However if like me you are not an online player and you want to play retro games in high definition (my xbox looks very muddy even on my CRT TV) then get some emulators. Some of the emulators like SNES and NES have special shaders that make your old games look good even on a non CRT display.

There are some exciting emulators on the way. I myself can't wait for the dolphin emulator to be finished. Imagine playing Wii games with a playstation move controller. Already there are several great emulators that work almost perfectly on the PS3.
Will the PS3 become the new all in one emulation machine? What do you guys think?

    Until they stop selling the PS3 and it's been phased out, I'll just keep using my Xbox. Still, it looks cool as hell.
