    More PS3 emulator news. The team that made a N64 emulator for the Wii is now in the process of making one for the PS3! Does anyone here have any experience using the Wii version? Is it better or worse than the PC versions?

    It sucks, it's worthless, it's a piece of crap, it's ... okay dammit you got me. I've never even tried it.

    It does look interesting though. :P

    Looks like the wii N64 emulator is slow, runs at only a few fps for most games. I'm sure the PS3 version if done right will work great. I mean if the original xbox can halfway emulate the N64 then it's likely that the PS3 can do a better job. It certainly has the horsepower whereas the Wii is just a game cube with motion controls.

    Wonder how sixaxis would translate to Wii controls. Or....(gasp) could you use PSMove in the Wii emulation? I'm sure the tech used for motion controls is much different though....

    Now you can play DIVX AVI MKV and many other file types directly from your ps3. No more need to use your computer as a media server because the ps3 just became one on its own. This is a new homebrew program for hacked ps3's with custom firmware like Kmeaw's. The best thing about it is the new iteration can play 1080p MKV files natively. Check it out: http://ps3.dashhacks.com/2011/04/07/...does-1080p-now

    Stella has been released for the PS3! Yes you heard me right finally you can play some classic Atari 2600 games on your overpriced PS3 gaming supercomputer. This is of course if you have hacked your ps3 and are running a custom firmware. This is just an initial release and the developer has some bugs to work out but it already has keyboard support. Check it out and download it if you are one of the many sporting cfw on your PS3. http://www.ps3hax.net/2011/04/releas...-vcs-emulator/

    Dosbox has been ported to the PS3. Play all your old Dos games. This is an early build so there will be issues. http://www.ps3hax.net/showthread.php?t=22318

    For those of you with hacked PS3s here are some prepackaged dos games no dos emulator needed just install the package and play the game. All of these are free ware games so there is no worry of copyright infringement. Some of them are full games some are just demos. List so far:

    Clyde's Adventure, Sango Fighter, Crystal Caves, Jelly Bean, Blood, One Must Fall 2097, Hocus Pocus, Blake Stone - Aliens of Gold, Wacky Wheels, Fuzzy's World of Miniature Space Golf, Wolfenstein 3D, Jazz Jackrabbit,BIOMENACE 1, BIOMENACE 2, BIOMENACE 3, ZZT GAME MAKER, SCORCHED EARTH Skyroads, Star Gunner, THE LAST EICHHOF ,ElectroMan, Sky Roads Xmas Edition, GOD OF THUNDER, CD MAN.

    More are on the way and there is a tutorial on the linked site to make your own. So let's say you own the full retail copy of an old dos game you could substitute your files into the package creator and make your own installable.

    Find them on PSX Scene: http://psx-scene.com/forums/f190/goo...9/index10.html
