PS3 Emulator Will Now Boot Every Game Ever Released On The Console
 

 
RPCS3, an emulator I’ve been writing about since 2016, but which first began in 2011, has come along way since it made its first tentative steps towards making PS3 games playable on a PC. From those humble beginnings, the team behind it have just announced a huge milestone: everything ever released on the PS3 will now boot up.

Earlier today the RPCS3 team tweeted:

We’re delighted to announce that RPCS3 now has a total of ZERO games in the Nothing status! This means that all known games and applications at least boot on the emulator, with no on-going regressions that prevent games from booting. We look forward to emptying out Loadable too!

There have been over 6,000 games and programs tracked over the emulator’s lifespan, so to get every single one of them to some degree of booting up is an incredible achievement. It’s important to note, though, that of the emulator’s five tiers of playability, only one—“Playable”—is worth your time. The others are saddled with huge numbers of glitches, performance issues, or simply the fact they refuse to load past the title screens.

Clearing out the “Nothing” tier, made up of “games that don’t initialise properly,” don’t load at all and/or crash the emulator, rocks. But it’s not like every single PS3 game ever released will now run smoothly and without issue on your reasonably modern PC. As of today, 63.53% of PS3 games are “playable” on the emulator, which means 36.47% are not; still a hugely impressive number, but just something to bear in mind!

As they mention in the announcement tweet, they, “look forward to emptying out Loadable too!” after this. This shouldn’t take too long, since only 0.19% of games remain in that state. Actually only 5.75% are at the “Intro” stage after that, meaning they’ll boot but not make it past the menus, so it hopefully won’t be long until those two tiers are cleared out as well. If you want to check out a specific game’s compatibility with the emulator, you can do that here.

I saw this news...aside from the first 2 Infamous Games and Metal Gear Solid Guns of the Patriots(Which needs a PC Port so bad...I'd rather have a PS5 or PC Port of that over any remake at this point since Kojima wouldn't be involved) I can't really think of anything I'd wanna go back to that library and play....a good portion of the stuff on there was already ported elsewhere or just not worth going back to.

^^^Does this emulator play MGS4 well?

I’d rather play a Remaster on PC too. Free all those PS3 titles.

The progress they've made with this is incredible considering the PS3 architecture.

There was a time people thought Demon's Souls would take like 10 years to get to a fully playable state, they did it in a few and it's easily the best version of the original.

My son and I were talking about Infamous 2 and how we wish they'd at least make a PS4 port. One my favorite games of all time.

Anyone know if the framerates are unlocked? Or nah. I know BotW was modded to hell and back. You can do what you want to that game, just wondering if I'll be able to play them at 60fps

Protip: If you can't play something on the PS3 emulator, try the 360 emulator.

A lot of those games that boot could still be unplayable essentially btw

Only 2,000 of those can be played from start to finish.

Amazing work tho
