RPCS3 can now play all released PlayStation 3 games

The PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 has been making amazing strides for a few years now, allowing PC owners to enjoy games that are still exclusive to Sony’s console, like Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption and the first few entries in the God of War series, to name a few.

Yesterday, the developer confirmed that another very important milestone had been reached, as the emulator is now capable of running every game released for the PlayStation 3. Although this does not mean that every game is in a playable state, there is no denying that this is an event. Great bodes well for the entire PS3 library finally becoming playable on PC.

Even when a PlayStation 3 game becomes playable with the RPCS3 emulator, the developer never stops improving the performance. Earlier this year, the performance of titles like Metal Gear Solid 4, Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted 2 and 3 has been greatly improved, which makes playing these two titles stuck on PlayStation 3 on PC a very good option.

The RPCS3 emulator is now available for free download. Additional information about the emulator, its compatibility list, latest and upcoming updates, and much more can be found on its official website.

RPCS3 is an open source cross-platform Sony PlayStation 3 emulator and debugger written in C++ for Windows, Linux and BSD. Founded by programmers DH and Hykem. Initially hosted on Google Code, the project was eventually migrated to GitHub later during its development. The first successful RPCS3 boots consisted primarily of small homebrew projects and hardware tests. The emulator was later released publicly in June 2012 and gained huge interest from both the open source community and PlayStation fans alike. Today, RPCS3 is mainly developed by two major developers; Nekotekina, kd-11 and supported by a thriving team of GitHub contributors.
