PlayStation 3 Emulator RPCS3 Can Now Run Armored Core V, Haze, Afro Samurai In 4K Resolution
Work on the PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 is still going strong, and a few more titles are now playable in 4K resolution.
Recently, YouTube user JohnGodGames Emus shared a couple new videos showing several PlayStation 3 titles - Haze, Afro Samurai, Armored Core V, Clash of the Titans and Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 2 - running on PC. The first three titles are shown running at 4K resolution, while the latter two are just shown running on the emulator with a couple of graphics glitches and other issues. You can check out the videos below.
Last month, another console exclusive game, Nier Replicant / Gestalt, has become playable on PC thanks to RPCS3. The emulator can also run the game at 4K resolution. Plenty of other issues for several games have been fixed in the past months, making games such as Red Dead Redemption playable on PC.
The RPCS3 emulator is now available for download. More information can be found on its official website.
RPCS3 was founded by programmers DH and Hykem. The developers initially hosted the project on Google Code and eventually moved it to GitHub later in its development. The emulator was first able to successfully boot and run simple homebrew projects and was then later publicly released in June of 2012. Today RPCS3 is dubbed one of the most complex video game console emulators of all time with an endless goal to effectively emulate the Sony PlayStation 3 and all of its aspects.
The goal of this project is to experiment, research, and educate on the topic of PlayStation 3 emulation that can be performed on compatible devices and operating systems. All information was obtained legally by purchasing PlayStation 3 hardware and software. Additional information was obtained from various sources on the internet that include but is not limited to system hardware and software documentation.
