PlayStation 3 Emulator RPCS3 New Video Showcases Major Improvements For inFamous, God of War 3 And More


The team behind the ever-improving PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 recently shared a new video, showcasing the most recent improvements made to the emulation of several high-profile titles.

The video, which can be found below, showcases the improvements for inFamous 1 and 2, Skate 1, 2 and 3, and God of War 3. The last entry of the series to be released on PlayStation 3 runs great now, and it's very close to being fully playable.

RPCS3 Latest Updates Bring Major Performance Improvements for Metal Gear Solid 4, Red Dead Redemption and Persona 5

Back in October, Red Dead Redemption emulation has been vastly improved. The open-world game by Rockstar is not yet in a playable state, as frame rate is still bad, but things will definitely improve in the near future.

The PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 can now be downloaded from the emulator's 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.
