Submission + - 1,600 PS3 Games Can Be Played At Up To 10K UHD Resolution On Windows PCs Now (polygon.com)

dryriver writes: An impressive open source Playstation 3 emulator called RCPS3 (https://rpcs3.net/) has reached the point where almost 1,600 Playstation 3 games can be played emulated on Windows PCs at up to 10K UHD resolution now. PS3 games and model textures in particular look much sharper on PC in UHD than they did on the original PS3 console (sharpness demonstration video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...). The developers state that on an up to date gaming PC with a decent GPU, emulated PS3 games can be run at the full framerate of the original console version but at 4K UHD resolution. Development of the emulator and reverse engineering of the PS3's custom graphics hardware is still ongoing — a few of the game videos on the emulator's Youtube channel show small glitches like polygons flickering on and off in some games. But it appears that playing PS3 games emulated on non-Sony hardware may soon become as easy as playing, say, old Amiga or Nintendo games emulated already is today. This is an impressive feat considering that the PS3 hardware is far more complex and difficult to emulate fully than the much simpler hardware of older 16-bit computers and consoles.
