RPCS3 Emulator

RPCS3 is a free multi platform emulator that's completely open-source. It only emulates PlayStation 3 games, but it's a lot of them available. It's primarily developed by two programmers, Nekotekina and kd-11. It does not allow any PlayStation 3 peripheral controller use as of today, but there are a lot of usable gamepads available to play with, and most types and brands of controllers may be used to play each of the games. {To download, you will need a 64-bit version of either Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 9, or Windows 10. |} Modern versions of Linux should also be completely supported by RPCS3. It may also work with other hardware, though Linux and Windows seem to be advocated (For a much better gameplay experience). You can download RPCS3 from https://rpcs3.onl/ and install it following its instructions.

In order to install games, you will have to get them from either a physical PlayStation 3 games console you have access to or from a Kinect drive, though only certain types of Blu-ray drives can be used to install games to use with RPCS3. This is sometimes inconvenient. According to the programmer, 1876 games are currently playable, which is a great amount if you are wanting to play a large number of different video games out of a PlayStation 3 console in your computer. At the moment, online multiplayer is unfortunately only available in a really small selection of games, which is inconvenient if you would like to play with someone that's not near you. This may be improved in the future, but as of right now it appears unlikely. Local multiplayer, however, is fortunately completely supported, meaning you can use it in most available multiplayer games which could have a local multiplayer option when playing on a real console. You can use up to 7 controllers at the same time, meaning you can play with a larger group of people if needed. As of March 2020, there's now support offered for numerous PlayStation 3D games, which means you can play games that offer 3D capabilities (3D effects such as the ones in 3D films ).
