I believe Yellow Dog Linux would be :)
I dont own a PS3 so I cant tell you for sure though

Yes, Eviltaco is right. YDL and use Snex9x for snes emulation its still not all perfect though. Im not so sure about the Genesis emulation.

I saw a youtube video once where someone was playing Sonic 3 fullscreen and fullspeed.

yeah I saw MvsC at a high fps running on ps3 on youtube also, I would try it but I prefer arcade games on my (halfway made) arcade cabinet im building ;)

July 9th, 2008, 22:39
Is it one of those MAME arcade cabinets?

July 9th, 2008, 23:00
yep, just gotta finish wiring some things. Im adding a coin slot just for kicks hah

okay I went too offtopic sorry.

for the emus on the ps3 I think u can just download them with firefox while on YDL, or get a flash usb and drag them in. Heres a beginners guide to installing mame on the PS3

I will look for the snes one in a bit.
