View Full Version : PS3SX PSX Emulator Released for PlayStation 3

November 30th, 2010, 00:47

An anonymous source has contacted us with some exciting, exclusive news. He has released a PSX emulator for PS3, entitled PS3SX. The emu is a port of PCSX to the PS3. It runs at full speed, full screen, and supports CDDA and XA audio. This pre-release also features 2 player support, saving, and iso formats *.iso *.bin *.mds *.img.

Currently the source code has not been released, but it will be once the emu is completely ported using just the PSL1GHT SDK. PS3SX will run on all retail 3.41 units (fat and slim). Currently it is untested on older firmwares and does not work on debug units (PS3 Test units).

Instructions: Install PKG file on PS3. Either use the folders from the rar file, or make "bios" "MC" and "psxrom" folders in the root of a USB drive. Download PSX bios file below, and place it in "bios" folder. Place legally owned PSX backup ISO's in the "psxrom" folder. Run emulator and play!

Please note there is currently a bug with this pre-release. You can only quit the emulator when running a game. If you attempt to exit to XMB at the rom menu, the emulator will freeze.

This is excellant news!!!!!!

I hope this emulator will have the ability to smoothen the graphics out and not make them look pixelated.

Kerp up the great work!!

why a ps1 emulator at all for the ps3 when the ps3 already plays ps1 games?

Unless or course its for use or isos i guess!

Pretty neat but I prefer to play my PS1 games on my PSP. Still, its always nice to have the option of playing PS1 backups on the PS3.

Agreed, it would be nice to be able to finally retire my poor wornout PS2. It has been patched up so many times. Thank heavens for duct tape.
