No. You cannot do that. Today's hardware would not be fast enough to run a PS3 emulator.

Actually it's not the speed of the hardware but the difference of hardware. A PS3 is not using an x86 processor.

Hence why you need an emulator :) . And emulator would need much faster CPU than it is available today.

Nope. There has not been an emulator released yet.

Check back in 5 to 10 years.

Actually no you wouldn't. a ps3 has 512mb in all of usable ram. there are no computers that are still sold with nearly that low amount of ram. standard now is 4gb, and processors are much faster too. the other person is right. ps3 is built on an arm processor, for which you would need an arm emulator. theese are hard to make. that is why there isnt an emulator, because people are too lay to make an emulator.

ps3 is a cell processor not an arm processor. arm has 30,000 transistors so its only good for mobile and smart devices. not full on gaming hardware...
arm is a british based companies design. while cell is the result of a partnership of sony and ibm which consisted of 234million transistors...

seriously who did you think you were gonna fool by blurting that crap out...
sometimes its better to keep your mouth shut and people think you a fool. than open it and confirm it.

See you need to go to a cd shop and ask him to give you dvd 9 of this game(god of war 3,assasins creed 3) and u can buy the joystick of xbox it is compatible on windows and have fun guranteed..!!
You dont have to waste ur time downloading an emulator its like 39 gb and then if it doesnt work??

Its not that simple though. For example, you have to make all the low-level timings bus accurate. You have to emulate the Cells...unique memory management scheme. You have to deal with the overhead involved in the OS scheduler, rather then dispatching instructions directly to the CPU. All this combines to leech performance. And this is BEFORE you do a POWER7 to x86 conversion...

I mean, sheesh, the Gamecube has a ~400MHz processor, and the Dolphin emulator has SIGNIFICANT speed issues in several titles. Working off that, you realize why emulating a 7-core CPU @ 3.2GHz is quite impossible.

As a rule of thumb, it takes 10x the processing capacity to emulate a system in realtime.

That being said, there is a VERY early emulator that does little more then emulate the PS3 BIOS. Can't even boot the system menu yet though, and lacks audio and graphic support.

Their may not be an emu how ever their are plenty of ps3 games that were made for the PC, all you need is either the xbox 360 wired controller of the ps3 wired. Usb drivers come with the product just plug in and play those PC games. You can buy them online or at the local gameing store. Or even pirate the games from online, though not recommended as you should buy the game legally. So you don't need and Emu when you have a brain.
