The developer of the PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 has announced that the program is now able to run all the games and applications known to the platform. This does not mean that all games are playable. This percentage is currently 63.5 percent.
It’s the first time that there are no other games and apps in the Nothing category on Compatibility List to stand RPCS3 writes on Twitter. This category was reserved for programs that did absolutely nothing when trying to run in the emulator. The team also says it wants to get rid of the loading class. It currently contains six titles. They start, but do not go past the loading screen.
This achievement does not mean that all or nearly all PlayStation 3 games are now playable via the emulator on a PC. There are still 186 titles in the Intro category, which means it doesn’t overload the game’s Intro. Moreover, there are 987 titles in the list that can be entered into the game, but it does not receive the original playable game.
There are now 2,054 titles in the Playable category. This represents 63.5% of the total. To qualify for this category, games must be able to complete Playable Achievements, without Game Breaking errors or glitches.
RPCS3 is an open source PlayStation 3 emulator from Sony, which runs on Windows, Linux, and BSD platforms. The emulator has been in development since 2011 and is still under maintenance. Among other things, the team has long-term plans to enable booting the game from original PS3 discs and support for microphones, cameras, and USB accessories.
