PS3 Emulator

Run PlayStation 3 Games on PC

You can now play PS3 games on PC using ESX Emulator. ESX is written in C++, it uses a decompiled PS3 XMB kernel to archive native emulation of PS3 games with limitations like PSN support. ESX runs most of the PS3 exclusive titles at native graphics without any glitches but it requires a powerful set of hardware for that! This project is meant for research and understanding of emulation to further extend the console development.
