RPCS3 is a free multi platform emulator that's completely open-source. It only emulates PlayStation 3 games, but it's a lot of these available. It is mainly developed by two programmers, Nekotekina and kd-11. It doesn't permit any PlayStation 3 peripheral control use as of now, but there are a lot of usable gamepads available to play with, and most types and brands of controllers can be used to play each of the games. {To download, you'll need a 64-bit version of either Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 9, or Windows 10. |} Modern versions of Linux also needs to be fully supported by RPCS3. It might also work with other hardware, though Linux and Windows appear to be advocated (For a much better gameplay experience). You can download RPCS3 from and install it following its instructions.


In order to install games, you will need to get them from either a physical PlayStation 3 games console you have access to or from a Blu-ray drive, though only certain types of Blu-ray drives can be used to set up games to use with RPCS3. This can be inconvenient. According to the programmer, 1876 games are currently playable, which is an excellent amount if you are wanting to play a large number of different video games from a PlayStation 3 console on your computer. At the moment, online multiplayer is unfortunately only available in a really small selection of games, which is inconvenient if you want to play with someone that is not near you. This could be improved in the future, but as of right now it seems unlikely. Local multiplayer, however, is fortunately completely supported, which means that you can use it in most available multiplayer games that could have a local multiplayer option when playing on a real console. You can use up to 7 controllers at exactly the exact same time, meaning you can play with a larger group of people if necessary. As of March 2020, there's now support offered for a number of PlayStation 3D games, which means you can play games that offer 3D capabilities (3D effects such as the ones in 3D films ).
