    Default PS3SX-PS3 emulator

    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.

    PSX BIOS File: :Removed. Find it on the PSGroove site:

    PRE - RELEASE PS3SX 29/11/2010

    PS3SX PCSX port on PS3 using PS3 SDK and psl1ght it's a hybrid for the pre-release. No source code will be available only when i completely port the emulator to psl1ght. Before xmas i will update it with a new GUI, save state, and cheat code. This emulator can only work on 3.41 retail not tried yet on older version.

    Support in this pre-release version:

    * 2 Players
    * All iso formats *.iso *.bin *.mds *.img
    * psx homebrew *.psx and *.exe
    * Save works for player 1 & 2
    * Sound support CDDA and XA
    * Full screen
    * Full Speed

    I'm using PCSX-DF core with the ppc dynarec the dyanrec work already on this version of ps3sx with libkammy god bless AerialX for the libkammy and i'm using the cellframework for sound only.

    My thanks go to AerialX , drk||Raziel , pcsx Team and pcsx-df team for the original source code , psxgroovy at PSXGROOVY.COM - It's Groovy Baby! for the dongle sample PEOPS for this good plugin and Mathieulh. All plugins come from PEOPS

    News Source: Exclusive: PS3SX PSX Emulator Released (via) PSGroove

    Another awesome emulator, though until save-states and visual improvements are implemented, I really don't see the need for this over the - stock official - PS1 emulator. Though I guess it's pretty damned good for Jailbreak-state machines


    Thanks to Talmagal for finding this out, but to avoid getting a black screen on load, the BIOS file must be named like this;


    And thanks to Remainnameless for this;

    Your external HDD must be connected to the right-most USB port (top-most if your PS3 is vertical standing)
    Originally Posted by dlanor
    The 'roms' must be placed on a USB drive, to be placed in the rightmost USB slot (on a horizontal slim PS3 anyway) and that drive must contain ONLY the following three folders:

    "\bios\" == This folder is where you must place a valid PS1 bios properly named ("SCPH1001.bin")
    "\MC\" == This folder is where you or the emulator can put properly named MC files ("Mcd001.mcr", "Mcd002.mcr")
    "\psxrom\" == This folder is where you must place the PS1 game image files

    In addition to those three folders the emulator will add a file named "emuLog.txt".
    It is recommended that you avoid placing anything else on the USB drive, to avoid confusing the emulator.
    And you should not have any other USB device plugged in at the same time.
    So you need to remove your jailbreak device before starting the emulator.

    It is also my experience that only the main image file should be included (".img", ".bin", etc) even though most backup formats use extra files (".ccd", ".sub", ".cue"). Those latter files should thus NOT be included on the USB drive. When I tried that the emulator just locked up (probably failed to build its content list properly).

    That policy will of course have to change later on, if this emulator is ever to have a full-fledged release version, since at least the ".sub" files are needed for games using subchannel-based copy-protection (such games are presumably not working at all with this alpha version), while the ".cue" files are normally used to specify CDDA tracks for games that have such in addition to the CDROM tracks (such games probably miss some sounds/music with this version).

    Be aware that this emulator is far too limited and bug-ridden at this stage to provide an enjoyable overall experience. So far every session of mine with this emulator has ended with me having to power-off the PS3 by external circuit breaker, after losing all response to the gamepad as well as to the power/standby button at the console front.
