Unless you want to play MGS4 or a bunch of obscure, weebshit then no.
it's only purpose is either
>mgs dedicated gaming station but honestly anon just emulate, thoose are HD remasters of mgs2 and mgs3, mgs4 is literally a movie and mgsv runs like shit as most other games do, still kino and I enjoyed it very much, if you are enterested pirate or get the legacy collection (portable ops missing)
>replay the 2007-2013 kinos, also ico, sotc, zone of the enders and some other ps2 titles
no. use RPCS3
every game is playable on rpcs3
No, not yet. But it is getting there. It's worth keeping a hacked PS3 around for certain things. For everything else, RCPS3 is clearly superior.
Dont talk shit, every game now doesnt boot up to a black screen, plenty of shit that hasnt reached playable state.
Original hardware is always superior to emulation, no matter what.
Except when emulation can play games that would be 720p/30fps at 4k/60 and with mods
depends on price obviously. overall it's one of the best gaming systems ever made when you install cfw. but also there's not much need for it in the modern times, so that afflicts the worthness of it. but that will vary from person to person.
Still has some exclusives and considering you will probably hack it, you will get a nice system to play PSone and PS2 games. The only real issue is that non-chink shit controllers are hard and expensive to find, is easier to just get a mayflash or brook adapter to connect whatever controller you like to actually play
macross 30 still doesn't emulate 100% so yes
Personally i still play on my PS3:
>Mortal Kombat 9 (aka the best mk)
>Spec Ops: The Line
>Monkey Island Special Edition Collection
>D&D: Chronicles of Mystara
>Street Fighter IV
Yeah and don't fall for the emulation meme. you'll play at low frames and res but the game will actually work with no interruptions
I agree. GoldenEye is so much better at 240p and 10fps.
GoldenEye is perfectly emulatable though, unlike most of the PS3 library

Here's your perfect emulation, bro
Here's your perfect hardware, bro.
PS3 is barely functional, getting one isnt a question at this point.
Hey i didn't deny low FPS in my first post. regardless, a lot of games aren't perfectly playable yet whether its graphical issues or general stability
Hey I didn't say emulation was perfect, but if you single out the platform and generational exclusives that aren't on PC, the majority emulate well.
What's the point of emulation if you aren't emulating console exclusives?
But that's exactly what I said?
Is it though?
What's the point of hardware when you can't push past 560p 12 fps?
Because it's a cheap console, not a powerful NASA pc? that's a stupid question, do better
>because it's a cheap piece of shit, and emulation is better?
Well that was a dumb answer. Do better.
PCSX2 is still barely functional, PS3 emulation isn't even a question at this point.
Yeah and don't fall for the hardware meme. You'll play at high frames and resolution and smile at coping 3rd worlders complaining about 'interruptions'
The OS is beyond slow, every game needs a slow as fuck install, and the games are getting expensive. Emulate, or get a 360 if you want multiplats. Multiplats run better, need no install and are 50% cheaper
Only if you are interested in playing PS3 exclusives. The vast majority of "classics" from that era can be played on Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Sony decided that wasn't important. So if you want to play Ridge Racer 7, Resistance 3, Tokyo Jungle, 3D Dot Game Heroes and others, you need to get a PS3.
>Those games are all shit and gay?
But I see so many people buying a PS3 for games like Dead Space, Metal Gear Rising and shit, it's emberassing.
I've been using mine a lot lately. A lot of stuff I had ignored from the period.
Its k if you still have it around and it is still working fine, but otherwise, no. If your ps3 runs correctly, you should definitely install a cheap 500gb ssd in it and hack it. The cfw is pretty comfy. FYI, in case it sounds like a jet engine after hacking it, its webMAN app being a shit. Just dont install that shit and you will be fine. Install only IRISMAN/standalone Movian instead of multiman/webman combo
For me, ps3 is the home of metal gear series and I still revisit the series there every once and then. I also keep an extra controller around for old fightans with my friends
Isn't that just because the PS3 runs hot as shit so it keeps the fans on max at all times to try and keep it from cooking itself
Yeah, when it comes to temps, ps3 gets pretty hot. It reaches 90C+ pretty fast. My guess is that multiman devs have increased the the fan speeds and lowered the bar when they reach max fan speed as default as an attempt to add years to it and to save you the effort to de-lid it, aka the only to fully repaste a ps3, but its super fucking risky.
However, with mulitman, it gets so fucking loud (especially when I run ps2 isos even with a cold console) that I'd rather let my ps3 naturally destroy itself from its high temperatures than getting a headache and ringing ears from the fan noise.
I also believe the factory default fan values are adequate enough to keep ps3 running.
Of course when my ps3 dies, I will use ps3emu exclusively for metal gear.
If it sounds like a jet engine, change your fan settings fucking retard. I have mine set to keep temperature at 70c and fan speed at 29%.
forgot to mention that I have the slim model, which doesn't run as hot as the launch fat models
I tried that, but I still was getting loud fan noise. In the end, I have just uninstalled it and the problem was solved.
True, used ps3 fats are pretty much on the brink of getting ylod. They are also a bitch to disassemble for maintenance
the emulator is great so no
I have the slim model. How difficult is to hack it? Retard easy?
It depends on when it was made, later slims and super slims are outright impossible.
Follow a guide to install hen because it is the only one that works with slim and super slim
Then install pkgi to directly download games and multiman + wembam to transfer games trough FTP and play them directly from the xmb menu
Pretty easy. Follow the instructions on video.
I got the super slim for 140 bucks and it was instant regrets. The HEN crashes a fucking lot forcing you to hard reboot each time it happens. The controller feel cheap and not durable at all and you are required to use the official ones unless you don't care about playing game with gyro motion. Some roms are still missing in the internet archive even after years of release like Time and Eternity missing out some dlcs. Also a lot of games got remastered on ps4.
Are you using webman mod?
Yes. Just hack that shit using hen
>tons of games and dlc can be downloaded trough pkgi
>you can transfer games from pc to ps3 with FTP
>you can play psOne, ps2 and psp games
It is a no brainer to hack it
I cant play armored core 2 and i tryed every ps2 launcher
Have you tried making it into a pkg and installing it directly to the ps3? It's retard proof. It's fully playable according to the wiki
I did it too
Have you tried playing the iso in an emulator? It might be a non-working iso. I just played AC2 on my superslim ps3 the other month and it's working fine.
Yes but my potato intel hd graphics/processor makes it play at 5fps on pcsx2 latest dtable version and textures wont load in latest version
That's weird. Are all versions of the game counted as playable on the iki? Maybe try the nopaystation discord. They could probably help
If you cant emulate on pc kinda but the not chip hacking is really limited you cant play armored core without buying the game or emulation
Yeah, unironically, it's the last PlayStation console with games.
Is MGS4 playable on RPCS3 yet?
No, NASA PCs only
