Possibility of Wii games on PS3? (theory)
Possibility of Wii games on PS3? (theory) –
since a moderately powerful pc can play wii games at an ok speed, wouldnt a quad core ibm cell do it better with the rsx graphics card?
Has anyone gotten wii controllers to sync with the ps3, and if this was possible we could solve the sensor issue with a candle or two(it works, you can use a wii mote with 2 candles and no sensor)
cant we just port Dolphin to the ps3... i understand that we havent even gotten a ps1 emulator (which is sad, and i hope people are trying to make a working one) but once we have access to the rsx card we can make powerful emulators... right?
i understand we are far from making a wii emu but isnt it in a close time frame though? and i mean, i can run ps1 games on my laptop,(which is weak) at normal fps, so why cant the ps1 emulators function on the ps3? (just asking)
Is the ps3 quad core, i thought it was one core with co-processors

What's weird is I was on the phone last night with a $ony tech swore up and down that you could play ps1 games on the ps3, he said he does it all the time on his slim, and the only thing they removed was ps2 backwards compatibility. That can't be right can it??? I have a backwards compatible myself, so I can't even test that. But has anyone tried popping an authentic ps1 game in their slim?
The dolphin emulator is running already on the xbox 360, porting it to the ps3 shouldn't be too difficult. I'm not saying that off the top of my head; the ps3 and xbox 360 both use risc processors, so a ppc based emu should be pretty easy to port from one to the other. So I see Wii and Gamecube capabilities as being something to expect, once someone starts doing it of course.
Wii controllers on the ps3 would require additional drivers that aren't built into the system. AFAIK, adding a new driver into gameOS is NOT an easy process.
well of course it isnt easy, i was just wondering if we are close to having this, because if we are, i would love to have some wii games in HD...
and Ni72ous... i dont exactly know about the processor but it has 4 cores of gaming and 2 for security... i think
but wait, isnt it possible to make a hardware (like the ps2 emotion engine) on a usb and have it act as if its inside? wouldnt that be possible... it would be like a usb key that enables ps2 playback... i think this could be possible
dude ive played tekken 2 (i think thats the one) on my ps3 official disk though an it runs flawlessly plus in the game saection of the xmb you can create a ps1 memory card wth r u guys talking about???
You have always been able to play ps1 on ur ps3.........put ur damn disk in the ps3 and it will work haha Only thing we dont have is a ps1 emulator if thats what you are looking for on the ps3. Just buy the damn ps1 games for it, its cheap enough
Its very possible. But may require some waiting, for the developer and the development... cant wait.
and i think there was an article about sony or devs making a usb hardware for the ps3 to make it faster/stronger, cant remember where...
and im talking about emulation here... i know ps1 games are playable by disc, i want backups to be playable, i have clocktower, the disc is scratched but my backup is fine,,,, so yeah... i dont like playing on the pc emu, and i would love to see a ps3 one that has hd graphics/shaders
