RPCS3 is a free multi platform emulator that's completely open-source. It only emulates PlayStation 3 games, but it has a lot of these available. It is mainly developed by two programmers, Nekotekina and kd-11. It doesn't permit any PlayStation 3 peripheral controller use as of now, but there are a lot of usable gamepads available to play with, and most types and brands of controllers may be used to play all 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 should also be fully supported by RPCS3. It might also work with other hardware, even though Linux and Windows seem to be advocated (To get a better gameplay experience). You can download RPCS3 from https://rpcs3.onl/ and install it following its instructions.



In order to install games, you will have to get them from either a physical PlayStation 3 console you have access to or from a Blu-ray drive, though only certain kinds of Blu-ray drives can be used to set up games to use with RPCS3. This can be inconvenient. According to the developer, 1876 games are currently playable, which is an excellent amount if you are looking to play a large variety of different video games from a PlayStation 3 console in your computer. At the moment, online multiplayer is unfortunately only available in a very small selection of games, which can be inconvenient if you would like 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, meaning you can use it in all available multiplayer games which could have a local multiplayer option when playing on a real console. You may use up to 7 controllers at exactly the exact same time, meaning you can play with a bigger group of people if necessary. As of March 2020, there is now support offered for numerous PlayStation 3D games, which means you can play games offering 3D capabilities (3D effects like the ones in 3D movies).
