Artemis emulator for Android
Artemis PS3 is a multi-platform open-source Sony Play Station 3 emulator and debugger written in Java compatible with Android OS devices.
The purpose of Artemis PS3 emulator project is to completely and accurately emulate the Sony Play Station 3 Computer Entertainment System in its entirety with the power of open-source community and reverse engineering.
The developers goal is to preserve the legacy of the Play Station 3 hardware and its vast library by bringing it and its exclusives to the mobile platform.
The team want to achieve this by targeting and supporting multiple operating systems as well as being compatible with a wide range of smartphone hardware with realistic requirements.
Artemis PS3 emulator was first hosted on Google Code and was eventually migrated to GitHub later on in its development.
The emulator’s first successful game boot were primarily composed of smaller homebrew projects and focused hardware tests.
The emulator was later publicly released in June of 2020 for Android and gained substantial attention from both the open-source community and Play Station enthusiasts alike.
The project is currently maintained and organized by a unique cast of characters, all with meaningful roles to contribute to different aspects of the project.
Whether it’s working on the emulator directly, coordinating community efforts or even keeping this very website current, everyone plays a role that adds to the bigger picture.
Internal team members aren’t the only contributors; a lot of the progress made in making Play Station 3 emulation possible on smartphones is thanks to the many developers they’ve received contributions from in their GitHub community.
While many developers do come and go, they do welcome anyone and everyone who is interested in improving the codebase.
In order to run the application correctly, it is necessary to meet the minimum requirements given in the table below.
|OS version||Android 9.0 (or higher)|
|CPU||Octa core 2.0+ Ghz|
|RAM||6 GB (8 GB recommended)|
|Disk space||50 MB|
It is still possible to install the app on devices not mentioned above, but we cannot guarantee its proper functioning.
We recommend backing up the device on which the app will be installed before performing any installation of third-party apps not from the official app Store.
There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the link below.
The last version implements the following new features:
- Improve SPU/PPU LLVM recompiler compatibility, add more optimizations
- Implement parametrized PPU/SPU Interpreters reusing current LLVM IR generator, remove original hard-coded interpreters and make LLVM mandatory
- Make journaling VFS layer or something that fits, properly implementing some missing features like case sensitivity
- Fix any remaining RSX regressions
- Fix surface cache leaks
- Merge RCB+RDB and WCB+WDB and make the new ‘Read Buffers’ option enabled by default
- Rework RSX <-> Cell synchronization framework to be more cohesive
This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.
You will need to manually update the app by installing the new version from the APK file; the previous app will be replaced automatically.
All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
