ESX 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 ESX 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.


ESX PS3 is capable of running high-end games with greater reliability.

The emulator supports 1080p resolution, which will boost your gaming experience on mobile devices.

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.

ESX PS3 emulator was first hosted on Google Code and was eventually migrated to GitHub later on in its development.

The developers are working hard to make all games playable on the emulator, it might show you some glitches and frame drops, just you have to reduce graphics for better performance.
