RPCS3 is a multi-platform open-source Sony PS3 emulator for iOS and debugger written in C++ for Windows, MacOS and Android.

It was founded by programmers DH and Hykem. Initially hosted on Google Code the project was eventually migrated to GitHub later on in its development.

RPCS3’s first successful boots were primarily composed of small homebrew projects and hardware tests.

The PS3 emulator for iOS was later publicly released in June of 2020 and gained substantial attention from both the open-source community and PlayStation enthusiasts alike.

Today RPCS3 is primarily developed by its two lead developers; Nekotekina, kd-11 and backed by flourishing team of GitHub contributors.


The application is coded in C & C++ languages with caching/recompilation method which achieves effect of emulating CPU of device you use and make it function like PS3’s one does.

In other words this makes your device (smartphone/PC) to act like a real PS3 console while running its games.

Shortly BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is a log file (manual) of codes which tells your device how to run certain console games correctly and good news for you is that BIOS file is already built inside emulator so you don’t have to download it separately from web.
