RPCS3 is a multi-platform open-source Sony Play Station 3 emulator for PC and debugger written in C++ for Windows x86 and x64 (32 or 64 bit), Linux and smartphone.

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 emulator was later publicly released in June of 2012 and gained substantial attention from both the open-source community and Play Station 3 enthusiasts alike.

RPCS3 is dubbed one of the most complex video game console emulators of all time with an endless goal to effectively emulate the Sony PlayStation 3 and all of its aspects.

RPCS3 is under steady development and the binaries they produce are highly experimental. System requirements may vary depending on your hardware configuration.

For the best experience, users should be running within the recommended system requirements.

It cannot guarantee the performance of system specifications below the minimum requirements, but you’re always welcome to experiment.

Do not expect stable performance or consistent compatibility as changes are always being made to the codebase.
