A noobie question

Post by Samkrfc » May 18th, 2014, 1:43 am

Hello everyone, I've been looking into PS1 homebrew and I've been wondering, will I be able to play PS1 homebrew on the PS3?

If your PS3 is running a custom firmware, than probably yes. If it's running the official one, then no... In any case, if it works, it'll be using Sonys crappy PS1 emulator.

What about one of those 'test' development PS3s?

It's:
  • made by the same company; and
  • designed to play commercial PS1 games.
All versions of the PS3 are explicitly sold as backwards compatible with the PS1. Many people therefore use them for playing their classic PS1 titles.

PSX/PS1 on ps3 totally sucks. I know because I have PSX, PS2 and PS3 and can compare them all with REAL hardwares, not crappy software-bug emulated.

PSX on ps3:

- The colors are all WRONG;
- The emulation isn't even near of a REAL psx;
- A lot BUGS;
- Can't run all games, just a few of them;
- Other limitations.

Yes, the PSX emulation on the PS3 is absolutely shit. Sony should have hired NO$CASH ;)

Good, so we all agree that if we were to take a poll "does the PS3 have anything to do with PSX/PS1" then the overwhelming answer would be 'yes'.

Putting that unhelpful detour aside the question stands: does the PS3's PS1 emulator, of whatever quality, run CDRs if the console itself is a developer/test unit?

The PS3 runs my software

http://psx-scene.com/forums/content/rol ... date-4319/

As far as i know, it runs fine. Personally i've only run my game on ePSXe , a real PSX and a OUYA . Suprisingly i perfer the OUYA. It's easy plug & play once u get the free filepwn manager. I know my game also runs on a PSP. Honestly, anything that runs a Playstation game is cool with me as long as it can be played.
