Playstation 3 emulators

|RPCS3||Windows, Linux||0.0.2 Alpha||✓||✗|
- RPCS3 is in its early stages, and it shows a lot of promise. It can boot many commercial games right now, mostly at low fps. But it can also run some games at playable speed and with no major glitches.
- Nucleus is one man project aiming for LLE, some AOT emulation, and portability.
- Short Waves was made by an unknown developer. It could run a few complex tests that RPCS3 couldn't at the time it released, but it hasn't been updated since 2014.
The complexity of the Cell processor architecture, plus the fact that it would take significantly more resources to get such games emulated (in comparison, see specifications in Dolphin and PCSX2 for their respective consoles), makes emulating and running games a challenge. Expect game-breaking issues of one kind or another in the vast majority of titles at this point in time.
