You cant even emulate N64 games perfectly so no.

If Sony sued somebody for posting PS3 hack videos, I imagine they wouldn't have any problem suing somebody for that.

it will come in a few years...
theres a ps2 emulator and last gen people said there would never be one

if there are games worth playing someone will make one... however if there arent games worth playing noone would bother making it

when the emulator do come out, maybe then can we finally play ps3 games at 1080 with 60fps

It won't be playable anytime soon. My laptop is about as strong as the PS3 and it can barely handle PS2 emulation. Computers aren't strong enough, especially since the Cell will be a pain in the ass to emulate by anything other than raw power.

thats because laptops usually have weak cpus... emulation relies on processing power over gpu
my computer can run the ps2 emu flawlessly (but then my computer is next gen ready... it can even run unreal 4 engine and the new square enix engine at high>ultra according to the specs of the demo rig)

Seeing as high end computers can emulate PS2 games with antialiasing, smoothing, and filters to make them look much better than they did on the PS2 I'd give it about 5 years until we have a functioning PS3 emulator (will take much longer to get to a good state)

PS3 CPU architecture isn't anywhere near Intel and industry standards so this will take quite a while.
