Default NES Emulator for PS3.

This is REALLY cool. A working NES emulator for the PS3 ported to Java, it does not need to boot any other OS, it runs straight from he XMB, using BD-J...

http://ps3mods.blogspot.com/2008/08/...bd-j-hack.html

I ran a DigDug NES ROM I have, and it worked a treat (no sound as yet), but otherwise perfectly playable...

Homebrew on PS3, without the security of the sysem being compromised (it's just using BD-J VM, in a unconventional way).

You can also get SameGame for BD-J and PS3...

http://forums.qj.net/showthread.php?t=142966

I reckon this could be huge, next step a homebrew plugin API, and java homebrew launcher, so you can have more than 1 game on your USB stick...

Doesn't this fall under pirating?

Good question, does having non paid for copies of a game that has not been in circulation since the early 90s make this illegal?

Is hacking the PS3 illegal?

There have been legal battles over this, I can't remember the results but I'm sure google does... Anyway I'm glad there's finally a console on the market with enough horse power to run NES games in emmulation, if only the Wii could do this....Oh wait

you will not regret hacking your PSP. It takes on a whole new life with CFW.

Customize your XMB
Customize your GameBoot
Play your PSP games from your MS - not only can you store multiple games on your MS, but it helps improve loading times.
Play PSX games from your MS - PSN and Custom PSX games
Play Homebrew Games - including emulators
the list goes on...

You can always go back to OFW if you find you don't like CFW.
