RPCS3 update improves Insomniac PS3 engine games emulation

RPCS3 update addresses rendering issue in Insomniac PlayStation 3 games with RSX ROP emulation update

Insomniac fans rejoice! RPCS3, the PlayStation 3 emulator, has recently received an update that addresses rendering issues in many Insomniac PS3 titles. Affected games include Ratchet & Clank: A Crack In Time, and Resistance 2. This fix improves the visuals of both games by increasing emulation accuracy. Specifically, foliage rendering now works correctly.

This new fix was added with version v0.0.31-16347 of RPCS3. The improved ROP output rounding precision delivered by this update was achieved thanks to the work of kd-11, a major contributor to the RPCS3 project.

Earlier this week, a new update for RPCS3 was released that significantly boosts emulation performance for low-end CPU users. This update delivered staggering performance gains of 30% and 100% in Persona 5 and Demon’s Soul respectively in a CPU-limited scenario.

The RPCS3 project is continuing to improve at a rapid pace. Recently the RPCS3 team celebrated the fact that over 70% of PS3 games were now playable using RPCS3. Updates for the emulator are being released very frequently, further improving the state of PS3 emulation on PC.

Today, PC is the best place to play many PlayStation 3 games. After all, RPCS3 can play many PlayStation 3 titles at higher resolutions and framerates than a PlayStation 3 console. Additionally, some games can also be played with mods using RPCS3.

Congratulations to the RPCS3 team for their continued support of PlayStation 3 emulation on PC. Thank you for your efforts, and we look forward to seeing how RPCS3 continues to improve.
