PS3 Plays PC Games? Hardly

Do I even need to try to refute this one? Or is posting a link to the article to give y’all a good laugh good enough? I think I’ll go for the latter, though I’ll give a small comment.

This post quotes TransGaming, which makes Windows games work under Linux. Then it postulates that since Linux will run on the PS3, that these games could also run on the PS3.

The main reason why this won’t work? PS3 uses a Cell processor, not a Pentium. So the emulation would have to emulate both Windows AND the Pentium, and that is (a) way too slow and (b) fraught with so many pitfalls it’ll probably never work. There’s a reason why emulators have never done that well, and I just mentioned them!

But hey, they could always prove me wrong. I dare them.
