    just thought it would be possible since pc hardware are always better.

    no

    well, anything is possible... but it takes much more to emulate a gaming console... Even tho they are technically less powerful, they are designed for a specific purpose and use their power better for that purpose.

    PS1 emulators came out 3-4 years after the PS1 was released.
    PS2 emulators are still currently being worked on. The early releases are still buggy.
    It may take a while for the PS3,... but I did hear from the homebrew community that there are some guys already starting to work on it.

    I've always wondered how the console emulators function...they are quite cool to say the least.

    arcade emulation is even worse, CPS3 (engine used by capcom in games like street fighter 3) was cracked last july after 7 years.

    i think it has to do with the massive amount of bits that a high end system can process, compared to the 64 bits that a high end computer can handle...plus copyright restrictions, encryption, and just not knowing how to reverse engineer a system
