  • PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 is coming along quickly with their August progress report up

With that in mind, they also did a lot of testing of games that previously only went in-game to see how many are now properly playable. Thanks to all the testing, the Playable category has jumped up to 1,426 titles!
