So far, there are no PS Vita games, and unlike PS2, PS1, and PSP games, all of which run via emulation, PS3 games are only streamed. This is a problem as it means the only way to play PS3 games on modern PlayStation consoles is with latency. And if you have a bad Internet connection, forget about playing them. Why are PS3 games only streaming? Well, Sony can’t quite figure out PS3 emulation, mainly because emulating the PS3 is so challenging due to not only the unique architecture of the console, but also all the ways that developers found unique ways around this architecture that they would have to be taken into account. consideration. All that said, a new job listing seemingly confirms that it’s an issue Sony is actively working on fixing.
