RPCN working for select PS3 games


“Over the past year, developer GalCiv has been working on a private PSN server replacement called RPCN,” the team behind the emulator say of the advance. “This is a free and open source private server that can act as PSN, written in Rust.”

The good news is it can play Demon’s Souls and Bomberman Ultra! The bad news is those are the only two games working properly at the moment, because the online play functionality relies on a game having “multiplayer and co-op modes in games that don’t require a custom server in addition to PSN, or already have one”.

It’s hoped that as this new feature is tested further, more and more games will be made available for online play.

That's pretty cool, even if people are eventually going to need to write servers for the specific game, the PSN requirement is usually the roadblock.

That's sort of the problem with some of the ps2 games if they didn't have P2P since that would require doing all that net code as well as whatever middle ware that was used.

Demons Souls was a really fun game, glad to see it is playable online still.
