The RPCS3 team has released a new video, highlighting some major performance improvements in three Naughty Dog games. These three ND games are: The Last of Us, Uncharted 2 and… wait for it… Uncharted 3.
RPCS3 is the best Playstation 3 emulator that is currently available for the PC. Its team has been constantly improving overall performance and game compatibility, and we may soon be able to play these three games on the PC.
Now do note that these major performance improvements come from new patches/hacks. Players will have to apply these patches in order to get the following performance boosts. Moreover, these patches disable some graphical effects, so that’s something that may disappoint some of you. And while these games can run with higher framerates than those of PS3, they are not fully playable. According to the RPCS3 team, there are still some unavoidable crashes.
Nevertheless, it’s good witnessing these games running with a higher framerate in RPCS3. Will we be able to fully enjoy them by the end of 2020? Well, we hope so, though nothing is certain at this point.
Last but not least, Aphelion Gaming has shared a video showing the settings that you’ll need to use in order to play The Last of Us on PC.
