Report misleading

Time and again there is always a time to look back on certain video games from a past era. Though the harsh reality behind it all is that not everybody is capable of paying a premium price just to play those past generation games - in this case, the classic PS3. Gone now is the inconvenience of searching certain video game titles and paying a considerable amount of money for them. With this console emulator, appropriately called "RPCS3," having a physical PS3 console is no longer necessary.

One of the main features that make RPCS3 convenient is the sheer fact that it is a form of freeware type of download. 

Another main feature of the RPCS3 is the fact that it's free. No purchase necessary. The developers of this emulator somehow managed to tinker with the inner workings of the PS3 and transfer it in such a way that you can now play PS3 games WITHOUT the necessary console.

Another main feature of the RPCS3 is that it can serve as an archive of video gamers for fellow gamers. There are some individuals out there who may have missed out on the previous generation console's offerings. RPCS3 can simply provide this experience to those who have missed the train the first time.

Lastly is that another feature of the RPCS3 is that despite it still being new, the developers are hard to work on maintaining and improving this product through fixes, and progress reports. The quality and reliability of RPCS3 will only improve from here on end. 

With its ever-improving design and updates from the developers, RPCS3 is definitely a really good way to play video games of past generations. That and since it's free, who's complaining?

Users shouldn't change the resolution setting for 99% of games, as it can break things and cause a performance loss. The tool-tip says to leave it on 1280x720 for a reason. If you want to increase resolution use Resolution Scaling instead. Resolution Scale Threshold should be left at the default setting of 16x16 for most games as well, it's only needed to fix issues with Resolution Scaling in a couple games e.g Drakengard 3 or Asura's Wrath which require a value of around 512x512 to fix a small visual bug when using resolution scaling.
