You can now play Killzone 3 on PC with M&K support thanks to RPCS3 and KAMI

As Sony has no plans to release Killzone 3 on PC, the community has thought about doing the job themselves.



A user on Youtube, Yahfz, shared a video that gives us a glimpse at what such a PC version could look like.
Yahfz used RPCS3 in order to run the game with 60fps, and used KAMI to then inject support for mouse and keyboard:



The end result appears to be amazing. Now as you will see, the game still displays the PS3 icons.
KAMI injects mouse movements into emulated games, and can be used in other PS3 games too. According to reports, KAMI also works well with Resistance: Fall of Man.

You can download KAMI from here. You can also download the latest version of the Playstation 3 emulator, RPCS3, from here.

Hopefully the RPCS3 patreon sees a large increase as this is going to be the only way to play this games down the line at acceptable standards. I encourage everyone to try the emulator. Its getting updates on a daily basis and improving at a steady rate.
Even with an old I5 you will be able to play 2D games and titles like Demon's Souls and more. There is stutter when shaders are compiled but its only on the first run of the game.

I think Killzone is a series with great potential that atrophied as a Playstation exclusive. One people will later discover with PS3 emulation.

This is amazing progress but I really wish they'd actually recorded the footage of UC4 and KZ3 at 60fps. KZ3 at least appears to be locked to 60 but the actual source recording is 30 (verify this if you can't tell by eye by using stepping through the footage frame by frame, every 2nd frame is a duplicate) and then its uploaded to youtube as a 60fps encode, why?

I was excited to see UC3 at 4K60 :(

But the original Killzone 3 already supported Move controls and the Sharpshooter which is far superior to the so called 'mouse and keyboard' noobs use these days.

Nice. PS3 had the most exclusives that I never finished. PC might entice me.

It looks great even today.

I cannot play these games with the shitty field of view and unresponsiveness. But if they mod this, it would probably be splendid.

Why would you though? Killzone 3 was garbage. Actually now that I think about it, all the killzone games were garbage.

Actually the entire ps3 exclusive lineup wasn't great and has aged worse. I just like finishing old games I started sometimes

That moment when you spend $200+ to play a gay video on the heatsink.
Hey on the other hand, I paid NeoGAF Gold to get a gay guy a custom tag on here. (This was before knowing he was gay) It was much cheaper than $200 bucks, and his Instagram is full of that kinda stuff if you're into it. Of course I'm not, and I'm being forever stalked by this weirdo now...

I saw someone mention KZ3 MP in a positive way in here, had to go bleach my eyes and brain.

Would be nice if they remastered/remade and ported the Killzone series to PC. Not much games this year and prolly next so might as well give us some console stuff :)

Forgive me as I’ve a tad too much wine, but couldn’t you do this anyway with PS Now for PC?

if a remaster of JUST the MP for KZ 2 is released it would be > than all the other overhyped MP games in coming.
