hello, my name is josh. im 15, and know barely anything about coding. i want to try and take the software off my ps3 and use it as an extention for my pc. this way i will hopefully be able to play games flawlessly on my pc. to do this i need to understand what coding ps3 hardware accepts and what coding my pc uses. im considering the possibility of needing to make a program to flip the code going out and coming in to make it compatible. any ideas?:confused:

This isn't a good project to do if you are interested in getting into programming. The PlayStation 3 uses a completely different processor architecture than a PC which means the game code can't be natively executed.
Theoretically you could build an emulator to run the software but that would be a huge amount of work even for a seasoned professional developer. Not to mention after what happened to GeoHot if Sony caught wind of what you are doing they would bring the hammer down on you.
If you are interested in emulators I would suggest starting with a much older and simpler console like the NES.

:/ dang... im just thinking what if you made a program that turns your outputs into a flipcode for the ps3s inputs? ive got a little experience with gaming codes but none with hardware/software etc. :P
