Hey Guys,

I'm going to be replacing the PC in my Arcade cabinet with a Playstation 3 (with RGB SCART Cable) now that its been cracked.

PS3's are about $350 now, and theres a tonne of emulators for it now that that all the keys have been released. Plus it can play all the PS3 games like KOF12/13, SF4/SSF4, Blaz Blues, SSF2THDR and Mvc2HD etc.

If anyone wants me to write a guide and host all the files in the *you know where* let me know here!

EDIT: I didn't mention you can use any standard HDD in a PS3 (Up to 2TB). Internally up to 750gb (9.5mm High drive), but you can run a sata cable out the side and run a standard desktop drive! :P

Thats awesome news. Time to do some research!

Playstations and Xboxes have been used in Commercial arcades for years, but you needed special commercial discs to use.
