    So,I'm gonna get a better computer soon and I'd love to play some games for the ps3 or wiiU like Kingdom Hearts 2.5 or New Super Mario Bros U but the problem is that I can't afford any of them in the time being.
    I searched for Wii U emulators and I found both trolls and probably working ones (my computer right now is REALLY bad,so I can't even open the emulator at some point to see if they're even working).So my main question is if there is any ''lite'' version of Ps3 Emulator (if there is one) and a ''lite'' version of Wii U emulator ('lite'' means that the emulator won't need a supercomputer to run games)


    Sorry if this isn't the place to ask questions/the right place to ask this question
    And sorry for bad english too

    There are Wii U and PS3 emulators, but they suck.

    If by run games you mean run them even near as good as in the console, NO to all of that.

    Cemu is getting pretty close, it just needs more compatibility.

    I don't think there such thing as a "lite" version of any emulator.
    How would a "lite" one work anyway?

    Even to Ps3 ? It's just weird since it's been on since like 3-4 years ,but I guess time isn't something I can depend on since Wii U got it's emulator recently and there've been good reviews on it

    It's still not there yet.
    Even Dolphin sometimes is far from good enough emulation for Wii.
    TBH if someone wanted to play PS3 games particularly, I would tell him to get an old used PS3 that would go for coins, and buy used games around that also go for coins.

    Not for PS3 specially.
    Wii U emulation is way more advanced right now.
    Think of the PS3 as the Saturn of modern emulation. It is hard to emulate.

    ''lite'' means that it won't need really expensive computer ''materials''.

    Very true. Same thing with the original Xbox as well.
    If you really want to emulate those systems all i can say is donate your time/money to the emulator projects to help progress but there is nothing we can really do right now.

    Giving money is hard,since I can't raise much easily.Also,say, I want 5 games,eacch game is sold about 40EUR brand new and 30EUR,the console used can't get lower than 160EUR.These games get more expensive with console+game bundles (if they exist) but most of them don't exist

    Its true that Sega Emulator is harder to emulate however it is called SSF and it emulate MOST Sega Saturn games 100 percent just fine. A genius developer does that. Anyway... For PS3 emulator, some games are playable if you take a look at guy does that at youtube is John GodGames. He tested those games for RPCS3 PS3 Emulator but a low compatibility for now. It will get there.

    Yeah, I know... including Citra emu. I noticed some of games from Citra emu is speed up by him and not Citra itself. He gotta be careful that people who didn't read it might think Citra increase the speed which is not true. :huh::unsure:

    I think it's much more hassle to find a good emulator then buying the console itself, honestly. The PS3 should be rather cheap by now? Or just wait until you got enough money?

    Sorry I can't be of more help.

    Neh... Look here, only 90€... And it even comes with 9 games, some of which are not shitty.

    You can find prices around that all the time here.

    PS: And regarding games, just going to gamestop here and looking at the used games bin, you can find great games for around ~10€. PS3 games are cheap nowadays.
