Naturally its still very much a question mark if he/they have got the 3D acceleration part figured out or if the emulation is still restricted to 2D only.
This, and most emulators of today, PCSX2 and Dolphin use between 2-3 cores whilst our machines are starting to have 4-8 cores but getting them to run on all of those cores are bound to be ridiculously complex, I think we'd need to see pretty big gains on the single thread.

I dont think alot of games reach the 25GB barrier judging from PSN download file sizes, GTA 5 is apparently 17-18GB, the 360 has two discs. LBP2 last time I checked was hovering around 9GB supposedly too. Unless they are larger once installed or on disc.
For them to be bigger than a 360 equivalent multi plat game wouldn't alot of the content on the disc be uncompressed or something or do the discs get filled to their full capacity? Judging from my ripped PS2 games I think almost all of them, if not all of them at 4.7GB, DVD-5's full capacity.
I think the 360 games are DVD-9 which is 8.5GB so you're probably right about the file sizes.
About the OP, this is an amazing start, I wonder why were starting to see decent 360 and PS3 emu production after the next gens have released? Still going to be amazing, I would love to play a couple PS3 games at 1080p.
I'm going to call out what I think will be the most demanding titles to emulate for that platform, Uncharted titles, Killzone titles and the Last of Us alongside the Infamous series, there might be more though but these are mostly 1st partys.
The SPEs are probably like hell to emulate.
I'd expect the 360 emulator to take off faster and possibly perform better in multi-plats.Edited by TopicClocker - 3/26/14 at 1:54pm
