Hi guys,

I hope you are all well.

I have read that the RPCS3 emulator is very demanding (consumes a lot of CPU) because the PS3 is a console with a very complex architecture. I think that for $30 that a PS3 costs there is no need for emulation. And $2000 PC neither. Is barely conceived.

I would appreciate any clarification.

Thanks in advance.

See if that PS3 costs $30 several years and decades from now.
Regarding $2000 PC, you only spent $2000 because you wanted to. You can spec a PC that meets recommended requirements for less than 1K.

We're preserving the PS3 while also adding many enhancements over the physical console. Current prices for things are irrelevant, really.

You don't buy a computer just for ps3 emulation. You pay for it's multi-tasking, multi-platform gaming and multi-media capability.
Which should be more than good enough.
