    Pretty much what the title says. Also, if the mwthod involves mad coding, I doubt it'll serve much.

    Well, it's a Ps3. If there's no emulator, could you at least tell me the method?

    Well the first thing is that you have to make sure to rewrite the base code in a way that will allow whatever os (s) will be using it and then it depends on what engine it runs off of and how advanced the game itself is...

    Okay, I'll probably just kill the game while trying.

    Any conversion would probably have more than its share of bugs, unless you were emulating the hardware it was originally made for.
