The release comes in the form of a Homebrew PKG (CEX & REX ) and also in the form of a background running Plugin (sprx) for Cobra/Mamba setup's.. This release as mention is experimental as it contains "multithreading support" which should increase performance on your system but due to this change there could be some stability issues in the early adoption of this new feature, Report any issues and also improvements your experiencing using this release from the dev. The developer has already made two quick update adding better stability in R2 /. R3. So with time and the communities help of feedback, we should keep seeing this improve with more updates to become a stable feature with of course better performance thanks to multithreading support.​

The functionality of Ps3Xploit (v3.0) HAN continues to evolve as more and more features are developed. In recent days we have seen the ability to change the Coldboot (boot-logo) and also the XMB Wave in the backgorund but now the Ps3Xploit team has taken it a step farther with the release of even more tools to customize your XMB. With three new tools Image Font Replacer , XML Replacer & RCO Resource Replacer some of the tools are more geared to advance user's/developer's with an understanding of XML & RCO modding on the PS3 XMB. All 3 tools can be used on both 4.82 OFW & CFW and HAN does not need to be activated, additional info about XMB Modding can be learned in our forums and also at ps3devwiki

When a new console generation get's released, there is always the question sooner or later: "Can I emulate it on my PC?"
While one side tries to emulate older Classic Titles on newer consoles - like running PS2 Game Titles on the PS4 - then there are also other people who tries to run newer Game Titles on the PC. And since we speak already about the PS4, maybe we should have a look what those other people are trying to achieve about PS4 Emulation on PC.

Well-known developer AlexAltea is one of those other people mentioned who tries exactly right that with his - as he calls it - "Virtualization-based PlayStation 4 Emulator", named Orbital.​
