This was only a problem when you were running Linux / using "OtherOS". Sony crippled it on purpose. But that came back and bit them .

"GameOS" is a different beast entirely, you have access to everything. But you need 3.41/.55 or a custom firmware to be able to access it. We even managed to get "Peek & Poke" working and enabled the ps3 to be able to use dynamic recompilers (or JIT) but no-one made any software/emulators that made use of it.

Have a look at the PS3 version of retroarch on youtube etc, It shows off what the PS3 can do.
It's a very capable multi-emu that actually started life on PS3 and is still being developed today

(Although I'm no programmer, I was quite involved in the PS3 scene )
