EmuPs3 cannot emulate PS3 on Android, it is a scam

The Mountain View company is constantly introducing new measures to make the Google Play Store be a safe place. But the filters that applications pass before being publicly available are still not enough, because from time to time they sneak scams like the one at hand. And they can only be a waste of time for users, but in other cases they can also be a risk for your privacy or for the normal operation of the device because they contain malware.

EmuPs3 is not a PS3 emulator for Android but a scam

Available in the Google Play Store for free, and under early access, the application EmuPs3 promises us to have the ability to emulate PS3 video games on our Android mobile devices. Somewhat complicated, actually, because RPCS3 does do it on PC, but with serious difficulties –for some videogames-. And obviously, the features of an Android device, at the hardware level, are much more limited. Be that as it may, this is something that many users do not know or even stop to think about, which is why this app has already accumulated more than 100,000 downloads in the Google Play Store.

Between the permits requesting this application is the full access to the device’s network connections. Fortunately you do not have access to our photographs, for example, or other sensitive and private files. What it does have is a ‘tutorial’ that it should serve to emulate videogames and that, in reality, it is nothing more than an advertising loop from link to link, and with pop-up windows that can download malware on our device.

You have to be careful with these types of applications and, when they are detected, report it in the Google Play Store to be removed as soon as possible. Whenever it is available, you have to review the rating of the application and the ratings of other users to see if it is an application that delivers what it promises or, as in this case, it is nothing more than a scam that has managed to bypass the filters of Google for Play Store apps.
