A couple of days ago, we posted here about a PS1 emulator made exclusive to PSGroove.com, well a user by the name of halsafar on the same site has released a VBA Emulator for PS3, here is a quote from the source:
I am pleased to finally release my teams port of VBA (Visual Boy Advance) to the public. It is a clean port of the most recent VBA-M emulator, that is fully functional, equal to our teams SNES9X-PS3 and FCEU-PS3 releases.
We spent some time optimizing it. The VBA-M source is not conducive to being run on the PPU. After applying many small optimizations we have obtained 60fps in all the important games.
Enjoy GB and GBA with shaders!
Vba 0.99 (3.41 only, 1.92 coming soon)
