I managed to get a PS2 game converted which played OK, but not a PS3 game.

Or was it a PSP game? Can't remember. I can't remember which site I downloaded it from (illegally). All I remember was there was a lot of converting to and from (formats) and a lot of downloads (from different sites) before it worked.

Are you sure? Afaik we can only play playstation converted game only with psxperia, and we play with ps pocket app.
Till now we only have 1 free Playstation Suite title, and it was a PSP games, i mean, it was a Loco Roco Midnight Carnival.

I really tired waiting Sony to boost Playstation Suite services. Many titles already listed, but only few has launched, no Greenland, no demo

Of course you can try the App "Kainy" its a Remote Control - So you can play all games wich you have installed on your Computer on your Phone too.

What you need:

3G/4G Internet Connection
PC wich is turned on

Kainy installed on your PC

Todays i3, i5 and i7 processors are over 4 times more powerful than an PS3's cell processor 8 SPE's (These are not x86 CPU cores), And current gen ATI and Nvidia GPU's are like 10 times more powerful.
An emulation software can only use the CPU for all graphic processing. So the Cell CPU is clocked at 3.2Ghz then an Intel or AMD CPU needs to be clocked at 6.4Ghz to give playable frames.

sorry, but playing ps3 games on xperia play is totally impossible, use the "Onlive" app to get some beautifull games in streaming

Hey guys why it can't be possible? With CFW on PS3 it's possible to play all PS3 games with PS Vita - streaming to the console. With Officially OS have few PS3 games official support to "remote play" gaming... I think when a good developer will look at this.. it can be real on xperia/android phones too

Download speed doesn't matter too much for remote gaming, the issue is latency and binding keyboard and mouse control to a gamepad, which doesn't work too well for games not designed for consoles. This is the issue with Onlive compounded by the fact I have wimax home internet so the latency sucks compared to landline internet.
