French 'homebrew' PS3 developer Bobby6killer has released an updated version of his port of Another World for the Jailbreakable PS3 consoles!
Another World (Out of This World) for PS3
This project is based on the reverse engine made by Gregory Montoir, and reimplements the game Another World to be played on PS3.

It is a reimplementation of the game Another World in PS3, with some additional features from the original game:

WOW, this is a gamers game right here. This bring back memories. I spent countless hrs on this game. Swinging the cage back and forth, trying to figure out what to do next and then perfecting that, OMG. I kept missing the gun you had to pick up, holy crap, good times man. This was a scary experience, one of the first games that I ever played that REALLY sucked you in to the game play. I think it's Out Of This World for SNES and I think it might be in the SEGA collection also, of course I was one of the fortunate ones that actually got to play this when it first came out YEARS ago. MAJOR PROPS for working on this game, MAJOR PROPS.
This game is not for the faint at heart, if your a quitter, don't bother. If you want a challenge, you MUST try this game.
It's kinda of a puzzle, adventure, trial and error, side-scroll, theatrical, art driven game.
