I wonder if it is actually supporting ps4 in the update its added support on opengl

I should not have read that...
Now I lost braincells I'll never get back :/

It sure is supporting OpenGL part of the PS4.

But seriously, OpenGL is a 'middlebit' between your GPU and application, whenever you want to draw something on your screen(3D for the sake of purpose) either OpenGL(Pretty much any platform) or DirectX(Native Windows, third party, various systems) will be the one to be asked how much and which way.

So yeah, it will handle the draw calls, but it won't be able to even reach this phase as hardware/software architecture is entirely different.

Just a matter of time homebrew will be on PS4. I can see this being one of the apps.

They could but the won't. Sony would rather sell you games you already own again.
PurpHerbison  +   158d ago
To be fair, pretty much everyone sells you games you already own. Hardly any innovation in this age of gaming.
Hicken  +   158d ago
I hate how Sony forces you to buy the games again. The oil from the gun barrel they put against my head really irritates my skin.
XtraTrstrL  +   159d ago
seems it's a good chance this is being released now because the ps1/ps2 emulation news that came out recently. Maybe Sony is working with them, who knows.
brich233  +   159d ago
or just stealing their work, and getting it to work on thier console lol. Since it already has similar PC architecture im sure it cant be to hard to port it over.
peowpeow  +   159d ago
PS2 has similar architecture?

Downloaded and now playing Kingdom Hearts in 1080p 60 FPS. This will be glorious!
Snookies12  +   159d ago
Kingdom Hearts 2 Final Mix looks amazing in 1080p at 60FPS. Play that quite a lot on my PC. Good stuff, good stuff indeed.

Oh my god I'm going to get right onto this

Big thanks to guys who developed PS1 and PS2 emulators. Now I am able to play my favourite classics at any framerate/resolution and they all look like HD remakes. Great job!
Chrono  +   159d ago
Is this the same as the recent SVN releases?
lesrima88  +   159d ago
glorious pc master race, time to play some timeplsitters!

I love PC gaming. Always so many options.
Snookies12  +   159d ago
Itachi knows best... Always... Lol, seriously though, I agree. I love being a PC gamer.
KakashiHotake  +   159d ago
Downloading Devil May Cry 3 as we speak lol You can't even do that on console even if you brought the game on PS2 with your own money.

After the terrible PC port of DMC 3, emulation is pretty much the best bet for that game.
optimus  +   159d ago
My pc is over 9 yrs old with no upgrades, i wonder if this emulator will run with no problems...or maybe it'll run on my laptop which is only about 4 yrs old.
gamernova  +   159d ago
And emulation will get even easier as consoles are using similar architecture to the PC. Love being part of the master race :)
Deep-throat  +   159d ago
Keep dreaming.
Taislin  +   159d ago
When you say master race, you´re talking about the human race right? I don´t see what other race you could be talking about. If so, yeah, it´s good to be a part of the master race
PurpHerbison  +   158d ago
He is Reptilian, not Human.
TheOrder1886  +   159d ago
Dream more, Look at the original Xbox and the Xbox 360

Even the 3DS and Wii U are not hacked LOL
Iltapalanyymi  +   159d ago
Inb4 some idiot comes here and writes a comment about how emulators are piracy.

Great to hear, however that the emulator got even better. definitely gonna download this.

Looks like I've found the excuse I didn't even need to play Silent Hill 2 again. Yea!
pennywhyz  +   159d ago
PC's are Godlike.
Basjohn  +   159d ago
Just remember, it's now bundled with malware.
Xof  +   158d ago
Are the Ace Combat games playable yet?

I have a big box of PS2 games, and no machines to play 'em on.
xavvyboy  +   158d ago
When you install it, choose custom install to avoid the AVG bloatware...
aLiEnViSiToR  +   158d ago
Cant wait to try Final Fantasy X, God of War and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence on PC with this update :D
