10 year later 2030 - ps4 emulator games = ingame (half playable. no start to finish)
no need when all those ps4 games will be in some way playable on pc, and streaming will have improved tremendously in a decade.
And all those streamed games are running on rented Ps4 hardware.
as long as they play and beat it babadook that's irrelevant.
How can you be so sure streaming will have improved tremendously in a decade? I don't notice much difference from 2010 to now.🤔
Yes I agree...but this must be done for game preservation.
"How can you be so sure streaming will have improved tremendously in a decade? I don't notice much difference from 2010 to now" Really now? Google Stadia and xCloud didn't even exist in 2010, and they're both up and running full retail AAA games today at high quality. You really haven't noticed 'much difference' between then and now?
No I haven't.
I believe it will be faster than that though. Tech advances really quick nowadays, and pretty soon we might have consumer CPUs/GPUs that have enough grunt to emulate this system.
I feel like console emulators are now just a project people can flex their coding muscles on rather than being a legit way to preserve or emulate said console. By the time ps3 and ps4 is 100% there will be a better, cheaper solution in place.
What's a better, cheaper solution than downloading freeware and ripping your own games?
Not having to buy an i7 and a high end card to play a handful of games with poor performance. Its only a matter of time before official emulation happens.
"Official" Emulation? Which would require, what... buying new hardware anyway? On top of that, the PS4 is an x86 machine with very few truly "custom" parts, emulating it likely won't require much by way of "brute force" unlike the specialized consoles of old.
Ill play it eventually when it runs fine. And the PS5 will run ps4 games. But I wont ever sell my PS4 because my mom bought it for me as a bday present.
and we still can't get a decent original Xbox emulator.
Its like the emulation scene doesn’t care about Xbox or something.
I believe that may be correct
Well at least all future Xbox exclusives will also release on PC... Actually it emulators only exist because of console exclusives...
