nes games on ps4
This will be just like ps3 hack a few common emulators that everything else can already run but nothing that actually uses the power of the PS4.. don't hold your breathe for PS2/Gamecube emulator.
Not worth it.
Sounds like you don't understand the architectural differences between the systems. The PS3 used the Cell processor which was based on PPC arch and had 7 synergistic processing units. They also used the Reality Synthesizer (RSX) chip which had terrible driver support.
The PS4 on the other hand is based on x86 architecture running a modified version of FreeBSD. It also appears that the graphics card will be much easier to use in homebrew.
If you would like to know more about the inner workings of the PS3's architecture you are welcome to read the paper I wrote back in grad school: http://sylerclayton.com/blog/Playstation-3-System-Security
Time to buy?
If No Man's Sky turns out to be PSVR exclusive and you can somehow open it up to the Vive you'd be my favorite person of all time. I'd build a statue.
Android box can do exactly the same in fact i have a mad catz mojo hooked up to a 1tb portable hard drive, mouse, keyboard.. yeah you get the point.
Didn't know there was a GameCube emu for android... ;D
There is! https://dolphin-emu.org/download/
There is one for Android but it's in its early stages and a few games run, the mad catz i have won't run it too well but the shield tv will.
So would it be a good idea to get a PS4 now? or is this like the Wii U that it was "hacked" on the first couple of weeks but nothing useful until 3-4 years later?
For the record you reinstall the updates when you replace the hard drive so go find a download of 1.76 and have fun
Idk if it's even worth it, it's only compatible with an archaic firmware, meaning it'll be hard tp find one now, and near impossible when this thing actually becomes useful to the end user.
Is this just for homebrew or has somebody got backups working on it?
It's not for anything for end users in its current state. The most anyone has shown achieved with a PS4 kernel exploit so far is booting Linux (with fail0verflow's patches), but this leak is missing some crucial parts that'd be needed to do even that.
In theory it could be used to compromise the retail OS and get kernel access to that, but all that's been shown thus far is what f0f has done (booting linux) which is amazing! I applaud their amazing work <3
