    I'm just wondering. We already have CEMU for the Wii U, and the PS4 is based off the x86 instruction set. What hurdles do you think need to be achieved to play the exclusives on PC?

    It's possible, but the PS4 hasn't really been reversed engineered enough yet, or even really known about the under the hood stuff, to make an emulator.

    It is now using remote play. No emulators as of now.

    X86 architecture is one thing, but System Calls to the PS4's OS and the graphics systems are what needs to be emulated. I could imagine that if the OS itself could be decrypted, with some tweaking it may run on PCs? Still would require a lot of Video Calls tranlations.

    Yes. But only if they're non-exclusive, multi-platform games.
