RPCS3 founder gives new update on PlayStation 4 emulator RPCS4

DH, the founder of the popular PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3, has given an update on his new project today via the official RPCS3 Twitter account. The Tweet shows a small progress update on RPCS4, a PlayStation 4 emulator. According to the Tweet, DH has not worked on RPCS3 since 2016 and his new team has no overlap with the RPCS3 team, meaning it shouldn't halt development on that emulator. RPCS4 is still early enough in development that it doesn't have a website yet, and in another Tweet, the RPCS3 devs denounce the RPCS4.com website as "fake," and tell users "do not fall for scams." RPCS4 should also not be confused with PCSX4, another well-known fake PlayStation 4 emulator.

This announcement comes only a week following the revival of Spine, another PlayStation 4 emulator on Linux that is showing serious promise. While RPCS3 is by far the most popular PlayStation 3 emulator, the early arrival of Spine onto the scene may give RPCS4 a bit more competition.

What a pissing contest. They barely showed anything or have said anything for years and now all of a sudden they want to show something that’s barely a demo and don’t even do a minimum and acknowledge the fake malware website that gets listed on Google when you search for this new name

There is no chance a emulated PS4 game will run well on Switch. It would be a struggle to get it to run normally, never mind with the overhead that comes with emulation. Even if it was ported, you would get a poor framerate. Maybe something like 10 FPS at best?

The Switch is simply not powerful enough.
Gee. Thanks for clearing that up.

    Will they use the same Shindou-translated ROM, or the original English ROM?

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing
