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.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
