Alongside Orbital, GPCS4 is another Playstation 4 emulator that is currently under development for the PC. And while both of them are at a really early stage, GPCS4 can finally boot a commercial game. However, and before getting too excited, this emulator is far from being able to run any game at acceptable framerates.
According to its creator, GPCS4 can finally render a 2D image demo. Moreover, GPCS4 can boot the twin-stick shooter for Playstation 4, We Are Doomed. Not only that, but the emulator can… wait for it… actually run the game.
Now while We Are Doomed is not a demanding game, it’s incredible that GPCS4 can even run it. However, do note that We Are Doomed is not playable. While the emulator can go in-game, it’s not capable of fully running this game.
It’s also worth noting that GPCS4 can also boot the Playstation 4 version of NieR. However, I want to make it crystal clear that you won’t be able to enjoy PS4 games on the PC anytime soon. I mean, take a look at the PS3 emulator, RPCS3, and how long it took it to run some of its triple-A exclusives.
