For a long time, PC gamers relied on the Playstation 3 emulator, RPCS3, in order to play (or should I say test) Red Dead Redemption. However, things have changed as the Xbox 360 emulator, Xenia, is also able to boot and run Rockstar’s old-gen game.
John GodGames Emus has shared a video, showing the game running with 30fps on an Intel Core i7 8700K @ 5.0 Ghz with 32GB of DDR4 3600MHz RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming 8GB GPU and Windows 10 64bit.
From the looks of it, Xenia can actually run the game better than RPCS3. However, the Xbox 360 emulator currently suffers from a lot of graphical glitches. The foliage culling for example is totally messed up, however it’s really cool witnessing the emulator running the game.
My guess is that by the end of 2019, PC gamers will be able to play Red Dead Redemption on both the Xenia and the RPCS3 emulators. Of course this is mere speculation but from what we’ve seen so far, this could be possible.
Enjoy the video and stay tuned for more!
