With PS4 architecture being pretty close to a regular PC it is only a matter of time that all the emulators for playing MAME, SNES roms, N64 or even PS1 and PS3 games will be ported to Playstation 4. With Sony ignoring the calls for the inclusion of backward compatibility with al least the PS3 games it is about time we took things in our own hands and modded the PS4s to run emulated rom versions of all the previous generation of video game consoles. Of all the current gen consoles PS4 is surely the one taht can pull this of.
And running a full blown verison of PS4 Linux would be a giant first step in accomplishing full 100% backward compatibility!

Emulators are measured by the games that they support. If you want to take a look at what games you can play using this emulator, just visit its official website. There, you can find a list of compatible games. You will know more about each game’s status and the list is likely color coded to make it easier for anyone to read the list. Here are the meanings of the colors that you can see in the list:
- Green. It can be played.
- Blue. It can still be played but it has issues with crashes and odd bugs.
- Orange. It can show you logos but you can’t play the game.
- Yellow. It can help you find the game’s menus but not play the game.
- Red. It does not play at all.
However, there is a disclaimer about how the compatibility list does not contain the latest information about the games and their condition. It’s recommended to try the games yourself without having to depend much on the last. It’s your own trial that will show you which game works and which doesn’t.
