Now that PS3 emulators are numerous and quite optimized, finding a good PS4 emulator is much more complicated. And that’s not even talking about the PS5. Nevertheless, the developer Inorinus has launched to dabble a little in this project. Indeed, he has just launched Kity, the very first PS4/PS5 emulator. Please note, that the software is at a very early stage of development.
Nowadays it is possible to find several stable and up-to-date PS3 emulators such as RPCS3 for example. Handy for (re)playing Sony console classics such as God of War 3, The Last of Us, or Uncharted. Well, another viable solution is to subscribe to the Playstation Plus Premium to take advantage of the catalog of PS3 games. Currently, the number of titles available is not huge, but there are still some cult games such as Siphon Filter for example.
Anyway, we’ll have to wait until June 22, 2022, to get an idea of the new PS Plus. As for the emulation of PS4 games, the projects are still in their infancy and there is no stable software at the time of writing these lines. And that’s not even talking about the PS5. However, the developer InoriRus has decided to get to work on this ambitious project to create an emulator for both consoles.
Kity, the first PS4/PS5 emulator, debuts
Named Kity, it is already available for download on GitHub Be warned though, the software is still in early development, and don’t expect Demon’s Souls of Redemption & Clank: Rift Apart to run on your PC at 4K 60 FPS with Ray Tracing enabled.
Don’t count on playing the latest PS4 games either. For now, the performance isn’t quite there, averaging 15-20 FPS on the PS4 game Worms WMD as we can see from the video shared by InoriRus. In addition, the developer states that Kity does not support audio input/output, MP4 video format, network playback, and multi-users. And for now, it cannot launch commercial PS5 games. As a reminder, this is the third PS4 emulator in development, alongside Spine and GPCS4.
