That is pretty cool. I'll try it out eventually.

So Retroarch still isn't available to download onto your steam library just yet, but if you open up the following link in your browser, you can request playtest access now. Unsure if you can do it from within Steam or the mobile apps.

I suppose it's about that time for early PS4 emulation, since it's all but discontinued in Japan and the base PS4 hardware is 8 years old. But my old-man mushy brain still sees this as an impossible programming feat. It makes me wonder if PC hardware specs have kept the standard pace, or if the PS4 has optimizations that make it easier to emulate.
