Native Emulation

PS4 is based on x86_64 architecture so PCSX4 runs natively on Windows systems by taking advantage of OGRE and Vulcan API. PCSX4 renders games smoothly without compromising the visual quality. macOS is also supported with Metal (API), check FAQ,s for more info.


Unlocked FPS

You can now play PS4 games on PC & MAC at variable frame rates with buttery smooth experience as most of the titles can now run at 60 FPS and beyond. If you have a dedicated GPU that has Vulkan support then you can expect a decent performance.


Multiple Input Devices

PCSX4 supports multiple input gaming devices. You can even use a mouse input for first-person-shooter games. PS4 & XBOX-ONE controller has plug and play support on PCSX4.
