Spine, a new PS4 emulator has arrived in town, and it allows us to play hundreds of titles on Linux

Spine PS4 Emulator

A while ago I gave to try a PS3 emulator on my laptop. And well, I'll just say that it didn't work as well as PPSSPP because my hardware wasn't the best (I can't remember which laptop I used). For users who have a more powerful computer and use Linux, it has been introduced a few days ago spine, a PS4 emulator that had been in secret development for about two years.

Just like read At Tom's Hardware, right now Spine is taking its first steps, or rather, the first demo has just been released, available in this link, where there is also information on how to install it. If you are thinking that any PS4 game can be run, I am sorry to tell you that it is not like that, that the current list is somewhat short, but it will expand over time.

Spine already allows us to play PS4 titles on Linux, but not all

What we can play in Spine right now are 2D games now available for PCSo, for now, you have to forget about playing God of War, for example. And 2D games don't work perfectly either, as you can see from the orange Sonic who, honestly, I had originally thought was Knuckles.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Spine is still it does not have a graphical interface. And the worst thing is that you have to look for the firmware to make it work, the same as the games (Roms), but this is the case in almost any emulator in the world.

In my opinion, considering the colors and the lack of graphical interface, I think they should have waited a few more months to introduce Spine, but the news has already taken place and no one will take away the position of the first PS4 emulator for Linux anymore. . Now it needs to be polished a bit and, on the part of those who want to use it, have a team with a power above the average.

    Horrible. It looks like a retro emulator. Not a new console emulator.
