Play Station 5 (PS5) Emulator for desktop
This is an open-source experimental PS5 Emulator project written in C++ for Windows and macOS (and Android & iOS). The first and the only emulator which allows you to play PS5 games on both PC & Mac. It uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX 12 as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the PS5 exclusives on high-end machines with some glitches as it is still in beta. There will be frequent releases which you can grab from the download section.
PS5 is based on x86_64 architecture so it runs natively on Windows systems by taking advantage of OGRE, Vulcan API and Orbital hardware-assisted virtualization. The emulator renders games smoothly without compromising the visual quality. macOS is also supported with Metal (API).
You can now play PS5 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.
It supports multiple input gaming devices. You can even use mouse input for first-person-shooter games. PS5 & PS4 controller has plug and play support on the emulator.
PS5 Emulator is not made for illegal activities, and they have a strict policy about piracy. All resources are obtained via a reverse engineering of legally owned devices, games, and information present on the internet. The main objective of this project is to enhance the gaming experience, research, and provide education about the core concepts of device emulation.
