    This news is a bit late but wanted to get everyone caught up on this project for the PlayStation 4 as Developer Znullptr (David Miller) has recently developed a new emulator port for exploited PS4 console (currently 5.05 being the latest exploitable firmware in public) called PCSX-R which as you may of guessed is a PlayStation 1 emulator. The developer has said he ceased emulation development (source code release is planned) on the PS4 but we have seen a few tweets (1, 2) that could suggest he is still working on a few things (like a mednafen port that maybe is a better options for PS1 gameplay(?) ) but that remains to be seen. This PS1 emulator port seems to be working good enough to play many titles (some issue's are outlined below in the notes by markus95). PS4 gameplay footage can viewed in the videos provided below. So far we have seen this emulation developer soft release several PoC emulators for the PS4 that have included Yabause (A Sega Saturn Emulator w/ speed issue's) / Reicast (DreamCast w/ speed issue's) & ,mGBA (GameBoy Advance). Since this is an early concept and build you have to manually swap your roms for a game you want to play, details about the process can be seen below courtesy of @Markus95 .

      Note: below is Google Translation (originally posted @ Logic-Sunrise by @Markus95)

      Based on PSCX-Reloaded, this emulator will allow you to launch your PS1 ISO's on your PS4, but with some restrictions unfortunately. Indeed, PSCX-R will be able to execute only one iso at a time, you will need every time to replace your iso on your USB key in order to change the game (see instruction below).

      In addition, cinematics rament and sound saccade (preview in the video), it is here the second beta version which includes bugs and does not work at 100%, the saves do not work either at recent news. Some games are still playable like Tekken for example. Some games are however not compatible, unfortunately Znullptr abandons the development of its emulators, PSCX-R will not be updated by the latter. The source code will be published on Github when it is cleaned, hoping that other devs continue to improve this emulator that could become indispensable for retro PS1 lovers.

      Tutorial for operation
      1. Install the fpkg PSX.pkg
      2. Copy / paste your rom in .bin format to the root of your USB key by renaming it game.bin
      3. Copy / paste by FTP memcard.mcr in data / pcsxr / ... (optional because the saves do not work)
      4. Launch PSCX-R from your PS4 main menu
      5. Your game will launch automatically (as seen in video)
