Wait what? Is this headline correctly? Yes, your eyes doesn't trick you! Following up after the newest Release of Psxitarch Linux Version 2.0, several Developers and Teams such as Team PSXITA (who brought you this very good Linux Distribution for your PS4) - the Great Developers behind the RPCS3 Project (who brings you a very strong PS3 Emulator for both PC and Linux Systems [constant readers from this Forum already knows them by their monthly Progress Reports]) - but also Developers like @valentinbreiz together with several others from @PS4LINUX brings you in combination a good-looking and most of all, promising method to play your older PS3 Game Titles on your PS4 running on System Firmware 5.05. But they won't stop there. The YouTube-Channel behind @PS4LINUX showcases also how they was able to play the very famous Nintendo Switch Launch Title "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" on a PS4 Pro with System Firmware 5.05 by using the also well-known Cemu Emulator through Linux. Sure, you might want to ask how this is possible but more importantly, how you can do this as well. Don't worry, it isn't so difficult as you might think. But first we should check all those showcases and then we can analyze every step needed to enjoy your favourite PS3 and Wii U Game Titles on your PS4.

So how is this possible? Well, the answer is simple. When you have your PS4 "sleeping" on System Firmware 5.05, you already know that you have the luck to use a Kernel Exploit which gives you the ability to install a Linux Distribution such as the Psxitarch Linux as mentioned before. And while on Linux, you will also find out that those great Emulator Solutions such as RPCS3's PS3 Emulator are not only available for Windows-PC's, but also for Linux as well. Sure both the PS4 and PS4 Pro aren't so powerful like a full-fledged PC and yes, those Games showcased above have a few issues due to the weaker Hardware but the fact that such a strong Emulator running on a PS4 with Linux installed, itself is very impressive.
But why this looks so promising even with slower PS4 Hardware? The answer is here simple as well. Emulators like RPCS3 or Cemu aren't new. With the mentioned monthly Progress Reports, you are already able to recognize how those Emulators get better and better Support for various Game Titles by each new month. You have to understand that when the Developers try new Games on their Emulators, they also need to try various settings and other options at first to make a Game more playable. Even on stronger and more expensive PC Hardware, emulating those Game Titles aren't a easy Task and they start with major issues mostly as well. But as on those Videos shown, you are able to tinker with those settings for your own to give you a playable experience on your PS4. Together with the opportunity that you can contribute your results in their respective Communities, this show that using Linux for Emulating older Game Titles can be the "Real Deal".
But it isn't only the Emulator Software itself which deserves your applause. As showcased in the third video, it is also possible for you to play your older Classic Titles which saw a Linux Release as well, such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive - or you probably know it better as CS:GO. Sure, this isn't the first attempt to play Linux Games on the PS4 but thanks to a well-developed Linux Distribution such as PSXitarch, it shows only minor issues in Gameplay, as you can see inside the video. And while this special Linux Distribution for your PS4 already showed in it's initial release how good it was implemented with the PS4 Hardware - especially GPU-wise - there is no Problem to use a Emulator written for Windows-PC's only by using the well-known Wine Application. With Wine installed, you are able to run Windows-Applications on your Linux System, as you already probably know. So there is no problem to emulate the Great Cemu Emulator through Wine by emulating a Wii U Game like Zelda. There is only one word left to say: Emu-ception
But we aren't finished yet. To give you a opportunity for getting a good base by emulating your older PS3 Classics on your PS4, our own Team Member @Roxanne also made her homework by bringing you a new "PS3 Classics Emulator Compatibility List" on PS4 Development Wiki. With such a List, as previous known for other older Game Titles such as playing "PS2 Classics on PS4" with nearly 1000 Game Titles for instance, she gives you the possibility to report and to contribute your results very easily. At first it looks very empty, that's true but with your passion and your help, you can fill this List with your Games Collection. And with that, you can help the community by your own and other Gamers can check your Results if they search for a specific Game Title. So it's time to grab your old Games out from your dusty Library by giving them a "2nd Chance" running on your PS4, don't you think?
