While the scene patiently awaits for the in-development RetroArch (PS4) port to drop on homebrew capable PlayStation 4's. We have seen another emulation developer Znullptr (David Miller) in the PS4 Scene.This developer has decided to also share his talents with new emulation ports for the PS4 (GameOS). While there has been many options on the PS4 Linux side of things (just take a look at the PlayStation 4 Linux Channel for many examples) native homebrew emulators for the PS4 has been lacking, as we have heavily relied on PS2 homebrew through the Ps2 Classic emulator on the PS4 console. Not quite the most ideal situation for the PS4. but has filled the gaps of limited emulation quite nicely. Those gaps are starting to close, First we seen a mGBA (Gameboy Advance) and Reicast (Dreamcast) beta builds sprinkle around the scene in various soft release's, now comes a Yabause (Sega Saturn) emulator. While this is not a polished product it does present some limitations, most 3D games will provide many slowdowns currently, however most 2d games will perform well, keep in mind these projects are early ports for the PS4 and hopefully improve over time .
The developer (Znullptr) has a Patreon Page setup if you would like to support the developer's projects. So far we have seen mGBA, Reicast and Yabause builds and there have been additional plans for other emulators like PCSX-R (PlayStation 1) .Let us know what games are working for you well in this new Sega Saturn emulator for the PS4.

The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..Continue reading
Advanced Power Options (v1.10) Released: A XMB MOD for all CFW & HENA handy XMB (main menu) modification for the PlayStation 3 that is now compatible with either CFW (Custom FirmWare) or HEN (Homebrew ENabler) has been updated to v1.10 with a new name as well. This project has seen contributions from various developer's that include @DeViL303, @kozarovv, @mysis @Joonie and @lmn7 and collectively have created Advance Power Options (v1.10). This sleek mod allows for additional Power Options to be displayed and executed with ease from the comfort of the XMB. The new inclusions for your XMB will include a fast Shut Down (no conformation is asked), A Soft Reboot (a faster reboot, doesn't completely shutdown system) or a Hard Reboot (which shuts down slower, as it's a complete system restart). Plus, the mod provides a few additional Advanced Options and these include the ability to Reboot in Recovery Mode (which can be a handy feature, as the official method from Sony involves a process of holding the power button down on your console for awhile), If you desire even faster access to a few functions within the Recovery Mode the devs have you covered here as well as there is options to Rebuild Database or Check the File-System on reboot by selection those included options on the XMB as well. For HEN user's that about sums up things, but CFW user's you have one more additional function which is optional but Also included is an optional pkg to Boot into OtherOS. Overall, this is a great collection of work and a superb modification for your PS3's XMB to add new functionality. View a preview of this mod before installing it, by checking out the developer's YouTube video included below (video coverage is of v1.04) to get an idea of what this mod is all about for CFW and now HEN user's also.

PCSX-R (PS4 Port) - PlayStation (PS1 on PS4) Emulator by ZnullptrThis 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 .Continue reading
