Orbital emulator for Mac

Orbital emulator for Mac


Orbital is an virtualization-based PS4 emulator and debugger project written in C++ for PC compatible with Mac OS.

The first and the only legit emulator which allows you to play Play Station 4 games on Apple devices.

It uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the PS4 exclusives on high-end machines.

There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the download link below.

This project is not ready for end users. 

No binaries are provided, so you must build each of the three components (BIOS, GRUB, QEMU) yourself.

Furthermore, configuring the emulator to do something will be hard, as you will need to extract your own console keys.

More information and guides on this matter will be available in the future.


PS4 is based on x64 architecture so Orbital runs natively on Mac OS systems by taking advantage of OGRE, Vulcan API and Orbital hardware-assisted virtualization.

  • CPU: x86-64 CPU with AVX/BMI1 and virtualization extensions
  • RAM: 8 GB minimim (12 GB recommended)
