Orbital emulator for PC
Orbital is an virtualization-based PS4 Emulator and debugger project written in C++ for PC compatible with Windows OS.
The first and the only legit emulator which allows you to play Play Station 4 games on computer desktop 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 section.
The current state of Orbital at booting decrypted kernels can be followed in the issue tracker: both PS4 4.55 and PS4 5.00 have been tested.
You can also get occasional updates and news via Telegram.
This emulator supports multiple input gaming devices.
You can even use mouse input for first-person-shooter games; PS4 controllers have plug and play support on this emulator.
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 this app runs natively on Windows 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)
- OS: Windows 7 (or above)
- Graphics: GPU with software support for Vulkan 1.0+
This application is optimized to use up to 8 cores of a processor but requires at least 4 core processor with SSE-4.2 and AVX.
Orbital features an auto-updater which will prompt you if you want to update after loading the emulator.
You can either accept, deny or disable updates all together if you wish, though it is not recommended due to the volume of fixes that roll out each day.
