There are many providers on the Internet who offer ROMs games and ISOs for PlayStation, N64, GBA or other consoles. The games are partly in multilingual (several languages are available in the game).


What about an emulator for the PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch?

Currently, a Nintendo Switch and PS4 emulator for Windows is being developed. However, it could take months, if not years, before it finally appears. Game console technologies are becoming increasingly complex. Since the 3rd generation (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii) the consoles are much more a home system with which you can download applications, stream or watch movies. A PSX, Nintendo 64, GBA or PlayStation 2 could only play games. No apps or anything.

Nowadays, however, much more needs to be emulated than just the games themselves. Programmers are facing a very big challenge here. The good PC but could even simulate PS4 or Xbox One games are no news. The only question is how many frames per second the games can be played and what the PC requires a system requirement.
