Despite being two generations old, PS Vita and PS3 are two of the greatest consoles of all time. With every passing year, it’s getting increasingly difficult to acquire an original PS3 console. Consequently, gamers have now started looking toward emulators.
Well, you will be surprised to know that Sony is hiring a software development engineer who will specifically work as a “classics engineer” to develop new emulators, among other tasks. The job description states that,
“Our Software Development Engineer position works on the Tools and Technology team at PlayStation Studios to support the newly relaunched Classics for PS4 and PS5,”
Furthermore, it also states that,
“Classic games run via emulation of legacy PlayStation platforms. As a Classics engineer, you would work closely with a group of other engineers, producers, and QA teams to fix bugs, add new features, and develop new emulators.”
If the entire project turns out to be a success, Sony may soon bring PS3 emulation to the PS5. Once that’s done users will be able to enjoy the older titles on current-gen consoles.
According to reliable sources, the emulator services might be exclusively available to the PlayStation Plus Premium tier subscribers.
Well, if you have been a part of the emulator community for a while now then you might know that PS3 is one of the hardest consoles to emulate thanks to the PS3’s CPU architecture.
