PS Vita, PS3 Emulator Possibly in the Works
A new job posting from PlayStation Studios makes fans look forward to PS Vita and PS3 emulator again. As detected by ResetEra Uzupedro, Sony is hiring a software development engineer who will work specifically as a “classic engineer” to develop new emulators, among other tasks. PS3 emulation seems like a dream, but never say never!
Fans have long been waiting for a suitable PS3 emulator
Over the years, we’ve heard numerous reports that Sony is officially looking to bring PS3 emulation to the PS5, with the general consensus that the PS3’s architecture is to blame for the company dragging its feet. However, many in the gaming community argue that emulation from PS3 to PS5 is certainly possible, but it’s something Sony probably doesn’t want to invest time and resources in. Some have even suggested that the company should hire RPCS3 developers, the team behind the popular unofficial PS3 cross-platform, open source emulator.
“Our position as a software development engineer works on PlayStation Studios’ team of tools and technology to support the recently re-released classics for PS4 and PS5, ”says the job description. “Classic games are run by emulating legacy PlayStation platforms. As a Classics engineer, you would work closely with a group of other engineers, producers, and quality control teams to fix bugs, add new features, and develop new ones. emulators “.
While it’s clear that the job description mentioned refers to the PS Plus Premium classics, that hasn’t stopped fans from creating their hopes.
On a separate note, it’s encouraging to see that Sony is looking to incorporate people who are dedicated to the PS Plus Premium classics because they had a pretty tough launch.
