PlayStation 5 Emulator for PC

Last updt. 23 July 2024

PCSX5 is an experimental PS5 Emulator project for Windows and macOS. The first and the only legit emulator which allows you to play PS5 games on both PC & Mac. It uses OpenGL, Vulkan and DirectX as its back-end API renderers and runs most of the PS5 exclusives on high-end machines. There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the download section.

Native PS5 Emulation

PS5 is based on x86_64 architecture so PCSX5 runs natively on Windows systems by taking advantage of OGRE, Vulcan API and Orbital hardware-assisted virtualization. PCSX5 renders games smoothly without compromising the visual quality. macOS is also supported with Metal (API), check FAQ,s for more info.

Unlocked FPS

You can now play PS4 and PS5 games on PC & MAC at variable frame rates with buttery smooth experience as most of the titles can now run at 60 FPS and beyond. If you have a dedicated GPU that has Vulkan support, then you can expect a decent performance.

Multiple Input Devices

PCSX5 supports multiple input gaming devices. You can even use mouse input for first-person-shooter games. PS4, PS5 & XBOX controllers have plug and play support on PCSX5 emulator.

We are still on the road of development for PS5 Emulator.

PCSX5 is capable of many great things, thanks to our developers and supporters who are contributing to this PS5 Emulator project. We are still on a long road to achieve good emulation performance, but we are working hard to make the best PlayStation 5 titles playable on PC & Mac.
