@tom I know but I mean, some pretty weird x86-based thangs have been set up to run on qemu yknow? (also I was in the audience at that talk lol)
@wxcafe oh omg nice
@wxcafe but I also don't rly see the point of getting it to run in a vm tbh...
@tom well, then you can do whatever you want to memory/the kernel, load whatever code you want, and run games on your PC
@wxcafe wouldn't that be super inefficient? Like, running the OS is one thing but games seem... unlikely imo. The drivers are probably at least partly custom so getting it to run well with standard pc hardware would require lots of effort
@wxcafe and I mean piracy is already possible on the PS4 but as with all consoles since like the Wii/PS3/360 gen, it comes with trade offs (mainly the fact that you can't rly use online services bc there's a great risk of being banned)
@tom well I mean it'd be a lot easier to develop homebrew on a VM on your desktop than on the machine itself, I guess, plus being able to access all memory etc would be nice.
but yeahit would be pretty hard, but I would say not as hard as i.e. dolphin cause the arch isn't as foreign to x86 yknow?
