We are excited to announce that after a year of dedication on developing a working PS5 emulator software, we finally made it to work!
The PS5Emux project has been released for usage and the first version is available to download on the files page.
The idea for the project started a year after Sony released their PlayStation 5 console. Since computer hardware parts became more stronger with time, our team realized it would be possible to optimize todays modern CPUs and graphic cards and make them emulate the specifications which PS5 console has. And after long time of optimization, tweaking and trying, we have finally succeeded to make PS5 emulation possible.
It’s supported for PC with Windows & macOS operating systems.
Mobile versions of the app of Android (.apk) & iOS are still under development.

Where to download PS5 games from?
PS5Emux is connected to its own server with a database where some of the most popular PS5 games are uploaded on.
You can download games from inside the emulator Games section. Once you start downloading desired game, it will download in a background while emulator is running. Just leave it open, and then a game will be saved into the PS5Emux’ installation folder of your PC.
Is it possible to run PS4 games on PS5Emux?
Yes it is. PS5Emux is able to run all PlayStation consoles’ games: PS4, PS3, PS2 & PS1. Most popular games of every platform are able to download from our server, which is accessible from Games section inside PS5Emux. For less popular games, you will have to download them from internet and manually add them as an image file (.ISO) into the emulator. Check out the Help section inside PS5Emux which describes how to do this in detail.
Can I connect my PSN account with the emulator?
Yes you can. Inside PS5Emux’ PSN section you will be able to login to the PlayStation Network and use your existing PSN account while playing games, receive trophies, chat with friends etc. Just as you use it on the PS5 console.
How come it’s possible to emulate PS5 games with a weaker GPU then a PS5 console has?
It’s not possible to run PS5 games with every graphic card using PS5Emux. Please scroll above to check the PS5Emux minimum system requirements.
However, by running it on a weaker GPU cards you won’t get same graphic quality and fast & smooth FPS as you would with high spec ones. For example, using RTX 3090 TI 24 GB card will provide same quality and gaming experience as the actual PlayStation 5 console does. (Considering every other hardware part meets the recommended system requirements too.)
So, if you are playing games on PS5Emux will lower PC specs, they will run, but their graphic quality will be displayed lower then if you use recommended specifications. FPS may also be reduced too.
Can I use a joystick to play with the PS5Emux emulator?
Yes, it’s possible to use a regular PC joystick or a PS5’s DualSense to play on PS5Emux. You just need to add it & configure it inside PS5Emux’ Config section.
How to chat with other PS5Emux users?
Once you installed the emulator, go to the Profile section and register your PS5Emux account. Then go to the Chatroom section where you will be able to text with another emulator users. We decided to make an online chatroom inside the emulator so players can hang out & make new friends.
Is there a PS5Emux smartphone app?
Not yet. But are working hard to make PS5Emux supported for Android and iOS devices. Making a mobile version of the PS5 emulator is much challenging task then for a PC because smartphones have a weaker hardware specs compared to a desktop computers. However, once a PS5Emux mobile app gets released, it will optimize PS5 games and reduce their graphics quality a bit comparing when they are run on an actual PlayStation 5 console. You won’t get a same HQ display experience as when you are playing them on a PS5, but at least you will be able to run them on a smartphone.
