Steam running on the PS4 (Video)

A message for gamers as the holiday season is here:
Hey Folks, it is the shopping season and that means most of us will be buying gaming stuff in November and December. will be looking for the best deals and let you know about them. For example in July 2016, our twitter followers and mailing list subscribers were among the first to know about an Uncharted 4 Special edition deal for $19, a 75% discount at the time!
Follow us on twitter to stay up to date. I also suggest to subscribe to our deals mailing list below for full deal updates. Note: this mailing list is mostly useful for people in the US.

    sony get rekt.

  2. Oh Yes.

    I know this has nothing to do with this.But somebody has got to revive the DREAMCAST EMU for the PSP that no one can fnd today.

    • Jessica

      That is pointless. PSP has not even close the power needed to run dreamcast games.

    • CPUzX

      How the//f/ //u/ //c// /k// did you come to the assumption that the PSP even had enough power to emulate the Dreamcast in the first place.

    • CPUzX

      Censorship has never felt this good.

    • redblade67

      I agree , someone or some group should continue the dreamcast project for psp , but instead of doing it on psp , do it on the ps vita , its a stronger handheld then psp.

      • Zeke

        The Vita doesn’t stand a chance of running a Dreamcast emulator. It’s simply not powerful enough. With Rejuvenate you can run most Genesis and SNES titles well. Except for the SFX chip SNES stuff like Star Fox. So if it can’t emulate a cartridge console from the early 90s perfectly it’s not going to manage a CD-esque one with more complex hardware from the late 1990s. Obviously the Vita is stronger than the PSP but not by enough to have Dreamcast, N64, PS2 etc emulators by any means.

        • attichris

          I think N64 could pretty easily run on vita, a 600mhz 256MB iphone 3GS could run Mario 64 at 10-20 fps, vita would be just fine.

  3. The Nameless Monster

    I’m really struggling between keeping my 1.76 PS4 or updating it to play Uncharted 4.
    With the Neo PS4 rumor around, i don’t think i will buy a spare PS4 just to play a game. But it’s Uncharted 4, i’ve wait for it for too long … Really really hard choice

    • Eddie 2P

      save for new ps4

    • lolzoar

      Can’t you buy Uncharted 4 on PSN on your PC and then download it on your PS4 just by connecting to the internet, without actually accessing the PS Store or updating firmware?

      • The Nameless Monster

        But does PSN game required some minimum firmware to start? I already bought the disc ver from the day one, and it required to update my PS4 firmware in order to play 🙁
        I will buy another PS4 though, but i will probably wait until Neo PS4 released then get one of that

        • Xpl01Tr

          Buy the Neo when it comes out and have that be your retail console … Uncharted 4 is great but not worth updating for.

    • Zero981065

      Ill trade you my updated ps4

    • MarSprite

      I honestly am amazed by anyone who hasn’t updated. I think the rarity of PS4s with old firmware is going to be high, because of the features of the system. Maybe you should hold off on updating since it may have cash value to do so in the long term?

  4. Salar

    Good News 😀

  5. kditd

    borrow another ps4?

  6. PS4 is about to become the best Steam Machine on the market!

  7. psp

    Why care about steam os on ps4 with that low cpu power!! waste time… If I need buy games from stream. I prefer buy games for my i7-6700k.

  8. dakota

    Come on dude, it’s just Arch, not ARCH

    It would be like saying I use GENTOO or UBUNTU Linux


    • Dockotis

      By that notion, referring to the OS as Linux is false. It is GNU/Linux, were Linux is the name of, and referencing, the Kernel.
      Arch is a Distro name, as is Gentoo, or Ubuntu, all built around the Linux Kernel.

  9. pussywater

    Eu uso o debian no ps4 e funciona lindamente all works.

  10. kazuya

    …and if you listen very carefully at 30 seconds, you can hear the exact moment he turns on his separate Linux box.

    “Someone does this cool thing for the PS4 hack scene, I can’t do the same so I’ll just dump all over it and moan there’s no cool PS4 hacks”.

    That it runs Steam at all is kinda miraculous. That it doesn’t yet do it full speed is kinda like moaning about your smartphone’s touch keyboard because it’s not a full size desktop PC keyboard, IMO.
